Dreamforce is here! Beautiful and sunny San Francisco opened its gates once again for an annual biggest conference for the Salesforce users. Lots of things happen during that event with of course hours of useful lectures and presentations. However, besides attending those, with no doubt, important parts of the conference, people also go to Dreamforce to make new business connections, acquire new customers and find new partners. During Dreamforce, you can have tens if not hundreds of meetings and taking into consideration how intense the event is, you will not have much time. Therefore, we are here to assist you with three tips on how to get the most out of your meetings when the schedule is really tight.
Prepare an agenda beforehand
It is undeniable that the first key to the success of a meeting is to have a perfect agenda before the meeting actually starts. Having the well-prepared agenda will help you ensure that you cover everything that needs to be discussed. During the Business Breakfast Tips blog post, we also emphasized the importance of preparing an agenda in advance. In addition to that, having the agenda will help you stay focused on the ultimate goals of the meeting.
Have a time management tool
In addition to having an agenda beforehand, having a time management tool also plays an important part in the meeting. Time is just too precious to everyone. Therefore, we highly recommend that you quickly set a timer for different milestones of the meeting and stick to it tightly in order to stay on track. Therefore, you will know that you will not spend too much or too little time on a certain part.
Have a recap afterward
Every meeting has a purpose and each has to end with something. Some result must always be achieved, whether it’s good, bad or neutral. It might be easy when you meet someone during lunch. You can usually think the meeting through as you drive to your office and then capture the minutes. But what if you have many meetings in a day? Dreamforce is here and, as mentioned above, you can easily have up to 20 or even 30 sitdowns! It’s absolutely impossible to memorize everything by the end of the day. Having a strong recap tool will always come in handy!
