    @Don ๐Ÿ Kerr Thanks Don, I would very much like to play a round of golf with you on this course! The river rafting was to me the most intimidating activity โ€“ underwater not knowing how long and which way is up; a huge fright. The microlight looks seductively easy but it did not help at all that my seat on the aircraft was slightly loose! As I mention; exhilaration and fear are close friends in these adventures.

    Awesome @Anne Thornley-Brown! Even if I weren't planning a trip for team building, just to visit Toronto would be great. It's been years since I was there. I'm only 4.5 hours from Toronto. The videos were SO enticing. Lake Ontario is beautiful and Toronto looks so clean. It appears you have some great team building workshops coming up. I just told someone the other day I want to learn how to create cool videos, so I'm looking for a class in town. Maybe one day I will have a few people to work with me (even if it's just a hobby), it would be fun to go to the video DIY team building workshop.

    Great discussion and i think the argument could be made for either. I prefer to speak or present at anytime. Going first sets the standard of comparison, but if someone comes along with a better presentation/understanding of issues/solutions you can be unseated. The one thing i would say about speaking after first or last, i get to see the audience and their response to speakers. This has two effects, one i get to know them potentially and i get to tweak my ad lib comments towards a "known" audience.

    In the end i would agree with you in general, your presentation needs to be the dragon slayer that slays the dragon first or after everyone else has just beat it to death

    Javier ๐Ÿ beBee
    23/03/2017 #16 Javier ๐Ÿ beBee
    When evaluating sequential information (as list of vendor presentation), people might get more influenced by the first presentation and this pattern is known as a โ€œprimacy effectโ€œ. In some instances, the final presentation has more more influence than the first presentation. Such a pattern is known as the โ€œrecency effectโ€œ. Now the question is which effect is more dominant and in which situations.

    Is there a distinct advantage in presenting first versus last?
    Should you pick an interview slot that is first in line or last in line?
    Should you speak first or last?

    You should present, interview or speak first, if the others will follow you immediately and there will be a delay between the series of presentations and the judgment or decision because of primacy effect.

    On the other hand, you should present, interview or speak last, if there will be a delay between the presentations or interviews and the decision-makers will need to render judgment or decision right after the last presentation or interview because of recency effect. From my sales experience, such scenarios happen quite often, where customers will schedule vendor presentations separated by time and then render judgement fairly quickly after the last presentation. So if you are involved in enterprise sales, think about the recency effect when offered a choice to pick a presentation slot.

    I found this great info at https://beyondheadlines.wordpress.com/2010/04/20/should-you-present-first-or-last/
    Anne Thornley-Brown
    23/03/2017 #15 Anne Thornley-Brown
    Speakers were asked if they would prefer to present first or last? End of day presentations slots are always a problem. It's bad design that makes this spot untenable.

    Event and meeting planners would be wise to build in a buffer and end the day with a networking opportunity. Let's say your agenda is to end at 5:00, reserve the last 45 minutes to an hour for a networking reception or event. Schedule that to go from 4: 00 or 4:15 to 6:00 or 6:30. So if anything gets cut short, it's the networking. Make it compelling so that people want to stick around.

    NEVER schedule departure for dinner right after the day's meeting agenda ends. Opt for a 8:00 or 7:30 departure for an 8:00 dinner seating.
    Anne Thornley-Brown
    23/03/2017 #14 Anne Thornley-Brown
    Definitely first. Without exception, every time I have presented last, the meeting, conference or event has fallen behind schedule and the compressed time I had to begin with has been chopped down even further. It's an impossible situation, especially when there is a hard stop due to a dinner reservation. On a going forward basis, I will not be accepting any engagements during this time slot.

    Susan Rooks
    23/03/2017 #4 Susan Rooks
    Funny how our minds work, isn't it, @Graham๐Ÿ Edwards? Mine immediately went to "last," because I love to leave them laughing, as it were. Since all my presentations -- whether they are about American grammar or DiSC or other communication skills -- include laughter, I love being last. I believe that the last speaker has a rare opportunity to build on what others have said (if possible), but definitely has a chance to be the one most remembered.

    Great question! I wonder who else will weigh in.

    I have a preference for being the first after lunch. If I had to choose between being first or last, I would have to choose first. I've done pro bono speaking engagements that cost me more to be there, than the initial ROI. However, I find that by being first, I have more time to mingle with the participants and start building relationships.

    I like what he did to "Mad World". Not a fan of Adam Lambert, especially when he fronted Queen, but he did an incredible Mad World. I think we grew up with the same songs. I was 15 when I heard Seasons and the story behind it. Picked up a guitar wanting to learn how to play it. Toya Wilcox was big at the time.

    The amusing thing here for me is that I heard that song a few years under 50 years ago and I only get to find out about Marrakesh in this buzz !

    For me music is milestones more than beats - for this is where it captures our individuality and so what we happen to like is different to what it happens to mean. A great example is the song that stamped my psyche after 9/11 - which was Gary Jules https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4N3N1MlvVc4

    When Pink Floyd sang Another Brick in the Wall that is a memory ticker that coincides with Alice Cooper "Schools Out Forever" - you can guess I was at a school which all of us did not want to be at. I can enjoy masses amount of commercial pap because I keep liking separate from meaning. For sure when we talk about song composition and beat this fits in the middle space between like and meaning - but music for me is what flows through my imagination, so much so it is individuality and music becomes DNA.

    Perhaps the song I don't like to hear but which carries the most haunting meaning for me is Terry Jacks "Seasons in the Sun"

    #14 CSNY's most poignant track was Four Dead in Ohio , an anthem to the Kent State shootings when the Ohio National Guard killed four students protesting the Vietnam War and the incursion into Cambodia

    Four Dead in Ohio - Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CfOx2AQOW1A

    These shootings led to mass Student strikes, and it was H.R. Haldeman, Nixon's Chief of Staff involved in Watergate who marked the Kent State shootings as the moment that created the deep scrutiny on Nixon's administration, that eventually uncovered Watergate and led to the impeachment of President Richard Nixon.

    The Marrekech Express is Crosby, Still, Nash's most joyful song, Four Dead in Ohio their most significant. Close

    Having been nearly 50 years since Crosby Stills and Nash recorded the song "Marakech Express" it is about time I actually saw something of the real Marrakech and now I have, it was a great way to catch a glimpse of it in this sublime buzz. I don't remember a buzz of yours before which broke into a novelist dialogue but the effect of the 2nd section added some personal "being there" and it worked. Great photographs as always and I concur with @Paul Walters about the debonaire bit.

    I have been in Morroco three times, speaking french does obviously help to get by, the last time we were in Tangier with the children two years ago and the kids were treated like mini gods, and gosh I love mint tea and Marrakesh is so special !!!

    #5 Not to mention the hammams! You'd make a mighty fine colossus of a man if ever you wore a keffiyeh. I would have loved to have lived in Beirut or Cairo during the glory days. I would think twice now, but Oman is definitely on the cards...

    I have a love hate relationship with much of Arabia, Dean-san, but today your photographic detail awakens old memories of the aromas and sounds of the suk, the adhan, and the tastes of long Ramadan night delicacies.

    #3 Not it's colour, it's suppleness. This leather Moroccan slippers are awesome! Besides, I'm sure those tanneries don't smell half as bad as some of the toilets you have in the Stans....

    Apparently, it isn't about the devices or they would be banned across the board. The BC article says it is due to concerns that they may be used for terrorist attacks.

    Wondering who else does business in these areas and may be affected. Canada is considering a ban too.

    So, event planners, as we approach the end of Q1 2017, how has business been going this year?

    - Has your business been impacted by the political uncertainty in the USA and Europe?

    - How about hotels? Are you still attracting a lot of corporate meetings, incentives, and conferences with overnight stays?

    - Any changes from 2015 or 2016?

    - Noticing any new trends?
