Is your conference churning out junk information?
Midcourse Corrections
We live in world where overconsumption is the norm. If unhealthy eating habits create poor health, doesn't it make sense that unhealthy information habits create poor knowledge and wisdom? Transition to the average annual conference and you'll see attendees who spend eight to 12 hours consuming information. We try to cram as much information as possible into our schedules. That's why our conferences need a healthier information diet.

Why writing your book doesn't have to be scary
Escape From Cubicle Nation
Whether you're an entrepreneur looking to strengthen your platform or someone with a body of research, a story, or a unique point of view you feel compelled to share, writing a book seems to be one of those "I-want-to-do-it-before-I-die" kind of things for many people.

Duct Tape Marketing
Few things are more confusing to business owners and marketers than the idea of marketing strategy. It may be due in part to simple misunderstanding by many who try to apply the concept, but it's also due to the fact that strategy is very malleable — that is to say, it can be many things. But, rather than debate the proper way to define what marketing strategy is, the following talks about how to develop it, bring it to life and give it a voice. No matter how perfectly you state your marketing strategy, if it doesn't live firmly in the tactics you employ to develop customers it's all for naught.

Fast Company
Aristotle might as well have been doling out career advice when he said that "we are what we repeatedly do." This aphorism has taken on contemporary resonance in books like Charles Duhigg's The Power of Habit. The hope is that if we sculpt our daily to-dos, we sculpt our workdays and we can sculpt our careers. But what are we to do every day?

Twitter tips for event managers
MeetingsNet
Twitter can be a useful tool to help raise awareness of and interest in your event. The fact that you can follow whoever you want gives it advantages over the likes of Facebook, and following key professionals and influencers in your chosen field can quickly gain traction for your event as they retweet or interact with you, in turn passing on information about your event to their followers, who are likely also interested. That said, there are still some best practices that will help you ensure that you're not just screaming into the echo chamber that Twitter can become.
