Sunday 9th and Monday 10th took me to Heythrop Park in Oxfordshire to attend the Promobile conference 2014. The Pro Mobile Conference was a unique opportunity for me to focus on my passion: DJing and Hosting weddings. Combining information packed keynote seminars, enlightening panel discussions and interactive group sessions, the Conference inspired. Much more than that, it provided an environment for new ideas to form, plans to be honed and new contacts to be made through focused networking.
The lead keynote speaker was Randy Bartlett:
One of the USA’s most recognised and sought-after speakers for the Wedding DJ profession, Randy Bartlett has presented his funny and educational seminars and workshops to standing room only crowds at conferences and DJ gatherings across the country. He’s the producer of the acclaimed 1% Solution series of seminars and DVDs, and is a member of the Wedding Entertainment Directors Guild™ and the ADJA. Since 1988, Randy has been the owner of Premier Entertainment in Sacramento, California. A full time entertainer, specialising in weddings, his referral based business has his clients paying him substantially above the rate of average DJs in his market. Prior to his career as a mobile DJ, he spent 15 years in sales, with 10 years in sales management and sales training. It was Randy's first time in the UK at the 2014 Pro Mobile Conference presenting the keynote seminar. It was a huge honour to have dinner with Randy and his wife Denise on Monday evening, the night before I stepped into the class room to partake and be critiqued in his workshop, The 1% solution.
