Jack Morton Worldwide: 
The Importance of divergent thinking in driving innovation & other tools to enhance your creativity

Most problems are not new. The challenge is to look at old problems in new ways.

Join VP, Executive Creative Director of Jack Morton Worldwide, Richard Bradley, to find out how to unlock your creativity by thinking differently. Learn some simple techniques that will help you shift your perspective, challenge preconceived notions and help you embrace the constraints of the challenge at hand.

Mirror World

People remember how you make them feel, that is why being customer-centric should be the number one priority when planning any events. As there is less and less separation between business technology and consumer technology, being able to “touch” emotionally your attendees is key to create brand awareness. 

Creating immersive experiences that will empower the audience is how the events industry will remain relevant and continue to grow. It is essential to create the right setting where you can engage in personalised one-on-one time with your attendees, and connect with them emotionally.

BCD Meetings & Events: 
The Success Trifecta: an evolved collaboration model for clients, agencies and hotels

The relationship between the customer, the agency and the hotel has long been viewed as an atypical supply chain, with the customer sitting at the top and the hotel firmly in last place. But with a strain on hotel space, and a greater focus on working with accredited agencies to meet compliance demands, does the customer still command the number one position? Does the industry need a more tripartite approach which recognises the role of all three parties in ensuring ultimate business success?

 This workshop is designed to explore this premise and help customers, hotels and agencies work more collaboratively.

Awesome. I have it.
