I mentioned that I was going to post anything that inspires me, too. This article by Rania Naim has nothing to do with marketing or promotion, but I find it absolutely true and motivating..
“…You’re allowed to leave any story you don’t find yourself in. You’re allowed to leave any story you don’t love yourself in…”
I am not going to leave anywhere or anyone soon, but having this option available is always great.. Have a read here..
Not long ago I created an interactive pdf file. Now, when it turned out to be pretty simple – I got a chance to create two more.
Text Fields, Dropdown options and tick boxes – all in one! Check my form here! You gotta love pdf creator! 🙂
p.s. – the feature photo is a tiny sticker with contact details.. simple and easy!
That was first experience for me to put together an interactive pdf for our sales managers. Basically, they needed a little presentation of the company with a list of products we distribute – to be able to introduce themselves and the company. They also needed fields where hey could put Company name and their own details – done through pdf forms.
I had a go with that and was quite successful, according to the feedback I received afterwards.

So the conference is over, and the feedback we received was amazing from both the participants and the management. I feel very proud that I was part of such a successful event.
We had around 30 participants – flying in from all over Australia to discuss our new sales strategy and new product launches. Mark had booked the conference room in Rydges with all catering included, we brought the samples and all the hand-outs in and kicked off the conference on Monday morning.
A bit of stats:
- 2 days,
- 30 people
- 7 in-house presentations, around 1 hour each
- 4 guest speakers
- 3 new products internally launched
- 2 morning teas, 2 lunches, 1 team-building activity and 1 dinner
- 41 documents on the USB handed out to the team.
Here is a couple of quotes from Elaine’s email:
“…Just a quick email to personally thank you for what has been a great Conference. Believe me, I have been to many over the years and this by far outshines most.
I can only speak for myself, but from conversations had since believe that everyone who attended feels the same and has come away with an enormous enthusiasm and excitement for all the opportunities that lie ahead with these new products…”
“…It is apparent that you have worked some tireless hours to formulate and make it such a great and enjoyable couple of days. Thank you, I have benefited greatly from what I have learnt and look forward to now presenting, promoting these new products to the market and growing sales..”
Such a lovely person to put it all in writing! Such a great conference to be part of!
Just came across a great list of things to stop doing if you want to succeed. This was put together by an entrepreneur Zdravko Cvijetic in a blog post on Medium.
Looks like great motivational read, and with it on board I am starting a new category in my blog – will call it General Interest.
And now back to business!
