We all learn differently. For some of us it is watching a video, for others it is listening to a podcast or reading a book.
For me a conference provides it all. I get to meet new people, learn new information and hopefully
get nudged into pursuing some new concepts. And sometimes while I hear something that I already knew, it serves as a reminder. Rarely is it a waste of time.
For most of my career I have been organizing events – and our conference this year on May 17, while it marks the 10th Journey 2 Success, is just one of many that I have hosted in the past. You see whether it is a group of 30 or 300, the detail remains the same.
The key I think is to mix it up. No one wants to sit there for six hours suffering from death by power point. Just as I said at the beginning, we all learn differently so as a conference organizer, you have to keep that fact in mind.
So yes, at Journey 2 Success there are a couple of keynote speakers, a panel (just one), and small group discussions and biz tool information sessions. And of course, to lighten it up some retail therapy, after all a gal needs her bling.
But because this is our 10th annual conference, with a theme of Celebrating Your Successes – with gratitude and giving back, we have invited 21 award-winning women entrepreneurs to share their success secrets with us. Now these are super-busy women who have generously agreed to spend time with us … with you. It is their way of giving back and an opportunity not to miss.
And for those who like going to the movies – we have the premiere of the One Red Lipstick documentary, complete with popcorn, followed by the After Glow party. How cool is that.
Often we leave conferences and events with such great intentions, then when we get back to the office, reality sets in and the new ideas get left on the back burner. So on May 18 we have a retreat to help participants move forward and capitalize on the learning of the day before.
So check out our website, (http://journey2success.ca) mark the date on your calendar and join us. You will be glad you did.
