POWER TO THE MEETINGS
HOW TO ORGANISE MEETINGS THAT ROCK
Events are a powerful visual, expressive and content tool. More importantly, they are an effective communication tool. Every event organiser will leave their mark and signature on their event, and the more freedom we have, the stronger our stamp.
The “Power to the Meetings” book is a treasure trove of knowledge about everything to do with events and a must-read for anybody in marketing and communications. What is more, the enthusiasm and passion that pervades this book make it a fun and interesting read. Gorazd Čad not only covers the basics, drawing on the most recent research but also shows which changes and trends will shape the industry and to what effect.

Who is Gorazd Čad?
Gorazd Čad is a seasoned meeting planner who has dedicated 25 years of his life to the meetings and event industry. He has witnessed the fall of Yugoslavia, the establishment of independent Slovenia, adapted to the internet revolution of the ’90s, overcome the economic crisis of 2008, the 2010 eruption of an Icelandic volcano, the 2019 meetings industry burnout, 2020s corona crisis and more.

Gorazd Čad often compares the meetings industry to rock’n’roll. To him, rock’n’roll is much more than just a music genre. It’s passion, dedication and striving to be different. It’s showing the best of what you’ve got with all your heart and voice at the right moment. It’s impressing your audience and leaving an impression. It’s establishing an authentic connection with every participant and listening to their wishes. It’s making sure that attendees become your fans. The secret and essence of rock’n’roll is a good idea. The best ideas are simple, clear and unambiguous. Those that speak to the heart and soul. Just like music, events are a universal language that everyone understands. The idea of rock’n’roll is closely connected to the idea of freedom. Rock’n’roll is a way of life.
WHY A BOOK ON EVENT ORGANISING
The first time I heard that I should write a book on event organising was around a decade ago. At that time, it felt too early and too soon. We were in the middle of developing grand events. Among them, the awarded and recognised Conventa drained the most energy. Despite being delighted to receive compliments and awards, I have concluded that I no longer need them. What matters most is the joy when organising events and creating authentic experiences and the child-like enthusiasm that comes from seeing happy and satisfied participants. That is the ultimate goal of every event organiser.
