Have you ever been to a professional conference and loved the presentations or hated them? Or, worse, were bored and frustrated, feeling as if you did not get your money's worth or spent your time well?
I am part of a small group tasked with creating recommendations on how to improve live presentations at library conferences for a professional association. I want to hear the attendee point of view: What you like and what you don't like. If you have a favorite presenter, what does he or she do that you like? Why do you like what they do? I would like only first-person accounts - what you think and feel - don't need books, lists, links, etc. Don't need theory–need your real-world experience and opinions.
You can communicate off the list, if you like. All comments will be kept anonymous.
