Episode 19: bye hybrid virtual events
In a departure from the norm, this episode of Marketing Hyperdrive features a snippet from an interview I did with the folks at Social Chatter, all about virtual events. We discuss:
1. My approach to Virtual Events and the platforms I love today.
2. How I foster brand partnerships.
3. How I leverage influencers as virtual event speakers.
And interestingly, the topic of hybrid events came up... events that combine both an in-person element and a virtual option. And I have to say, I don't think there's a future for hybrid events. Listen to the interview to learn more.
