TMBA 646: Key Takeaways From Our First Event In Playa Del Carmen

Podcast 44:12 | Download | Spotify| Stitcher | iTunes | Comment

This week’s show comes in the form of a de-brief of our recent in-person event in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico. Dan chats with Jeff Pecaro, who has worked with us for nearly a decade, and continues to do an amazing job helping our speakers deliver the kind of presentations that our attendees tell us they want to hear:

“It’s not a traditional business conference audience in the sense that they don’t want to hear your theories, and they don’t want to hear your grand success story, they’re looking for the things that they can take away and give to their team on Monday morning to help them grow. So it’s really much more of a community of peers than it is a captive audience. And I think that’s a big adjustment for a lot of our speakers.

Expect to hear: thoughts on PDC as a venue, some common themes that we’re seeing in our community as its revenue aspirations continue to grow, and key takeaways from the awesome on-stage presentations.

  • Thoughts on Playa Del Carmen as a venue for events 7’10”
