wiz-editor January 21, 2021 0

It has been one year since a record of over 1,800 athletes from 79 countries gathered in Lausanne (Switzerland) for the third edition of the Winter Youth Olympic Games (YOG). Wiz-Team is proud to have contributed to the smooth operations of the organisers. Its event management solution “Event-Works” was used to conduct the registration of, and data collection from, 4000 volunteers who, during the Games, were deployed across five sports clusters and other important locations such as the athletes’ villages, the airport and train stations.

Wiz-Team’s software provided a new, user-friendly sign-up process and enabled the efficient collection of key information from this important stakeholder group who help make the Games a reality. The data collected included details for accreditation, uniform sizes, validation of shift assignments and uniform pick-up dates. Conditional tabs were also used to collect only the necessary information, like parental consent forms for minors.

JOHANN

CEO

As the founder and CEO of Wiz-Team, Johann has been a part of this adventure long before the start of the organisation 10 years ago. This dynamic and fast-growing company was born out of gap in the market Johann and his colleagues experienced as event managers in the early 2000s.  With little tools available to effectively manage the demands and challenges of data management for complex events, they decided to build their own solution. 

Shortly thereafter Johann created Event-Works and later Wiz-Team with the vision to deliver world class digital solutions built by event professionals for event professionals. From Wiz-Team headquarters in his hometown Lausanne, he oversees a global network of developers and experts, who support the organisations mission to empower event professionals through smart, intuitive, and innovative digital solutions. 

Johann’s expertise in event data management is outstanding.  He has delivered innovative event management solutions to every Olympic Games edition since 2004 alongside a range of other international events. Having worked across many sectors, including sports federations, the medical congress industry, corporate companies, and government agencies, he has acquired a wide-ranging background and an exceptional experience in various types and sizes of events. Before he set up Wiz-Team, Johann specialised in web and database development, as well as project management in the luxury industry, and teaching.

Johann holds an MBA in international management and speaks English, French and some German. In his spare time, he enjoys scuba diving, discovering the world on a motorbike, gaming and exploring new technologies.
