Introduce yourself to the EventTribe community!

Hi everyone - Im used to running evening events. However I’m just getting into the corporate world and I need to source technology/ finance speakers for roundtable events/conferences. I don’t really know where to start looking. Can you help me with a thread/website/key words which might be useful for my search? Thanks so much,

Looking to try and get the involvement of local cafes for special afternoon teas - a theme that will hopefully pull in some younger faces and a wider reach of London. Does anyone have experience of how the business relationship would work between local cafes ( not chains) and a charity would be? Just want to know best how to approach this.

Hey @danielle_tinsley maybe split these two posts out into their topics to get them more exposure/get the discussion rolling

Hi everyone, I’m delighted to be joining the Tribe. I am currently working on a large charity ball for the insurance industry which is on 4th May at LSO St Lukes (fab venue) and a few small events for a tech client. I also provide social media and marketing support to some of my clients.
Just wanted to say I love EventBrite and use it all the time!
Always looking for unusual and new venues in London.

Hi everyone, I’m working on a customer analytics to help organisers identify, reward and mobilise their loyal attendees and retain who’s lost or slipping away.

Looking to work with music venues and event promoters who run club nights, socials and networking events. :slight_smile:


Hey Nichola great to have you here. What’s the favourite venue you’ve discovered/used in London? Also thinking you might have a good answer for this thread:

Really lucky in my career that I have used some amazing venues. I absolutely love London and so my favourite place has to be the Natural History Musuem - Hinze Hall (where Dippy is/used be) is so majestic and sureal in a way. Also the Darwin Centre with the huge curve walled in the middle and outside terrace - really lovely for Summer parties.

Great to have you all here

Hi everyone. I run an integrated marketing agency and regularily get involved in events in a number of ways. We run our own events to teach business owners how to make their marketing work. I assist clients to put on their own events. And finally I am a professional speaker undertaking up to 50 gigs a year from company events to industry conferences and including CEO masterminding groups. I do a bit of charity MC work. So have a rounded perspective on events… a key marketing tool for many businesses and organisations. Look forward to contributing to this group. Barnaby

Hi @Barnaby_Wynter great to have you here and all your experience :slight_smile: [quote=“Barnaby_Wynter, post:271, topic:57”]

What do you find is the most common issue/misunderstanding/pain point people have with their marketing?

Hi, I work on making Meetings and Events more fun by using gaming techniques.

Nick, Like any industry that has gone through profound change in a very short period of time there are of course many misunderstandings. They key however is that the message that a business tells today must be totally about the prospect and no longer about the business. This one piece of thinking invariably reconfigures the whole process of marketing. Hope that stimulates…

Hi everyone.

I’m Julia, I work for a trade association as their Head of Events. We run a lot of training course, professional development meetings, networking events, that kind of thing. Plus our flagship annual conference.

I thought I’d join to get some tips from other event bods as I don’t have a huge team to bounce ideas off where I am.

Hi Julia, great to have you here. What trade association is it?

Hope we can be some form of digital substitute for your team :slight_smile:

Hi my name is Krys and I run an organisation called How to Accelerate Learning.

We run events for businesses to train their trainers, facilitators and subject matter experts to be sable to help people learn quickly, effectively and with more impact.

Hi everyone!

I work at a conference centre in Peterborough, UK and we hold lots of different types of events.

I joined eventtribe because I want to keep up to date with the emerging ideas / trends/ needs of the events industry and see how we can improve our service and venue.

We have been working on a large conference with speakers coming from America that starts on Monday. I’ll be organising / overseeing a team of interns as they work with us for this event! Wish me luck!

Have a great weekend!

Stimulating indeed and definitely agree - whole areas of marketing, like content marketing have grown out of this one concept/shift.
