    ... Got all that?

    • 114. No hard selling (invest, invest, invest – wait long time – results);
    • 115. Rumours and speculation (hey, it’s the internet!);
    • 116. The internet never forgets (if something bad happens it stays online);
  • WHAT YOU REALLY SHOULD KEEP IN MIND
    (if you’re asleep now you should wake up just for this part)
  • 117. How you promote your meeting or event has evolved.
    Content is now created, shared and distributed through many different channels. Don’t say goodbye to paper though!
    Feedback from participants is instant. And social. And mobile. And public.
  • 118. Interactivity is happening right now at your meeting or event. Shouldn’t you be joining the conversation?
    The conversation extends well beyond your physical meeting or event.
    It’s not a question if we do social media but how well we do it.
