How to Kill a Franchise Conference Mood
There has been buzz surrounding your franchise event and keynote speaker for months now. The day is here. The meeting room looks great. Excitement is flowing from franchisee to franchisee as they choose their seats. The speaker takes the stage to a preemptive standing ovation and then….the ear-shattering noise of microphone feedback. Talk about killing a conference mood, right?
You can’t always stop technology mishaps from happening. We’ve learned from our world led by wireless laptop remotes, iPod players and live-tweet streams that sometimes things just don’t work.
