So how did it go?
It was great.
Sli.do kept the process smooth and our delegates were excited to come along for the ride.
We knew our audience was eclectic and we’d worked hard to ensure the pre-arranged sessions in the programme would appeal. Even so it was amazing to see the breadth of subjects that our audience wanted to discuss.
There was no way we could have curated content as diverse or engaging as the sessions our delegates came up with.
It was also amazing to see just how many people wanted to lead a session. We had twice as many pitches as there were spaces and (I think) ended up with an even more diverse speaker pool.
The format and delivery of sessions was also brilliant. Some delegates came pre-prepared with work sheets and pens, some ran discussions, others presented case studies or ran working sessions.
Crucially, all of the sessions were led by people passionate about the subject and attended by an audience who had actively chosen to take part.
The buzz and excitement you could feel around the venue was reflected in the post-event feedback.
