Last year was my first time at Connected Kenya and I wrote this post suggesting some changes. The best part is that the program this year has changed.
The program has been changed to include breakout sessions, it has different tracks, the speakers seem to be on topic and the projection seems to be working ok…….
But… how do we deal with death by powerpoint, do we change font, do we say presentations are on for 15 minutes or what do we do with those power points?
I was seated next to Sam Gichuru of Nailab and he was not impressed with the presentations, he thought much should change in the presentations area.
“The set up is brilliant, the tech is good, the process and venue is good but the content needs to be repackaged to reflect the dynamics of attendees, less powerpoint and more discussions beteween the presenters and the audience,” said Gichuru.
The bigger point is, we have Oracle, SAP, Dimension Data, Liquid Telecom, Orange etc as sponsors, how about we engage in discussions regarding implementation of projects and how to overcome strategies.
For instance, government paid for 14 Oracle modules in IFMIS, how comes only three have been implemented, or something like that. We can get powerpoint as attachments or via bluetooth and read and discuss between the speakers and delegates.
For better details, please read the year old post 🙂
