The concept focuses on having an agile approach to event participants. Together with clients, we strive to find an answer to the question WHY? By doing so, we effectively tailor events to the needs and wishes of participants and clients.
Since the very beginning, we have been using a combination of various methodologies. Crucial among them is design thinking, scrum, as well as the classic project management. By implementing such techniques in practice, we have achieved flexibility, and strongly increased the creative side of our events.
POWER TO THE MEETINGS MINDSET
Principles we base our methodology on:
Segment: Focus on participants
We can count attendance, whereas closeness can only be felt
1. Participant satisfaction
We respect and make participants happy
2. Extraordinary experience
We make wishes come true
We strive for measurable quality
Segment: Constant change
Changes are recurring
4. Responding to changes
Events are constantly adapted and improved
5. Rapid testing
We test new ideas and consequently reduce risk
6. Quick learning
We learn from mistakes
Segment: Team action
Anything is possible with the right team
We create with motivated teams, as work is based on trust
Reducing unnecessary work
9. Fast project cycles
Simultaneously coordinating several activities
Segment: Social responsibility
10. Environment responsibility
We build relations on transparency
Encouraging the path from communication to dialogue
Our methodology offers a framework, inside of which we can implement several processes and techniques. The primary composition consists of 10 segments that have proven effective even in the transitional phase to digital events (online, hybrid and virtual). The segments are encapsulated below.
2. PARTICIPANT JOURNEY
5. CREATIVE SET UP
6. SPEAKER MANAGEMENT
9. GREEN THINKING
The secret ingredient for energy: ROCK'N'ROLL
Successful event organisers know how important it is to organise an event with love and positive energy. You need to know how to create the flow of energy between the organisers and participants, the speakers and the audience, the sponsors and the crowd. The event venue has to have a flow as well, like rock festivals or large airports. Above all, to create good energy we have to check the three basic event elements. First is the element of surprise. Some also call it a ‘first impression’. The second element is communication, that is before, during and after the event, transmitting the energy all the way up to the heights of modern hybrid communication of social media. Thirdly, and lastly, is the element of an effective dramaturgy, which includes the ambience of the venue, design of the stage, light and, for the true congress rockers, also great rock riffs, or, in other words: each event must have its own colour and sound.
The book by Gorazd Čad, set to be published in 2021, will explain the concept in detail and will be complemented by numerous practical recommendations and best practice examples. POWER TO THE MEETINGS!
