Mobile DJ Trade Tips - Issue 49 - Pro Mobile Conference

Pro Mobile Conference 17th & 18th March 2013


The good people behind the only dedicated mobile DJ magazine, Pro Mobile, and the largest DJ Show, BPM, will be hosting the first Pro Mobile Conference in March next year.

The whole essence of the conference is learning and developing what you do to stay one step ahead in what is a very competitive industry. Another good reason to attend is to network with other likeminded people; many a good idea has been gleamed over a cup of coffee or a meal!

The agenda will include a combination of seminars, interactive group sessions, workshops and panel discussions to inspire you and enable you to achieve more, whether it's to gain extra bookings or achieve a higher rate.

It's shaping up to be an unmissable event. The full program for the two days will be confirmed on the conference website later this week, however we can exclusively reveal details of the four keynote education sessions:

Sunday 17th March

Jim CeroneThe Perfect Host – Jim Cerone

This inspiring keynote seminar will outline a change in mind-set that, if adopted, could completely revolutionise your performances and mobile DJ business.

A successful and well-respected DJ and educator in the USA, Jim Cerone will be speaking in the UK for the first time at the conference. In this lead keynote session Jim will go in to detail discussing the 10 essential ingredients for becoming ‘The Perfect Host’.

Following on from the keynote seminar Jim will host two separate (identical) interactive workshop sessions teaching 10 ways to be much more effective in front of a live audience. This will allow smaller groups of delegates to train with Jim and put some of his ideas and principles into practice.

AlexInsights from Improvisation – Alex MacLaren

This session is about learning and applying techniques from outside of the traditional mobile DJ skill-set for above average results.

The ‘out of industry’ speaker for the conference, Alex MacLaren, is a professional actor, improviser and trainer. In this entertaining and engaging presentation Alex will share the principles and procedures used by stage improvisers such as those in ‘Whose Line is it Anyway’ and show how they can be applied by mobile DJs, both at events and in running their businesses.

Later in the afternoon Alex will then host two interactive workshops in which he will take delegates through exercises in pairs, threes and small groups to demonstrate the principles of improvisation and their applications.

Monday 18th March

Mark WalshStage Work & Performance Art - Mark Walsh

This interactive presentation is all about working on your business’s biggest performance asset, YOU.

A good consummate performance will win any audience over and is the fast track to gaining an audiences’ respect and ultimately increased bookings. Make yourself into a consummate professional and stand out from the crowd.
