There are many opportunities and challenges in the event business.
Time is always short, our attention split and we are juggling priorities, so we need to simplify our decisions, and focus our teams.
Essentially, ultimately, we all have just 3 things to get right.
1. THE MONEY – Financial success
2. THE AUDIENCE – Inspired Customers & Clients
3. THE TEAM – Engaged & Performing
To be successful you need to get these 3 things right.
If you get these 3 things right, you will be successful.
Why is having ‘3 things’ important?
It’s not easy to be successful in events. The more we can simplify and focus our energies, the better we may be.
Being in the events world can be a stressful place. In a fast-moving world managing our teams is challenging. In our competitive world it is paramount we keep our audience, our clients and event partners satisfied, and our customers (our participants and attendees) engaged. Events are growing, and there are great financial gains, but we need the right models in place to be profitable and sustainable.
Why is this useful?
This is a simple way to take a stocktake of the ‘3 things’ you need front of mind on your roadmap toward success. A compass to guide your attention, and the decisions we make.
This may be a daily check of there your time and energy should be spent. It may be a deeper dive to diagnose where your event is at, and where your organisation needs to spend it’s time. On engaging the Audience, the Team, or the Financial success.
