PASS Summit 2014 – Speaker Idol

The Speaker Idol participants were released yesterday and I was lucky enough to make the cut. With that being said, I guess I will be speaking at the PASS Summit 2014, well kind-of.

This will be the first ever Speaker Idol competition and the group of people speaking are very talented. I think this will be the start of a great program to give less known speakers (speaking for myself only) an opportunity on the big stage and receive some great speaking feedback. We all like that, ummm… yea…

Does this schedule mean I’m going first?


  • Reeves Smith
  • Pieter Vanhove
  • Mike Byrd
  • Wagdy Ishac


  • Sergey Olontsev
  • Ed Leighton-Dick
  • Rob Volk
  • Tim Costello


  • John Flannery
  • Luan Moreno Medeiros Maciel
  • Mitchell Bottel
  • Jason Carter

Best of luck everyone.
