I agree that it is a time for innovation and collaboration. Thank you for creating this forum for your community. I appreciate you! Here are some of my main value adds for this conversation:
1) In terms of how I'm currently adjusting - I'm pivoting my talk to make it "Zoom" friendly. The talk I give fairly regularly requires audience engagement, so I was scratching my head as to how that would translate to a virtual model. One conversation with a fellow colleague solved that challenge! Now I am ready to rock! I have a way of doing it that still will bring engagement AND works with the virtual model. And I'm LOVING my green screen virtual backgrounds on zoom - super fun!
2) Now more than ever it's a time to get yourself set up to provide your services in a virtual / digital way. Get the high quality web cam, tripod, lighting, mic (if needed - my headset works better than my expensive mic), green screen and you're good to go!
3) GOLD MINE opportunity for keynote speakers .... If you are only making $ from keynote (speaker fees), NOW is the time to diversify your speaking income! Time to create some services (virtual workshop, consulting, coaching, digital product, etc.) to offer your community. And use the time that you would have been traveling right now to get it done. It's AMAZING what can be created when you have focused time.
I'd love to hear from others out there - I know this is a big "who moved my cheese" moment for all of us, but I truly think we create amazing things with support and collaboration.
