Creating Conferences That Work with Adrian Segar

For an excellent summary of the work I do, check out this interview and podcast, Creating Conferences That Work by Celisa Steele of Leading Learning. The podcast recording is nicely summarized in the show notes, so you can just read about what interests you, and then listen to any or all of the interview sections from the links on the page.

Here’s an overview:

  • The six major reasons that conferences need to evolve from the traditional events we’re all used to.
  • What a peer conference is.
  • The Conference Arc: why conferences need to have a process-based beginning, middle, and end.
  • What event crowdsourcing is, and why it’s so important.
  • My new book: Event Crowdsourcing: Creating Events People Actually Want and Need.
  • Designing large peer conferences.
  • Four obstacles to holding peer conferences.
  • Integrating peer conference process into a traditional conference.

Creating Conferences That Work with Adrian Segar is a great introduction to why meeting planners and designers need to incorporate participant-driven and participation-rich design into their events. Recommended!
