Last week around 90 Executive Assistants and Personal Assistants flocked to Canberra’s QT Hotel for the annual Executive Assistant Network Canberra Congress. The two-day conference has seen great success for 10 years now, with events in each major city around Australia.
The conference hosted an array of professionals and speakers with years of industry experience to share with the delegates. Some highlights included Keith Abraham, who’s enthusiastic and charismatic humour left the audience feeling engaged and inspired. There were many discussion panels with speakers from different areas of many government corporations. Lifestyle coach, Madonna Barr got the audience thinking about setting new goals and encouraged thinking like a business person.
We have been fortunate enough to be a gold partner with the EAN group for a number of years now and the new technology that we had on display at our exhibition booth attracted large amounts of attention. These technologies such as the Smart Kapp whiteboard generated interest not just for installations but for individual events and we were proud to have them on display. Utilising some of our newest technology available we were able to show off some of these services throughout the duration of the conference and the gala dinner.
We were able to demonstrate our capabilities and the difference it makes when even just a little bit of ambient lighting is used in a conference situation to make an audience feel more engaged with speaker presentations and panel discussions rather than just having a blank room.
During the evening our ability to quickly transform the room from conference to gala dinner in just over an hour created ambience and a spectacle when each performer took to the stage.
What do you do to make your conferences stand out from the rest? Or do you perhaps need help creating the impact needed at your event. We would like to hear your experiences or needs.
