I hope all are having a great summer! (despite the fact that summer has not actually arrived yet in Los Angeles.)
Over the last three events, main topics have included How to Become a Power Host; Serving Alcohol at Your Events; How to Enhance Your Listing; and Host Safety. There is always lively discussion on a wide range of topics, and it’s such a pleasure getting to know our fellow hosts.
I would like to host more of a mixer/networking event this time, as I have seen how many hosts enjoy connecting with others with similar spaces, facing similar challenges. That being said, I also want to facilitate the interactions, and prompt some meaningful engagement. One idea is to invite a few hosts to speak very briefly about one problem they have solved, or one specific challenge they are facing and need help with. Say 3 minutes per person, just a few people giving mini TED Talks on a single issue. Let me know if you would like to present, and what topic you would like to address.
Then we will leave ample time for everyone to interact. I would love to hear any suggestions from the group about how to facilitate interactions and ensure that everyone comes away with actions they can take to enhance their hosting experiences. Post here or DM if you like.
Thanks for listening, I will post more as we pull everything together!
