An Australian at RTC Asia
Well it’s been over three weeks since I arrived back in Australia from #RTC_ASIA and whilst the humidity and smog (fires in Jakarta) are long gone, there remains the fond memories of a very well-run conference. Whilst I’ve only been directly involved with RTC Australasian committee for the past 18 months, I was very proud to see the RTC Asia committee get a 200-person event up and running in their inaugural year. The quality of venue, social events and local and overseas speakers impressed many of the delegates I spoke to. I found myself in the special role of bell ringer to announce the start of sessions. Like the overhead projectionist of past, the ringing of a desk bell to gain the attention over hundreds of delegates is an oft underrated skill. Not just a constant or random ding, a trap for young players, but a three-ring combination every 8 steps seems to create the right sense of urgency to hurry delegates to their next presentation without eliciting panic.
For those wanting to know more, I will be holding a lab at the RTC Australasia 2016 or you can pay exorbitant amounts money to engage my consultancy services at http://www.bellringingconsult.io/
Once again congrats to Phil Lazurus, Adam Sheather, Heidi Lam and respective teams!
