Fun Conference Ideas to Team Build and Energize
YOUR ANNUAL MEETING IS A CHANCE TO MOTIVATE YOUR TEAM...
If you are looking for opening fun conference ideas to team build and bring people together or energize your group, consider including a team building speaker! Sean incorporates fun activities into his teamwork or leadership messages to keep your audience engaged and emphasize the key ideas you want attendees to remember.
The truth is that, at the end of many conferences, the audience leaves with sore backsides from sitting through a series of boring, traditional presentations.
If you want to create a more positive experience at your event, Sean will help energize your group and ensure that they make a few new connections. In addition to inspiring laughter, smiles, and applause, he will also:
- Boost the energy and get your attendees more engaged
- Help create more meaningful and lasting relationships
- Establish a sense of community and breakdown barriers
- Provide a positive experience and increase future attendance
Whether you need someone opening your conference to provide powerful ice-breakers that inspire your people to interact with one another to forge relationships, or are looking for an early afternoon session speaker to energize and team build your group, Sean provides fun conference ideas and experiences that won't be forgotten.
You want your people to have a great experience and remain alert and attentive throughout the entire day… and who you choose to invite as your presenters will have a huge influence on how successful the conference is for your audience.
As a meeting planner, you want to ensure that your audience leaves more connected, with memorable and actionable insights. The way to do that?
Stay away from the passive presentations they dread, and include more of the presentation styles that they dream of...
1. What Your People Dread:
Your people sit passively and soon lose interest in PowerPoint slides that are filled with paragraphs and platitudes. Boredom sweeps across the room, and the audience begins to fidget and check their emails instead of focusing on the message or being prepared to take action on anything that was said.
A dull traditional speaker is chosen to open your meeting...
2. What Your People Dream of:
You choose to invite Sean to INTERACT with your people...
Sean brings enthusiasm and great content, incorporating out-of-your-seat paired and whole group activities that get your audience involved in and experiencing the message. Your group will not only connect and team build, they will internalize the take-aways.
The entire audience is laughing, energized, and impacted by the message.
Sean delivers engaging activities with real-world applications...
Knowing and doing are two very different things -
Instead of just sharing content, Sean creates EXPERIENCES that help his messages stick - and THAT helps your people apply the ideas to their life and future interactions - so the take-aways last much longer and have real impact.
Sean is an experienced and engaging speaker who has shared his customized teamwork and leadership messages with teacher groups, dental practices, construction companies, athletic programs, and organizations just like yours!
Attendees expect a high-quality learning experience where they can interact and share ideas with the people around them. They want a framework of information and conversation to create connections, not just amass more knowledge.
There are a number of ways to improve the audience experience and team build at your conference – beginning with the layout and usage of space at your venue.
Instead of traditional theater-style seating (which discourages interaction between attendees), consider using 8 person round tables with a clear view of the stage.
