Event and network management
SMOOTH, COHERENT AND EFFICIENT COORDINATION,
PLANNING AND RUNNING OF KEY PIECES TO SUCCESS.
In a world that is revolving faster than ever, in a communication based society, event and network management are both key elements to the success of any project for they are the cement of your initiative as well as a window opened for the world to seize your sphere of influence. They should therefore stand out in order to have a long-lasting impact, providing opportunities for sharing ideas and being stimulated, motivated and inspired.
We all know that event and network management requires strong organizational, documentation, budgeting as well as communication and creative skills. Most of all, they are based on mutual trust and cross-communication and high level of commitment. With more than 10 years of working experience within the realm of EU institutions, networks and projects, we have developped some recognised expertise in each step of the process:
1. Understanding needs & expectations
Building relationships is a process that will take time before it produces the desired results, and it is imperative to resist the temptation to speed up this process for the sake of obtaining a quick return.
Our approach and vision is based on win-win collaboration. We believe work relationships are about caring, helping, and supporting and thererefore we value common understanding hence putting high emphasize in establishing some common ground and getting to know each organisation we are working with. Thus, defining together the objectives, pathways and resources to use will be our first preoccupation.
2. Connecting the dots
Extensive knowledge of the worlds of education and employment in sport, ability and will to develop meaningful synergies towards the development of the sector is undoubtedly at the heart of our approach.
In an ultra-connected society, developing network may look easy. Yet the trick is in finding compatible partners willing and able to understand each other but also genuinely interested in learning from each other’s so that they could collaborate together in a multi-cultural context.
Our experience in this field combined with our problem-solving philosophy and our wish to share our knowledge and network to expand the reach and impact of project work and as a means of identifying, disseminating and sharing best practice has allowed EOSE to position as a relevant and trustful networker.
3. Developing meaningful proposal
“Coming together is a beginning; keeping together is a progress; working together is success” said Henry Ford. We believe this is where network and event management connect together. Indeed while there is always phone, email, skype etc to connect people, nothing beats eye-to-eye live connections. Networking is about building and nurturing relationships and in our opinion events are there to help you nurture your network and disseminate your ideas.
Event management is about finding the creative answers responding to your identified goals and resources. We can help you define the end goal of your event, hence finding out about your target and therefore identify the proper style and venue for your event which will also have impact on the event’s guidelines and speakers.
4. Ensuring you get the best of it
Organising an event is an investment for any organisation and we are perfectly aware of it. That’s the reason why we believe any event should be built to set a momentum for the organisation.
Designing, planning and delivering it properly is of course of prime importance. But it is also crucial to exploit it at best. We are convinced this implies interacting on-site, promoting off-site and reporting afterwards. Investing in customise communication is a must since people will remember the time and effort you put in. A little goes a long way.
EOSE can, in this general area, provide such services as :
- Design, planning and delivery of seminars, workshops and professional development events (our experience ranged from kick-off event gathering partners only to international wide-dissemination opened conference);
- Organisation of International Exchanges for experts and learners;
- Creation and animation of networks of key stakeholders to coordinate the contribution of the sector to some consultations (from contact making to network/team building);
- Help you develop a communication and PR strategy.
Get in touch if you are interested and we will make sure to get back to you as soon as possible so that we explore together how we could collaborate.
