    The questions we continue to hear from members are around events – how do we do it, when do we return to face to face, what will the pricing look like, how is consumer confidence, what should I be thinking about, where does the risk sit?

    To help guide us through this new environment, we are pleased to welcome to the AuSAE screen a line up of event specialists: Alison Gardiner, Director of Sales, Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre, Tom Meredith, Director, Outstanding Displays, Robyn Johnson, Chief Executive Officer, Meetings & Events Australia and Michelle Blicavs, CEO, Association of Consulting Surveyors, the panel will be facilitated by Sarah Markey Hamm, CEO, ICMS.

    During this live event, each of our panellists will share their perspective on the new events world and what we need to be thinking about from an organiser perspective at each level of execution.

    Our panel will discuss:

    • Guidelines and checklists to consider as we return to face to face events
    • The importance of having open and honest conversations with your suppliers
    • Delegate safety messaging and marketing
    • General safety measures and who takes the lead on what
    • The future of events – where will the need sit for our members

    Our panel will discuss the return to face to face events from each of their unique perspectives (venue, hire, PCO, industry and association executive), giving you a complete overview of the events experience and what you need to be focusing on and asking during this time.

    Sponsorship in a post COVID world is quite a different proposition than it was four months ago. While sponsorship income is dropping for some associations, other associations are still closing some really exciting sponsorships and partnerships. In this session Julian will talk about what sponsorship deals are closing, who is currently looking to sponsor, how best to approach, and opportunities that are currently available for associations seeking sponsorship funds.

    During this live webinar event Julian will:

    • Provide you with the tools and techniques to formulate an attractive sponsorship prospectus in the new world
    • Discuss the type of messaging you should be using with prospective and current sponsors
    • How to demonstrate value to existing sponsors during this time
    • Give real life examples of associations leading the way and demonstrate what they are doing


    Meet the Speaker

    The coronavirus pandemic has thrown all our future plans into disarray, and we still don't know what's around the corner in the next few weeks and months. In an uncertain future, many people fall into the trap of setting smaller goals or making short-term plans. But that's the wrong approach. Instead of only planning for what you can see, use scenario planning as a tool for working with uncertainty and creating flexible plans.

    In this webinar, Gihan will share practical future-proofing steps you and your association can take to:

    • identify potential external pressures
    • assess your current readiness for future change and disruption
    • focus on the strategies with the biggest ROI
    • make important decisions even in an uncertain future

    Meet the Speaker

    Gihan Perera

    Gihan Perera is a futurist, conference speaker, author and consultant who gives you a glimpse into what’s ahead – and how you can become fit for the future, in your professional and personal life.

    Since 1997, he has worked with business leaders, thought leaders, entrepreneurs, and other change agents – helping them with their strategy for thriving in a fast-changing world.

    He has clients throughout Australia, as well as in New Zealand, South Africa, the United Kingdom, Singapore, the USA and Canada.

    He is the author of “The Future of Leadership”, “Disruption By Design”, and 10 other books.

    He has always taken the lead in embracing emerging technologies and trends, from his university thesis in robotics and artificial intelligence, to leading a software development team building the infrastructure for the early Internet, founding one of Australia’s first Web development companies in 1996, teaching thought leaders how to engage in e-learning platforms, and helping business leaders build their personal brand and online influence.

    Because innovation is everybody’s business, and the best ideas can come from anywhere, he has worked with a number of industries – including healthcare, financial services, mining and resources, property, local government, education, and technology.

    Forbes magazine rated him the #5 social media influencer in the world (and #1 in Australia) in his area of expertise.

    He is a Certified Speaking Professional (CSP), the only internationally recognised designation for professional speakers. His formal background is in science and technology, with a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Western Australia. But he’s always been interested in people and the way they communicate – and how to become ft for the future, so they embrace change, act on opportunities, and live happier lives.
