Vision & Method

We believe that there is no such thing as a meeting… anymore. Why? Because a meeting is no longer a group of people sitting in a room. There is a secondary and tertiary audience. The secondary audience includes those that participate virtually via the Internet. The tertiary audience receives the message after the event via archived video and/or social media. Only those companies that have made the shift to this new perspective – including online and peripheral devices –can hold the modern business meeting.


Today, a meeting that delivers ROI is a multi-dimensional event that spans a physical venue to a webcast, peripheral devices, archives and a viral audience on Twitter, Facebook and YouTube. At Summit Management Services, our team will work with you to determine the right meeting combination for your next Investigator meeting, product launch, sales or incentive meeting, manager meeting, sales training, trade show exhibit, retreat or other special event. Summit's revolutionary conference-planning software will help you monitor and track the details related to the event. Our ONCORR solution delivers rapid ROI and provides secure, around-the-clock access from any Internet connection worldwide.

Our decades of experience has taught us that although there are hundreds of moving parts involved in creating a flawless meeting, unless the message, presenter, and presentation moves the people, the meeting is a costly bore. Our Automated Response System (ARS) helps you determine whether the audience understands and retains the information. It is an invaluable tool to confirm if the message of the meeting is resonating with the attendees while on site.

Once the event is over, Summit can convert the message into a secure web-broadcast or USB drive based presentation. Through archiving this material, digital learning can extend the benefits of traditional meetings to those unable to attend – or to those joining a protocol long after the initial meeting has been held.
