From Handshakes To Headsets: the opportunities and challenges of online events

Companies have been looking into ways of successfully digitalising their events for years and the year 2020 has finally urged everyone to find some tangible answers. The need for more global conversations and virtual events has been more important than ever in the past few months and technology has been the obvious enabler. But with participants’ expectations growing and their attention spans ever-shortening, virtual event management often becomes a struggle. 

  • What are the main challenges faced when managing online events?
  • How can companies create a sense of togetherness in a virtual setting?
  • What will the future of the events landscape look like?

Founder & Managing Partner, The Ortus Club

Sam is driven by his passion for business development. His objective is two-fold: bringing together senior executives to discuss relevant topics in their respective industries and helping them build long-term relationships with one another.

After completing his Master of Engineering Science at Oxford University where he was honoured with an Oxford Half Blue for Rugby Fives, Samuel worked various years for both BP and Focus Reports in London. He then founded in 2015, The Ortus Club, a general-knowledge sharing company that provides online and physical intimate forums in which executives can come together, share knowledge and exchange ideas. Since their establishment, they have hosted more than 200 discussions in various locations in the United States, Europe, Australia, and South East Asia.
