Sporty VIP speaker and a quirky London venue

Challenge

To excite and interest delegates with a well-known, inspirational guest speaker within a quirky, unique London venue. To also provide a lunch, a conference, an interactive workshop and an evening meal.

Our idea

To link the venue and the guest speaker. We wanted to provide a venue with a difference, we decided on the London Aquatics centre, a venue with so much to look at from both the interior and the exterior. Within the Olympic village and where the swimming took place, this venue was chosen to inspire and motivate. Also, a venue that is most definitely not your standard central London hotel, delegates were intrigued just from the invite – and that’s what we hoped for!

We provided breakout areas for lunch with a view of the aquatic pool, a space for people to network and reflect within a relaxing setting. We decided to link the guest speaker to the 'sporty' theme and arranged Sir Clive Woodward (OBE) a former English rugby union player and coach. He was chosen to fit with both the venue and the theme of motivating, inspiring and leading a team. Clive ran an inspirational, interactive workshop, giving delegates plenty to think about within their own Leadership roles. We then arranged dinner with a view overlooking the London skyline providing lighting and sound to capture and embrace the unique setting.

Embrace That Moment.

A VIP speaker, an Olympic setting and so much inspirational content.
