Only our audiences truly know what they want to engage with.

With that in mind, for a 400 delegate conference back in February, I deliberately left a third of the programme completely blank. Then, live on the first morning, we let our audience pitch and choose sessions to fill THEIR programme.

Although a slightly nerve-wracking experience the result were amazing. We found ourselves with a programme overflowing with unique content delivered passionately by a cross-section of speakers. The buzz of engagement and feeling of ownership coming from our delegates was something I’ve not often felt at events, but something I’ll definitely be looking to repeat.

We used Slido to streamline and shape the process. You can read about how we did it and what happened here, or on the Slido blog.

Thanks to Slido for featuring our event as a case study.
