Introduction

Purpose: Companies, associations and people spend a tonne of money, time, attention and stress hosting events, conferences and webinars. The events and meeting business is an $845B industry in the US alone (Source: Event Industry Council). There are wide-ranging opinions on what an "ideal"  keynote and business presentation looks like. We really want to know what you think works.

The Output from this Survey:
We'll be sharing all the insights with respondents post-survey and applying any insights into our own business.

The Request:
Seventeen quickie questions - that's it - we are surveying a wide cross section of people on what people and companies should aim for business presentation-wise.

Expectation setting: Below is a simple survey. It will take approximately 5-10 minutes to complete. We will be happy to share the final outcome of the answers in early 2019.
