This is the first post on this blog and it is a cross post from my other blog Tsunami Wisdom. I will confine The Binder posts to information that is essential and specific to meeting professionals on topics about marketing and technology. I encourage to post your comments so that I may continually refine The Binder to your benefit. You can also subscribe via email or RSS. Thanks!
I am honored to be selected as a speaker at the upcoming Virginia Chapter of Meeting Professionals annual conference taking place in Hampton, Virginia in August. Whenever I am speaking at events, I endeavor to deliver information that is actionable for greater success.
It is a very exciting time for meeting professionals for a variety of reasons.
- After a disastrous 2009, corporate meetings and events are coming back and are once again seen as vital to business success.
- With the explosion in mobile platforms, more and more technologies are becoming available to assist meeting professionals on a variety of levels.
- The increasing use of Strategic Meeting Management (SMM)
- What to adopt?
- How much to invest?
- Time management
- Limited resources
Over the next few weeks, I’ll be posting about these issues and offering advice from myself and other industry experts such as Susan Radojevic, Corbin Ball, Adrian Segar and others. For this post, I want you to view a video produced by The Peregrine Agency, a specialist and important force behind Strategic Meeting Management. It stresses that meetings are serious business and must be managed as such in order for the organization to maintain top performance and productivity.
