When I was planning Nashville Voice Conference 2019, the hardest part was filling the seats.
I connected with a FinTech marketer on Twitter who builds Alexa Skills. He happened to be on a summer RV trip with his son. He messaged me about the conference and asked if he could bring his 11-year old son with him - mentioning that his son builds Alexa Skills for class projects.
I almost fell out of my chair I was so happy.
I am very proud of the Nashville Voice Conference and the diversity of people we had in attendance. In this video at Project Voice 2020, I tell the story and talk about how Small Business Owners are scared of Alexa Skills but why they need to embrace them.
