A Curated Event for Change

background

BridgingTheGap™ Forums is an initiative of Lovell Corporation–a global consultancy and innovation firm that empowers communities to foster sustainable development and create pathways for emerging talent to prepare for the future of work .

Our talent development strategy focuses on individual growth, multi-sector collaboration and Millennial engagement to bridge opportunity gaps between generations and underrepresented groups with an emphasis on youth and women.

The opportunity

Your branded BridgingTheGap forum will educate, empower and equip emerging talent and future innovators with the tools and mentorship they need to build a successful career.

With proven results, we’ll provide quality leadership interaction and branded content opportunities tailored to your needs–including specially curated programming development, hand picked speaker rosters and attendee recruitment.

Forum Themes

Young Talent

Employers struggle to find and keep qualified young talent—one in five young workers globally are not employed, in education or training. This forum track focuses on what is needed to overcome skills gap and ensure both employers and young workers are prepared to thrive in the future of work.

Inclusive Innovation

There is a need to change the face of innovation and provide equal access to resources and opportunity. With improved education—particularly in the area of entrepreneurship experience—emerging leaders are equipped to generate a viable income, and also stimulate local economic growth and job creation. This forum track focuses on connecting emerging entrepreneurs from underrepresented groups–such as youth, women and girls, and other visible minorities–with executive mentors and investment to scale their ventures.

Sustainable Solutions

Change does not happen in isolation, but more often then not, stakeholders—business, government and community–work in silos. Employers, brands, governments, educators and nonprofits each have a role in addressing community challenges, and all can benefit from the active engagement of today’s young minds and future innovators. Turning passion into purpose, this forum track fosters multi-sector collaboration–connecting all stakeholders of a community with emerging leaders in working groups–to co-create solutions for a local cause.

Why Host a Forum

“Build it and they will come” many say–if only this was true for events! Despite the effort put into planning and crafting the perfect event experience, the true success of an event lies in the quality of the speakers and attendees, and yet rarely is there a specialized service that can guarantee these outcomes.
Sure you can enlist a speaker’s bureau, talent agency or event marketing firm to help, but these service providers still can’t guarantee filled seats with an actionable attendee audience aligned with your goals.

Lovell’s BridgingTheGap forums create tailored event activations–bringing all the right stakeholders and influencer voices together–to engage your target audience and drive measurable results.
