I think it's great that we're doing all these events, and a little
writeup to say thanks is cool, but I think we're missing something
I would like to see an analysis for these sorts of events of:
- what worked well
- what didn't work well
So, for example, perhaps we learnt that the most effective way of
getting people to the booth was the offer of a free gift? Did people
care about CDs? Did we find that we needed more people on the booth than
were allocated, or did we run out of something important? How do we
ensure that the people we did abandon with a free CD are supported into
I think it would be cool if future such summaries could include a
"lessons learned" section, and perhaps for those to be aggregated on
some LA page so that people running an event in the future can avoid
making the same mistakes over and over.
