Last week we were busy at AIME2020, the Asia Pacific Incentives and Meetings Event. Held at the Melbourne Exhibition and Convention Centre, AIME brings together venues, event suppliers and event planners from around Australia the world.
It is a gathering where trends are featured, industry challenges addressed and new products and venues launched.
A key part of the program that we look forward to each year, the AIME Knowledge Exchange and Ideas Academy, brings together some of the best minds, from without and out the industry, to share their insights.
It was great to see Authenticity, Creativity, Curiosity, Trust and Vulnerability feature throughout the event.
Despite the onslaught of technology, events are still about human connection, experience and engagement. In fact, AIME was all about human interaction.
We have condensed three days into one for you here as we share our top takeaways from AIME2020.
"One thing I have started to do is label our volunteers as part of the workforce, at every moment I can. Making sure that the staff in our organisation are aware that (the volunteers) are another team, another part of the workforce, who are there to help us achieve exactly the same goals."
In the first of our Insights Interview Series for 2020, we chat to Tracey O'Neill, Manager of Volunteer Engagement at Austin Health.
We discuss how she started her career in volunteer engagement, how to build and retain your best team.
Our January update is out now! This month we look at the fundraising sector and how recent events will effect it, recap 2019, showcase our Stage Management services as well as announce our Masterclasses for 2019.
We are thrilled to announce that tickets for the Live Love Work Port Phillip International Women's Day Breakfast are now on sale.
On Friday 6th March we will celebrate the heart, soul and smarts of the women who Live, Love or Work in Port Phillip. Bringing the women and men of our community together, we’ll hear from great speakers sharing inspiring local stories, recognising the women who came before us.
We are very excited that Georgina Dragwidge of Georgie's Harvest at the South Melbourne Market is joining us as a our guest speaker. A winner of multiple awards at the Melbourne Market Awards, Georgina will share her extraordinary passion for fresh seasonal produce and supporting local farmers and the Port Phillip community. We can't wait!
