An agile approach to event planning

Whatever your role, if you work in the events industry you’re all too familiar with the pressure that comes from constant hard deadlines. But it doesn’t have to be that way; there is a way to better manage your events to reduce the stress.

In this session I’ll share some lessons learnt from agile software development, and talk you through my approach to event planning, which allows you to adapt, innovate and stay flexible.

I’ll show you how you can borrow the principles of agile methodology for event project management, which emphasise collaboration, user feedback and continuous improvement, to ensure that your event is successful and you stay in control.
