Speaking of Speakers: TMG Provides Tips to Use When Selecting Your Next Event Speakers

Posted by TMG Meetings and Events on Jun 14, 2018 5:10:29 PM

Whether you have been in the association management industry for a long period of time or are new to the field, you most likely have been to an event. Concerts, parades, parties-they are all events and all require planning, especially since they attract different audiences. Aside from having audiences, they also all have a focal point, a person or thing that the event features. For conferences and meetings, the focal point is often the keynote speaker or speakers. Select the right speakers and you can have amazingly positive feedback; select the wrong keynote speaker and you can receive the complete opposite. TMG has steps you can take to help find the right speakers for your next event, large or small.

Running Productive Team Meetings

Posted by Joseph Sapp on Mar 28, 2018 9:41:50 AM

We’ve all been there-stuck on another conference call or in a meeting that seems to have lost focus. How much time do we spend in meetings or on calls that are not accomplishing what they are set up to do? Studies show a typical employee spends 31 hours a month in unproductive meetings. That is a lot of wasted time, too much. Whether you are leading a team meeting or are a participant, we can all contribute to improving how we spend time in meetings and make them as productive as possible.
