#NYC19!!!!! Hi Jenn
Christina DiMicelli
29:23
Also, how do I know what others want to hear that I may have to say? I always feel like everyone has already heard it.
Lauren Kocher
31:24
Love that! Different people connect with different perspectives
Debra Jacoby
33:52
Yes. Repeating ideas is ok!!!
Christina DiMicelli
36:44
I'll mention that 1 really helpful thing was talking to you Desiree and having you tell me you are an introvert at heart (as am I) - that was super helpful to see that I could actually do this well.
Susan Bearden
37:40
Yes - "You can't be a prophet in your own land"
Desiree Alexander
38:35
Awww! Thanks Christina!
Simon Helton
40:18
Yesss—thanks for speaking to the introverts :)
Debra Jacoby
40:37
Thank you for saying that the introverts may not love the after events.
Rebecca Krupp
41:27
You might not love the after events, but if you share your passion, other people will jump on board and get excited about what you do! :)
Susan Bearden
41:28
Always helpful to have a wingperson :)
Debra Jacoby
43:41
So glad you said that! I did the same presentation forever until I figured out how to expand.
Mary Shaw
46:10
Yes! Be honest about it!!! My experience.
Mary Shaw
48:31
That’s awesome! I’ve been doing some of that, as well. We have to use our voice to become a part of the narrative. Great ideas!
Mary Shaw
52:21
Best approach! Use the unfortunate, but real life experiences as teachable moments.
Christina DiMicelli
52:25
That's my other roadblock... the need for everything to "be perfect" before I'm ready to put it out there. It means I never actually get started.
Mary Shaw
53:01
That’s just a part of the journey. :-)
Jennifer Hall
54:38
My Bitmoji “Jenmoji” is head of my PR dept.
Christina DiMicelli
54:51
Desiree, I'm waiting for your Google Classroom course on branding!
Rebecca Krupp
55:39
Getting those invitations is so exciting and empowering. Being noticed is such a confidence boost!
Lauren Kocher
58:08
Please leave any questions in the chat!
Simon Helton
58:10
I have to run, but thank you both! This was great
Christina DiMicelli
59:05
Me too - we chatted at the NYC energizer about it briefly
John Hullock
59:05
Which social platforms do you find most effective for getting your message out?
Ysanne Heald
59:05
Do you invite people as panelists to online events and if so is there an ideal number?
Rebecca Krupp
59:35
I also have to run. Thank you for your insights and for encouraging our participation! You both rock.
Christina DiMicelli
01:00:44
Gotta run - fantastic webinar. Greatly appreciate the honest approach. Thanks!
Jim Mendonis
01:00:50
To go back to something mentioned earlier... I always fear that I am going to propose a session that people already know about. How do you know that you are presenting edtech that is in demand?
Mary Shaw
01:01:57
Indeed! This is probably one of my absolute FAV topics! I’ve been presenting for 15 years now. This is awesome information everyone! :-)
Jennifer Hall
01:02:10
Appreciate the mention of LGBTQ+ being a demographic for diversity.
Mary Shaw
01:02:27
You have to be persistent!
Jim Mendonis
01:05:13
Thank you - great advice!
Mary Shaw
01:05:14
True indeed!
