Industry mourns Newtonstrand CEO Shuli Golovinski

“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.
