Conference Calling Tip: Invite an Expert Speaker

Is your group's enthusiasm lagging?

Is your enthusiasm lagging?

Do you want to broaden your group's knowledge, understanding or skills?

Do you want to inspire them A. to attend and B. to invite others?

Don't strain to fake enthusiasm; Everyone will see through that.

Don't treat your audience like children with taking attendance. That's a last resort.

Instead invite a guest speaker who brings enthusiasm, passion, shares a new expertise, broadens their perspective or just entertains them. Your audience will absolutely appreciate your efforts here to bring value to their time on the conference call. They'll reward you with prompt attendance, their full attention and positive Word-of-Mouth for you and your efforts at engaging them in the discussion.

Here's a short profile of one customer who invited a guest speaker.
