Author, meeting designer and facilitator at Conferences That Work
Adrian has convened, designed, and facilitated hundreds of meetings over the last forty years. He specializes in participant-driven and participation-rich meetings that become, in real time, what the attendees want and need them to be. Adrian is the author of three books on meeting design, including “Event Crowdsourcing”, to be published this Fall, and runs conferencesthatwork.com, the most popular website covering meeting design and facilitation. He has presented at just about every major meeting industry conference, and develops and leads “Participate!”: interactive workshops for meeting planners and stakeholders to learn how to create truly participative and effective meetings that people love.
Adrian’s mission is to improve our meetings at a core level — what _happens_ at the event — by designing and facilitating a process that creates _connection around appropriate and needed content_ in the sessions not just in the hallways. His books and designs have influenced thousands of meetings and meeting designers worldwide.
