For all the reasons we understand, opportunities for delivering live keynotes have been severely restricted this year. However, that has not prevented most of the speakers on this list from transitioning to online presentations and that is a reality that we will have to become accustomed to for the foreseeable future.
So, this contest, now in its second year, affords us a wonderful opportunity to show our appreciation to the speakers and presenters who have impressed us with their dynamism, content and style.
It is a pretty eclectic list and there will be names that you possibly don’t recognize. We started with those we have either seen speak live or via a stream. Then we investigated all of the nominees, many of whom we didn’t know, so we had to seek the opinions of friends and colleagues we trust. Eventually, we arrived at fifty.
