- lets adopt Daniels program.

- we will strongly encourage speakers to use timers (most people have one
in their pocket, I use one)

- let's try to meet all the session chairs on workshop day (if they’re not
giving workshops), but again, that doesn't mitigate the case of ‘last
second’ or 'fill in' chairing (me, with the massive technical glitch to
boot; also me and a lot of other people at other F4G events I’ve been to).

Alex did a great job of preparing materials for session chairs last year -
this shows that even the best laid plans go awry when the rubber hits the
floor. It’s no reflection on the chairs or speakers, everyone does the best
they can. Yes people are paying to come, and yes we can have a slick
professional event if they pay a lot more (noting that even slick
professional events have hiccups)

Overall we need to remember, and perhaps impress upon the audience, that
it’s a conference bootstrapped by volunteers.
