Collaboration Begins When Conversations Turn Into Action
The full version of my new site will be live February 2017.
In the meantime a brief look at what’s coming is below.
Mark Creates Programs To Accelerate Meaningful Collaboration That Attracts Talent, Partners And Clients By:
CREATING Events With Focus and Purpose
COMMUNICATING Through Meaningful Storytelling
COLLABORATING And Building Teams of Peers & Advisors
Professional Events Need To Be More Than Just “A Bunch Of People In A Room”
Mark Builds Interactive Experiences With Focus And Purpose
PROFESSIONAL EVENTS NEED TO BE ABOUT MORE THAN JUST NUMBERS
150 random people in a bar or a lunch with a generic speech about “leadership” isn’t enough anymore. Successful professional events need to have a specific purpose and provide meaningful interactions. That’s a ONE80 degree turn from most events.
ONE80 EVENTS CREATE:
Conversations and valuable relationship building with the niche target markets sponsors need to reach
Engagement at the events and meaningful connections for participants
Ongoing conversations and opportunities to collaborate for everyone involved
ONE80 events get in you front of clients, potential clients and influencers. If you’re a professional organization these events help you provide more value for your current members and recruit new members.
Every event uses storytelling to create conversations in the room and help build relationships for everyone BEFORE, DURING and AFTER the event.
WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT AT ONE80 EVENTS?
PROBLEM SOLVING FOR NICHE AUDIENCES
Forget generic presentations. ONE80 events are about solving specific problems for the people you want to meet.
CONVERSATIONS INSTEAD OF PRESENTATIONS
No slide decks or speeches. The format is a fireside chat with an expert and engaging conversations with the audience throughout the event.
CONNECTIONS & COLLABORATION
It’s not about “collecting cards”. Everyone leaves with opportunities to collaborate instead of just another pile of business cards.
Everyone gets an experience that is COMPLETELY INTERACTIVE and energizing.
Advice Alone Isn’t Enough
Mark Builds Programs With Teams That Turn Conversations Into Solutions
YOU NEED TO PROVIDE MORE THAN ADVICE TO GET RESULTS
Professional organizations, incubators, coworking spaces, companies and colleges need to help people in their communities solve problems and create business opportunities. Most of the programs they offer to support this involve matching people with one person to talk to or creating group brainstorming sessions. Both of those lead to a lot of advice and ideas. The advice and ideas have to translate into results or people just get frustrated.
People need the right team around them to put great ideas into action. When you help your community grow they become fiercely loyal and grateful. Peer Leadership & Collaboration Programs were created to build that kind of community for you.
ONE80 programs build teams of peers and advisors that put ideas into action to create new opportunities for everyone involved. The programs give everyone involved structure, clear expectations and access to the RIGHT talent, partners and clients.
WHAT DO ONE80 PROGRAMS PROGRAMS LOOK LIKE?
There are two programs to choose from:
COMMUNITY PROJECT based programs are designed for participants that want to be involved with community outreach. There is a clear beginning and end to the project and all activities are directly related to project outcomes. The advisors are chosen based on their expertise and experience directly related to the project at hand.
PEER GROUP based programs are designed for participants who want to create peer groups with more autonomy and decide the topics for all of their conversations. The groups can exist for a specific period of time or be ongoing. The advisors are chosen based on the needs of the peer participants.
BOTH PROGRAMS include introductory training sessions, online classrooms and conversations through proprietary software, project managers, ongoing support, live events and content creation to share results and ideas.
