Organisation Reset

A gross understatement is that COVID-19 has impacted the business events industry in ways not previously imagined. With the business events and tourism world fundamentally changed for the foreseeable future, the members of our ecosystem – buyers/sellers; destinations/associations; hosts/guests need to assess, strategize and implement the right response post-COVID. 

RESET seeks to determine adjustments that are necessary to be effective with decreased resources, impacted strategies, and disrupted systems when market demand begins to recover post-COVID. Organizations manage and control three levers to deliver on their vision and drive results. RESET considers accountability and roles, organization strategy and resources to generate actionable recommendations.

Association Assessment

Associations today are operating in a complex and disruptive environment. Succeeding as an association requires innovation, transformation and leadership. GainingEdge is developing an assessment tool for associations to examine performance based on a balance between effectiveness, relevance, efficiency, and financial viability. 

Assessments will be conducted by a combination of self-assessment by the association and relevant stakeholders, augmented by expert advice including actionable recommendations.  

The Association Assessment service will be available September 2020.
