About Our Sessions
Unlike some conferences, speaking slots on sessions at Search Engine
Strategies are not sold or given in return for sponsorship of the event.
Instead, conference chair Danny Sullivan carefully plans sessions designed
to cover all aspects of search engine marketing. He then personally invites
speakers to take part in various sessions, based on the knowledge and
experience they can bring to conference attendees.
A hallmark of the show is that panels generally feature multiple speakers,
in order to provide diverse viewpoints. Each speaker receives a detailed
"prep note" from Danny meant to help ensure that presentations don't overlap
but instead complement each other. Speakers are also specifically asked to
refrain from making sales pitches.
Sessions also often feature a "case study" speaker, in order to bring
real-life experiences into panels. In addition, all sessions generally allow
for at least 15 minutes of Q&A, if not longer. Some sessions are even
"PowerPoint Free" zones, pure Q&A and audience driven.
All the hard work behind the scenes gets reflected in the high scores that
Search Engine Strategies sessions typically earn. Attendees are asked to
score sessions on a scale of 1 to 5, with anything 4 and above considered
In short, Search Engine Strategies offers high-quality sessions designed to all interests in search engine marketing.
