Combining Business with Education – How Get Global Got it Right
With Get Global having wrapped up last Friday evening, the team behind the one-day exhibition are contemplating the areas of success behind the trade event’s second year.
Donna Kessler, co-founder of Get Global, “The attendees who registered early enough and were able to catch Lola Berry at our Get Up & Go Breakfast in the ICMI Inspiration Corner, were amazed at how approachable and warm she was. We felt very lucky to have secured Lola through our great partnership with ICMI Speakers and Entertainers. I loved hearing the feedback after her talk – we were all motivated to put down the unhealthy food and reach for a piece of fruit!”
“I was lucky to have been able to see some exceptional speakers during Get Global. Their knowledge, passion and unrivalled experience with some of the most well-known brands in the world, helped not only to break up the day, but gave me lots of inspiration when I returned to work on Monday!” enthused Janelle Maber, Event & Registration Co-ordinator, Isagenix
Barry Markoff, CEO, ICMI Speakers & Entertainers: “ICMI already has a great reputation for sourcing the right speakers for events all around the world, but our partnership with Get Global has shown how speakers of such diverse backgrounds can be integrated into a trade event. Sparking many conversations on the exhibition floor, and no doubt, back in the office this week!”
Lola Berry was followed throughout the day by Contiki Holidays veteran, Mark Carter, corporate motivator and skills trainer, Andrew Klein, Stevan Premutico, founder of restaurant booking tool, Dimmi and former Facebook ANZ CEO, Stephen Scheeler and pocket rocket, Samantha Gash, endurance athlete and social entrepreneur.
Gary Bender, co-founder of Get Global, “One of the biggest successes of Get Global 2018 was our partnership with ICMI. They were able to add another dimension to our event and the mix of speakers really created a great deal of talkability during and after the event. The quality of speakers and their chosen topics inspired and motivated me, and certainly all who attended the sessions.”
Vanessa Grant, Account Director, 212f, “I loved the concept of the ‘silent disco’ in the speaker corner. As it was located right on the exhibition floor, we were all given Silent Sounds headphones to listen to the speakers. This meant we weren’t disturbed if we were not at the speaker session while trying to have business discussions and vice versa. What a great idea! And made it even more memorable!”
Get Global – Where the World Meets, was held at the International Convention Centre, Sydney on Friday 20th July, 2018. The venue for Get Global 2019 is yet to be announced but will take place on 26th July 2019.
