I am tired of expert speakers. Content, shmontent. Everyone is expert in something. I want a wise speaker. For instance, presentations are not about your data. They’re about what you think about your data. The Caduceus, the symbol of medicine, makes this distinction between knowledge and wisdom.
One day, the God Hermes was striding across the mountain tops when he came upon two snakes fighting. To restore peace he drove his sword down between them, and they curled around it, forever in contention but held together by the reconciling blade.
It seems to me we’ve been putting our trust in knowledge and expertise. Enough already with the experts. How about a little wisdom?Share
