TMBA 213: What Makes a Great Conference Talk?

The fellas are switching things up and coming to you from Europe this week.  Having just finished speaking at the MicroConf event in Prague, they’ve got insights coming out of their ears and just couldn’t wait to share them with you.

You’ll hear about some of the spotlight speakers from the event and the incredible frameworks, modalities and systems they employ to see wild success in the software and SAAS industries.

Listen to this week’s show and learn:

  • Patrick McKenzie’s single most effective way to make more revenue (and perhaps the scariest).
  • Why being a craftsman is the winning long-term play over opportunism.
  • Rob Walling’s public speaking and presentation techniques that keep listeners on the edge of their seats.
  • Nathan Barry’s concept of more revenue from less customers.
  • Adii Pienaar’s controversial method for validating a product concept.
