You're planning a meeting. How has the recession changed the information that your meeting attendees need? I answered that question in a webinar for MPI, Meeting Professionals International. Click hear to watch. I gave my usual economic outlook presentation, then added some comments specifically for MPI members. (I customize virtually all of my speeches.)
Some key ideas:
- Credit availability is vital if your audience consists of business executives or owners.
- The housing crisis isn't really actionable outside of housing and its supply chain. Even though it's key cocktail party chatter, don't go overboard here.
- Economic contingency planning for the recovery is vital for businesses, non-profits and government agencies.
If you're planning meetings, you should already know this. MPI is THE source for professional development in this field.
