Rehashing old content at the same venue?

Speak Schmeak

I spoke at a conference last week, where the keynote speaker rehashed several significant and memorable stories that she had used the year before at the same conference, but in a breakout session. I'm wondering if this is a faux pas, or if it's okay for speakers to recycle the same content for pretty much the same audience, especially if one presentation is a breakout and one is a keynote.

What's the point of speech contests?

Speak Schmeak

Presentation experts (me included) expend a lot of energy reminding our audiences and clients that a PowerPoint is not a presentation, but is meant to enhance the message of the speaker.

Be clear about the offer - I try hard to bring the best speakers for the specific content I’m trying to share with my audience. Hash tags on each session as well as the event might help. But I think more of the business networking happens during the event, in between the sessions, than at dinners and tweetups. I don't care too much about breakout sessions or small group / one-on-one time - I just want to be inspired.
