    I like these aspects of the submission, and they should be retained:

    • I think this is an important topic and perspective

    I think the submission could be improved by:

    • Less text in the slides. A gathering can have 70 to 100 people in the room so easy-to-read slides are essential
    • The presentation doesn't build to a conclusion. It just ends. What is the shape of your story? Where is it going? What should the participant do with the information learned? I think if you emphasize the tension at the beginning, develope the tension in the talk, the resolve the tension at the end (recommendation? Areas for further investigation, you will have a more stimulating talk.

    Thank you for your talk proposal, and I see a lot of interest in business and enterprise agility nowadays, so my guess is audience will like the topic.  Do you consider making this talk as an experience sharing talk based on what you see happening in a given organization rather than keeping it generic? In the last conference, I attended I see many participants looking for examples of implementations.

    I also seek your help in looking at other proposals and sharing your feedback on it since that can help speakers in refining their talk before the reviewers look at them and take the call. Your past talk experience can help here.

      Hi Saket,

      Thank you for taking time to review the proposal and wonderful feedback. I have seen similar trends recently as well. I will be talking about real life examples and also make it more interactive with few activities.

      I will be more than happy to review other proposals and contribute to this conference in many other ways.
