I am a newcomer to the world of ImageSource and ECM; having never attended Nexus, I know no more about the conference than what can be transmitted through words. So, naturally, I’ve been tasked with calling past attendees of Nexus to tell them why they should return this year.
Over these last 8 weeks at ImageSource I’ve completed a wide variety of tasks. But, I have to admit, I was quite rattled by this assignment at first. How was I to tell people about a conference which even I had yet to attend? I was convinced that my ignorance would have me written off immediately.
I could not have been more wrong.
My background in retail primed me for the hard sell; I was certain that I would have to push the conference relentlessly to drive registrations. However, to say that my calls have been met with warm reception would be a drastic understatement. Past attendees have stopped me mid-sentence, reminding me that their previous experience was more than enough to make them want to come back. One individual stayed silent through my entire pitch, and at the end he confessed that during my rambling, he had registered online and was excited to meet me there.
After a week of calling, I’m fairly certain that all I have to say to get people to register are two words: ImageSource and Nexus.
My coworkers have been trying to convince me that this event was great for months, and I have had no reservations. Still, simply hearing the excitement from past attendees has inspired that confidence in me. When it comes to the value of attending Nexus, I no longer have trouble counting my chickens before they hatch.
