Had my presentation this morning.
Well a little bit of some confusion right off the hop - Told me to set up in the wrong room, then when I was being called to the podium in another
room, someone announced that I was needed in that room.
I get in there, set up, handed the tech guy my USB stick and said please ensure the videos are located with the presentation.
So I start yapping, my first video comes up and it starts stuttering and going really slow mo - I apologized to the crowed, and said the videos should
have been located with the presentation. Then when I went to change slides, the remote had low batteries and wouldnt flip.
By this time, all I could do was laugh and apologize. Finally I was able to signal the tech guy to flip to the next slide when needed.
After the first initial 5 minutes of hiccups it started to flow. The room was packed with people interested in my technical paper. I got a lot of
Peoples minds were blown with what I have done with drones and the level I have taken it to.
So all in all I feel it went well. I got lots of positive feedback from people. Things like wow, I had no idea you could do that, or holy have been
able to get data from this... ect
Martin, me and your dad had an excellent afternoon together at the conference. We talked about moving forward with the drone netowork. He asked me if
I would be interested in working with him on some projects! Of course I said yes!!!
Some really, really exciting advancements and breakthroughs on the horizon. I wish he could have stayed longer, but I seen him off to the airport
about an hour ago.
I just wanted to pop in and let everyone know how the conference is going so far.
Lots of new tech and what not for mining and safety, but so far I was told my presentation has been the most interesting.
Hope everyone is doing well, im headed back up to the conference now. (Came downstairs to my hotel room to write this)
Talk to you all soon!
