When I left the Audience Conference on Saturday evening, I felt I had learned something. Truly learned something new. I cannot say the same is true for every conference I attend unfortunately. Often times when I leave a conference, I either haven’t learned anything (but I still typically meet some interesting and great people) or I have just had ideas or things I’ve known reinforced. To me, that isn’t beneficial. I’m going to outline some key ideas and advice that I was able to take away from the conference with the hope it can help you build and maintain an audience as well.
Be passionate. This is something I have always said as well. If you are passionate about what you do, people will take note. Of course, being passionate and having knowledge on the particular subject can go a very long way. It’s also worth mentioning that if you are passionate about what you are doing, you will continue to do it even if no one is reading, listening to, or watching you; because it’s something you enjoy. That’s important.
