The most unexpected, amazing answer from a half-serious question

Art is never giving the same speech twice.

After yesterday’s keynote, mingling, and teardown, headed out the Resort porte cochere to the car. The most unexpected, amazing answer from a half-serious question.

Three women from the audience were engaged in their own deep conversation. But I made cordial small talk and then continued walking to the car.

Over my shoulder I hear, “Can I ask you a question?”

Sure, I said, turning around, but not walking closer.

They asked a few more questions, shared a story, and I was making a transition to leave and I said, “Aren’t you supposed to be in a breakout session”?

“Yes, but your presentation sparked a conversation and before we knew it our breakout session was half over, so we’re skipping it.”

Be the spark.

It is like a great movie. It is one thing to be entertained while it is going on, but a great movie is the one that makes you think and discuss afterwards. Great job!
