Jonathan Eunice (LinkedIn) sent along a tip about a seating chart creation tool called Simple Seating. A quick scan reveals several similar tools, often aimed at party panners or educators. We recommend seating plans as a really useful tool for those in charge of planning an analyst event. We think it is a best practice to leave nothing to chance when it comes to who sits with whom at an analyst summit or analyst conference. In particular, executives should be proactively sprinkled among the analysts, where they can be helpful. If not, they might focus on networking with each other, or on catching up with emails.
However, creating a seating chart can be a major time sink and a massive pain. Maybe an online tool can make it easier?
Tip o’ the hat to Jonathan for the tip.
