A chief executive officer was to give the keynote address at one important conference. That’s why he asked one of his top employees to write a twenty minute speech for him. After that important event the chef was furious. “Why did you write an hour long speech for me?” he bellowed. “Half the audience got up and left the hall before I finished my speech!”
The confused employer replied, “Sir, I wrote you a 20 minute speech. But I also gave you the two extra copies you requested.” :)
The only thing I’m confused about this story is the attentive and concerned audience. I guess in a real life nobody would notice any difference. Am I right? Do you have an experience of attending any really interesting IT training or event? If not, in which one would you like to participate?
Personally, I think nearly all conferences are dull and boring.
What topics are the most interesting for you?
