White House Marketing, Inc., Shares Four Tips to Make That Conference Count

Removing yourself from behind the virtual wall of your digital network is often intimidating. However, White House Marketing, Inc., sees conferences as networking and learning tools you cannot replicate easily. Make conferences work for you with these four tips.

 

1. Define Objectives

 

Know what you want from the conference. This will be a big outlay of time and money and if you cannot define your objective, it may be worth skipping. Know your goals ahead of time whether it is to get a specific message across or network with a particular group of people.

 

2. Bring the Right People

 

Bring people with a vested interest in doing well at the conference. If you have team members who are simply not enthusiastic, let them stay home to run the office. People who are interested in attending and ready to make new connections are the best to accompany you and help spread your company’s message.

 

3. Design a System to Track Your Connections

 

Use a spreadsheet or other tool to track who you talk to and how to reach them. Add a few details so you can remember them better. You will like meet hundreds of people and you want a system to keep them all straight.

 

4. Follow Up After the Event

 

Send thank you notes to participants. Ask to connect through social media, whether that is LinkedIn or Facebook; keep the momentum of the connection going and help it evolve to something more significant for your career.

 

With a good plan, a conference can be very productive if you can avoid social pitfalls. Attend that conference with specific goals and be prepared to meet new people. That winning formula will make the time and money a good investment.

White House Marketing, Inc., Reflects on Workplace Innovation

Every business claims to want innovation but White House Marketing, Inc., frequently finds that sometimes it is unintentionally discouraged. To keep a flow of new and creative ideas, your office needs to provide the right environment and managers need to be prepared to embrace change.

Innovation requires change and risk-taking. Both these aspects can be terrifying for those in leadership who likely succeeded under a different set of rules. Rather than perceive change as a threat, accept that all things change—trends, market forces, consumer preferences, and even the nature of the available workforce. Fighting these changes will not help your business evolve. Accepting them as reality and finding the best way to make innovation work for your office will support growth.

 

Additionally, you should develop a structure within your workplace that allows team members to share new ideas. Put aside time for special meetings where everyone discusses what does and does not work and their perceptions on how to improve. Pay attention to emails from workers that suggest other outcomes. Remember to respond to them and do not just put them aside as a low priority. Team members who do not feel like you listen to them are unlikely to share their ideas and may take them to another firm.

 

What’s more, leadership is also necessary for innovation to thrive. Maintain a combination of creative people, processes, and focus. Listen to feedback and do not become defensive. Criticizing a process that seems inefficient is not the same as feedback on your leadership skills or personality.

 

Finally, an innovative workplace is one of open communication. It allows dialog between leaders and their teams. It respects the experience of others. The best way to promote new ideas is to build an environment where they are welcome.
