After any of Tim’s keynotes, he can also facilitate a panel discussion to help extend the message and focus on implementation. How it works: Tim will interview up to 3 pre-selected innovative industry leaders either in a session after his keynote OR as part of the conference closing general session. Tim will thoughtfully prepare questions to ask the panel that will both support the presentation key points and challenge the audience.
A few weeks before the program, Tim will have a phone conference call with the panel to provide an overview of the presentation and to develop a list of questions that will be asked after his keynote along with ideas for implementation. He will also meet with the panel on site to ensure the presentation is on target, well prepared, and relevant. The audience will be encouraged to participate in the dialogue through the use of buzz groups, online polling, and/or Twitter. The goal is to combine a session that creates a great blend of motivational, innovative and compelling content along with the wisdom, insights, and experience from industry experts.
