These pictures are from the Vatican. The picture on the left is Pope Benedict leading a mass in 2005 and the one on the right is Pope Francis in 2013. The main difference is obvious. The 2013 picture shows an extraordinary amount of digital devices capturing the moment. People want to be part of live events and people want social media to be part of these magical moments.

Digital communications are great in terms of capturing and sharing it with our family and friends. In our business network, digital communications help us move large amounts of information around the globe instantly and gives us the ability to work with dispersed groups of people.  Read more »

Group Learning & Shared Experience

Two key benefits of Face-to-Face Communications and effectively using Group Learning & Shared Experience is the easy spreading of influence and people who belong to groups get things done to affirm their bonds.

Doing things together creates a sense of mutual trust and shared influence begins.

As you look at ways to harness the power of live events and to get a larger ROI for your event think of creating these shared experiences when it can tie into your event’s theme.

Recently on a site visit for event space with one of our clients we came across VenueOne in Chicago’s fast growing west loop. What is so great about this meeting and event space is that all of the digital tools that you may need are already incorporated in the space.

Venue One was specifically built to accommodate branding and to promote businesses with ease, as the space immerses the audience into a digital and physical branding experience, from the first keynote until the last break-out session and at every lunch and snack break in-between.

Included in the space are:

  • Plasma screens for branding and messaging throughout the space
  • 3 large video screens for main stage presentations
  • Sound system, speakers and mics
  • Over 150 LED lighting fixtures to customize the look of the space
  • Video walls
  • Video conferencing
  • Wifi

At VenueOne you can see how meeting space can enhance face-to-face communications in a digital world.

Meeting Mix

This newsletter’s playlist focuses on a music genre called Roche music and a young Parisian musician/producer, Vincent Fenton otherwise known as FKJ or French Kiwi Juice. FKJ’s music is the perfect musical cocktail. A little nu-disco, a splash of hip-hop, and an extra dose of funky flair, this is the kind of music that warms your soul from start to finish.
This music is perfect for meeting walk-in, background music or play-ons. It’s a good example of the soul of face-to-face and digital.
Hope you like it.
