In this episode of Think of podcast talkI'm talking to Bernardo Moya, the founder of the Best Adventures and Editor of The Best You Magazine.
Bernardo managed to overcome the economic hardships of the 2008-2009 recession by looking for opportunities where others saw obstacles. Today Bernardo runs the largest trade fair for development in Europe. In our interview, he discusses the future of conferences and how to make the most of them. Topics include:
How will the conferences look like in 2029?
While it is believed that direct events will be part of the future of conferences, Moya says the challenge will be to customize the event experience to each individual's individual requirements. "From now on, I think virtual games will play a big role," says Moya. "I see tremendous opportunities to connect with people online, even as part of a live conference."
- You will have the opportunity to download a video, e-book, online presentation, etc. from the company or speaker who will attend the meeting directly.
- You'll be able to check what's going on in the different hacking rooms and watch them live.
- You'll be able to chat with others in the conference via an app even if you're not in the same place.
Prepare for conferences so you get the most benefit.
"It is clear that the conference will develop a program, a timetable, and so on," Moya said. "While a general plan works, if you can come with an open mind, without a prior idea of what should or should not be an event, you will get more of it."
Ultimately the key to success in the conference is to be open to those AHA! Moments to see what can actually happen.
How you can do better in applying what you learned at the conference.
One thing that happens is that people go to conferences, get inspired, learn a lot, and then do not do what they have learned. Moya is curious about how people do a better job of doing what they learn when they return home. To start, Moya says there are three types of people attending conferences:
- Those who attend a conference are curious but do not take any action based on what they have learned.
- Those who have big dreams and attend but do not necessarily do what they learn; instead, continue procrastinating and putting things on the back burner.
- Those who come and go and do it.
Moya believes that the biggest difference between those who go to take action after a conference and who do not believe in their deaths.
"What happens is that although we all know that we are human, we tend to believe that our deaths will come when they are right for us or when we achieve X or Y," says Moya. "The challenge is to stop procrastination, to understand that you are mortal, to welcome change, and to go for it."
