What do You Want from the eMetrics Summit?
How will you measure the success of your conference experience?
Start your conversations by asking each other, “What are your 3 outcomes?” Shift from random introductions and chit-chat to the most effective industry event interactions you've ever had. We promise this new framework will give you access to the results you want - more quickly, more accurately and more enjoyably than you have experienced at any other conference.
Language is truly our most powerful technology. Create your 3 outcomes based on the following questions. You will be asked to share them at an eMetrics Summit Roundtable Discussion - and you will bring proof positive back to your boss that this was time very well spent.
Take the answers to these questions and form 3 S.M.A.R.T. Outcomes.
S.M.A.R.T. outcomes emphasize what you want, rather than what you don't want. Each of your outcomes will be effective when they meet the following criteria.
Use action words: listen, engage, meet, discuss, request, probe, discover, list etc.
Why is this important? What do you ultimately want to achieve? Be as specific as possible. Add, “so that ” at the end of your outcome and you'll find there is something a little more specific you are really looking for.
How are you going to do it? (By asking questions, extending an invitation, engaging in an in-depth conversation - Notice, again, the use of verbs here.)
You already know: if you can't measure it, you can't manage it. Create your outcomes with measurable progress, so you can evaluate the how effectively you are engaging with other attendees. Time is precious, so make the most of your identified outcomes in all your conversations.
When you identity outcomes that are important to you, you will immediately begin to figure out ways to make them happen. You are already developing the attitude and capacity to notice, react and create opportunities that bring you closer to your outcomes. You'll be surprised at what you can create with everyone at the eMetrics Summit focused on outcome creation.
"Attainable" means possible. "Realistic" means within the timeframe and with the resources you have. Be realistic and commit to putting the time and attention required to complete your 3 outcomes before the end of the eMetrics Summit. You're after immediate results.
Set timeframes for each of your outcomes. If you do not set a time, your commitment is too vague.
