Tech solution needed:
Corey asked me to post this dilemma i told him about a few weeks ago, which he has been thinking about but can’t up with a solution to. Hopefully his savvy blog followers will have suggestions for a program.
Here’s the email:I need to find an easier method/ program for doing my work.As i’m developing a conference, the agenda, done in word, is constantly changing. I move sessions all around, change the times, etc. here are examples of inefficiencies that take up tons of time— If I change the start time by 10 minutes, i have to go back and change all the time slots for the whole program to reflect it. i would love to plug in “Private equity 101, 45 minutes” and have all the times automatically change if I drag it to a new position on the agenda.— If i swap an hour long session and a 45 minute presentation, i have to change all the subsequent start times— I have 3+ different versions, because for example the version i send to sales can’t show potential speaker names. I would love to have one single copy and then elect if I want to include speaker names/ session details/ just titles, etc. Right now if i make one change to my master which includes all the speakers i have sent invites out to, i need to make all changes manually in multiple word docs.there HAS to be a program out there, right?
