PASS Speaker Idol 2015

In 2014, PASS offered a new type of session at their Global Summit event: Speaker Idol.

Initiated by Denny Cherry (b | t), the concept is:
  • To provide an opportunity for community speakers
  • Who haven't yet presented a regular session at PASS Summit
  • A chance to present to a panel of judges - like American Idol, but without singing. (Sadly. Or not.)
  • For a guaranteed regular session at the next PASS Summit!
This is a FANTASTIC idea, and I was fortunate enough to participate that year. And I encourage EVERYONE who is eligible to participate this year and every year they can.

Why?
  • You get a chance to present at Summit, even if you don't get to the final round
  • You are getting free feedback from PASS Summit speakers
  • Who know exactly how you feel up on the stage
  • Who WANT to see you deliver a full session next year
You can find out more about the 2015 Speaker Idol here:

There is absolutely no downside.

Even if you don't get chosen, I recommend that you attend as many Speaker Idol sessions as you can. The feedback from the judges will help you become a better speaker, and would cost you hundreds of dollars from a professional speaking coach (and may not be as useful since they're probably not a PASS speaker).
