We’ve all been to that kind of corporate event. The kind with boring presentations and stale team-building exercises. The kind held in an uninspired hotel conference rooms where the most memorable part of the whole event was the food (and even that was mind of blah). Corporate events don’t have to be bland, boring affairs and an exciting, invigorating corporate event doesn’t have to break the bank. Just use our simple tips for planning a corporate retreat, company meeting or picnic, or professional conference that your guests will enjoy and remember.
Find the Right Venue for Your Goals
If your goal is to provide a fun get-away for your executive team, then bowling allies, rock climbing facilities, ghost tours, and zip-lining are excellent options and are all the rage right now. However, these venues might not be right if you’re hosting a large group or if you’re hoping to get any serious work, planning, or professional development done.
Rethink Boring Old Team Building Activities
The core concepts of most business-related get-togethers – like teamwork, leadership skills, outside-of-the-box thinking, sensitivity, and strategic planning — don’t tend to change. However, doing the same old tired team building exercises are sure to elicit more than a few eye rolls from bored attendees. Change things up by taking one of these core concepts and retool the exercise to better fit your employees’ interests or your company’s brand.
