Let’s face it, a lot of legal conferences are pretty bad. You get a lot of presenters reading their slides and panels where one person hogs the microphone. As Matt Homann explains, the needs of conference-goers have changed, which is an opportunity to do better CLE.

Matt Homann is one of the most engaging conference presenters I have ever seen, but he’s also put a ton of thought into improving that experience. In fact, he recently launched Filament, a conference center he hopes will change the way meetings and conferences are conducted forever.

On today’s podcast, Matt talks about what people want out of conferences today, and how that has changed in recent years. And he identifies what’s wrong with meetings and conferences now—and how to fix them.
