He strongly believes that the events industry can help you become better at managing your relationships, live more lightheartedly and understand how you can channel your skills and knowledge to serve others. He has spent 2020 journaling about the pivot to the virtual realm, making presentations and met more people during the pandemic than if he went to face-to-face events.
Bryan talks about his passion for events management and his history within the industry. He discusses the pivot to the virtual world and strategies events can implement to add extra value to them. Bryan shares his thoughts on virtual events staying with us in a post COVID world.

EVENTMIND is a market leader in the virtual meetings and events sector. EVENTMIND provides training, consultancy and delivery for businesses looking to engage virtually with their audience and community. You can give us an email on email@example.com or alternatively call us on 0330 133 3485.
EventMind does not endorse any particular virtual event platform or software. We review the platforms available on the market monthly (through a combination of client feedback, test events and demos). There’s no platform which is an ‘all in one’ or ‘all inclusive’ solution when it comes to virtual event platforms. Bear in mind, most virtual event platforms were originally live event apps or software. Covid19 accelerated many platforms to pivot into creating virtual event solutions. In the long run, this seems to be a smart move as hybrid events are likely to become standard (especially if you understand how to monetize hybrid events and maximise global audience reach).
