    Thanks for sharing more words of wisdom, Javier. You make so many excellent points, as always, which we should all take to heart. I would note the following to buttress your potent points:
    1) It's been said the best conversationalists are a good listeners. Thus, practice "active listening." Moreover, as iconic U.S. TV/radio talk show host, Larry King, and other have said, "I never learned anything while talking."
    2) But when you do talk, recall the late Dale Carnegie who wrote in his 1930s seminal book, "How to Win Friends and Influence People":
    "The only way on Earth to influence the other fellow [person] is talk about what he [she] wants and show him [her] how to get it...You can make more friends in two months by becoming interested in other people than you can in two years by trying to get other people interested in you."
    3) Although social media networking is a great start, itโ€™s also important to meet your connections in person, to the extent possible. This solidifies budding relationships and makes you stand out in a crowd. However, too many young people today appear more eager to text than talk. They would rather use Facebook over meeting face to face. But Millennials and Gen Z should not rely on social media networking alone, nor should anyone. Thatโ€™s just one tool and canโ€™t replace the human element.

    #63 I had a separate professional account on Twitter for some time but it wasn't gaining the same traction I have with my personal account. I think what plays into more traffic is the diversity of posts, including personal as well. I'm thinking that when people get to know you more on a personal level (just like beBee's mantra) they will follow more easily if they see diversity outside of business posts. I've never admitted this out loud but honestly, when I RT or post about Politics as one example, I gain a lot of followers. FB is mostly friends and I just recently included 'follow' as an option on my FB page because there are certain things I only want my friends to see. If it's business or helps another with their business I make those posts public. Since joining beBee, I've had many friend requests on Facebook and I don't like to add people I haven't interacted with, so allowing people to follow has saved me from accepting or declining many new friend requests now. I like that option on FB because you can still keep your personal stuff as private as possible while sharing content that you'd hope to go viral with the public.

    Many people do join facebook to make an account for business only. I guess what it boils down to is this: how much time does one have to invest on each social media platform they have joined? My first is beBee, second FB and twitter last. @Paul "Pablo" Croubalian's tweetpack has been invaluable for me on Twitter.

    Interesting. I have always had separate personal and business social media accounts. I did that as I noticed when I posted music on my Twitter business account, people unfollowed me. Initially,

    I didn't realize Facebook had business pages so I had a profile. Quite a few colleagues and some clients followed me. I encouraged them to migrate to the business page but many of them stayed on the personal profile. They are active and engaging.

    Thanks for the tips, Anne. As you said, a plan B is essential. A couple of additional items to consider include access to power, electrical outlets, or power drops. If a generator is necessary it will need to be budgeted for and where it is placed in relation to the event may require additional planning to reduce noise pollution.

    If having food at your event, be sure to consult with your catering team and trust their expertise. The types of foods to serve and how long they will last will depend on your location and weather.

    And don't forget about the bathrooms and trash receptacles. How far away are they? How many will be needed for the number of attendees you expect? Remember to schedule pickup once your event is over.

    I think another reason for being first is if you feel kind of nervous. At least you won't have to wait what seem to be an eternity for your turn to speak ;-D

    And even if you're not nervous, you're normally much more clear-headed to present your thoughts when you're the first

    Great discussion and i think the argument could be made for either. I prefer to speak or present at anytime. Going first sets the standard of comparison, but if someone comes along with a better presentation/understanding of issues/solutions you can be unseated. The one thing i would say about speaking after first or last, i get to see the audience and their response to speakers. This has two effects, one i get to know them potentially and i get to tweak my ad lib comments towards a "known" audience.

    In the end i would agree with you in general, your presentation needs to be the dragon slayer that slays the dragon first or after everyone else has just beat it to death

    23/03/2017 #16 Javier ๐Ÿ beBee
    When evaluating sequential information (as list of vendor presentation), people might get more influenced by the first presentation and this pattern is known as a โ€œprimacy effectโ€œ. In some instances, the final presentation has more more influence than the first presentation. Such a pattern is known as the โ€œrecency effectโ€œ. Now the question is which effect is more dominant and in which situations.

    Is there a distinct advantage in presenting first versus last?
    Should you pick an interview slot that is first in line or last in line?
    Should you speak first or last?

    You should present, interview or speak first, if the others will follow you immediately and there will be a delay between the series of presentations and the judgment or decision because of primacy effect.

    On the other hand, you should present, interview or speak last, if there will be a delay between the presentations or interviews and the decision-makers will need to render judgment or decision right after the last presentation or interview because of recency effect. From my sales experience, such scenarios happen quite often, where customers will schedule vendor presentations separated by time and then render judgement fairly quickly after the last presentation. So if you are involved in enterprise sales, think about the recency effect when offered a choice to pick a presentation slot.

    Speakers were asked if they would prefer to present first or last? End of day presentations slots are always a problem. It's bad design that makes this spot untenable.

    Event and meeting planners would be wise to build in a buffer and end the day with a networking opportunity. Let's say your agenda is to end at 5:00, reserve the last 45 minutes to an hour for a networking reception or event. Schedule that to go from 4: 00 or 4:15 to 6:00 or 6:30. So if anything gets cut short, it's the networking. Make it compelling so that people want to stick around.

    NEVER schedule departure for dinner right after the day's meeting agenda ends. Opt for a 8:00 or 7:30 departure for an 8:00 dinner seating.

    Definitely first. Without exception, every time I have presented last, the meeting, conference or event has fallen behind schedule and the compressed time I had to begin with has been chopped down even further. It's an impossible situation, especially when there is a hard stop due to a dinner reservation. On a going forward basis, I will not be accepting any engagements during this time slot.

    Thanks for this great write-up, Neil Hughes! To share this experience with some of my favorite online personalities - but in person - is going to be outstanding. Can't wait to see John White, MBA again, and to meet Heather R. Younger, J.D., CCXP, Karthik Rajan, Sarah (Sally) McCabe, Chris Spurvey, and Dustin McKissen in person. And those are the facilitators! On top of this great line-up, we get to learn from Aaron Skogen, Amy Blaschka, Zach Messler, and more. I'm giddy. Seriously giddy.

    Kudos on another exemplary read, @Neil Hughes. It sounds like @Sarah Elkins has put together a wonderful conference with an impressive list of speakers. As I've previously written, folks should not rely on social media networking alone because, while helpful, it will only get one so far.
    To be an outstanding networker requires taking the leap from online networking to offline networking in-person. That's really how one solidifies meaningful relationships. Unfortunately, this is becoming less and less commonplace in today's fast-paced mobile, digital and virtual world -- especially among Millennials and Gen Z.
    Therefore, I commend Sarah for taking the time, effort and energy to arrange this conference. The only downside I see is the cost. Then again, one can't always put a price tag on the long-term value of building in-person networking relationships.

NLV . Sitting here in Bangalore I have already done it with some of the geographically separated connections when they were passing by this part of the world..And to @John White, MBA and many other friends participating in this...Have great time.

    Neil Hughes.To be face -to -face with online friends is an interesting experience.But people interest in conferences goes beyond our online dreams to the realities of our markets.It goes beyond personal preferences to seeking diverse,specialized and multi-faced information that no single platform can offered. When you go off-line you will be surprised to know how far our textual databases differs from the realty of a numerical world.

    #5 is a thought about regard. The value of regard is its diversity. We end a note and say "best regards" and it means something if we mean it. When I am watching sports I am watching excellence, we all are. I will watch the Olympics because through regard for people like Usain Bolt I take it seriously. So do governments but because of the sheer dollar value of it - but there are truths I also take into regard, and one of them is the reality of the Olympic ideal - that the idea of the noble amateur was actually an elitist mechanism to ensure that poor people that could afford to compete as professionals, could not do so. This is not something to be sad about, for this is what makes a Justin Thomas more important to me than a Usain Bolt - because there is no price of entry to thinking alongside good people and there is nothing to win here but our wisdom. That is also what makes Jim Thorpe and Billy Mills also more fascinating as a result - our love for the humanity in story vs. hero worship.

    Thank you for sharing and the comments everyone.#4 Firstly thank you for reading.

    I am all good with inspirational stories but I also desire the face of reality. Billy Mills is representative of the everyday man who is motivated by a Rocky Balbao or against all odds story, I get that. In knowing the Billy Mills story, we should know the Jim Thorpe story because that is what balances my own perspective about the Olympics http://www.smithsonianmag.com/history/why-are-jim-thorpes-olympic-records-still-not-recognized-130986336/?all Yes, the IOC gave back Thorpe only his medals but that was 30 years after he died and they added a nasty footnote that continues to dishonour him. The Olympics no longer represent the mythologies we have been taught to think they are. On the one hand we are taught Olympic ideals and on the other the Zika virus is only a global threat unless we have to cancel an Olympics. I am all for happiness and inspiration, but without truth it is an illusion that transforms into a delusion, and if that is what we desire, inspirational stories becomes simply a selfish affair because then we pick and choose our mythologies and our heroes. Find inspiration in all 7 billion people and in this, Billy Mills is honoured.
