The Association of Project Management was a private event for 70 corporate members
to improve their understanding of how they could help each other and how the APM
could help them. Most of the day was spent in network and breakout sessions. Click

Again the bulk of the material was available to the attendees two days after the event.
"A few weeks ago Andrew helped me deliver what the client said was one of the most
enjoyable and valuable 1 day forums they had ran. Andrew captured the day not only
in terms of creating mind maps for many of the sessions but also through coordinating
associates who took photographs and video interviews. The web based record of the
event was there 2 days later - an excellent piece of work. So far all I have mentioned
is what he did. It is how he did it that was even more impressive - professionally but
with humour and lightness. Oh, and I may have forgotten something even more
important - an incredibly helpful and above all nice guy. I am now actively seeking
other ways of involving Andrew in what we do."
The members of LinkedIn were asked the following question:

"In my experience usually there is no follow up after an event."
"A very common problem is that ideas and tasks are discussed, but finally nobody owns
(or it's not clear who owns) the responsibility of carrying them out."
"The outcomes must be clearly summarised and be available at the end of the meeting."
"Set up a blog where all the unanswered questions can be answered by the speakers."
"Action and accountability. There is usually neither after a corporate meeting."
All our (and anything the event wishes to include) material is collated and published on
the web or intranet during the day and polished off over the following days. This allows
those that were there to "see and hear" what they could not see. It also allows those
people that were not in the room to get a flavour for the event and know who to ask
for more information. The web site could contain forums which continue discussion
when the event closes.
We can also facilitate and project our mind maps to assist discussions if required.
No post its, no flip charts, no long waits for the conference proceedings to be
published. A searchable web site, parts of which can be published as PDFs for those
who want that sort of record.
