An Exceptional Experience
I’m not a fan of panels as presentation format. I’ve been on them and attended them, and in both roles, I’ve found that the experience is often less than it might have been with a well-prepared speaker. Still I was honored when I was invited to join the business blogging panel at WordCampDallas 2008.
Had I know John Pozadzides before that event, I might have known this panel would be an exception.
The original panel was to be Aaron Brazell, Mark Ghosh, and Liz Strauss — that’s me. What fun when the panel started and Matt Mullenweg came up to sit down along with us in the big chairs at the Frisco City Hall.
The rest is history. John moderated the panel as well as any television host. He played devil’s advocate to get the discussion going. He was sure to connect the thoughts from one question to the next so that the discussion went well beyond the surface chat of most panel discussions.
Watch the video. Even if you don’t blog for business, seeing a panel this well done is an exceptional experience.
Thank you, John P.
