Upon starting to read the news yesterday, I immediately saw a number of articles which were focused on the Democratic National Convention, which starts today.
Perhaps because I am in the business of holding the attention of an audience with the ability to deliver a powerful message with significant presence and energy – my attention was drawn to a common thread in these articles: Will the virtual speakers be able to deliver the same type of powerful message in this new, virtual online format as they did in prior convention years? One need only remember the powerful message delivered by Barak Obama in 2004 to remember a great convention speech – it defined a generation!
Inspired by the question, I went down into my virtual broadcast studio and filmed a clip to address the question, and delivered it with my trademark energy and enthusiasm.
We’re in this virtual world for a long time – ‘virtual need not suck!’
Let’s see how they do!
