As a speaker and a conference organiser, I heartily concur with just about every item in this list.
Marc and I have chatted before about the challenges involved in arranging the flow of talks at a conference. It’s great that he’s sharing his thoughts here.
I agree completely with Andy on this one:
Want more quality and diversity in your conferences? Pay your speakers.
By pure coincidence, Andy was at a SXSW event in Las Vegas this week.
