You’ll want to make sure that you capture the energy and knowledge base of people meeting each other so that momentum continues after the event.
Keep the energy flowing after the event concludes to allow for continued impact. Consider the following ideas for keeping participants engaged post-gathering:
- After receiving their permission to be included, set up a listserv based on the emails collected during the sign-up process. Make sure to request this permission during the registration process or signing-in at the welcome table.
- Create, or ask a committed doer to create, a private Facebook or Slack group so that people continue to engage with each other.
- Consider a follow-up survey to ask if people have made commitments and connections that weren’t possible before.
