011 The Podcast Report – The Podcast Pavilion & The Podcast Awards

Hey everyone, Cliff Ravenscraft here. I’m back with another episode of The Podcast Report with my co-host, Megan Enloe.

The Podcast Podcast Pavilion

One of the major highlights of the NMX event in January will be the Podcast Pavilion. Megan and I discuss the vision behind the Podcast Pavilion and share only a few details about why we are so excited about this portion of the show. Please know that there is so much more that we were not yet able to share in this episode of The Podcast Report. However, as soon as we confirm the additional details, we will be sharing some more exciting news about the Podcast Pavilion.

The Podcast Awards

On September 18th, NMX announced that the 8th Annual Podcast Awards would be hosted at NMX this January. The most exciting part of this for me is the fact that Leo Laporte will be our emcee for the podcast awards ceremony on Monday, January 7th.

How to Be The Best BlogWorld Speaker You Can Be

Author:

To offer value as a speaker at BlogWorld & New Media Expo, you don’t need to run a million dollar business or have 10,000 followers on Twitter or have written a bestselling book or any of those things. Those are nice, but not necessary. No, you need two things:

1. To have experience and knowledge that other people want to learn about.
2. To be able to communicate that knowledge clearly.

That’s all you need. Really. Don’t get me wrong, it’s great to have various measures of success – and we all have them in one way or another – but when it comes down to it, that is what it’s all about.

So, if I’ve convinced you of that, and speaking is something that you want to do more and more in the future, please allow me to offer some tips to help you be the best BlogWorld speaker that you can be.

This advice comes from my experience as a speaker, which includes participating in three panels in the last two years of BlogWorld. Last year, I led the “Social Media: The Bad and The Ugly” panel with Robert Scoble, Amber Naslund and Wayne Sutton.

Prepare for Your Session
“We’ll meet up for lunch on the day of our session” is NOT acceptable preparation. In fact, it’s completely unacceptable and disrespectful to BlogWorld, the organizers of the event, the attendees and everyone involved.

Speaking of Speakers

Author:

keynote It has been a long road or journey, one that I might pack for differently given what I know now, but a journey that has been fun.  I first agreed to help work this conference as far back as 2006 when I first met Rick Calvert in Seattle at a blogging conference.  I have seen our BlogWorld & New Media Expo go from an idea to one of the largest, if not THE largest conferences in this industry.  I am very thankful for the opportunity to have worked in the capacity of Conference Chairman this year, putting together the lineup.  I have some big shoes to fill with Dave Taylor having done this in previous events.  It has been a number of 20 hour days and lots of phone calls and meetings and emails and tweets and pony express riders to get to this day but we are finally here.

The speaker “grid” as we like to call it has been posted and we will be discussing it at length today on Blog World Expo Radio on Blog Talk Radio.  My guest on the show will be Rob Walch, the brains behind the podcasting and video tracks.  The tracks Rob worked on were very important because they are a culmination of experts that will be representing our first blending of New Media Expo and BlogWorld& New Media Expo.  As you may remember, we acquired that event that was similar in nature to ours and that announcement was made back in December of 2008.  We hope that the lineup we have for this year will be as great as the podcasting and videocasting world has come to expect from that event.

Feel free to give us feedback on the lineup thus far.  As you can see with its current state it is a living and breathing document.  Believe me when I say I have tried numerous times to beat it into submission and make it behave, and most of the time it has beat me back.  There are some tracks that we have yet to put into the system and some that are still be worked on and probably the most difficult items are yet to be completed, the keynotes for the event.  I can assure you those will be dynamite!

Thank you for your patience, especially to all of the hundreds, of people that made submissions for sessions or presentations.  It was very difficult to choose from the number of presentations.  We did not have any difficulty in getting quality speakers from the many that submitted.  I would urge you to get your ticket and register for this group of fine presentations. The speakers and experts we have assembled will allow you to justify spending some time in Las Vegas, October 15-17, 2009.
