"The knowledge we gained allowed us to completely transform our small event production firm into a virtual event production studio. It saved our jobs, kept our company going, and helped our clients raise significant funds and tell essential stories. Thank you for turning 2020 into a success to celebrate!"

Amanda, CMP, Liz Page Associates

“I literally put everything I’ve learned about virtual events to immediate use. My company cancelled all of our global live events and pivoted our entire event portfolio to a series of 7 monthly virtual experiences through December.”

Michelle B, Project Management Institute

“My experience has been truly transformational for me. The course content, live sessions, and community forum not only provided a wealth of virtual event information, but newfound connections with industry leaders and professionals that I will continue to treasure.”

Jeff S, CMP, Preferred Events

“ELI stepped in quickly with a valuable course. Not only did I learn ways to pivot from live to virtual, but I was also given direction in my career at a time when I felt powerless. I am now armed with skills and information to move forward.”

Carri F, A Closer Look Events!

“I took the Pandemic On-Site Protocol given by the Event Leadership institute. Really every event professional in my opinion should take Pandemic On-Site Protocol Training (planner, vendor, suppliers) as we have a Duty of Care to our attendees and our industry to know what we need to do moving forward.”

Joanna W., Anaplan

“What an eye-opening course into all the safety measures that need to be put in place at events in a COVID world. Thank you to the Event Leadership Institute for putting this course together. I am very happy to have completed it, though I have to admit, I am feeling overwhelmed by the added layer of risk and security that is falling on the shoulders of planners.”

Gabrielle W., Kinaxis

“A huge thank you to Kevin White and the Event Leadership Institute for leading an incredible course focused on pandemic on-site protocols during COVID-19. I learned great takeaways to help influence the planning and management of our on-campus events and programs.”

Matthew R., Questrom School of Business at Boston University

“Thank you to the Event Leadership Institute for creating and offering this highly informative course that can truly be applied to all industries. I am excited to be better prepared for on-site experiences as our economy begins to re-open.”

Samantha S., Luna Soiree Events

“This was a great course and a true eye-opener to how to apply our due diligence in preparing for live meetings. The segment about Growth Mindset and Design Format really stood out, really put things together for me. As meeting planners, we’re so focused on logistics and going through the motions. I felt these two parts teach us now to mentally prepare for and approach the new models of event planning we need to build.”

Kelly J

“I can’t speak highly enough about the course. I now have a solid grasp on the tools required to help any organization or company execute successful virtual or hybrid events. In this day and age when events have pivoted online, there is definitely a right and wrong way to execute.”

Michelle S, Crystal Equation Corporation @ Facebook

“This course gave me what I need to help my organization dive into virtual events. It was paced perfectly–short segments, with just enough information to keep the content digestible. I highly recommend investing in this course to get you started in virtual events!”

Kristen G, NIRSA: Leaders In Collegiate Recreation

“At a critical time where most days we are drinking from a fire hose, this course sets the stage and gives the skills and confidence to structure and deliver a virtual event.”

Amber W, OSU Faculty Club

“This was a great program and opportunity to begin turning the page to a new world for the event industry. Thank you for all the new learnings I am able to take back to the field and begin executing!”

“Last week I took the Pandemic On-Site Protocol course given by the Event Leadership institute. This is a course I feel all of my event professional friends should take. We all have a Duty of Care to our clients, attendees and the industry. The information provides what we need to know and do moving forward. Let's all do our part to get back to business IN REAL LIFE. Thank you to Event Leadership Institute for all your doing to educate the members of our industry.”
