“It is with the utmost regret and sadness that Newtonstrand has to announce the unexpected and tragic death of its Founder and CEO, Meshulam (Shuli) Golovinski, who died on 13 September 2013,” a press release from the technology company said.
Shuli, 38, leaves five children and was buried in his home country, Israel, on 15 September.
With a Microsoft background and twice winner of the Bill Gates Innovation Award, Golovinski was a leading innovator in both Newtonstrand and the meetings industry and a respected keynote speaker worldwide.
He had released three industry books about how meetings and events are changing: From Gimmicks to Value – The Future of the Events Industry, followed by Event 3.0 – How Generation Y and Z are re-shaping the events industry and more recently his book on Events in 2020 – How do the industry movers and shakers envision them? He was due to release his next book later this year Monetization: The slow death of sponsorships as we know them.
Newtonstrand’s headquarters is based in London with offices and resellers worldwide.
