I don’t know about you, but I hold lots of meetings: I do as many as I can over the phone, but far too often I must travel somewhere to meet people to walk them through my Buying Facilitation™ model and give them the opportunity to ask questions, share concerns, have doubts, or just get excited. Why this has to be in person is truly beyond me (Is it cuz Dale Carnegie told us we had to… in 1937??).
Now, we no longer have to go to a meeting to get the results we want. There is this nifty new company – MaestroConference – that has all of the gadgets and capability to make in-person meetings a thing of the past. Truly. It’s really cool. And in some ways it’s even better than in-person, because it’s possible to bring everyone, wherever they live, to the meeting with full participation.
For starters, here is the URL: http://maestroconference.com/
Here is what you can do on this site: run meetings or workshops, get questions and respond to them, put people into groups/teams and give them exercises to do, have everyone become an active participant, allow people to share thoughts. It even manages any sign-up/financial issues for you.
And, you can go around the ‘room’ during the break-out sessions and listen in to the conversations to make sure everyone is on track. Are you impressed yet?? I am. I have visions of saving myself sooo much travel time!
Here is what they say about themselves:
“MaestroConference is an interactive communications platform, built from the ground-up, to inspire interactivity and deep engagement; making it easier to build your brand and your business.”
One of the ways that MaestroConference is marketing themselves is to have speakers such as myself do a live conference. I am going to be presenting material and running a workshop October 14 at 2:00 CT
They are having a special deal ($29.99/month) until Friday afternoon. Check it out:
I believe they will make you more efficient and save you money on travel. And I would be promoting them even though I wasn’t a speaker. Enjoy.
