What if you had a blank slate?

RSS

Can you imagine being able to recreate the meetings industry? Just a blank slate and your ideas--no history, no balky stuck-in-the-1950s board members, no hotel attrition--and you had the authority to make it actually happen? Seth Godin invited just such a type of thinking on Seth's Blog: Starting Over, when he talked about China's unique position these days to completely reinvent the car. (Side note: today's Boston Globe had a story on how pollution from Asia is being found on the East Coast of the U.S.--maybe they should reinvent the car, and the factory, and the agricultural business, to shame the rest of us into better environmental practices. End of sermon.)

If you could start over, what would your vision for this industry be? It hurts my brain to even try to untangle the big ball of yarn the meetings and hospitality business has become, but it is interesting to think about, isn't it?
