Meeting Planners: How To Create The Perfect Meeting

I wanted to thank everyone for your input, expertise and thoughtful response to our question, “How to create a perfect meeting?” Below is a summary of your responses to questions 1 and 2:

These events provide a fantastic opportunity to expand your customer experience beyond typical interactions like sales, training, and consulting. Further, having your customers interact with each other is priceless. Strategically coordinating simple conversations between your participants can accelerate their growth and development, create AHA moments that will help them in their day to day routines and challenge them to seek news ways to run the business. Customer-to-customer conversations can ignite new up-sell and expansion opportunities.

1. What are the goals of the event?
Remember your SMART (specific, measurable, attainable, relevant, time-bound) objectives, and use this approach as you take extensive notes and action plans for each workshop and breakout. Once you have the foundations of your event sorted out, you can start handpicking all the workshops to round out your event and make it sparkle

2. What type of event is this?
The first question to ask is about the nature of the event, as all subsequent event planning questions will be determined by this answer. Is this a meeting? A corporate event? A promotional event? The nature of the event will determine the activity and often the location.

I am very interested and am sure you have your own thoughts that you would like to share. Over the next few editions, we will build out a question or two using your thoughts. Please send me your thoughts on questions 3 and 4 for our next edition: 3. What is the best time for this event? and 4. What is the theme of this event?. Please email me with your ideas at [email protected]. We will also have a new video podcast available on this subject shortly (details below).

Special Gift For Responders

As a thank you, the email addresses of those who respond to this survey will be entered in a drawing to receive a free signed paperback copy of Tighten the Lug Nuts – The Principles of Balanced Leadership. Three names will be drawn and I will contact the winners via email.

New Podcast: Richmond Events

I recently spoke with Adrienne Garland, Conference manager, Logistics and Supply Chain Forum at Richmond Events. I will be the Keynote Speaker at their upcoming conference so we naturally discussed the concept of Balanced Leadership and the need for everyone in the organization to keep the customer “top of mind”.

How To Create The Perfect Meeting

I was recently interviewed by Don McCauley regarding how to create the perfect meeting. In this interview we covered all the important questions, including most of the topics listed above. Many of these principles will apply to any type of meeting or event. The full interview will be available shortly and we’ll have it up before the next newsletter.

Your Next Conference, Your Next Motivational Speaker, Your Next Topic

To achieve success, you will need to embrace the Balanced Leadership philosophy along with the goals and objectives through walking the talk and your daily actions. Your success will be measured by the degree to which everyone in your organization at every level begins to understand, embrace, emulate, and execute the vision and strategy.

Coach’s Corner – Exclusive never-seen before interview with UCLA Coach John Wooden

In every newsletter I include a quote from UCLA Coach John Wooden, whom I had the great pleasure to interview while I was a leader at UPS. Coach often said, “When everyone is thinking the same, no one is thinking.” Click below to view the full interview.

If you play a coaching role (and we all do), please look at the unique and exclusive interview with legendary Coach John Wooden on our website. Coach Wooden was a supporter of the Jimmy V Foundation and in memory of Coach Valvano, who passed away, April 28, 1993, we are remembering Coach Valvano and his fight by donating one dollar to the Jimmy V Fund to find the cure for each copy of Tighten The Lug Nuts sold.

Coach Valvano is remembered for being many things: a player, a coach, a broadcaster, a brother, husband and a father. But above all he was an inspiration. And when he was diagnosed with cancer at 46, he never gave up. Thank you in advance for your generous support and enjoy the book.

Tighten the Lug Nuts: The Principles of Balanced Leadership

Leadership is something we all have concerns about. Leadership is not a concept that only applies to certain people in business, government, and civic organizations. The reality is that no matter our age, gender, occupation, educational level, or position in life, each of us touches and influences other lives. In this book, rated 5 stars on Amazon, I present a powerful overview of the concepts of Balanced Leadership and how each of us as leaders in our own way can make a difference and Leave Our Legacy.
