In 2015, we hosted the first ever PMx TED-like talks for the podcast community. These short form talks
are bare bones, to the point, and very informative! Slideshows are prohibited, but props and expertise are welcomed and encouraged.
The grand prize of last year’s PMx competition was a guaranteed speaking spot at the next year’s event! We’re continuing the tradition this year, as PMx will be on the big stages of Podcast Movement in front of hundreds of fellow podcasters and attendees the day before PM18 officially kicks off.
And new for this year, there has been a competition element placed on the PMx talks! While the talk formats has not changed, a panel of judges will score each talk, and the highest scored talk will not only take home the PMx Competition award, but also be recognized on stage at the Academy of Podcasters Awards, and will be automatically given a speaking spot at Podcast Movement 2018!
A suite of carefully prepared 18 minute talks, demonstrations, and performances that cover a wide range of subjects. These sessions are used to foster learning, inspiration, and above all, provoke conversations that matter. With no slide decks or videos, focus will solely be on the speaker.
PMx will present multiple issues and a diversity of voices from many podcasting perspectives and niches.
Community-driven and bias-free content
PMx is organized by volunteers from the podcasting community and lacks any commercial agenda. Its goal is to spark conversation, connection, and community.
What PMx is not:
PMx is not a marketing conference. It isn’t limited to one topic or field, and it isn’t used to sell something.
PMx is not organized by or for special-interest political, religious, or commercial groups.
PMx is not a platform for professional speakers, such as motivational speakers or professional life coaches. Its purpose is to give a platform to those who don’t often have one, but have great contributions to give to the podcasting space.
PMx is not focused on entrepreneurship, business, or technology. Diversity of topics is key!
