What do you intend for your retreats, branded meetings, annual conferences, or customer or community events? Place your objectives along the continuum:
Seeking change or transformation? Anxious to accelerate progress? Consider throwing out the sizzle and celebrity meetings model. How many risky, surprising retreats, annual conferences, customer events or even branded meetings have you attended?
Look At Annual Conferences Specifically:
- Expensive keynote speakers
- Talking head #1
- Panel of talking heads #1
- Maybe a video or other change of pace
- Expensive luncheon speaker
Repeat as necessary and appropriate
Or Retreats . . .
The concept of “retreat” was adapted from religions which periodically gathered leaders and faithful. How often do our business and organization retreats, meant as time to refresh and reconsider, seem more like the same-old same-old? Should the occasion of a retreat actually advance, help you get beyond the obstacles of the daily, accelerate your progress?
