Planning a meeting can be a daunting task, so choosing the right venue is key. Here are some questions to ask when planning your next off-site meeting:
Does location matter?
Holding your meeting close to the office may seem easier, but having employees go a little further discourages them from darting back to the office in between sessions, allows staff to feel like they’ve been treated to a getaway, and tends to keep staff more focused on your message.
What’s the right mood?
Search out a venue that has bright, spacious meeting rooms to keep people’s attention. Tasty snacks/meals and the availability of fitness breaks will also help keep the blood flowing and the energy high.
What else can we do?
Choose a venue that has something your team can do while they are not in meetings. A pool, spa, golf, fitness or team-building activities are just some examples of things that can help make a meeting memorable to staff, and ran effective tool for management.
