As editors of a meetings-focused magazine, Connect's staffÂ like to consider ourselves experts on the cutting-edge technologies you should be incorporating into meetings. We break down the latest updates affecting your social media accounts, recommend new gadgets for making #plannerlife a little easier, and check in with AV experts who address the most common tech problems, including whether to first tackle an issue yourself or call in a pro.
We can do the legwork for you, but the burden of proof lies in your hands to determine what technologies can help you, your event, and your association or organization reach your goals.
Easier said than done? Sometimes the best way to attack a high-tech problem is by going low-tech. You may have heard of the bullet journaling concept thatâ€™s swept through the blogosphere as of late. To start, all you need is a fresh notebook and a pen. Google it to see hundreds of videos on how it works (OK, so thereâ€™s a little tech involved there), but the gist is to use a simple system of color coding, artistic inspo and symbols to break down your days into specific tasks.
Whether you try the bullet journal planning method or not, I challenge you to dedicate a specific day and time each week to delve into the research to determine what technologies can help you accomplish your meetingâ€™s objectives, and ultimately help you do your job better. Ah, now youâ€™re seeing the light!
