Manuel Champalimaud Group is a Portuguese conglomerate which has invested in sustainable and diverse structures within Portugal, with particular interest in the sectors of Energy, Food Logistics, Moulding and Plastics, Tourism and Leisure and Agro-industry.

It had to inspire, connect people, and create a sense of togetherness. It was to be a special occasion where leaders and a guest speakers shared inspiring stories, celebrated achievements, and talked about future challenges. Overall, it needed to convey a simple but strong message: OVERCOMING.

/ Type

Digital Event


Bring together six companies, operating in different market sectors, reinforcing the foundations of the Group but showing the future direction by sharing meaningful insights and articulating the values of Manuel Champalimaud Group.

But more than a social get-together, this e-reunion had to deliver meaningful content. It had to help every OPMer understand how to sail the unknown waters of this new business world. To be better leaders and know which vital decisions to make the right and succeed.

This was going to be a first, using technology bringing the event to the individual and not taking the individual to a live event. One thing that could not be lost was the feeling of closeness and belonging.

Finally, the experience had to enable everyone to have a deep understanding of all the possibilities for personal and professional growth, the capacity of OVERCOMING in individuals.


VOQIN’ created a two-hour virtual event using key visuals to convey core values of Tradition, Ethics, Soundness and Excellence. An inspirational video which reflected these values and connected all six companies. A keynote speaker gave substance to the theme of OVERCOMING.

The entire event was staged on VOQIN’s digital platform – EMEX which created the “live experience”.

A pre-event communications programme which included “highlights” reports boosted engagement and set the scene.


168 attendees generated more than 5,700 reactions in 2 hours, a measurement that will be used to build on future events as the company looks strengthen the resilience of its people and business.
