Constant Change

That everything is undergoing constant change is nothing new, not even for those who think that social media controls everything and everybody. We seem to have a very short memory. That which didn’t exist five years ago could be the biggest thing now, only to be forgotten in five years time due to the changes we didn’t see coming.

Our magazine has steadily progressed during the eight years it has been on the market. Four years ago we began an English version, thus giving us a whole world to cover, a world that finds itself in a state of constant change. Knowledge is constantly renewed and developed.

We are also joining the International Meetings Review Network together with several other magazines. What this will lead to is difficult to say, and that which is common knowledge in a year’s time has probably not even been considered by us yet. But we always leave the door ajar.

Parallel with this we are translating our two most popular books into English: Kick-start Your Work Meeting by facilitators Maria Eliasson and Pia Villför Larsson, and Meeting Psychology by Dr. Hans Gordon. The books are fully in line with the changes brought about by meetings becoming more professional. The starting point in Gordon’s book is that if we don’t know who we are or why we are, how are we able to understand how other people are, and if we don’t know who we are and why we are who we are, how are we able to create good meetings?

The recent Nordic Choice Hotels’ event Next Generation Meetings in Stockholm discussed taste, fragrance, colour and sensation as the basis for experiences. Experiences create meetings from which we take knowledge back to our daily lives, and this is of great significance for where we hold our meetings and how we develop the world. Next Generation Meetings is always present and is undergoing constant change.
