What Business Are You REALLY In?

Seems like a simple question, doesn't it? And the answer seems obvious: I'm in the event business, the meetings business, the association business. Maybe you're in a business that supports association meeting professionals.

Well, there actually is a new way to think about your business. There is a new lens through which you can view your profession and your organization. And this new lens might just change everything. Once you change how you think, you'll begin to see things in a new light that will open a world of possibilities for your work, your career and your organization.

You can expect:

  1. A new perspective on the role of associations and why the future is so bright.
  2. To learn how meetings and events are the original social media and why that matters to your career.
  3. A new positioning for your role that can change how others in your organization view your impact on your association’s success.

Don't miss this inspiring session that might just change how you see yourself, your job and your organization.
