Part of the motivation behind CMEpalooza is to provide a presentation platform for individuals who aren’t big fans of public speaking and tend to shy away from opportunities to present at conference like the ACEHP’s Annual Conference. If you fall into this category, I encourage you to consider giving CMEpalooza a try. The only other person you will see during your presentation is me…and I can hide if you want me to! It will just be you and your webcam. There might be a few others watching the live stream, but you won’t really know unless I tell you and I’m perfectly capable of lying to you if that makes you feel better.
I personally think that CMEpalooza is a great, low risk format for trying out a presentation, especially for those who think they get too nervous speaking in front of a crowd. It truly is open for anyone to present, not just polished, experienced speakers. So, why not give it a try? Or at least consider it. If you want to run your idea past me before submitting it, I’d be happy to take a look at it. Just shoot me an email at dwarnick@theCMEguy.com. I’m thrilled to see a few new names on the agenda – I hope to see a few more!
