Virtual Event Design

Start the right way, start with experience

Instead of clients simply delivering something that's a poor digital imitation of their in-person conference or event, this consultancy offering helps them to create something that's just as good, or better - but crucially is adapted to be effective when delivered remotely.

At this current times when audiences are increasingly fatigued by never-ending webinars and video conferences, it is essential that clients find new and innovative ways to create online sessions that are highly experiential for the viewer, retain a sense of fun and engagement, and provide huge value for the audience.

Our fundamental aim is to enhance and improve the experience for everyone attending an online meeting or event, through:

  • Meeting and event design support
  • Agenda-mapping advice
  • Briefings and supporting documents for presenters and attendees
  • Technology platform management
  • Hosting and co-hosting curation
  • Internal moderator and host training
  • Online presentation skills training
  • Recommendations for external guests and speakers

It is all about experience and added value.
