After a little break between episodes, we are back in your ear holes for another episode of our wedding podcast, Project Engaged! On episode 30 (season 3), we (Aleks and Eddy) chat about the Beat Mix conference we both attended in Tweed Heads in early August.
It was a fantastic opportunity to catch up with wedding and event DJs and MCs from all around Australia. The conference was organised by a member association – the DJAA – DJ Alliance Australasia.
The conference involved some technical stuff, but otherwise, it was a huge variety of topics related to business, marketing, music, well being and client service.
In this episode, we cover some of the topics and themes that may be interesting for our listeners. We also captured some sound bites from other attendees, which we played throughout the episode.

Big takeaway: DJs and MCs need loads of different skills!
There were so many incredibly smart people in the room! Lots of them have their own businesses so need business, marketing and operational skills, but it goes beyond that. You need great people skills, you need emotional intelligence to be able to read a crowd and you need technical skills too. Plus lots of problem solving and working under pressure!
So all in all, we were really impressed with the calibre of attendees and how friendly everyone was.
