Comment on Convincing Staff to Learn a New Thing by davidleeking

Complacency and comfort - definitely not ways to adapt and change

I agree. In my various volunteer experiences I have faced similar issues. Complacency in the face of change and comfort with the status quo seem to be all too familiar to the human condition.

Comment on Why NOT Speak? by davidleeking

I've definitely seen some of those presentations, and have wondered "why is this person speaking?" Good addition!

Thanks for the comment Walt! Good additions/suggestions. I certainly love hearing from newer voices. One thing I like about some of the library technology conferences like Computers in Libraries is that they usually have a good mix. Yes, they still invite me to share stuff. But they also have a lot of people speaking that I have never heard of, and I always learn something from them. Same at ALA events - I hear different/new/etc ideas there from people I've never met, which I appreciate.

As someone who's helped organize a few conferences, spoken at many, and attended countless, dare I add: Think about *not* speaking if what you've done is not new, not innovative, or not applicable to the needs of many other people. Do some research to see if the topic you're considering presenting on is something that others really want and need to understand. Make sure you have something worthwhile to contribute. I've seen people speak on really yawn-inducing topics, and on topics that a tiny fraction of colleagues need to know about. I've also seen folks discuss something they think is new, but isn't. Of course, conf organizers should be able to weed these out, but ... In short, to offer really useful presentations, ascertain that people actually want and need to know about your content. Don't just do it to add a line to your CV.

As an old white cis male, I'd put that last reason first--and as someone who's spoken by invitation around 100 times,I'd suggest there's another category: When to stop speaking and give other people their turn. At some point, I suspect some repeat speakers become "easy invites" for conference organizers, and that may limit opportunities for newer, more diverse, perhaps more challenging speeches.

Brutal, but fair I think.
