People are more afraid of public speaking than dying
Sharing ideas and speaking on panels is an important way to contribute to the betterment of our architectural community. Even more important than public speaking is public listening.
I've had the absolute pleasure of presenting to a variety of groups through conference workshops, but also two times as a panelist (Vancouver & Chicago) and even as the keynote speaker at the Nova Scotia Association of Architects annual conference in Halifax. Lately speaking opportunities are through Zoom. While the platform is limiting in its total engagement, it does allow groups to bring in a more diverse range of speakers as they're not paying for travel costs.
