The Most Valuable Aspect of TE Conventions
Are we promoting Top Echelon recruiter networking events this week in The Pinnacle Newsletter Blog? You’re darn right we are! After all, Early Bird Registration for the 2018 National Convention ends on Friday. (This is our 30th anniversary convention, after all. We even made a special website for it.)
So yes—we already have on blog post titled “10 Reasons Why You Should Attend Networking Events.” And we’re not done there. Oh, no . . . not by a long shot.
That’s because we recently posed a question in the Members’ Area in the form of a poll. As you might have already guessed, that poll question was related to attending Top Echelon events.
(Have we become that predictable? Is the excitement gone from the relationship? Don’t answer either of those questions.)
For those who have attended a TE convention, what’s the most valuable aspect of attending?
The choice of answers that we provided is listed below, along with the percentage of split network recruiters that selected each one:
- Meet existing trading partners — 22.3%
- Meeting potential new trading partners — 31.9%
- Swapping hot job orders and candidates — 2.1%
- Training by the featured speaker — 10.6%
- Sharing insights and advice with other recruiters — 33.0%
Valuable in the “eye of the beholder”
The results of this poll indicate a close, three-way race. Claiming first place was “Sharing insights and advice with other recruiters” at nearly a full third of the vote (33.0%).
Right behind that answer was “Meeting potential new trading partners” at 31.9%. That makes sense, since meeting potential new trading partners means potentially make new split placements. More partners, more placements, more checks to cash. Cha-ching!
Anyway, “Meeting existing trading partners” nabbed third place with 22.3% of the responses. This also makes sense, since many Network members make placements with their split recruiting partners without every actually meeting them face-to-face.
Events like the upcoming National Convention change that. They give recruiters the opportunity to meet one another and finally put faces to names.
Do you have names to which you would like to put faces? Then register for the National Convention! After you do that, get on the phone and convince your trading partners to register, as well.
It’s our 30th anniversary convention. We want to make this event memorable (for all the right reasons) and help our Network members make 2018 their best recruiting year ever!
