A Winter Solstice Breakfast
Energy & Light
Engage: The Client

Enrich: The Brief
Create and deliver the first of three events on one day which would raise awareness of emotional wellbeing amongst the business community across the Island of Ireland. The events were to take place on the shortest day of the year with the breakfast session in Belfast, the lunch event in Dublin and the evening gathering in Galway.
Elevate: The Outcome
Given the event content, date and supporting organisations, Podiem proposed ‘Energy and Light’ as the theme. As the event was about bringing light on the darkest day of the year we choose The Bridge Suite on the 6th floor of Titanic Belfast as this venue would allow delegates to watch dawn break over Belfast Lough during the course of the morning. The event featured two world-renowned thought leaders as well as one of Ulster’s most talented singers. The event was oversubscribed, mass media coverage was secured across the island and valuable funds were raised for a local mental health charity. The invited business audience was individually and collectively effusive in its praise for the event.
I have never attended a ‘business’ event like this – it is the best that I have been to. What a way to start to the shortest day of the year. The 900 months concept will stick with me! I came out feeling serene yet motivated. This event totally worked!
