So, you want the secret to keeping your team engaged during your business sermon? Well, the truth is while meetings aren’t the most exciting things in the world, they must happen. And because they are necessary, that means there must be a way to make them fun. Treetops Resort has your meeting mojo covered weary, corporate traveler. Come, stay awhile and soak up some of Treetops’ certified techniques for hosting meetings that matter. Ensure that every participant will stay awake this time around

Talk about the pudding first, then the proof
Use more anecdotes than analysis

Using examples and experiences to prove your point triggers right-brain thinking. Get your team’s creative juices flowing with fun stories; like the time a coworker scanned his thumbprint onto a report or an embarrassing memory from a past holiday party. Then get into the left-brain details of the meeting.

Plot your talking points like a treasure map
Share those doubloons

Give a primer to your team before the meeting to spark curiosity and ignite participation. Also, share a copy of your meeting outline with your group so they know where you plan to dig deep into topics. When people have access to the itinerary for the day, they can note topics of interest, track discussion progress, focus on the topics at hand and see the light at the end of the tunnel when the day is drawing to a close.

Think outside the box and the office
Leave the dungeon

That conference room down the hall can only do so much in the way of inspiration. Take your status reports and brainstorming to outdoor, woodland scenes such as The Lark at Treetops, an outdoor location fit for over 200 people. Nurture your meetings with a side of nature, which has proven to help with anxiety, stress, and high blood pressure – all things commonly found in an office cubicle.

See? It’s not that hard once you have the tools to make meetings a treat. Your team may not remember all the content, but they’ll never forget the context. Context rules with relatable stories, new meeting locales, and simple topic structure. After you’re finished, they’ll be begging for another presentation.
