EXTENDED MEETOVATION EDUCATION
Become a better meeting advisor and create more business
Meetovation is a meeting concept that ensures value for money when investing in a meeting. Some meetings have a clear value, and the ROI is high. The meeting must be a valuable experience. It must leave an impression on the participants, who will then bring back value from the meeting or conference. “That is the only way for a meeting to have value.”
The Extended Meetovation Education will take the participants from knowledge to action. From knowing what to do to doing what they know. They will help their customers set clear objectives and, not least, implement them.
Participants will be certified as Meetovators and furthermore receive:
- A personal DiSC behavioural profile
- A strengthening of their personal impact
- Tools for creating relations and sales
- An insight into project management
Objective and learning goals
Participants understand and are able to work with Meetovation at all levels; based on this and on their own experience and knowledge they can enhance the customer experience.
Participants will be able to create even better meeting and conference products; this will in the long term result in more customers, more loyalty and therefore more business.
With more confidence and considerable personal impact, participants will be able to sell the Meetovation concept to both customers and in-house.
Participants ensure that all aspects of what the conference venue/agency has to offer are used.
The objective of the Extended Meetovation Education is to enable participants to deliver an even better meeting product and master the content-related elements of Meetovation as described in the manifesto for Meetovation 3.0.
Participants will get their own DiSC behavioural profile and learn how to best communicate with the different types and with more confidence communicate with both customers and colleagues.
DiSC is one the world’s most used and recognized personal profile tools. It is successfully used in both large and small organisations to work in a goal-oriented way with recruitment, management, development, sales, negotiations, collaboration, team development and communication. In short: (practically) everything that concerns professional, human relations.
Furthermore, participants will learn how to link the possibilities that Meetovation gives them with the best possible benefits for their meeting and conference customers. They will be able to give highly qualified advice to customers regarding even more successful events by means of elements from Meetovation.
The education format will be based on the Meetovation principles. Participants will both learn and experience Meetovation. There will be continuous action that will create change and anchoring.

Competence profile for the Meetovation Education
VisitDenmark has in a collaboration with leading organisations and businesses from the Danish meeting market taken steps to future-proof the Danish meeting concept, Meetovation. The project’s purpose is to ensure that Denmark in future holds a strong position too and can overcome the increasing competition in the international meeting industry and keep its current status and credibility. A significant part of maintaining this credibility comes through a clear connection between communication (marketing, branding and storytelling about Meetovation) and customers’, planners’ and participants’ experience with using Danish, certified Meetovation venues. To ensure this connection, an education for Meetovators has been developed with a focus on the following competences and learning goals.
