What does Elena expect from their events

Every speaker should dive into their field, deliver passionate presentations, be pumped about what they’re talking about, network intensively, and get attendees excited about the topics.

How did they switch from live to virtual?

To adjust to such a fundamental change they had to rethink their entire strategy and approach to organizing the event. However, they realized that this is an opportunity to go from local to global and reach people all over the world. And they actually saw a huge growth in the number of attendees.

If you want to do it – you find a way to do it.

One rule all virtual events should go by

Make sure that ALL of the speakers meet their deadlines. This is the only way the organization of the event can run smoothly. Everyone must rely on everyone else that they will do their part and when the day comes – you’re as prepared as you can to meet your deadline and do it with passion.
