What does an event tech company know about World Values Day?

On October 19th, as part of World Values Day, Crystal’s Chris Elmitt will be facilitating a session with colleagues and peers to discuss how we can “bridge the values gap”. The aim of the session is to answer a question that many organisations face: how can we behave in everyday business in a way that is consistent with our vision and values?

We only need to look at the recent Bell Pottinger saga to be reminded of how actions on the ground can differ catastrophically from aspirations in the boardroom. The need to bridge the gap has never been more apparent.

The question is why would an event technology company be involved in World Values Day?

1: Our own values journey

Firstly, following the acquisition by Crystal Interactive of the UK arm of Lumi earlier this year, we have been on a journey internally to define the values for our newly merged organisation alongside a review of our brand (more on that very soon). Our involvement in World Values Day is a fantastic opportunity to get inspiration from values practitioners and hear real life examples of what we should do to define and then live by our values. We are excited to be involved.

2: Shaping the agenda and content for large events

Secondly, the inspirational team behind World Values Day, like many of our clients, has the desire and need to run collaborative events that seek to engage large audiences in a meaningful, inclusive and impactful way. To deliver on this complex brief effectively, the agenda and content needs careful preparation and management, and few people have our expertise in this area.

3: Capturing all ideas and maximising outcomes

Thirdly, as the goal of the event is to generate practical and implementable solutions to the values gap challenge, capturing, making sense of and prioritising all the best ideas from the 100 people attending is key.  Our technology is the perfect tool for harnessing the insights of the group.

Want to join in? Please visit the World Values Day website for further information.  We look forward to seeing you there.

I was listening to the radio on the way into work the other morning and there was a discussion on the release or rather re-release of the classic Nokia 3310 mobile phone. There is a very valid question of why in this world of lightning fast connections and social...
