Some lessons learned

Interesting, the disparity between speaking before a group of employees in a large organization (STRATCOM) and a group of CEO’s in a somewhat smaller group.  In the first case, it was a bit of a struggle to get the group to engage; in the second, it was a struggle to get through the main points of what I intended to deliver, since they were so engaged, and wanted to run with each idea presented.

Finding that sweet spot between getting through the key points of my message, and letting the group explore and run with what is on their minds will be a continuing challenge, and will be different with each group.
