    The Fit Call

    The Fit Call

    Sponsoring companies get approached a lot. The fit call shows them that this event is not a commodity, but a unique brand.

    1. Sell the program as a whole, not the speaking slot.
    2. Establish expertise and editorial integrity.
    3. Screen sponsors for relevance.
    4. Maintain control of your program.
    5. Sell the conference – you know the USP better than your sponsorship guy does.

    Connecting People Onsite

    "He who has a hundred miles to walk should reckon ninety as half the journey,”

    Conference Producers tend to be obsessed with one question, "How will we get people in the room?" In fact, this is the wrong question.

    The real question a Producer needs to ask is "How will I deliver the most value to people who attend?"

    This podcast focused on how to coach your on-site team to deliver maximum value to your audience, sponsors, and speakers.
