Fancy three productive corporate days in Sardinia? It's not that crazy after all!

So this week I'm taking a break from discovering new venues in London. That's not to say that I'm not discovering new event venues though. I'm in Sardinia, an island I'd never been to before. In fact, all I'd really heard about the island was that my grandmother had been here "on Joey's yacht" back in the 70's.

How to host an event

“Everybody has a plan. Until they get punched in the face!” Mike Tyson. So far this year, I’ve been mostly hosting events. Pretty big ones, as it happens. Whereas I’ve spent the last few decades marauding around the events industry as if I’m some kind of Rockstar (although, having said that in jest, check out this from an event at the Hippodrome last year!),

London's coolest urban spaces

It's no secret that an interesting (and, better still, cool) venue space results in a higher percentage turn-out and, perhaps more importantly, better levels of delegate engagement. Our extensive research tells us this but, let's be honest, so does common sense! What's even more revealing though is that the more traditional institutions - banks, management consultants, legal and accountancy firms are acutely aware of this fact and 'uniqueness' is now second only to budget in the planning process.
