From Angel to Expert
Make It Happen Monday is already starting to make an immediate impact on the lives and businesses of the people who have attended one of the launch events. One great example of this is Lesley White, otherwise known as The Marketing Angel.
Lesley has been to 3 Make It Happen Monday events (Cardif, Bristol and the early pilot in Somerset), and in addition to already winning a Blackberry Playbook she's also been overwhelmed with what it's done for her.
Like many of us in business, Lesley struggled with confidence when it came to blowing her own trumpet, worried that her advice wouldn't be taken seriously, even though she truly knows her onions. One of the core parts of the Make It Happen Monday slot involves everyone in the room nominating 4 experts who they want to hear more from; so you can imagine the feeling when Lesley was picked above everyone else there as the highest "voted" expert at MIHM Bristol that people wanted to sit down and talk to.
Often in business there's nowhere you can express your challenges, insecurities and fears with complete honesty - but Make It Happen Monday encourages you to open up, identify what problems and obstacles you're facing, and to work together with others to tackle them.
Interestingly enough, Lesley didn't stand up and talk about her issues or "beg" people to choose her - people did that naturally because they identified her as an expert who knew her stuff; which makes the impact of being the top-voted expert all the more gratifying.
