• Westside Social-2 : Separating you and your Meetup - (Emotionally Speaking)
    Westside Social #2 Separating Emotions - You are not a Meetup, you are an Organizer understanding how to separate YOU vs your MEETUP is critical for well being! Have you ever gotten wrapped up in how your Meetup is going or how an event went? Or dwelled on opinions from other Meetup members? Its easy, we care, we struggle, and we push to try to make every event special. Trouble is we compare ourselves to our Meetup. So if being an Organizer gets you down sometimes? This Social#2 is for you! We are going to separate YOU(feelings) from your MEETUP(experience) and make you feel great about every event you do using the power of "Branding"! . Ooooh Really? YES! We will be meeting at the Old Town Patio in El Segundo on a sunny Sunday! So while we do 3 fun exercises - Enjoy the Cheap Beers and Burgers! So instead of Social Games (See Social #1) We will do 3 easy fill in the blank exercises.. And yes the cheap beer won't hurt it! First - Fun Exercise to Define you, Second - Figure out your Meetup Brand and Third - Plot out your members journey in your Meetup! TLDR: Go watch a video: https://vimeo.com/289403267 Exercise One: Personal Inventory What are the dimensions of you that don’t fit into a meetup? Take a virtual walk through your entire closet or storage area. If you can .... Take some pictures of that the entire personal space. Could be a closet, your office, your living room or bedroom. It just needs to be personal. We will use the power of SNOOP. To list things we value. That's it! Its based on years of research, and what we own tells us tons about us and what we value. Excercise Two: Meetup Inventory We will figure out your Meetup's Promise? Meetup's Values? And what is a Meetup's Personality? In fact - We will create an Origin story for how if you had the most powerful or greatest Meetup Group in history. Shhh - don't tell anyone but we will build your Meetup's Brand! Excercise Three: Journey Map your Meetup User experience What's it like to be a member of your Meetup? We will map it, pre-event, event, and post-event. And then we will ask a simple question... How is your Meetup Experience match your Meetup Brand or Values and how does it differ from you! All materials, maps, inventory lists will be provided! All you bring is your heart, mind and an empty belly! Take picture of a personal space too! Close- Open Forum. And Q & A for any questions on Meetup or Convergence event.
