State of DIA Panel Discussion – Watch the Video

It took awhile, but as promised I’ve got the panel discussion at the State of DIA 2010 posted for your viewing pleasure. If you live in or fly through Denver, you’ll probably be interested here. It’s just over 42 minutes of dorkiness that may put half of you to sleep. But hey, I had a great time up there alongside Brent McBratney from Airbus and futurist David Houle.

Oh, and in case you were wondering, that’s actually Gregg Moss from local station KUSA moderating and not Kelsey Grammer. I did a double take on that myself. If you make it all the way through, leave your thoughts in the comments section below.

But if Southwest stays, passengers may be left with just them, resulting in jacked up fares with only one competitor,…

Mr Houle was beautifully prepared. You could learn a lot from his example. CJTaylor

Your delivery could have been much more energized with less hesitancy and “filler.” .. Did you know what questions were going to be asked of you before you arrived? I remember many things which the futurist said..I remember his name. His comments and insights were provocative, especially his statements about the evolution of an idea from resistance to acceptance, his story about the IRS and TSA, his specific comments about an airport being ready to face the globe, His distinctions about the modernity of airports in Uruguay and Munich and their differences from twentieth century airports. i cannot remember a… Read more »

By filler he means some of those pauses, likes, ums, and uhhs.

filler: Lots of audible sound ( “um, ah, you know” ) to connect sentences.. The priority is having some focused forethought about content. If you told me i were having to speak about the future of DIA, i would be sure to have a definite personal impression of the airport or something that happened at the airport that might be instructive. Even if on your prior visits were seamless, that could be instructive. You are a very able writer; I am writing merely to encourage you for any speaking assignment. For you and the Airbus guy, the answers and demeanor… Read more »
