Leadership Network Aha Conference

Kyle Reed // @kylereed

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

    Ouch, that sucks. I tuned in long after it first got started, and the tech problems didn't go away.

    -They interrupted someone's talk by starting another one halfway through it.
    -The volume levels weren't equalized, so you had real loud talkers and real soft talkers…juxtaposed make it interesting.
    -They had to restart at least one of the talks over once it was halfway through…for some reason. At least what he had to say was interesting.

    I don't know what it was about “Aha!” but I was disappointed. Granted there were the tech problems…but that kind of thing happens. It just seemed that the 9's was vastly superior.

      Ya, there seemed to be some problems. I had to keep reminding myself that it was free and what a great resource it was. But you are right, there was some disappointment.
      I think a lot of the problem for us as that we expect technical excellence or for that matter everything to work…when it doesn't it kind of ruins things.

    I guess I didn't miss much.
