Country music icon Dolly Parton once said “We cannot direct the wind, but we can adjust the sails.”
Mobile DJs have to deal with situations that cause changes on a frequent basis. From clients who change songs to vendors who need certain accommodations for their work, we have to be able to pivot and adjust, while still maintaining control one of the most important elements of a client’s event! Circumstances that present obstacles at events are part of the job, and knowing how to determine which ones you can control and which ones are uncontrollable can be beneficial.
In this seminar, industry veteran Rob Peters discusses how to deal with change and the unexpected in your mobile DJ business and throughout an event. Using real industry situations and examples, Rob will help DJs and business owners understand how DJs handle change can be beneficial, and/or could affect the bottom line.

Chris D’Amico - Life Happens: How to Stay Motivated

Chris D’Amico

Life Happens: How to Stay Motivated
DESCRIPTION
My speech is not about the gear, the tech, the marketing or the parties. It is about the other part of the game. The mental part. Strategies and perspective to keep yourself motivated and moving forward when you are stuck and can’t get out of your own way or when life gets IN your way.
KEY BENEFITS/TAKEAWAYS
Mental Strategies: Life is choices.. either you choose to let your situation control you or you control the situation. Make a list of what you can and can't control.. focus on what you can.. that is your power. When you wake up in the morning during times of crisis and distress it's hard to get out of bed.. Keep your phone/ alarm out of reach so that it forces you to get up to shut it. Once youre out of bed.. make your bed... not only is it something you can control, it'll keep you from going back in it. (basically these types of tips)
Silver Linings : What we did with Kindness For Christopher in the wake of his death to change the world... nuff said!!
When it comes to your mind... If I personally traced back over all the years of what's held me up most, terrified me most, kept me held back from my complete potential, killed more of my dreams and led me to make some bad decisions ...it would be the thing between my two ears... that voice that talks to you... that inner dialog.. that's not God talking to you.. If your thoughts could turn into an actual human being would you be friends with him/her ?? Probably not... so give that voice a name.. personify it.. and tell them to STFU!!!
Your 'Why?" ...for me it was my wife and daughter. Whats yours? Self exploration.. a life audit. Teaching that if you don't prioritize newness and adventure all your left with is a life full of appointments and responsibilities.
remembering that being a DJ isn't just what you do.. it's what you are.. and you're not only a DJ you're an Entrepreneur.. what's the definition of an entrepreneur? "Someone who jumps off a cliff and builds a plane on the way down!! "

DJ Track Star Staci - Included: The Power of Music

February 22
Wednesday 1:00 PM 1 Hour

Included: The Power of Music

DJ Track Star Staci

PRESENTATION TITLE
Included: The Power of Music
DESCRIPTION
Only 14% of the music on the radio is performed by women. Only 1% of dance music on the radio in the UK is by women. Where I live in southern California, half of the people are Latino. Yet in any grocery store or big box store here, the only Spanish music you’ll hear is white-washed mainstream pop (Pitbull, Shakira).
Inclusivity is no longer a fringe concept or something that can be overlooked. As DJs, the power is in our hands to change situations like these. When you perform for the general public, does the demographic of your music (or staff) loosely match the demographic of your audience?

KEY BENEFITS/TAKEAWAYS
In this seminar, you’ll learn:
why inclusivity is a concept that brands (like yours) are embracing in record numbers
the importance of representation (in your music, on your staff)
how to expand your music knowledge into unfamiliar genres
how to leverage your commitment to inclusivity to book more gigs
how (and why) to get certified as a woman-owned or minority-owned business

such a move. I will teach them about the infrastructure that is
required to take on such growth and most of all, I will show

Wednesday 4:00 PM 1 Hour

EXPO: Absolutely Killing a Bridal Show

John Roach

DESCRIPTION
We know, we know. We’ve heard it all before. Bridal shows are for desperate DJ companies
who can’t fill their calendar organically. It’s a pretty darn good chance that when we start a
convo with a peer about Bridal Shows, we will be quickly interrupted with “Yo, man, we don’t
need to do Bridal Shows anymore.” But, here is our deal to you…if you come with an open
mind, we are going to smash your perceptions about Bridal Shows. We will convince you that,
no matter how successful you are now, Bridal Shows and Expos should be a concrete part of
your marketing plan and will help you grow a business that is built to last.
KEY BENEFITS/TAKEAWAYS
You will learn that Bridal shows are NOT about filling this or even next year’s event calendar.
Learn why the couple of hours before the show opens might be more important than the
hours the show is live. We will teach you what to bring and how to use it. And get this, you will
take-away that booking events at the show is not even the primary objective.
