I recently spoke at the westridge marketing conference in New York City. A few months ago, I was invited to speak at the conference again, and this time I was able to speak to the entire audience of about 800 people. I was so impressed with how much of my talk people remembered. I’d like to share a few of the things I said that stuck with the audience.
One of the things the audience was most impressed with is how much of my talk was about their company. I started by telling the audience that I was the CEO of Westridge, and that this was the fourth time I’d been invited to speak at a Westridge company conference in the last 12 months. I said that I was nervous, because I didn’t know if I was going to be able to keep up.
People who attend Westridge events usually know at least a little bit about the company. I think its important to be able to talk about your company in a way people can fully appreciate. This is especially true at a conference like this, where you are meeting with hundreds of people you might not have met. And even more, it is especially important for the company to know that you are comfortable with them, and that you know what they want from you.
And of course, we want the Westridge marketing team to know that we are good people to work for. We want to know that we are good people to work for, because this is our job, our purpose, and the best way to show it is to be a good person.
That’s why we have every intention of getting along with all of you. We want to be a part of this community because we want to help people. We want to help them to be the best version of themselves that they can be. We want to provide a place where people can learn from one another, and we want to be comfortable with each other because we want to make it a comfortable place for anyone to go. And in the end, that is what is really important.
I was talking with a guy at a conference in San Francisco last year. He told me that he was worried that people, for whatever reason, weren’t a part of this community because they didn’t like or respect the people who were here. Because people like himself might not be here next year, they didn’t want to come back next year, just because they didn’t like or respect the people that came in the past.
This is exactly what people are doing. The westridge community has, in the past, been a place of respect, a place where people could come together and talk about ideas and ideas and talk about how to get things done. But, the fact is that westridge is in decline because people are afraid of being rude in public.
When you’re in this business you dont just go out and get jobs, you go out and get a job which you will have to do for the rest of your life. This is why people want to move to the westridge community because they dont want to get into a situation where they are dealing with the rude people out there.
Most of us have experienced this fear of being rude in public. Maybe youve even experienced it yourself. Westridge was a small upstate NY town that grew in popularity during the 70s. In the early 80s they became famous for hosting a lot of music conventions. The more convention attendees the more money they could make. The problem is that as people grew in number, the events started to become more and more expensive, which in turn caused attendance to drop.
That is why Westridge eventually decided to close the doors of the events they hosts. They were sued by a few bands, and that was just the start of it. The community started to get angry and even violent because they felt as though they were being cheated out of the money they were trying to earn as a result of the overpriced events they hosted.
