Content Meets F&B: A Summit for Administrative Professionals ... and Everyone Else Virtual Summit

Content May Be King – But How Well It Is Delivered Can Make Or Break Your Event

Presented by: Nikole Fridenmaker

Most business events have goals or outcomes around two common areas, networking, and education. If you orchestrate an amazing networking event but your education falls flat, eventually your participation will dwindle. When people commit to spending their time at your event or their money, they typically want to leave with skills, trends, new ideas that they can help implement with their own organization, for their own professional or personal development.

As the planners and organizers of these events, it’s critical that we place enough time and focus to develop a stellar education program and process. It doesn’t matter if you have the budget to pay speakers or if your speakers participate without compensation, the process and the content still need your expertise and curation.

During this session, we will walk through some best practices on how to attract outstanding speakers, how to evaluate outstanding speakers plus how to help your speakers improve and maximize their connection with the attendees. However, the work isn’t done on the last day of the event. There are ways to keep speakers engaged, your stakeholders and attendees engaged and motivate your speakers to improve and keep coming back with bigger and better topics.

Key Take-Aways:

1. Participants will be able to evaluate and create a complete, well-developed process for their speaker and education needs, as well as their goals and outcomes for the life-cycle of the event (pre-event, event, post-event).

2. By participating in this session, planners will be able to apply simple techniques that will elevate the quality of their speakers, speaker selection and education outcomes.

3. By the conclusion, participants will be able to organize and implement an intentional plan to help grow and improve their speakers.
