Congrats there, nice job.

For me, it’s all about comfort. If people are comfortable in the environment, they’re far more likely to open up to new opportunities. Stick the 5-foot wallflower in the crowded bar surrounded by 6-foot extroverts, and no one is going to know how good they are at usability and design. Drop the noise level and stick them on a couch though, and the ideas flow freely, I’ve found.

And this is coming from one of those 6-foot extroverts too, heh.

I suppose it’s all about knowing the types of folks that you’ll be having at your events. And I echo the above sentiments that a great guest speaker can do all of the above. Make folks comfortable as well as give them something to talk about.

Good luck.
