Hootsuite's CEO Ryan Holmes probed his 2-million professional network to find out how to make virtual conferences better. "Let’s be honest. At the best of times, business conferences can be a little ... dull. But now that conferences have gone virtual, the risk of boring people to tears is very real." Ryan quoted Yann Gourvennec's quote in his Forbes article dated June 11, 2020.
Content is (still) king: “Is it events that are boring or those who facilitate them? I've seen people captivate audiences with a piece of written text … I've also seen a lot of technological gizmos that are utterly tedious. Most conferences fail because the gist of the content that underpins them is weak, uninteresting and uninspiring.” — Yann Gourvennec, CEO at Visionary Marketing
Preach, Yann! Super obvious, but this idea was the single most-mentioned tip and worth emphasizing. Don’t rely on whiz-bang tech to cover up for boring speakers, presentations, etc. Make sure you know your audience and what they’re expecting to learn. Then give them what they came for … and more.
