Strange speaking venues part 2

by Scott | 7/29/2009

Redfin recently hosted a free event called The Naked Truth, for tech entrepreneurs. The event was held at the normally very cool Seattle Sculpture Park. The problem is the amphitheater on the grounds creates some odd problems for public speaking.

  • They put the stage almost 30 feet from the front row. Even with good seats it’s a row of hard to see talking heads, sitting in the shade, while the audience is in the sun.
  • The amphitheater is right by the street, making for lots of background noise.
  • Some of the talk was lively, but the did break a few of the rules listed in why panel sessions suck.
