Yes, as the challenges our presenters will be addressing will be yours at some point. Take good notes!
The conference is available through a browser on your laptop, smartphone or tablet. There is a mobile app for the community which you can also download and use. A few applications in the game room require the Flash player. A 56k Internet connection is recommended at minimum, plus a recent edition of a web browser.
Once you successfuly register, you will receive updates via email from us in the weeks leading up to the start of the summit. A couple of weeks before the summit, you will receive a full schedule. About a day before the start, you will receive instructions on how to login to to the community. Once things start, you may receive message in both the community inbox and your email inbox. Once the presentations are available, you’ll be able to view any which have been started or completed. We’ll make it easy to navigate!
As you may know, most summits are dry affairs designed for passive viewing. Unfortunately, research shows that this is a pretty ineffective way to learn. Interactive methods are much better and in this summit we provide an Interactive Room with learning games meant to stimulate your thinking.
Yes – there is down-time programmed in to the schedule to allow for reflection and review of the videos. Our aim is to go deep, hence the time needed to collect your thoughts.
No, there will be ample time between sessions to check email and do other tasks. Plus, several speakers will be having live Office Hours, which is their opportunity to answer questions and even raise a few discussion questions in a small group.
The typical attendee will have attempted time blocking prior to the summit. They are not average people by any measure.
Instead, they are amibitious, driven folks who are likely to have Type A tendencies. Their tendency to be Mighty-Taskers – people who create lots of tasks and therefore must time block – is an outgrowth of their desire to succeed.
Following this logic – they are far beyond “Time Blocking 101” level content. They would find such content boring and repetitive.
As such, they are looking for advice that helps them deal with the obstacles everyone faces when they get past the honeymoon phase of time blocking. That is, once they found that the technique works, they kept adding tasks until they began to experience the return of unwanted symptoms the technique is meant to address.
What happens once they arrive at the event is described here in the Summiteer’s Journey.
Our research shows that participants may fall into the following groups.
- Realtors and other Salespeople
- Network Marketers
- Parents of young children
- Non-professional Athletes
- Developers and Programmers
- Creatives and Freelancers
- Project Managers
- Consultants, Coaches and Trainers in Time Management
Can you think of any others groups who are using time blocking. Send me a note!
Yes. Some of the ways you can earn some revenue include:
- becoming an affiliate and earning a percentage of the fee participants pay when they register for the All Access Pass using your unique link.
- making a Special Offer for a digital product or service at the end of your presentation.
- offering a post-Summit training, mastermind or coaching series within the Mighty-Taskers online community (the summit takes place within this community). It has special e-learning and private group functions which can be fee-based.
There could be others, but these are the ones we have identified so far. While you won’t be paid for your speech, presentation or interview, you can use the opportunity to speak in other ways.
I have received quite a few queries about doing an interview instead of a presentation.
The bottom line is that I don’t care. If the impact we all want can be achieved with an interview instead, then it’s a possibility.
However, I don’t want the kind of “What is your favorite color?” conversation. Our audience is made up of a bunch of focused, ambitious individuals who are looking for value in the area of time blocking. I like colors, and I’m sure you do but…this interview must deliver value inside this context.
As such, if you are one of the few (un)lucky ones who gets selected for a summit interview, the preparation starts way ahead of time. We’ll set up a Google Doc and build up the questions and topics to be covered. I’ll be not only the interviewer, but also stand in for the average summiteer who wants us to get to the meat within minutes.
I will edit the recording down to the essentials after we’re done so that your best lines really stand out.
So if this format appeals to you, let me know!
There are some virtual summits which are simply a semi-random collection of speakers, arranged in arbitrary order. Others, like ours, offer to take attendees on a journey.
The idea is that a summit can be designed with a beginning, middle and end. Like a good story. Or a training workshop. Or even that last series you binge-watched on Netflix.
The narrative propels the audience to the end and keep them learning, engaging and being entertained. It builds a certain kind of tension that only gets released at the very end.
If this sounds like a very high aspiration, it should! LOL. Take a look at what I have developed and please send me any feedback you may have.
The general intent of the summit is to offer participants many interactive, fun opportunities to learn. Most summits provide only passive content – stuff meant to be watched. The big idea in this summit is to reverse that equation and to maximize active learning wherever possible. Our firm belief is that doing so this will boost everything that matters – a win-win for all concerned including the participants, the presenters and the hosts.
In this context, the Premium Package was crafted to encourage you, as a speaker to be as interactive as possible in your approach to the summit. However, to be realistic, not everyone has the bandwidth to fulfill these requirements. The Basic Package was crafted for presenters who still want to participate in the summit with a traditional, passive offering. All they need to is record their presentation ahead of the given deadline for inclusion (Feb 1, 2020).
The Premium Package includes the following required elements:
- complete recording of your presentation (with an optional Special Offer at the end) before the deadline of February 15th.
- Plus three of the following elements:
Optional Premium Elements
- Office Hours/Ask Me Anything with participants several hours after your presentation is broadcast. This is an opportunity to interact live with your audience either via video/Zoom or in a chat room on the platform. We will take care of letting people know when you are available. We recommend that, at the end of your presentation, you leave your audience with 3 Discussion Questions to be dealt with in your Office Hours/AMA to help bridge the conversation between the presentation and the chat.
- Promotion of the summit to at least 500 of your email followers
- Swag Bag – offer a complimentary piece of content for all participants to have in their collection of parting gifts. This can lead to your opt-in page.
- Interactive Quiz – while we’d love presenters to offer a full-blown assessment, or branched scenario, we recommend you develop a small Memory-Jogger quiz based on the contents of your presentation. These are remarkably effective in improving retention and recall of training material. If you complete the quiz, provide a link and a graphic so it can be added to the lineup in the Digital Interactive Game Room.
- Post-Summit Continued Interaction – After the summit is over, you will be able to interact with members of the online community indefinitely. One idea is to pre-plan a webinar or similar piece of content that picks up where your presentation leaves off. It’s just one way to keep your new followers from the summit engaged. You may also offer fee-based training, coaching or masterminding on the platform.
These are just some ways we are trying to bring our participant’s experience to life – these are the ones you as a presenter can affect directly.
There are four areas which will be covered.
Area 1 – Task Scheduling (Behaviors, Reminders, Theming, Energy, Habits, Balance). These are the finer aspects of time blocking that we can influence via our actions.
Area 2 – Analytics (Time Tracking, Measurement, Gamification). This is an emerging field dealing with the use of metrics to make improvements.
Area 3 – Aids (Paper, Memory, Apps, Devices, Auto-schedulers, Calendars). These external objects are tools we use to time block with every day.
Area 4 – Flow (Deep Work, Distractions, Sprints, Pomodoro). Our best work comes when we can time block a particular environment of high performance.
While most presentations will fit one of these tracks, yours may be unique. Consider these to be useful guides for our summiteers to discover useful content, so please don’t feel constrained by them in any way.
The main difference between creating content for this summit and for the general public is that attendees aren’t novices to personal productivity. Some have been doing time blocking for years, challenging themselves to manage more and more tasks using their calendars. Therefore, a presentation that speaks to someone who has never tried time blocking probably won’t do well.
Instead, look for the kind of insights that would either confirm what they already guessed, or would surprise them. Here is a full article on how to design your summit presentation.
