Speak the Future!

Are we ready to talk about the future? As the world moves rapidly through the 4th Industrial Revolution, the professional speaking community must answer these questions:

1. How are today’s hot issues relevant to us as professional speakers?
2. What will the future of professional speaking look like?
3. How can we, as professional speakers, impact the world during this time of radical change?
4. How can we help the world transform through our profession?
5. What digital tools can we adopt to make our work easier and our presentations even more impactful?
