Prior to attending our last event recently, we were presented with information on how to best benefit from the event, and I boiled the information down to these 7 tips to get the most out of your next live event.
I personally followed these tips to the best of my ability at the time, and I must say that I benefited tremendously from the event.
- Be prepared to step out of your comfort zone.
If you go to the event with the idea of being your usual self – whatever that usual self may be – drop that idea.
Instead, make the commitment to yourself that you will be or do at least one thing different – maybe ask for more pictures with one of the leaders, maybe exchange contact information with one of your colleagues, maybe introduce yourself and talk with someone you’ve never met before.
- Take lots of notes.
Come prepared with a notebook and pen, or with your laptop, and take notes throughout.
Review those notes on the way home and once you get home.
Then turn those notes into Income Producing Activities. Teach from them – you have loads of content for your blog, your videos, Facebook posts. Etc.
- Get pictures and videos.
Have someone take a picture of you on stage if possible, before the day starts or after it ends.
Take pictures with leaders and high-profile people which you can use in your marketing.
Briefly interview some high-profile leaders by asking them a pertinent question. Edify them in the video.
“How were able to get visible in the business when you were starting out?” “What do you attribute your initial breakthrough to?”
- Come to the event with an open mind and clean slate.
Regardless of any past experiences or disappointments, attend the event with a positive attitude and a genuine desire to learn and network.
Leave what you think you already know at the door.
- Set out your vision for yourself ahead of time and write it down.
Step into that vision and see yourself already there – as though it already happened.
Make the decision before you arrive that this is the weekend that will change everything for you.
- Don’t waste a minute in the company of negativity.
Walk away from negative-speaking people and situations and seek out the people with a positive attitude who are there to gain benefit.
- Be present.
Arrive on time. Actively listen to all the speakers. Play FULL OUT!
