For Timers and Speakers Everywhere Dear speakers everywhere: I don't care how awesome your info is, going over your allotted time is incredibly rude and disrespectful. — Bex (@Medibrat) March 26, 2017 It took some digging to find what had triggered this thought. @BenZabar I was put in this position as last speaker of the day. I had prepared and managed to cut some of my talk without losing cohesion. — Bex (@Medibrat) March 26, 2017 @BenZabar What I lost, however, was the audience. They were tired and hungry because the 3 previous speakers had gone over. — Bex (@Medibrat) March 26, 2017 And the thoughts got a lot of reaction, too. Even if the audience is enjoying it, you are taking time out of a fellow speaker. While putting the organization in an uncomfortable spot. https://t.co/dWvnZOo1Hn — Leo Soto (@leosoto) March 26, 2017 @ali1m @Medibrat @AAGBI NO talk, EVER is made better by over running. Every talk is made better by cutting its length — #hellomynameisRoss (@ffolliet) March 26, 2017 @ali1m the same speaker did it TWICE in 2d. And not just a little over. 15min!! Forced the following speakers to cut theirs short for time. — Bex (@Medibrat) March 26, 2017 Enough said?
