Leadership Network is leading the way on online free conferences.
They started the domination when they did the nines conference that featured leaders talking to the other leaders sharing the most important thing to them in nine minutes (you can read more about this conference here).
Wednesday they held another online Conference called the Aha conference.
Featuring new voices that talked about Aha moments for leaders.
What a great idea and topic.
It was all good until it started.
Watch this video below and see what happened.
Did you hear it? Obviously you heard the clicking noise, but did you hear the guy in the background talking about the clicking noise?
The problem was resolved after about 5 minutes. But inside of that time I wonder how many people tuned out? I know I did. It took reading someones tweet saying they fixed the problem to bring me back.
I am very thankful for all that the leadership network does and the opportunity to attend this conference online for free, but I was quickly reminded how a great idea can go very bad very quickly because of a technology problem. We are moving in a great direction, just not there yet with technology and live online conferences.
Do you have a story of a great idea going very bad?
**later today I will have a follow up post about online conferences and the positives and negatives. Stay tuned
