Out with the long and in with the short. Tim Sanders, former Chief Solutions Officer at Yahoo, New York Times best selling business author and top rated speaker believes that time is at a premium, along with attention and engagement.
Time is something that not many of us have a lot of and the people of the meeting world can agree that less is more. When it comes to information intake we are swimming in too much of it and meetings that run too long. The solution is to keep everything brief and to the point.
Sanders attended the annual TED conference where he was amazed by the unusual format of 20 minute or less keynotes. TED talks seem to have started a trend seeing as the format has caught on in the meeting industry world. The result is compact presentations, focused on takeaway advice and single-point stories.
