Harmoniously Hijacking a Conference

leave a comment »

By Larry Chiang

The idea behind my conference launch techniques are to go beyond “value added hijacking”.

By hijacking, I do not mean the 1970 method of taking over a plane like a terrorist. Hijacking now is taking over a lame networking event for entrepreneurs and making it magical*.

Harmony implies oscillating at the same frequency. Harmony implies waves at the same crescendo. Harmony conveys being in synchronicity with the existing piece of crap annual networking conference run by dinosaurs.

Here are ideas to harmoniously hijack:

-1- Realize harmoniously hijacking is not innovative.

I am revealing what top performers do to be legendary. Take the ‘live action business case study’ Monsters Inc. Mike Wisowski hijacked a company that he used to be an administrative assistant to. He went from ass’t to alpha officer when his old boss, James P. Sullivan (Sulley) pictured here in the feed of : http://www.twitter.com/6502838008


Mike Wisowski hijacked a outdated dinosaur concept in a harmonious way that literally included laughter and positive energy.

In a similar set of notes that you can pattern replicate in harmony, Tom Cruise did the same thing in Jerry Maguire. He promoted a 10-year veteran Wide Receiver at the NFL draft pre-show conference. Tom Cruise’s character literally hijacked the conference and took it over for an hour.

-2- While harmoniously hijacking, you won’t need to ask for forgiveness nor have to ask for permission.

Google that.

Google Larry Chiang permission forgiveness


-3- I do this all-the-time.

Who taught me.
My mentor.
