For the 6th year in a row I attended the annual WEVA Expo, the event video production industry’s largest and longest running convention and trade show.
As you can see by all of my colourful ribbons, I was pretty busy with several responsibilities:
Green: MPV Accreditation
Navy: Local Association President
Orange Sticker: VideoUniversity.com member
By far the most time consuming responsibility was producing this three part series for www.eventdv-tv.com while at WEVA Expo.
My personal highlight of the show had to be the seminar I taught on How to Run a Successful Production Company. Below is the preview:
Trailer video: How to Run a Successful Production Company – presented by Shawn Lam, MPV.
This session was presented on Thursday September 17 at 8:30 AM during WEVA Expo in Orlando, FL.
I had a great turn-out and was very excited to share my secrets to my business success, while at the same showing my attendees how to tie-in the great tactics they had been learning from the other talented speakers at WEVA Expo. I’ve always been a strong believer that business strategy is simply an alignment of business activities towards a common goal and without strategy, a business owner will never achieve their potential. So the point of my session was to show how business stategy as it relates to a video production company, is actually quite easy.
If you were one of the many in attendance – I’d love to hear from you to hear your feedback, which you can leave by commenting on this blog post:
1) What did you learn from my session?
2) What will you implement in your business – be very specific?
3) Did I properly explain the big concepts and give practical examples? If I didn’t then let me know so I can expand in this very blog.
4) How relevant was my session to your business?
