500 Words is a podcast about living a creative life. Short-form interviews with creative people from film, music, design, multi-media and more. Conducted by Lee Schneider.

In this special on-location edition of the podcast, Ady Floyd, a senior research manager at Trendhunter, shares her ideas and tips about creating a keynote speech.

With 20,000,000 monthly views, TrendHunter.com is the world's largest, most popular trend community. The Toronto-based group leverages big data, human researchers, and AI to identify consumer insights and deep-dive opportunities for the world's most innovative companies.

In exchange for recording this podcast and writing about them, the Trendhunter folks allowed me to experience their Los Angeles Future Festival in person.

I interviewed Ady just after she delivered her keynote on future trends in retail. She shares her tips about how to develop a keynote, how to polish your ideas, and her best piece of advice for anyone considering giving a keynote.

For my audio geek friends reading and listening, this is a location recording, so there’s a little background noise at the start.

Thanks for listening,
