TED: Ideas Worth Spreading

Forget the new movie hitting cinemas, TED is about Ideas Worth Spreading. With hundreds of speakers and talks online, and numerous events each year, it is a chance to see some of the leaders in their fields speak about topics that they have a true passion for. TED hosts a number of talks that you can witness online, and rather than sitting down for an hour and listening to one person, why not have 5 different speakers coming up? With most of their talks happening in 18 minutes or less, it is a style of conference speaking that will have your event audience captivated and on the edge of their seat the entire time. Conference and corporate presentations are seeing the beginning of the end, with no more long winded explanations or monotonous tones, these speakers use every minute they have, and give it everything they have got. Their topics are endless so if you think that it is time to bring in a new style of keynote speaking on your next event, contact Kieran Kennedy of Veritas on kieran.kennedy@veritas.com.au

The Art of Packing

It may seem trivial, but like many of us, it can be hard to properly pack a suitcase when travelling to a corporate event or conference. You often need to pack a variety of outfits, from a Gala Dinner suit or dress, business outfits for the plenary, casual gear for your free time and maybe even a costume for the theme dinner. After stumbling upon this website by the Louis Vuitton team, we felt we needed to share it with all of our business partners. The Art of Packing gives you a fun and interactive perspective on how to pack a bag correctly to ensure that all your outfits are ready to go for your next conference. If you are planning an event contact Kieran Kennedy of Veritas on kieran.kennedy@veritas.com.au

A Breakfast Event with Benefits

Veritas attended a fundraising breakfast event hosted by the Merivale team at one of their unique venues. The Gin Garden is located adjacent to the Establishment. It has a maximum capacity to host a cocktail event for 100 guests and the space is ideal for product launches, media launches and more.

The decor lends itself for all types of theming although its elegant and colonial style may be all you need. For meetings and events, the space is subject to availability and there is an applicable minimum food & beverage spend.

Great job to the Pink team at Gin Garden for great food & service! Contact Veritas to help you create an experience at this versatile venue.
