Online Events by Estelle Keeber
How we stayed ahead of the change and became first big networking company in the world to take our offline networking events online.
Every obstacle is an opportunity to grow. It’s a little mantra I have been using for years. That way I always know that whatever I am going through that I will come out stronger and wiser for the lesson I will have learnt.
At the beginning of March Leona and I started having conversations about the impact of Covid19 on the world. At this point the UK hadn’t really been touched… it was Italy and China that were really seeing the impact. We were watching the news avidly in between holding our second awards and 2 retreats. It was at this point that we decided we needed to create a plan of action for the next few months. With face to face contact becoming more and more limited across the world, Leona even had to fly home to Spain early from the UK missing a retreat in order to be home before the country locked down.
We knew now more than ever that women were going to need to connect and grow their businesses in a different way and so the online events started to take shape. With the support of our incredible team we have been able to take all of our 250 offline networking events and enable them to run online. This took a great team effort BTS from tech support right through to our coordinators having to learn new systems and ways of running the events.
We are very proud to say that we held our first online networking event on 18th March 2020 and held over 100 more in the following 3 weeks. We have enabled hundreds of women who would have otherwise been unable to connect the chance to meet other women in business who really are going through the same struggles.
What better way to support each other than from the safety of our own homes!
The bonus of taking the events online is that you can now attend events all over the world increasing your visibility and networking opportunities 10 fold! It’s been an absolute pleasure to be guest speaker around the world sharing my favourite Instagram tips with hundreds of our attendees and I cant wait to virtually meet even more of you!
