Experts Live 2023

Thursday, May 25, I had the honor of being 1 of the many speakers at Experts Live 2023.

Scenario 1: Across columns

The event actually started a bit on Wednesday evening, with the so-called speaker dinner. That was an evening to which all speakers were also invited, it was also possible to buy a ticket for this.

It was a pleasant evening with food, drinks and a nice band. It was also a great time to catch up with a lot of speakers who were present.

Drone videos have also been made and there was a photographer so soon there will alsobe more photos and videos on .

On Thursday was the event itself. Before Dona Sarkar’s keynote started, an opening film was also made this year. For those who have already seen it, there was also a cameo by a certain blog author ;-).

Unfortunately, the film is not online yet, but I will share it as soon as it is available. A nice experience also to do the recordings and then see the end result on a big screen.

The day itself was what you can expect from a large event (+- 1200 visitors). It was a fun day, with a lot of fun sessions, lots of networking and a nice snack and drink.

This year, for the first time, there was the possibility to do 20 minutes sessions in addition to the usual 50 minutes. This also gave a lot of new speakers with a slightly shorter story the opportunity to be at this event.

The last 3 years I have been on the content panel, so I was also allowed to help with the preselection of the sessions, and now I also had the opportunity to do a session myself.

Since I’m not a seasoned speaker yet, and the nerves went around nicely, it went well (I think). Forgot a few small things in my story, but fortunately that didn’t matter for the flow.

Afterwards I spoke to people who were in the session. of the attendees who had encountered some of the problems that were discussed himself and now also understood why it all worked :-) So in that respect, a pure win. Now let’s see what is said in the evaluations.

Thank you all for the presence, support and just being great!
