When you’re running a multinational organisation, it’s important to give your employees a platform to make suggestions. For this reason, Life Science Associates had been running an annual conference for years on behalf of a large scale healthcare solutions enterprise; but when COVID-19 hit, suddenly it was impossible to hold this conference face-to-face. They needed to deliver the conference virtually, but their skill set for online conference hosting wasn’t fully developed.
That’s where VTT comes in. We were asked to consult and collaborate with Life Science Associates and their client to convert the conference’s planned contents into a series of 4-hour online events. We then needed to co-host and facilitate the conference as Master of Ceremonies, to ensure everything ran smoothly and to deal with any technical challenges that arose.
As this conference was all about presenting ideas to the highest levels of management, the pressure was on to have the conference be professionally delivered and problem-free so that the proposals could shine without being undermined by the unprecedented circumstances.
Feedback: Our client was very grateful to be given complete peace of mind; knowing that someone else had taken responsibility for the tech whilst ensuring that this high-profile event would run without issues allowed Life Science Associates to focus on the conference content without being distracted by logistical concerns.
