GreenWell is a state-of-the-art Conference and Coaching Centre located at the foot of the Hohe Wand nature reserve, just outside Austria. It boasts a fabulous location, event rooms, accommodation and technical innovation of a standard, I haven’t seen before. There is also an old Austrian pub and Manor House on site too. In short it’s quite a place. Take a look for yourself www.greenwell.at. It is not a typical Austrian events venue. It’s been designed to stand out from the crowd. Its focus will be on attracting entrepreneurial types from across Europe to its MBA style programmes. In addition to these courses the Greenwell team were keen to offer a range of on-site activities and events. They needed somebody to help them create a programme and then teach them how to deliver it. I got a call.
So how did I help?
Using my events master class as the basis for my visit I flew to Vienna to spent 2 days working alongside the on-site team. The first day was all about me helping the team come up with a list of possible events and activities, evaluating them and then grouping them into packages to make selling them easier. It was an interesting day where I used my 20 years of event management experience to generate ideas and they used their knowledge of Austrian(s) and the European market to come up with programme that would appeal to a local and international audience. The remaining time was spent training them how to design, plan, programme, promote and deliver great events.
Greenwell Conference and Coaching Centre now have a full programme activities and events: literally something for everyone. There are programmes for their students, corporate guests as well as social events designed to attract a more local audience. The on-site team also now have the skills, confidence, a way of working and a sack full of ideas about how to design, plan and deliver high quality events, as befitting one a wonderful venue. I really enjoyed my time at the centre and am looking forward to all about how it’s going. The centre is now fully open and ready to receive paying guests
