Some of the "bright" ideas I had for this year were (a) to make the sessions variable length (anywhere from 30 to 120 minutes), (b) to have different skill levels for different sessions, and (c) to have four breakout sessions running at once instead of three.
Why do I put "bright" in quotes? Because while that seemed like a good idea at the time, it made scheduling all the sessions a nightmare. Katie and I literally spent the past two days trying to arrange the sessions. We had to fall back onto the "old school" method of using actual paper!
Check out my dining room table:
Seriously, this agenda is absolutely amazing (something like 63 breakout sessions and 67 hours of content). This is going to be such an awesome conference and I'm really excited for it! We have an incredible speaking staff with incredible sessions.
There's still time to register if you haven't done so yet. (The hotels are almost sold out though, so register soon!)
