The online business landscape changes at a blistering pace and it is up to entrepreneurs to stay up-to-date with the latest tips, tactics and techniques if they want to stay ahead of the game! Events and conferences are the perfect way to blend work and meeting new people, but sometimes it can even be more than just that – sometimes it’s life-changing.
It’s this term, life-changing, that we hear from Tropical Think Tank attendees more than anything else, when we ask them to sum up their experience at the event.
Myself and my team have now held the event three years in a row, and we’ll be doing it again in March 2017, for a fourth time.
As well as just being life-changing, here are a few more reasons on how Tropical Think Tank can be a cornerstone in your entrepreneurial journey and the catalyst to take everything to the next level.
To get a feel of just how much of a ‘different’ event Tropical Think Tank is, check out this quick video, showing behind the scenes and more from the 2016 event:
1. Upgrade You & Your Business!
Being an entrepreneur means that you have to constantly keep your ear to the ground and update yourself on what is happening. Attending events like TTT gives you the chance to see what new business ideas and strategies are out there and how you can apply them to your own business.
2. Get Up Close & Personal with Industry Influencers
One of the best perks of getting to attend events and conferences is the chance to meet industry influencers. Listening to podcasts and reading blogs are always helpful, but nothing really beats the real thing when (if you are lucky!) you get to sit and chat at length with a leader or an influencer in your industry. Tropical Think Tank offers an intimate beach setting where you get to spend a week meeting with these leaders, along with the chance to actually build real relationships with them.
3. Meeting Your Peers In Person
Entrepreneurs are definitely a different breed and it is always refreshing to meet someone as passionate and as driven as you are about business. These connections can help you with accountability, guidance or even as a sounding board for new ideas. The power of being around like-minded entrepreneurs can be a driving force behind helping you come up with a new process, or even product or service to launch to your community.
4. Promote and Sell Yourself
Now that you are with the right people, it’s time to share or promote what you and your business can offer. Get those business cards out and start networking. Meeting people in person and explaining what you are all about creates a more memorable impression for future possible collaborations – and we’ve seen a TON of them at TTT!
5. Get Feedback – Instantly!
Another benefit of attending live events is that it allows you to share what you are working on with other people. Entrepreneurs who work at home can use the chance to talk to other people, to help give them perspective. By bouncing ideas off of people who know the ins and outs of the industry, you can refine your idea based on their recommendations or experience, before that ever crucial launch and make the best possible first impression.
6. Refreshing Connections & Creating More
The ability to develop great connections online has gotten stronger lately, especially through social media and while staying in contact through Facebook or Twitter is convenient, there really is nothing like meeting your contacts face-to-face that can help cement those relationships. That’s what Tropical Think Tank is all about… add a tropical beach setting and an action-packed week with highly passionate entrepreneurs, and you should be all set to create new and awesome memories.
7. Renew Focus, Energy and Passion
It can be easy to get stuck in the same routine day-in and day-out, which is why attending conferences like TTT can help bring back enthusiasm and focus on what is important in your business. Using the information and ideas you glean during the sessions, the connections you have established along the way, not to mention the inspiration from both peers and leaders alike, can help empower your business.
8. Taking Action is What It’s ALL About!
Sessions at conferences are always full of strong and valuable content that you can use in your businesses though sometimes we get stuck in the planning stage and never manage to put everything into motion. Tropical Think Tank encourages taking action – through its 30 Day Action exercise, its own private FB group where you can report for accountability and the TTT Alumni Program where previous attendees show what can be achieved in just 12 months time.
9. Have Fun, Fun, Fun!
After all the travel and exchanging of ideas during the keynote sessions, everyone deserves to unwind and have fun. The TTT 2016 week has fun activities planned from hanging by the beach with cool cocktails and heading out to sea on our special chill-out boats, right down to our now famous White Party (pictured below) finale so that we make sure you get the most out of your trip.
10. Lots of ‘Bang For Your Buck’
Taking the time out to travel all the way to the Philippines for Tropical Think Tank is definitely an investment which is why we want to make sure we bring you as much value as we can. Our expert speakers deliver valuable content, mastermind groups with like-minded entrepreneurs allow you to brainstorm and plan for growth and capping off every night with the chance to network with attendees and speakers – all against a beautiful tropical backdrop, seals the deal!
These are just a few things that you can expect to gain from attending a week-long event of business, networking and fun under the sun. Don’t miss your chance to take part in a game-changing week for your business – even though tickets have only been on sale for a few weeks, we’re almost sold out.
