“At the Ministry of Economic Development of Curaçao, we had already become aware of how effective virtual events could be for island nations which attracted us to become sponsors of the first Virtual Island Summit in 2019, and during the summit some of our team members also gave presentations. When James announced that he would be running a course on how to create a successful virtual event in two months, we immediately saw the value of signing up, as we had been very impressed with the work that James and the Island Innovation team had done in setting up and running the Virtual Island Summit. Our team learned some valuable skills, knowledge and insider tips from James during the course that have allowed us to deliver our own successful events. We then decided to sponsor the Virtual Island Summit 2020 and are looking forward to the next one. If you are looking for coaching on how to successfully create a virtual event then you should definitely contact James and his team!”
This occasional newsletter highlights events and stories about innovation in sustainable development for rural, remote and island regions. We want to change the discourse to demonstrate how islandness can be a driver for innovation.
