The Festivalisation of Events

Shocklogic has noticed a common trend recently, that is "festivalisation", while looking into how events are executed in different sectors.

Why You Should Embrace Virtual Engagement

Why is it so important to embrace virtual engagement?

Questions from the audience are the lifeblood of any decent conference. As a presenter, they make your efforts worthwile. They show that the audience listened and were engaged in the topic. How sad then, that in every conference, from insurance to pig farming, there is always a high percentage of people who may have a brilliant question, but hate the thought of standing up and asking it.
