I've been moderating and participating in conference panels since my days in pro-sports management back in the 70s. Since the early days, I learned and never forgot the key reason to be up on stage that my mentors drilled into my head at a tender age (I was a just a teenager when I first got in front of a crowd of 1000 people to give my first solo speech).
The advice of a few centered around this:
Talk to the audience about what they would want to hear, not what you would want to say.
The second thing I learned from the same mentors was
Be on topic be sure you can talk about it if you're on a panel or being interviewed, otherwise either learn it quick or get someone more qualified on the topic.
Winds of change are in the air, and it's time to hear what's next, not worry so much about the past.
