Your PASS Summit Speaker Idol Judges

Published On: 2016-09-26By:

Last week I announced the PASS Summit 2016 Speaker Idol contestants.  This week it’s time to announce the judges.  We’ve seen most of the judges at speaker idol before, so we know how great a job they’ll do.  Last year we had 5 jPASS 2015_SpeakerIdol_Banners_338x116_1udges each day and six at the finals and things were a little to cramped at the judges table.  So this year we’ve reduced the number of judges by one.  For each of the opening rounds we’ll have four judges, then at the finals we’ll have five judges.

Our judges this year for Speaker Idol will be:

Joey D’Antoni
Allan Hirt
Karen Lopez
Mark Simms
Kendra Little
Andre Kamman

Now you might be noticing that there are six names when I said that there would only be 4 judges plus one for the finals.  Because of how tight the schedule at the PASS Summit is we can’t have the same judges judging all the sessions, so we decided to break things up a little, which gives us a chance to work with an amazing new judge for this year, Kendra Little.

The way the judging lineup will land will as follows.

  Wednesday Thursday Friday Finals
Joey X X X X
Allan X X X
Karen X X X X
Mark X X X X
Kendra X
Andre X

I think that we’ve got a really great lineup of judges for this years Speaker Idol. Each one of our judges is a very well known speaker and they’ll all be able to give really great feedback to our contestants.

I’d really like to thanks our judges for offering to give up some a large chunk of time at the summit to do this (there’s only so many sessions at the summit, and this is a big chunk of time).

I’m really looking forward to this years speaker idol, I know everyone is going to go great.

And I’ll see everyone Wednesday at the first speaker idol session.
