Varysian empowers development organisations to better reach internal and external audiences with a comprehensive virtual event curation and management service.

From small roundtable gatherings and training modules to 2000+ delegate conferences and virtual campuses, we are able to take your message and turn it into an engaging and successful experience for donors, staff and key stakeholders.

We have deep roots in the development space. This experience stems from our close consulting relationship with the directors of National Meteorological and Hydrological Services (NMHS). Working with this group, intrinsically involved in the battle against climate change, has developed our model from pure advice, to the stewardship of a digital network of NMHS with a multitude of events and educational opportunities.

Our expertise in hydromet has led to a consulting relationship with the World Bank and latterly to a model of event provision that has created the perfect platform for community building and bespoke gatherings, now utilised by the likes of SPREP and the CMO.

All of our partnerships have stemmed from referrals and a reputation for quality and integrity.

Varysian’s approach is based on the differences and unique needs of each client.

 

Our expert team - with backgrounds in government relations, marketing, events and digital networks - respond to your needs with a bespoke solution, rather than a standardised ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach.

Direct messaging within events has created 750,000 new connections

In 2019 we created a high level ‘real-world’ event for the Caribbean Meteorological Organisation and the hydromet directors of 16 CMO member states. Utilising our full menu of services we ran an end-to-end event that has recently been used as a case study in good practice at a UN conference (World Meteorological Organisation Data Conference, November 2020). In 2020 we transitioned the same event to a virtual gathering with the same focus on engaging senior personnel.

Assisting SPREP deal with the fallout from COVID, we swiftly created a virtual model for the organisation’s annual Nature Conservation and Protected Areas Conference. We replicated their real world model, retaining the atmosphere and diversity of content, while achieving a record breaking audience of over 1,800 delegates, including Heads of State.
