Project Overview

This was a large-scale virtual event for IT Consulting company Capgemini, who in previous years had done their annual kickoffs face to face. Albeit a virtual event, the project was held during the UK’s lockdown period in January 2021, meaning large numbers of Covid-19 precautions were required to take place.


Across a 7-day period, 12 ‘Business Units’ had their respective virtual kickoffs (which were entirely separate events), with each needing to be planned so that various Business Units could attend eachothers’ kickoffs – and also planned so the CEO could make an individual keynote speech to Business Unit.


Each Business Unit had their own individual bespoke requirements, such as; Agenda, Content, Attendees/Registration, Speakers, Entertainment, Production and Gifting – which were tailored for each Business Unit.

Across the UK, Europe and USA we built studios; some with green screens and others with printed backdrops. Each of these studios broadcasted to our master control studio in either Surrey (UK), Birmingham (UK) or Phoenix (Arizona) – which was then mixed to create a final broadcast feed to the Client’s Platform.

I brought together a large number of my regular colleagues and suppliers, to form a key team – engaging my regular contacts across the UK, Europe and USA.

I also handled the commercials of the project; overseeing budget management, commercial strategy and full reconciliation.
