When you peruse the 2021 program, you’ll see that the Professional Speechwriters Association has made full use of the recruiting advantages for holding one more virtual conference before returning to our traditional in-personal event in 2022.
And in case you didn’t join us for last year’s virtual affair, here are a few typical responses from participants.
“I was skeptical about this online meeting. It’s working perfectly.”
“If the objective was that we would feel (as much as possible) like being on Georgetown campus you have it. … We had really good, useful, trusted conversations. Towards the end, one person asked for advice, got several ideas to help moving ahead, and concluded by thanking us and saying ‘I can feel love at this table.’”
“This wonderful, inspiring feeling of breathing the same air and tuning in to the same pulse–well that feeling is just as strong, and perhaps even higher valued this year.”
“It has been engaging, inspiring, exciting, and intermittently infuriating—which is exactly what I want and expect from a convening of this kind. From the first day, I have come away bubbling with ideas for how to apply the insights and examples of your presenters to my own work. And here on the eve of our final session, I am close to overflowing.”
“At one point I was actually clapping at my screen.”
“HOLY $#!=….. This is the best conference ever.”
