Maximize the return on investment at your next company event.
The value of face-to-face gatherings has been reinforced over recent years. Building connections, deepening relationships, and understanding strategy are just some of the benefits of well-designed events. But how do we maximize the chances of all participants seeing the value in attending a large meeting or company conference?
Three tips on helping to keep people engaged at your next event.
- Avoid leaning too heavily on the approach that you would enjoy yourself. Some participants will benefit from visual aids, others will rely on listening to what is said, while some will prefer discussing concepts with their peers. Interactivity is crucial but it doesn’t always have to be verbal.
- Back up abstract theories with real-life examples. Spend time discussing small details as well as outlining large-scale ideas.
- Include sessions in the agenda that are both fun and useful. The two are not mutually exclusive.
You can’t always cater for everyone, but you can better engage your audience by allowing for different approaches to learning. If nothing else, your varied approach will keep people energized and alert!
