Posted on September 28, 2011

I spoke today at the Social Intranet Summit in Vancouver, which was put on by the good folks at Thought Farmer.  Great conference, all-around, but I was especially struck by how well it worked for conference speakers.  I speak at 3-4 conferences a year, and there were just so many little things they did right which I don’t see often.

For example:

All of these things came together to make for a really great experience, from a speaker’s standpoint.  My talk was demonstrably better because of it.  And speakers like to give good talks, which means I really want to come back to SISV next year and talk again.

If you put on a conference, I hope you find this list as compelling to read as I felt compelled to write it.
