What goes into being a 21st century Watson? Find out October 4, 2017 at a free training seminar. The seminar will be hosted by the Professional Private Investigators Association of Colorado (PPIAC) at the Denver Press Club (DPC) in Downtown Denver.
When people ask me about my primary freelance gig blogging and curating social media communities for a private investigator, they sometimes get confused. "You're a private investigator?" they ask, trying to clarify.
"No," I respond. I am not a private investigator. I blog for one.” I am the only member of the almost twenty person team comprising Ross Investigators who is not licensed to practice in the State of Colorado. My job as blogger and social media engagement strategist for the Denver, Colorado based PI firm does not require a license from the Colorado Department of Regulatory Agencies. In fact, the service I provide --writing and publishing-- is protected by the 1st amendment.
Because The Denver Private Investigator Blog is a trade publication, I serve a readership consisting of private detectives, security professionals, surveillance operatives, lawyers and legal private investigators who practice in the State of Colorado and nationwide.
My readers are mostly private investigators. That said, the private investigator field encompasses a wide range of professionals and expertise. My readers run asset searches, public records searches, witness interviews and help with criminal defense. They fly drones, do accident investigation, responsible party identification and provide custody case assistance. Some do security and other do surveillance. A lot of them have police, legal and military backgrounds.
But back to this conversation I always end up having when someone asks what kind of freelance writing assignments I take on. Explaining how a 2017 private investigator firm functions and what PIs do still isn't necessarily sufficient for people still struggling to grasp what my daily functions are. Enter, the Sherlock and Watson metaphor.
"I am Watson---not Sherlock," I finally learned to explain. "As a modern day Watson ---sans firearms training and military background-- I blog and do social media engagement for a private investigator firm." They'd get it almost immediately. "
On Wednesday, October 4th at 6:30 p.m. fellow PPIAC members, DAC members and members of the legal, private investigator and journalism community are invited to attend my free blogging and social media for private investigators training seminar at The Denver Press Club.
Although the training runs 6:30 to 7:30 attendees are encouraged to arrive at 5:30 to try the "Gumshoe" cocktail that the club bartender, Zack is shaking up for the occasion and network in the Press Club's historic landmark building in Downtown Denver. The Denver Press Club is located in at 1330 Glenarm Place, Denver, Colorado 80204. It is the oldest press club in the country. Street parking is available and there are three public lots within a block of 13th and Glenarm. This will be the first PPIAC event hosted at the Press Club.
