The Event Makers EP 1 - Introduction
This is the proof of concept episode of The Event Makers - This week Craig and Tarzan talk about their last week, the plan for the podcast and some past favourite events. ***********We are Panoptic events, we have always had education at the core of what we do , and when the pandemic hit we decided to focus even more on the gaining, and sharing of this knowledge. We looked at all of the interesting concepts across the world and started writing blogs and articles on linkedin. We reached out to suppliers in these other countries to keep up with their latest events and innovations. New Social Media apps such as Clubhouse have been great for sharing the knowledge we are collecting, and our podcast is a natural extension of this. We have also extensively shared E-books and learning tools, at the Resources page on the Panoptic Events Website. We want to speak to all sorts of events professionals within the industry, hear some great stories and share them. As much as we want to educate ourselves, we want to educate others. We talk to innovators, the professionals, the trailblazers, the people leading, the fresh faces, overall the event makers. This is The Event Makers Podcast. -
