Survival Checklist

Thanks to Regina Baraban, Editor of Financial Incentives & Meetings for this 2009 Top Ten list for financial and insurance planners:

10. Sustainability. Our future depends of sustainable solutions. Keep moving forward with your green meetings and travel initiatives.
9. Creativity. When times get tough, the best planners get creative.
8. Community. We’re all in this together, reach out to colleagues.
7. Technology. Learn it and use it.
6. Education. Business content, not boondoggles, is the mantra for meetings in 2009.
5. Big Picture. Think strategically, not just logistically.
4. Return on Investment. Crunch the numbers to prove value.
3. Regulatory Reform. A new era of regulatory reform is about to begin and your meetings will not be immune.
2. Perception. In 2009, image is everything.
1. Humor.

Amazing how many of these can and do relate back to green meeting practices!
