1. Choose an inspiring space
You only have a limited time to engage your delegates. Get a head start by planning your event in a creative environment.
2. Make it easy for people to get to, while taking them out of the office
Getting your staff or clients away from their usual environment is a key factor in ensuring they are engaged from the start. Make sure they are “disconnected” from their everyday, to fully engage in your presentation or workshop.
3. Functionality is key!
Ensure the venue you’ve chosen is functional and has all of the equipment needed – no point in wasting time playing around with substandard AV.
4. Provide adequate sustenance
Whilst a delegate needs to feel energised and refreshed to focus, you can have fun with your catering without blowing the budget. At Ovolo Woolloomooloo we stock a bottomless Banana and Nut Bar … Go Nuts, these Bananas are on us! This ensures event meetings on the tightest of schedules can snack on the go.
5. Keep to your agenda
Plan your briefing or workshop well in advance. Have a clear agenda and let the room know it! Make use of the walls and post your schedule up for the room to see. Tick off items as you go- everyone likes to see you’re making progress and the end is in sight ?.
6. Include some stimulating socialising
For late afternoon presentations, arrange a social event where delegates can reflect and network together. A cocktail making session is a fun way to integrate the typical “post conference drinks” into an activity all can enjoy – and yes, mocktails are available!
