Andreea Wade is the founder and CEO of opening.io. She is an event organizer and public speaker—an unusual combination—with many different passions. She has started several different businesses in a variety of sectors.
Andrea relates how she had a panic attack during her first public speaking experience. She tells us that she still experiences stage fright but it reminds her that she cares. She also discusses the variety of events she curates, and how being a public speaker and an event organizer can clash at times. She also gives advice on what conference speakers can do to help events run more smoothly and to make things easier overall for event organizers.
Andreea and Richard also delve into conference logistics, and how logistics can make or break a potentially great event. Andreea offers the advice that public speaking is a key skill for anyone who wants to be an entrepreneur, especially if you are taking an old idea and putting a new spin on it. When your message is important, she says, you will be asked to share it, so you must be able to present it in an engaging and relatable way.
