What makes a great conference? I have had the opportunity over the last 15 years to be part of some great conferences and also have seen some pretty average ones. Over the last year, I have been involved with some great ones that still stick in my mind. I have sat through some real clangers as well. What made the great ones great? I thought I would share some recent examples of conferences that stood out. Conference 1 This was where delegates had won the right to be there from outstanding performance but was also an important avenue to drive key business messages to the delegates from across Australia.

Some of the teams were small, others around 25 people and they were spread far and wide with various roles, functions and locations. The key aim of the conference was to connect the teams on both a professional and personal level and to ensure that every team knew what the other teams were doing and how they contributed to that success of the larger team and organisation.
