This week’s #EventIcons continues on the topic of event design. Last Wednesday we dove into design thinking and its impact on events. And to take it a step further, we’re introducing the #EventCanvas methodology. As everyone knows, designing an event is stressful and time-consuming. This is exactly the part where having processes in place can make a world of a difference. However, putting the machine to work can be hard if you have no idea where to start.

New call-to-action

That’s how this week’s #EventIcons will help. Joining our hosts Will Curran, Alex Plaxen, and Tahira Endean is Ruud Janssen. Ruud is a Switzerland-based entrepreneur, who has been an innovator and game-changer in the Hospitality and Meetings & Events Industry since 1994. He is the founder of the Event Design Collective GmbH (the event design consulting & training firm), along with Roel Frissen, aimed at creating a common language for Meetings & Events.

Their #EventCanvas has the potential to completely revolutionize the way we look at designing events. Join our hosts and their guest for a very special episode, and learn how you can elevate your designing experience.
