Answer:

Yes, we send all participants a series of pre-event questions and use the responses to help define the topics to be discussed. There are also opportunities throughout the event to put forward additional topics, or to pick out emergent topics which you would like to discuss.

Question: Tell me more about the 1-2-1 meetings
Answer:

There is no registration fee to join an iVentiv session. In return we ask that where requested you participate in 1-2-1 meetings (25 minutes) with our sponsor companies. There is a short video from iVentiv CEO Russell Butler which helps explain the 1-2-1 meetings here:

In summary, the 1-2-1 meetings take place during the coffee breaks and will not interrupt your event participation. Participants will have a maximum of just 2-3 meetings per day. There is no obligation on you to buy from any of our sponsors and most participants find these meetings friendly and informal, usually shared over a coffee. We have been supported by this model for the past seven years because this model really works. However, if you do have any objections please speak to a member of the iVentiv team.

Question: Why have I not heard of iVentiv before?
Answer:

iVentiv is a niche company, unless you are a Chief Learning (Talent) Officer it is quite likely that you will not have heard about us. We do not actively market ourselves, instead we grow through word of mouth and through direct contact with our specific participant group.
