Two Minute Drill: The Three Pillars of a Successful Event
What’s up Kaizenovators, happy Tuesday Two Minute Drill. Today’s topic of conversation is “success”. This past weekend we had our live event and it was in one word “Awesome”, surprisingly, because success doesn’t come easy for me but it was just an incredible event.
The Power of Planning, Tenacity, and Creativity
We got amazing feedback from the very beginning about the event, the content that we had created, the experience that we had created, and ultimately how we were changing lives through this event. It was just amazing. I started to think about what were the factors that drove this result and there are three critical elements.
The first is planning. We did such a good job planning, in fact, one thing that we’re going to do next year is plan for every contingency that we can think of. We didn’t do that this year, but we’ll do it next year. My team did a great job in planning the event and we had lots of outside help, David Muntner, Joey Coleman, the other success partners, and speakers, we all worked together to plan.
The second thing that allowed this event to be successful was that we were incredibly tenacious. We had very low attendance until just a few weeks before the event. However, just continuing to work on the process and just not giving up, we ended up having a really great room of people.
The last piece is creativity. You know, when the success partners and the speakers and my team were on these meetings getting ready, there were some incredibly creative ideas that came out of those meetings, and that’s what drove greater attendance and we had a full room.
I’m very blessed, and very grateful for the speakers, the success partners, and the attendees, they were amazing and engaged. We all had fun, we learned a lot, and we had lots of laughs and love along the way.
So, plan, be tenacious, be creative, and good things will happen.
That’s this week’s Two Minute Drill. I’ll see you guys all next week.
