Bijoy Goswami on How to Turn a Presentation into a Conversation

In Chapter 14 of 17 in his 2014 Capture Your Flag interview, community leader Bijoy Goswami answers "How Did You Learn to Give a More Effective South By Southwest Panel and Talk?" Goswami shares how he finds speaking solo or speaking on a panel is about turning that one-way dialogue into a two-way conversation with an audience. At South By Southwest, he gravitates toward more social meetups and core conversation structures. For him it is all about identifying audience backgrounds and interests and tailoring a presentation to meet their needs.
