The Change Mindset: Survival Kit for Event Professionals

November 29 — h. 11:45 - 12:30

The Nature of Events is changing… fast: global competition, demanding clients, new technologies…

We need event professionals who dare to leave their comfort zone, experiment and suspend their judgement. We need event professionals who explore the world from a different perspective. We need event professionals who who aren’t scared to fail fast, often and forward. Are you one of those event professionals who want to co-create a new context for the event-industry?

YES… suspend your judgement to break fixed thinking patterns.
AND… explore the world from a different perspective to generate new ideas. Co-creation is the key.
ACT… take small actions because the key to real innovation is doing experiments and fail fast, often and forward.

Take aways:

In this interactive and entertaining presentation by Cyriel Kortleven, you will get the spark, tools and language to influence others to be more creative and entrepreneurial and give a big boost to your own Change Mindset.

Yes And Act… Now!

  • In my session I expect from you to open your mind and be prepared to look at the world from a different perspective. 
  • In my session you will learn the “Yes And Act” mindset (Yes – suspend judgement & And – explore different perspectives & Act – experiment). 
  • Breaking down borders means exploring the world from many different perspectives.  
  • The key to events evolution is to keep exploring borders and staying eager to inspire our audiences. 
  • The Nature of Events is an evolution… a revolution… Are you ready for it?! 
  • Collaboration in events is a crucial element if you want to survive in this high-paced industry.
