SEVEN DAYS CREATION IN FIVE
This month we're looking at the conference world, showing how world class corporations can deliver events, big or small, by using our expertise. From concerts to conferences, we deliver on time, every time.
When asked to produce a comprehensive range of themed presentations and supporting material for a conference in seven days — Creative Solution’s response was to produce it in five.
Established for 24 years, Smart Training is a vocational training provider Government-approved to deliver Apprenticeships and Traineeships in a wide range of sectors.
So when, earlier in the year, the organisation hosted its annual conference at Hampton Court on staff development and training, attended by all employees, it was vital that a good impression was made.
We’d worked with Smart Training before, so they knew they could trust us to produce everything they needed, on time and to a high standard.
Their theme revolved around concepts of targeting excellence and team achievement. The centrepiece of the event was a collection of six widescreen videos showing the full range of Smart Training’s message, from the day’s theme to a motivational conference message, including a review of the year, future developments and staff awards.
Smart Training also needed 13 different staff presentations, as well as posters, presentation booklets and 45 award cards. Perhaps more challenging was a schematic to present a new way of working to make it easier to promote and discuss Smart Training's business development.
In the hands of experts
It would be reasonable to expect that all this would need highly specialist software — perhaps even bespoke. In fact, we mainly used the professional versions of software you may all have, making us cross platform and all our work universally accessible to clients — PowerPoint, Adobe Illustrator, Acrobat Pro, Photoshop and Quark Xpress/InDesign.
After all, there’s a good reason why we use standard software. As experts using these tools, we can edit virtually any file you send us, making it a seamless flow from your ideas to the finished production.
Needless to say, it was all hands on deck to get everything ready on time, and the team put maximum effort into it. Creative Solutions isn’t a nine-to-five company, and if we’re up against a tight deadline, we’re willing to work from early morning to late into the night to get it done.
We delivered the complete package with two days to spare.
And the result? Well, according to Lisa Mardell, Communications Director of Smart Training: “Creative Solutions delivered top quality work ahead of schedule, taking some of the stress away from producing a conference at short notice.”
