While preparing my presentation set-up for a keynote at a recent conference, the meeting planner ran toward me in a panic, apologizing for being pulled in ten different directions, simultaneously.

Everyone knows what the experience is like attending a live music concert. Whether it’s Beethoven or The Grateful Dead, the atmosphere is alive with electricity. There’s camaraderie amongst you and the stranger sitting next to you that is unique to being at a live event. You look at them and nod in recognition of what a great time you’re having.
