Daily Buzz: Give Meeting Attendees What They Want

Use event crowd-sourcing to create your meeting agenda

“Event crowd-sourcing allows participants to create the sessions that they actually want and need,” said Adrian Segar of Conferences That Work.

Segar, a meetings designer and facilitator, argues that this strategy avoids the two biggest pitfalls of traditional meetings: not including the sessions that attendees are interested in, and overwhelming attendees with too many choices crammed into an exhausting schedule.
