Last week Pass announced changes to how speakers are going to be selected for their annual conference (you can read the announcement here.
There’s been a bit of a debate about the changes but as far as I can tell, these seem to be for the better (right?).
Inviting speakers with a proven track record of delivering high-quality presentations can only be a good thing and guaranteeing that a (albeit) small number of new speakers will be there will hopefully prevent presenting at Pass Summit becoming only available to a certain circle of people.
I’ve only been to the event once and I have to say, I found quite a few of the sessions there to be below-par. Don’t get me wrong, I also saw a few great sessions but if these changes improve the overall quality then I say that they are a good thing. Of course, it’s all about the execution so only time will tell if these make the expected improvements but I think Pass are doing this right.
Have a good week.
