This is a unique opportunity for participants to address a group of up to 20 professionals from the book publishing, speaking and media industries including the best-selling authors from Saturday night plus literary agents, publicists, editors, booksellers, speaker bureau reps, media interviewers, television/Hollywood producers and others who will listen to each 1-minute answer to the question "So what's your book about" and provide feedback for the participants (5 will give feedback for each participant) about what worked and what didn't. Each participant's 1-minute presentation will be videotaped. At the end of all participant 1-minute presentations and feedback, we will have a roundtable discussion with the industry professionals, with each one sharing their one tip for how participants can best approach them with their projects and anything each professional would like to offer participants as a next step (based on what they've just heard from them). Participants will also have an opportunity to ask questions during this time.
