Amp up your user engagement
Search Engine Land
We talk a lot about creating good, useful content. We talk about socializing it. What we don't talk about as much is user engagement with that content. People like to link to content that shows signs of life. If you have an active community, people are more likely to return often — and that increases the chances that when they need to link to something, it might be to you.

Mobile devices: Friend or foe at your events?
MeetingsNet
Picture this: At one of your key marketing events, the speaker is building an airtight case for why attendees need to invest in certain innovations that your company just happens to offer. Dazzling slides roll by in the well-crafted presentation. You scan the audience, expecting to see rows and rows of people eagerly awaiting the next brilliant point.

The 7 stages of business travel stress
Harvard Business Review
How stressful is business travel? Very. Especially if you're a female vice president. Michael Segalla and Dominique Rouziès of HEC Paris teamed up with Catalin Ciobanu and Vincent Lebunetel of Carlson Wagonlit Travel to survey thousands of business travelers about the stress they felt at every stage of a trip. When mapped on the timeline of a standard business trip, the data offered a view into who's stressed out by what. VPs hate expense reports. Senior executives have a surprisingly high fear of flying. And, yes, women are far more stressed by business travel than men.

Snack bite-size learning rules the roost at conferences
Midcourse Corrections
Here's one key point all conference organizers and speakers should know and implement: Chunk content in 10 minute sections. Bite-size learning as well as bite-size instruction improves an attendee’s psychological engagement. It prevents cognitive overload and mental burnout. It also encourages us to process information and consider its application. Our natural rhythm of energy and motivation ebbs and flows throughout the day. Chunking content in smaller segments follows that natural rhythm.
