Presentation Coach, Trainer, and Speaker

Not this year

Sadly, I will not be attending the DEMOmobile 2004 conference this year. I am not very happy about that because it's where I get to do my research and have new stories to tell and examples to draw from. The good news is I am going to the CEDIA EXPO in Indianapolis. It's quite different than DEMOmobile. This conference is all about home theaters and custom home installers. It's the biggest show in the U.S. for home electronics and the creature comforts that go with having your own home theater. I'll post some notes and photos just for the fun of it. I plan to take copious notes on every product demo I see.

So, if you are reading this as a presenting company at DEMOmobile 2004 (6-minute or 1-minute spot), I hope you have a peak experience in your life this week. If you are well prepared and worked hard at this demo, the results should be a story you tell for many years. Remember, if you have fun, if you are compelling, and if you are passionate while demoing your product, the audience will remember you for good reasons. Be sure and plan out the feelings you want the audience to have when you are finished. How they feel after your demo is the key to attracting people to you and your product.

Until next time...Demo with passion or don't demo at all.
