A conference always has a client objective, our job it to provide our clients with the solution, often “creatively wrapped” in an appropriate theme to strengthen the messages, and in doing so, to reinforce and enhance this, we often employ guest speakers to impart their knowledge and experiences in an inspirational and memorable delivery.
As an example, we developed a conference objective of encouraging “Corporate Endurance” during the recession, this was held in Liverpool in 2010 a “You Never Walk Alone” theme helped this crystalize. All 1500 delegates were motivated by a joint presentation from the TV presenter and Explorer Ben Fogle and Olympic Gold Medallist James Cracknell who crafted their recent experiences of walking to the South Pole together and rowing the Atlantic in a two man craft around the endurance message. Meeting famous faces also helps create a memorable event.
