Virtual and Hybrid events should NOT be watered down versions of live events.

Use technology to provide innovative experiences to provide member value even when they can’t participate in person. Virtual Participant Engagement expert Eliz Greene has a plan for that!​

For six years Eliz Greene has worked with event professionals to create highly-engaging virtual and hybrid events. 

With an eye for creating an educational thread that pulls through the event, she treats each event like a television program with productions meetings with presenters and careful planning in concert with association staff to create community and member value.

National Speakers Association

Case Study

Recently National Speakers Association turned to Eliz Greene and her virtual emcee partner Thom Singer when they needed to reinvent their annual conference.  Eliz and Thom interviewed CEO Mary Lue Peck on their Webinar Talk Show.

Highlights include:

  • Conferences have needed to change for some time and now is the perfect opportunity to reinvent.
  • Event professionals should try not to make decisions out of fear and consider what members need now and in the future.
  • NSA is starting their annual conference THREE MONTHS EARLY with virtual interview-style sessions twice per week with Eliz and Thom filling the critical roles of emcee.
  • The “virtual ticket” to Influence has been very successful in the first weeks.

Watch National Speakers Association CEO Mary Lue Peck’s interview about their innovative plan for Influence 2020 and beyond.

When we decided to move the 10th anniversary of our Midwest Women’s Sailing Conference to a virtual instead of live event, I couldn’t have asked for a better transition partner than Eliz. She helped us reimagine the event, and then provided the know-how and the creativity to help make our new dream come true. The Mini-Conference was a fantastic success and I credit a large part of that to Eliz’s expertise and commitment.

Eliz Greene Leadership Keynote Speaker

In 2014 the National Speakers Association needed an emcee to engage the virtual audience of the live-streamed annual convention and turned to Eliz Greene.

In the years since, Eliz harnessed her skills as a speaker, spokesperson, teacher, and interviewer to develop a system to produce high-quality engaging virtual experiences including medical conferences and industry events such as SPINCon, a conference for senior event professionals.

With her co-host, Thom Singer, she developed a talk show style format to deliver content and interact with the virtual audience. This format grew into the Conference Talk Show which focused on hybrid events.

For fully virtual events, Thom and Eliz use Zoom to deliver the same quality programs and interaction. They work with event organizers to produce events with an educational thread throughout that is consistent with the organization’s brand and honors sponsors or donors.

Watch the interview with SPINCon founder Shawna Suckow about the importance of a hybrid strategy.

A virtual emcee or hybrid emcee is critical. A team providing the energy of a talk show… even better!

Don't mourn the loss of your annual conference!
