2020 has redefined what it means to be a “professional speaker.”
Around the world, people are adjusting their technology and techniques to suit the needs of the present - a dramatic pivot from in-person to the world of virtual events.

To celebrate Professional Speakers Day on Aug. 7, my colleagues and I put together a special episode of In the Know - so you can see exactly what not to do as a virtual event speaker.
