This sounds great:

"I am seriously considering setting up a conference call on a weekly basis. The call would last 60 minutes and the topic would be introduced by me spontaneously and completely randomly.
The common theme of every call/discussion would be directed towards heightening the abilities/expression of sport form of an athlete.
I would select guest speakers (individuals who are highly accomplished in the field- according to my definition), again at a random and unannounced basis. To give you an idea of who the speakers I would ask to particpate are:
and others from this Q and A as well as other associations...
I would host all calls and introduce the topic for discussion for all calls. My role in each call would be fundamental as I would share my related views for approximately 20 minutes. The guest speaker(s) would then join in for another 20-25 minutes in which we would volley back and forth.
At the end of each call, probably the last 15 minutes, I would provide for a live Q and A between any listeners and myself and who ever the guest speaker(s) I have chosen that week.
My wife works for a business that uses great conference call technology. I would use the same service, so I can guarantee the success from a technical end.
I am looking into a few different options for handling the monetary transaction, which would provide you with a code for the call.
Please fill out the poll so I can get an idea of how much value viewers place on my and my industry associates time and insights and so forth.
I know that this would be a great experience both for myself, my guest speakers, and the listeners.
I would make every attempt to utilize technology that would allow me to make a MP3 or some other type of digital recording that I could provide to paying callers and also to possibly sell to individuals who couldn't make the call
I really want this to happen. I, however, need to assess your interest level before I move forward.
Those of you who participate in other forums/message boards can do me a big favor in spreading the word about this idea.
If you could, just ask individuals to stop by and at least take the poll as a guest (if they do not wish to register for the Symposium).
I can't move forward until enough people take the poll. This information will guide my decision as to whether there are enough interested paying customers to justify the endeavor.
I really want this to happen as I greatly enjoy speaking about training, much more so then writing about it. Additionally, living in the remote location which I do makes it more challenging to interact with the masses.
Through the call I could interact, on a more personal and direct basis, with interested participants anywhere in the world.
Don't forget about the Q and A which would be featured at the end of every call.
this could really be a unique event, and one which would occur EVERY WEEK!
Let's make this happen!"
I think this would be a great opportunity, do James a favor and at least answer the poll.
