Best of 2011: Neen James on the Future of Speakers

December 28, 2011, 8:30 AM EST

When searching for your event speaker, seek expertise first, performance second. Traditional formats are out the window. Attendees demand authenticity and authority. They need speakers to deliver true thought leadership and share intellectual property that will propel the industry. The speakers of the future engage both live and virtual audiences simultaneously, captivate crowds before an event through social media, participate during the event to understand attendees, and deliver rock-star, unique expertise from the platform.
