Thirty minutes into a 90-minute presentation, I heard a familiar sound that jogged past memories. “Is that a baby waking up from its slumber,” I thought? “No. I must be hearing things.”
No doubt the presenter thought she would impress us with the sounds of her infant son nursing as she tried to not skip a beat. I mean, here’s someone who can multi task while giving valuable information before deftly move onto the sales pitch for website packages starting at $5,500. Her son and I both let out a synchronized howl on that one…but it gets better.
Attendees who actually stuck it out until the bitter end wanted to see the cuddly disrupter. Instead, she denied our request because we would see her “tiny crappy apartment.” My colleague to whom I gave a link to this event had check out early and missed the all important closing.
Guess I have a lot in common with her son. After 90 minutes we were both screaming for it to end.
