Slides from Keynote at Training 2010
I had the great pleasure to present a keynote address yesterday at Training 2010. While I’ve presented at dozens and dozens of conferences over the years, this was my first true keynote. Was I nervous? Yeah, I have to admit, just a bit. Complicating matters was the fact that the other keynote presenter (they had two back-to-back) was significantly delayed as a result of air travel issues. So my directions were to basically go on stage not knowing whether I was going to need to be on for 30 min, 45 min, 60 min or even more. The conference was also using an audience response system for the first time which I insanely decided to use. I’m happy to report that it went off pretty seamlessly despite all sorts of potential for disaster.
The good news is that I was able to get the data from the audience response system and boy was it interesting. I don’t want to spoil the fun, but suffice to say, the training industry is a mess in terms of it’s understanding of it’s role and responsibilities.
For now, I just want to give you the slides. Tomorrow or perhaps over the weekend, I’ll do a full write up on the preso and the audience polling.
