Every Event Can Change the World

There are some people that I like without ever meeting them in person. You know those people….some are famous like Walter Cronkite, Jerry Garcia, Tom Hanks or Rachel Maddow… all seemingly good people that you would want to have a conversation with and maybe a beer or two.

Then there are the people that we interact with online in our social media circles, the people that strike you as being sincere and passionate about what they do, the people that really want to make a difference.

Peter Straube is one such guy who has come across my radar lately.

Peter has a passion for what he does and I encourage you to give him a follow on Twitter and to read his blog “Events for Change“.

In reading through his blog, I came across his Prezi presentation “Events for Change“. This presentation puts together the idea that I have always tried to communicate to event stake-holders, the idea that events, no matter what, have the power to actually do good.

It does not matter if you are producing a national sales event with 5000 attendees or a conference for 50 quilters in Omaha…. each event, in its own way has the power to make a difference. Sometimes small and sometimes huge.

I asked Peter if he would mind if I republished his Prezi here on PlannerWire and he graciously allowed me to do so.

Do yourself a favor and take five minutes, stroll through it and ask yourself the questions that Peter presents, you might be surprised at your answers.
