Veronica Fossa speaking on the microphoneI introduced every course to our dinner guests.

Designing and hosting a gathering shouldn’t be so overwhelming that it keeps you up at night.

But sometimes it is.

Do you face any of the following challenges right now?

With lockdowns and events on halt, I don’t know why our conference exists. Shall we resume it or think of a new format? I’m looking for directions.”

“We already have a venue, which I haven’t chosen, but I can’t see its potential. It’s soulless like most meeting rooms and event spaces. Help!”

“I have a few brand-new ideas to engage our offsite team members. But, what if they’ll find my ideas silly?”

“I’ve put together a mood board because I’ve read that’s how you start a project. And it was fun! But I wonder—what do I do with it now?”

(Or any other. That’s not extensive by any means.)

Here’s the good news for you. You don’t need to figure this out all by yourself. 

Imagine feeling more confident with your gathering design choices.

Imagine if you could have an expert eye (and ear) on your gathering design challenge. Someone who could offer practical advice that you could apply immediately. Maybe a little guidance. (After all, you can’t see the picture if you are in the frame, can you?)

Well, now you can.

Is Gathering Tune-Up right for me?

Get answers to your FAQs so that you can make the best decision.

Anyone who’s facing an event challenge and need expert advice quickly. Whether it’s feedback on your gathering’s purpose, an opinion on how to make the most of your not-so-ideal venue, or a second opinion on your incredible ideas to engage your guests, Gathering Tune-Up will give you the confidence (and the answers you need) to make your next event a success.

Previous customers have been business and design conference organizers, leadership team leaders, offsite designers for a fast-growing startup, and food entrepreneurs. Ideally, you are the primary decision-maker responsible for the event.

If you:

  • See the value of 1:1 coaching. 
  • Have a specific challenge that we could tackle in 60 minutes.
  • Need individualized feedback before taking action.
  • Let small decisions keep you stuck rather than dive in, get messy, and do the work.

Then Gathering Tune-Up is perfect for you.

Everything is online—no travel required. All you need is an internet connection.

Anytime you need one-off insights, feedback, or a second opinion on your gathering and business challenges.

Or you can book ongoing monthly sessions to stay on track and keep yourself accountable. (I’ve heard that it works!)

389€. This is no last-minute arrangement. Gathering Tune-Up also includes prep time on my end, using the customer insights and info you send and my research—so by the time we’re face-to-face, I’ll be bursting with ideas on how to tune up your gathering.

Check the calendar for the available dates. Can’t find a time that suits you? Email me. You don’t need to download any software or register. You’ll only need to click the link I’ll send you with the confirmation email.

Gathering Tune-Up is non-refundable. I do everything I can to make your experience outstanding. If you believe you haven’t got any value from our conversation, just say so at the end of the call, and I’ll see what I can do.

Gathering Tune-Up is a one-on-one session. Meaning that only one person can join the call. Ideally, the primary decision-maker responsible for the event. If you’re looking for a team workshop, email me.

If you’re unaware of what you need to know and what’s just a shiny object, all the free information in the world won’t help. 

Also, free advice on the internet is generic​​from someone who knows nothing about your business and goals.

So if you’re on the fence, ask yourself this question: what would benefit your organization most if you could choose between the undivided attention, knowledge, and taste of an expert with ten years of international experience and random advice?

Sure! Let me know if you need one after you’ve booked and paid for your session.

Hi there! I’m Veronica Fossa, your event designer bursting with ideas on how to tune up your gathering.

Designing and hosting a gathering can be overwhelming. How do I know that? Because gatherings have been my bread and butter for the last fifteen years. I’ve hosted supper clubs (even) in embargo Moscow, opened a pop-up restaurant from the boot of a car in the Helsinki Design District, and designed a lunch format to bring good food to the workplace simultaneously in 20 workplaces in 14 countries worldwide. 

In Gathering Tune-up, you bring your biggest gathering challenges. I bring my über-ingenious brain. Doesn’t that sound like a deal?

Event experiences that make a difference.

With MELT Forum, we were determined to provide a different event experience than the typical conference dinner and instead highly curate it—and here Veronica helped us make a difference.
