What's the point of speech contests?
DECEMBER 16, 2010
We speak at conferences where an audience member is torn between three different breakout sessions, and might leave in the middle to catch parts of each. We also speak to audiences who are engaged, enthusiastic and supportive -- don't get me wrong. Or do anything that doesn't explicitly involve making meaningful connections with engaged audiences where ideas are shared, learning happens, and participants walk away armed for work and life.
