[Note: this article and the list of assumptions is created before the COVID-period but quite sure you can still find some inspiration]
As a professional speaker, I have the opportunity to attend a lot of different events & conferences – different in scale, audience, locations, cultures, … but some elements come back at almost every event.
A next step in the process is to break one of those assumptions and check if an event exists where they did something different. That means that it can be done in a different way and broadens your toolbox. Here are a few examples:
#1 One speaker at a time
#4 Meeting planner takes the risk of organising an event
#17 Networking happens during the drink
#20 My job is done at the end of the event
# 21 Only hire speakers who are experts in the domain
