Participate! Lab at The EVENT MPI, April 4-6, Montréal

Participate! Lab The EVENT MPI
I’m excited to present my Participate! Lab at The EVENT, April 4-6, Montréal! I’ll also facilitate a panel/audience “fishbowl sandwich” discussion on industry lessons learned (see the comments), and a closing Group Spective.

After a highly successful debut in 2018, three Meeting Professionals International (MPI) Chapters — MPI Toronto, MPI Montréal/Québec, and MPI Ottawa — have again joined forces to provide cutting edge, innovative, experiential education at The EVENT.

Organizer Karen Norris, who invited me, summed up The Event as follows:

“We pride ourselves on the fact that our conference is not a typical, didactic conference and we are an ‘experience.'”

Using peer to peer learning techniques, innovative technology, and creative meeting design, The EVENT‘s objectives are to:

  • encourage participants to collaborate with industry peers;
  • cultivate new ideas; and
  • elevate the entire meeting industry.

I’m happy to offer a rare Participate! Lab at The EVENT, and hope you’ll be able to join me there! For more information, check out the full program, registration, and accommodation and travel details.

Scenes from a Participate! Workshop and Solution Room

40-seconds of highlights from the Participate! workshop and Solution Room I recently facilitated for the New York State Bar Association.

One of the most rewarding aspects of my work is training associations how to create powerful and effective participant-driven and participation-rich conferences. I love facilitating the learning that occurs. The training equips the organization with the tools needed to transform its events. Do you want to significantly improve your meetings? Then please don’t hesitate to get in touch!
