    Why do you hold these events in English? One could tell that all the speakers were very knowledgable about their subjects, but because some of them lacked the language skills their knowledge came across very poorly. I thought we all missed out. Why can't the presentations be given in the speakers' native tongues? I think we would all greatly benefit.

      I don't agree, Nicolas. Meaning and insightful pieces of knowledge simply get lost if someone isn't proficient in speaking a language (never mind heavy accents and wrong sentence structures). Most people in Switzerland are multi-lingual or at least understand (High-)German, French & English anyway, so why not have the presentations in one of these there languages and leave it to the speakers which one of the three suits them best? After all that's what makes Switzerland such a great place, I think.

      We were 5 participants from our company (Magnolia) and only 2 could follow a German presentation.

      I remember remarkably good presentations held in terrible english. While using your native language can make you sound more eloquent it won't fix your presentation structure, slides, missing anecdotes, ....

      Rule number one for good presentations is anyway - rehearse! - If you don't present in your native language, just rehearse twice ;-)

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
