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.

“A great book from a great professional! I can highly recommend reading it, especially if you are new to our industry. The focus on newcomers of our industry is because I believe this is the group that will appreciate the level of detail in the book the most.”

Gorazd – the neverending and passionated event and live communication evangelist has shown and summarized the future superpowers of the event industry not just for the „New Europe“. It is a powerful reading with billions of events industry insights. Thank you and congratulations for creating the brand new way „power to the meetings“.
The event is dead, long live the event!“

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. He is the founder and CEO of Toleranca Marketing agency and the Editor in Chief of Kongres Magazine.

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.

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. And he does so with great verve. This book is a testimony to what all of us in marketing and communications know: There is nothing more powerful, more effective, more full of wow and fun than events. ”Power to the meetings” shows their great potential and how to unleash it.”

“Power to the meetings – how to organise meetings that rock” is the book’s title, and it is easy to start dancing while and after reading this book. The book puts the participant in focus – all the time! That is maybe the core thing in the book, which is not any book. It really helps you all the way in the WHY, HOW and WHAT in organising meetings – live, hybrid and digital. The knowledge and experience Gorazd Čad shares is solid. It is based on reality, interviews, surveys, cases and based on real-life! Even if the book is not an academic one but written for professionals, I will, for sure, use this book as my first reference literature for the students at Modul Private University in Vienna when I once again teach Event Management this autumn. The book I missed is finally here.”
