This is Part Two of a long ‘perfect storm’ trip. Originally it was just a trip to the big European radio convention to speak. Then research and strategic meetings were scheduled days before and after. And then another big research meeting in Mexico. So this trip is almost three weeks long. It starts in Spain and then moves to Paris, Milan, Slovenia (I’ll explain in a later post) back to Paris, and on to Mexico.
This is my third time speaking at Radio Days Europe. It’s a big convention, much bigger than its US counterpart. Usually I have between 500 and 800 people in my session and I am in the big room. This time I think a had a little more than 500. Designing these presentations is so stressful. I get nervous, I worry that my material won’t be useful enough or relevant enough.
In this one, when I couldn’t find the right photographs to accompany my stories, examples, and main points, I decided to have them drawn. When I couldn’t find anyone to draw them, I just drew them myself.
Two days of walking, resting, eating, and drinking great coffee.
