It Is Not About You

How many times do you attend a business conference or event, where the moderator or interviewer insists on hijacking the microphone? I am sorry it is not about YOU. We are here to listen to the guest speakers, panellists and interviewees. You are there to ask interesting and provocative questions and keep the conversation moving forward. You are not the star. If you insist on being so and if you are incapable of parking your ego, please don’t expect your audience to stay in their seats. If the event host blindly ignores your approach for their own commercial reasons or an unwillingness to confront your lousy behaviour, remember attendees have the ultimate sanction, they won’t show up next time.
