My first independently-produced, medium-sized, personally-funded conference.
Over 150 people attended Speaking With Purpose, a one day conference for those looking to increase their public speaking confidence and hungry to develop their storytelling techniques.
Apart from paying a few friends on the day for their time to manage operations, I oversaw and did everything else, including:
- design and copy for the website
- all email newsletters and attendees communication
- the programme design (see above) plus badge design (see below in ‘lessons’)
- venue discussions, deliberations, decisions etc
A vast amount of learnings and insights was gained (which you can read about in this full event review blog post).
