I don’t have the time to describe what yesterday was like and do it any justice at this point. There haven’t been enough spare minutes to put something together. Once the conference ends later today, I’ll summarize everything in greater detail.
To give a brief description, it was simply spectacular. I came to the event expecting that Mr. Gore would be with us for only a short while, perhaps enough to give us a version of his talk after which point, his staff would take over the detailed review of all the slides.
But that wasn’t the case at all. Mr. Gore took the stage at 8:30 and was with us for the entire day, until nearly 7 p.m. And for the evening reception’s entertainment with Kathy Mattea, he stayed for that as well, until her performance ended.
His review of the slide deck was perfect. Very thorough, split into thirds, with breakout reviews for each table to do for 30 minutes, and then Q&A sessions with Mr. Gore elaborating on any segments or answering questions that weren’t addressed in the slide show.
Today’s sessions cover some more practical aspects of how to give the talk. Now that the content has been reviewed, it’s time to cover the process.
An amazing experience. That’s the only way I can describe it.
