Francis Wade’s Time Blocking Virtual Summit was one of the most innovative educational experiences in which I’ve ever participated. Although time blocking is a niche subject within productivity, Francis managed to gather together a vast and diverse set of speakers, each delivering his or her own take on the use of time blocking to advance toward one’s goals such that there was minimal duplication and optimal (and robust) teaching. But any virtual summit brings people together with presenters; what the Time Blocking Virtual Summit did was truly special. It emulated the best of real-world conferences (daily opening and closing events, breakout networking and discussion rooms) and virtual hallmarks (special bonus gifts for participation and the possibility for replays), and then added
unique and unexpected features (a resource library and interactive polls and games). It’s hard to believe this was a first-time event; I can’t wait to see what’s planned for year two!
