Closing out 2021 with a new class of Event-Works super-users

2021 EW Training ends on a “super” note

Last week Wiz-Team headed to the USA to deliver one final training series to a group of rookie Event-Works super-users for one of our newest sport partners.  This large trainee class of 13 was made up of a cross-section of the organisation’s event management professionals from hospitality, major events, sport, technology, and sponsorship.  Their functional expertise were as diverse as their departments with experiences in managing accommodation, accreditation, sport entries, data analytics, rate card, guest management, transportation, air travel, and much more. 

What are super-users? Outside of being super humans, they are the key to success in terms of new technology implementation and user adoption at any organisation.  They are the champions of change, the translators of business challenges, and the builders of organisational trust.  Without them, initiating digital transformation in an organisation might be as challenging as climbing Mt. Everest.

For Wiz-Team, these users are priority #1 when it comes to new client or project onboarding. Super-user training dives deep into the fundamentals and foundations of Event-Works with the following outcomes at its core : 

Context: Establishing a conceptual understanding of how Event-Works was built to tackle the data challenges of event management;

Capabilities: Building up core competency in navigating, designing, and configuring the Event-Works tool box to meet individual needs;

Confidence: Cultivating a sense of autonomy and achievement through hands-on challenges and games;

Curiosity: Creating space and opportunity for questions and creativity; curiosity (we believe) is a cornerstone to motivation and ongoing development;  

Connection: Developing trust, understanding, and empathy through shared experience, humour, and partnership.

It has been an extremely busy and exciting year meeting new people, training new users, and implementing Event-Works across the world.   Though we will take a moment to reflect with gratitude on what 2021 brought to all of us, we are very excited for the year ahead.  We look forward to working alongside both the newest members of the Event-Works super-user squad AND our existing Wiz-Team ambassadors as we look to challenge and change the events industry through innovative technology…together.

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.
