Seminars, speeches and workshops are standard teaching methods that have stood the test of time but they are also a form of edutainment that some of use with curious minds can't get enough of. They give listeners the opportunity to learn about a selected topic in depth and hear about others discoveries. A listener can learn from someone else’s experience and feel that they went through the same event. In order to give a speech, the speaker needs to become an expert on the topic and, in effect, becoming the teacher. But when the Internet was born, everyone became teachers, speakers and producers. The barriers to entry for posting content and media have never been lower, and it's easier than ever to broadcast an event out to an engaged audience. But even though it can be done, doesn’t mean it should be.
Live events deliver the rich, powerful experiences that online media can’t.
Concepts like networking, renewed motivation and expert knowledge were driving forces in attending live seminars or workshops and none of those components can be properly delivered via the web. Live events give attendees a unique experience to be among like-minded people, visionaries and leaders in their field, all in one room. No amount of technology will be able to recreate the feelings and energy that is built within the four walls of a powerful seminar.
