I've spoken at many virtual events, and attended far more. Some were good, but most were, quite frankly, pretty awful.
Frustrated with organizers squandering the incredible opportunity presented by virtual events, in 2021, I launched my first virtual event.
Since then, I have run over a dozen events. These events are highly engaging, powerful, and even transformational.
I teach people to run events that don't suck because I want there to be more great events out there. I want better stages to speak on and better events to attend, so I teach everyone I can to create better events.

There are a lot of virtual events out there, and most of them suck.
They suck because the priorities are wrong. They are all about the host and the producer and what they can get from you.
To do it right, we flip it on it's head. We run an event that focuses on the audience and the speakers, and when we do that, the host gets theirs.
It's also about engagement, connection, and creating an experience. If your audience wanted to watch recordings, they'd go on YouTube. If they wanted to sit and passively listen, they'd watch TV.
In this talk, I will share with you everything I have learning in three years of running high engagement virtual events and how you can copy everything I do.
