Airtable: Streamlining Event Planning and Collaboration

Hands up those of us who still use Excel for critical path and a multitude of other spreadsheets to track our event planning processes! Do you ever think, there must be something out there that is more efficient and easier to use, lets us collaborate better with team members in real time, and that we can use on our tablets or smartphones as well as our computer? If you answered yes to any of these questions then you won’t want to miss session 1 of our live webinar. Hear from Shani Taylor of Airtable--a new project management cloud-based tool for your desktop, tablet and smartphone that’s streamlining the event planning and collaboration process by merging the functionality of a spreadsheet with the power of relational database into an easy-to-use collaborative planning tool. Don’t take our word for it. Join us and hear what other planners are saying about Airtable.

World Café: Knowledge through Conversations that Matter

How can we design a conference program that allows for authentic attendee engagement and knowledge-sharing and elevate our attendees’ conference experience? Attend Session 2 of our live webinar to learn about “World Café,” an effective approach to group learning and thinking that accesses the creative and shared knowledge of your attendees. Hear about this innovative learning technique and how you can incorporate it into your event programming. Morna Ballantyne, executive cirector of the Childcare Advocacy Association of Canada, will show attendees how to use World Café at your event, taking into consideration the type of event and size that works best for this learning format, room design and technical needs, the advance preparation for facilitators and conversation collectors, and tips on evaluation and measuring success.
