Award-winning keynote speaker James Taylor and his team have been creating online and virtual conferences and summits for their clients since 2016. Over 40,000 people have now attended one of our online events. James and his team can provide the speakers, the MC’s and the panellists. We can even run all of the technology for you, 100% online. Let us help you take your next conference, meeting, event or summit online.
For the past four years keynote speaker James Taylor, whose clients include IBM, Visa, McDonalds, Sony, Apple and Meeting Professionals International, has been creating and hosting online conferences and summits. His initial reason for doing so was to reduce his own environmental impact (James would often travel over 400,000km per year). This is not sustainable. There is a smarter way.
In 2016 James launched the first of twenty five online conferences and summits for himself and his clients. The smallest online event was for 200 people while the largest attracted over 22,000 people from 80 countries. These were 100% online events. His team put together the technology, processes and procedures for making the whole thing turnkey.
In each of these online conferences or summits James would give one of the keynotes as well as acting as MC or host for the event. In addition to his own keynotes he has interviewed over 250 other speakers, experts and executives for these online events.
Then in 2020, with the arrival of COVID-19 (coronavirus), James was approached by a number of his clients and bureau partners to help as more and more conferences, meetings, events and travel were being cancelled or postponed. As a result James and his team decided to offer Online Conferencing to not just his Fortune 500 clients but to a wider range of companies and associations.
Led by James Taylor, award-winning keynote speaker on business creativity, innovation and artificial intelligence, Future Summits™ organises online conferences, summits, and events of any size. Our team offer a turnkey solution for corporate clients, industry associations, governments, event companies, agencies, speaker bureaus, and thought leaders. We are able to put together the whole online event for you, or if you prefer we can take your existing event and convert it to an online format. We can even ‘evergreen’ your conference or summit for you so that it runs 365 days a year, 24/7.
We are also partnered with some of the world’s top speaker bureaus so we can help you find speakers for your online event. Together with James Taylor, your guest speakers, internal speakers and executives, we can create an immersive online experience for your attendees. If you choose to have James Taylor as your event host or MC, in addition to him being one of your keynote speakers, he can moderate all of the sessions, introduce the guests and run the whole thing online.
Live online conference or summits are customised for each client based on your event theme or topic and can be for 50 to 2000 live attendees. The length of the event can be up to 8 hours, and most sessions are scheduled for 60-90 minutes. All sessions can be recorded live and we can also insert pre-recorded content such as promotional, highlights and sponsor videos. James Taylor would present a keynote and also act as online host and MC for the event.
All speakers and executives would pre-record their presentations. The session format can be traditional keynote style, Q&A, fireside chat or panel discussion. The pre-recorded sessions would then be distributed to either make it feel like they are live (called ‘as live’), via a private micro-site or the clients LMS or intranet. James Taylor would present a keynote and also act as online host and MC for the event.
In addition to the live online conference or summit all of the recordings would then be turned into an ‘evergreen’ summit. Evergreen summits are available for anyone to register at any time, day or night. For the registrant it feels like a live event. This is a good option if you are an association that is looking for your events to be revenue generating.
