MBA2070 Q&A Wednesday: Any tips on running an in-person event?

The good news: in-person events are a viable option again (finally).

The bad news: it’s been a while. Do we still remember how to pull them off?

It’s Q&A Wednesday, and we’ve got a listener who wants to organize their very first live, in-person event. As it happens, we’re planning one of our own — and we’ve done a few in the past. Today, we share our best tips.

Think of the advice in this episode as “things we wish we knew before we threw our first event.”

Based on his own experience attending and organizing events, Omar shares the most important lessons he’s learned. We discuss everything you need to look out for, and the most important ways you can ensure your big day is a success for you and attendees.
