Meeting Planners: How To Create The Perfect Meeting

First, thank you for your thoughtful responses to our main topic story on The Definition of a Successful Leader.

As a motivational speaker, I have enjoyed the privilege of speaking in venues all over the world. I have participated in every kind of event, meeting and breakout session. Meeting planners face some unique challenges, regardless of the type of event being planned. I have great respect for their ability to plan and execute a world class event. As part of the planning process for a meeting or event, below are some of the questions meeting planners have shared as critical ones to start the process.

What are the goals of the event?
What type of event is this?
What is the best time for this event?
What is the theme of this event?
What is unique about this event?
What services will we need?

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: Shock Your Potential

Job Succession Planning

In this podcast we discussed the hiring manager’s perspective and what is important to the hiring manager. We often see more in people than they see in themselves. As effective leaders, it is our ability to believe in them before they are ready to believe in themselves that helps bridge the “readiness gap.”

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, “Never make excuses. Your friends don’t need them, and your foes won’t believe them” 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.
