Want to host a summit that’ll WOW your guests? Here’s how…


“No person will make a great business who wants to do it all himself.” – Andrew Carnagie

Are you wearing too many business hats? 

I get it. You’re a business owner, which means that you want everything to be perfect and run smoothly within your business. 

That includes the amazing summit that you’re planning on hosting. 

But did you know that doing it all by yourself is actually decreasing the likelihood of your summit’s success? 

Think about it… 

There simply isn’t enough time during the day for you to plan a summit while also completing all the business tasks that you already have. 

Luckily there’s an easy way to fix this. 

Here are the 3 steps you can take to host a summit that’ll WOW your guests: 

  1. Identify the things that you should do.
  2. Hire a trustworthy and adequate expert to help you. 
  3. Have a clear future in mind. 

1. Identify the things that you should do

Time is one of the most valuable assets that you have as a business owner. 

And let’s face it… 

There are only so many hours in a day. Therefore, you need to spend those hours doing the thing that you do best – running your business! 

However, that doesn’t necessarily mean that you can’t be involved in other aspects of your business, such as summit planning. It simply means that you’ll have to determine how much time you have left on your hands to help – and then let someone else do the rest. 

In other words, you need to determine how involved you can truly be in the planning of your summit and which tasks you’ll be able to attend to. 

You must be honest with yourself, otherwise, you may end up biting off more than you can chew – resulting in a failed summit.

2. Hire a trustworthy and adequate expert to help you with your summit

Now that you’ve determined which summit tasks you’ll be handling, it’s time to identify all the remaining tasks that you’ll need to give to someone else. 

By doing this, you’ll be able to establish how many tasks remain and the magnitude of help that you’ll require to execute these tasks. E.g. Will you require the help of one expert or a business that specializes in summits?

However, here you’ll need to make the smart choice and hire experts who’ll be able to get the job done efficiently and on time, without you having to micromanage them. 

By hiring an expert/s to fulfill your summit tasks, their expertise will be a great reflection of your brand in the eyes of your summit guests and customers.

3. Have a clear future in mind

Above all, your summit must work towards your overall business goals. 

Therefore, all aspects need to strive towards the present and future success of your business. 

Ask yourself: “What do I want to achieve through my summit?”

This way you’ll be able to delegate your summit tasks more effectively, as well as hire the right amount of experts at the right time – making the success of your summit, as well as your business goals so much easier to achieve.
