#GoalChats on Events with Jeff Pulver, PulveREDU

My January #GoalChat topics are focused on community development, starting with events. On Monday’s #GoalChatLive I spoke with my friend Jeff Pulver,, who has taken online events to the next level.

Jeff is an internet pioneer, entrepreneur, and long-time event producer, who has embraced the switch from live events to all-virtual… and then some. In the last year Jeff has started multiple weekly passion-based networking events, along with a series of programming. His most recent project is, a worldwide community school, enabling subject-matter experts to teach their passion.

Jeff shared his event journey – including how we met through #140conference – and his projects (links below), as well as advice.

To make the most out of events, Jeff says:

  • Listen
  • Connect
  • Share
  • Engage

Planning to produce events? 

  • Look at the basics: Who, what, where, when, how. And start with Why.
  • Pick dates
  • Plan content
  • Set the intention
  • Have blind faith

If you want to create or speak at events, just go for it. Remember, “Done is better than perfect” and “Good enough is not a compromise.”

Bonus Goals: Events

  • If you are at an event, and you see someone you want to meet, reach out immediately
  • Manifest your Event Destiny – Create, attend, or speak at an event

Whether you are making a plan to attend events, or create them, start with the D in The D*E*B Method. Determine your Mission. What is the purpose of this event? Who does it target? And how does it help? And what do you want to get out of it? Happy Eventing!
