What an honor! Through a popular vote, this website for funny conference speaker — DaveLieber.org — has been named “Best Speaker Website 2015” by North America's preeminent speakers' coach, Jane Atkinson. (SpeakerLauncher.com)
Dave is a funny conference speaker, a storytelling expert and much-in-demand keynote speaker. He's also a newspaper columnist who won the top prize this year in a national columnists contest.
What makes a good website?
Atkinson chose seven nominees and then opened it up for a vote. Atkinson said websites ought to show:
- A clear promise (that is about them and not you).
- A vibe that allows people to feel your essence and see who you are.
- Strong video of you in action.
- Clean, easy to use menu of options. Not too busy. Less is more.
Dave thanks his web designer Jon Perry for extraordinary work.
This is the second time DaveLieber.org has been honored in 2015. Speaker Laurie Guest ran a similar contest for National Speakers Association/North Texas chapter members. Guest awarded this site the legendary Jalapeno Socks Award.
Dave, who is a Certified Speaking Professional, especially thanks all the voters, almost all of whom stepped forward through a brief but fun social media campaign to make this happen. One friend of Dave wrote, “Dave helps us all the time. Let's help him!” Love it! Thank so much everyone!
