16 Dec A guest speaker is the wrong ‘idea’.
The ‘idea’ of a guest speaker is wrong.Flat out wrong.You don’t need a guest speaker.You need a guest listener.
You need someone who can read the room.Create an atmosphere.Be themselves-vulnerable.And connect.
All easier said than done. But never more necessary than now-after what we’ve all been through in the spotlight of the last 2 years and will continue to go through in the shadows privately.
Please don’t engage me as a guest speaker.
I can’t play that part.
I care far to much for disruption,
thought and reflection.I value a conversation.And the funny thing is so does your audience,despite all the tech and distraction-they still love a good old fashioned chat.IF you can provide the time and space I can provide the ‘chat’.
I create conversation.And I believe conversation to be much more valuable than ‘just’ speaking.
