I spend alot of time in hotels … either because I am travelling or because clients think it is the best place to hold conferences.
So yesterday it dawned on me [yes, I must be thick] that by checking out Hotel ‘Events Boards’ and seeing the ‘themes’ of the conferences being held there – I can get a quick idea of the issues Corporateland feel they are facing.
However, as much as I travel, I can only be in one place at a time … so this is where you lot come in …
Basically, what I am proposing is that if you ever find yourself in a hotel, you take a photo of the ‘Events Board’ and send it to this email.
What happens then is that we have a ‘Corporate Conference Blog’ [I've set up BSI but have done very little with it yet] … where all the photos taken are put up, and we try to identify any underlying themes/issues by day/week/month.
Sure, it could be a complete waste of time – but something in my gut tells me it won’t be … because with a bit of intelligence, we should be able to identify [albeit broadly] common /emerging themes by city, country, region or World – which can only be useful in further understanding the underlying issues faced by existing and potential clients.
Of course I’m not asking people to go out of their way … however if you are at a hotel, take a photo and send it to the email above.
Really appreciate your help and yes – the photo above does feature my very bald head. Don’t you think it’s arty??? [Don't answer that!]
