Next week is the 2021 World Conference of the Professional Speechwriters Association—offered “festival style,” in digestible, entertaining, interactive midday (Eastern Time) sessions Tuesday through Friday.
It’ll be virtual, but it’ll be visceral—and in the happy, warm spirit of the last in-person gathering we held, back in 2019. Behold!
Even speechwriters who were spoiled by that joy loved last year’s virtual conference.
“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.”
If you’re coming this year, we’re so glad to have you.
If you haven’t registered, you may still do so, today.
We’d all hate to wait another whole year to see you again.
