A few months ago I was delighted to be invited to speak once again at AdviserTechLIVE – an event that focuses on helping financial advisers, financial planners and wealth managers understand how their brand, and the right digital technologies, can truly transform their businesses.
I love presenting LIVE. I love the pre-presentation nervous energy, the adrenalin buzz of standing up in front of a room of people and the networking (and having a post-event beer) with attendees after. It’s an exciting experience.
But fast-forward to 2021 and this time the event wouldn’t actually be live.
Thanks to Covid, attendees can choose one of three dates. And to make sure everyone gets a consistent experience, we were asked to pre-record our presentations.
Now you might think that pre-recording a speech is less nerve-wracking than rocking up at a live event. I certainly did. Turns out I was wrong. Very wrong!
