HERE’S WHAT I KNOW AND WHAT I DID
Today, more than ever, it’s frighteningly easy to become overwhelmed with information, opinions and ideas. So much so that we often get side tracked and distracted from our overarching event brief. And then there’s also the danger of embracing disruption for the wrong reasons instead of using it as an effective tool.
At ICEDAY, this year, we have a fantastic spread of speakers and participants telling us about what they know and how they did what they did.
From our keynote Katherine McCartney -- Principle of PDW, Inc. and the former Producer of TED Conferences.

Now, who has been responsible leading and producing TED’s Conferences?
Katherine McCartney -- Principle of PDW, Inc. and the former Producer of TED Conferences.
And...who is our Keynote speaker at this year’s ICEDAY conference? Yep you’ve guessed it.
Katherine will share the story of the growth and evolution of the conference over a span of 18 years, and what she learned along the way as well as thoughts about life and life choices.
‘The challenge, of course, is coming up with new innovative ideas, and continually raising the bar. Our goal was always to be leading edge. Overall, the logistical component in many ways has gotten easier because of our experience, commitment, and understanding of the audience. We worked very hard at this.’
