Alan Forrest Smith Fundraising Event During World Internet Summit

I’m down at the World Internet Summit in Sydney Australia for this weekend and I’m very much looking forward to meeting Armand Morin, Shaune Clarke, and Mike Stewart

Alan Forrest Smith has gathered a lot of his internet marketing buddies and is fund raising for great cause.

No affiliates, no list building, just a good old fashioned fund raising for charity.

I slapped my $50 on the table straight away and not just for the special bonuses that are on offer.

It’s for this weekend only so move fast.

Joel Bauer Reveals Speakers Training Tactics

Check these 2 videos out. I’ve never seen Joel Bauer live but just by watching these 2 videos that I stumbled upon, it’s very clear to see the man is a master at selling from the front of the room. He’s coming out to Australia 17th-20th April and will be speaking with Mal Emery at the ultimate speaking event.

If you’ve seen Joel speak live before, leave a comment and let me know what you thought of his presentation.

What Can You Learn From Pecha Kucha Night?

Pecha Kucha night, what is it?

Basically it’s a gathering of young graphic designers and artists etc to meet, network, and show their creative work in public. Their works can be easily and informally shown, without having to rent a gallery or chat up a magazine editor.

The key to Pecha Kucha Night is its patented system for keeping individuals presentations to fixed time frame. Each presenter is allowed 20 images, each shown for 20 seconds each – giving 6 minutes 40 seconds of fame before the next presenter is up. This keeps presentations concise, the interest level up, and gives more people the chance to show.

It started in 2003 and is now in over 80 cities around the world.

This is great stuff. Identifying a problem or several problems (in this case, no forum for gaining recognition of artwork or designs to industry leaders, and stopping presentations from dragging on and on) and giving a simple solution. It’s no wonder it’s taken off around the world.
