Let’s face it, time is money and today senior management expects meetings, incentives and events to deliver business results. The days are gone where your daily tasks were reviewing rooming lists and BEOs. Meeting planning requires strategic management and a continual eye on ROI. Meeting planning productivity is a big part of the equation, so step back and evaluate how you are currently managing your daily activities. Determine how efficiencies, procedures, resources, and technological tools can be implemented, allowing you to “do more with less.” Track, validate and communicate your success to senior managers and stakeholders. We hope that our Destination Michigan Blog will become a useful resource for you to help manage these activities. We look forward to sharing topics with you that relate to strategic meetings and managing effective meetings.
