BNI (Business Network International) Vermont's purpose is to help businesses, large and small, grow their business and make more money. BNI is the world's largest business networking and referral organization and has a uniqur culture built upon the philosophy of Givers Gain®. The Awards Banquet is an annual event that celebrates the achievements of BNI Chapters and members. Usually in person, this event was presented online for the first time in 2020.
We managed every element of the the banquet, bringing this in-person event to an online platform with the intention to preserve all of the things that make it so successful - audience participation, networking, energy and fun! Our behind the scenes work included following up with award winners, running an online silent auction using 32auctions.com, working out the technical aspects of the presentation and assisting with other details. Then on the day of the event we administered breakout rooms, highlighting speakers and award winners and simulated Photobooth sessions using Zoom.
