No one would deny that planning and organising a conference is a lot of work. One of the biggest challenges is making sure your audience is engaged and trying to get the maximum amount of participation.
CreativeConnection can help you with that. We can provide you with a series of visuals and tools that can help you get the most out of your conference. We can help make it memorable and have attendees leaving the conference feeling like their voices were heard.
Some ways we can help:
Visual Minutes – As keynote speakers and panelists have their say we capture the key themes and ideas onto a mural in real time. These Visual Minutes capture questions and comments from the floor and you end up with a meaningful and memorable record of your event which participants can photograph and/or you can circulate digitally.
Feedback Mural – In response to particularly designed questions, we gather input on Post-its from all the delegates. In the background we collate and curate these responses into a summary that reveals the thinking of the floor. This process takes no time out of your schedule but grasps the opportunity to seriously engage the hearts and minds you have gathered in this place. We can also use streaming technology to gather input virtually from a much wider constituency.
Pre-event mural- Before the conference you ask for questions, concerns, comments, and we collate and curate all the input into a mural that forms the context for the whole conference. Creating engagement before the meeting can make a big difference to the way people participate.
Metavisioning workshop To complement all the thinking and analysis that is going into predicting the future, metavisioning is a process that asks people to reflect on what they want the future to be. It’s a deceptively simple process that asks people to dare to embrace an emotional approach, to dream of a future for our children’s children. We would love to take the opportunity presented by the gathering of people at your conference to capture the unease and yearning in your sector, and perhaps share similar pictures from other groups and other sectors.
Other possibilities we can explore with you are:
- Our Before Words Exercise
- Delegate Lifestories wall.
- Our organisational history exercises
- Our Declaration of Interdependence exercise where delegates collaboratively create and deliver the closing keynote.
- Animations and Instamations that tell individual and organisational stories.
