iVentiv was set up in 2008 to provide Learning and Talent executives with an alternative platform to network and engage with peers from a range of industries. Having worked in the learning and development industry for a number of years, Russell Butler iVentiv’s CEO, identified a gap in the existing events market. At a time when budgets for travel were being curtailed and online video platforms were increasingly becoming the platform of choice for one directional learning experiences, iVentiv offered a valid reason for people to still travel to events. Russell was keen to provide senior-level executives with a conference which allowed them to engage in meaningful discussions with their peer group, critically assess good practices and challenge current learning paradigms. With an annual offering of 20+ events across the Globe (including Europe, Americas, Middle East & Asia-Pacific) covering topics including Learning & Development, Talent Management, Executive Development, General Counsel and most recently Procurement. iVentiv is the global leader in the provision of Corporate Executive conferences. Each event has a unique theme or topic, with all events looking to the future rather than taking a retrospective view. As specialists in the area of Learning and Talent, we at iVentiv have evolved our events from the traditional ‘sit and listen’ model of conferencing into something much more interactive and productive - in essence a two-day CXO consultation program. This has resulted in extremely positive feedback (average 92%, over 100+ events) from not only our participants but also our sponsors, who take an active role in all our events. To ensure iVentiv remains as the market leader in the provision of executive events we have the iVentiv Advisory Board. This group of senior executives plays a critical role in the development of agendas, effective programme design and cutting-edge content creation.
