Planning a Conference or Major Staff Event?

Want to make it highly Memorable and Action Oriented so everyone gets long lasting benefit from it - even for people who couldn't attend?

BIIG eBookMindwerx plans, organises speaks at, facilitates and even MCs conferences and events of all types, and last year we did all that for BIIG - the Queensland Business Improvement In Government group, who we are proud to have been working with for several years now.

At that conference we worked with the great team at BIIG to plan a truly memorable conference, in which they wanted all 200+ participants actually participating.  We came up with the idea of having everyone explore and generate ideas to solve a few of the pressing issues facing the QPS, and in addition to MCing the conference we facilitated a series of short collaboration sessions using Zing Technology.

Zing allowed twenty groups of about 10 participants to brainstorm their thoughts and ideas into Zing for instant capture and review. In the process, thousands of entries were made, with many hundreds of ideas generated.

Following the workshop Mindwerx worked with the BIIG Team to produce an eReport/eBook on the conference, complete with Mind Maps of every speaker (done by Jennifer) and the key issues and ideas captured using Zing. 

And if you'd like Mindwerx to help with your next conference email bill[at]mindwerx[dot]com, We'd love to share ideas with you.

Jennifer Goddard, what can you say.  Engaging, energetic and entertaining.  She has an
incredible story to tell and provided the delegates with a few tips on improving
your memory including how to remember peoples names.  Though it was
her presentation style that has you wanting more.   From the
feedback I received from the delegates she certainly was
a real winner with all commenting on the relevance of her
presentation and tips to your work and family life.
Simply brilliant.
