Does the sound of meeting bore you? Probably it does and by hearing it, you can already imagine long boring talks and a painful arse from sitting in that tormenting seat. But hey, who says that meetings can only be nothing but dull? With an adventurous and creative mind, there are in fact so many things that you can do to make that assembly awesomely unforgettable.
Place is a restaurant
When you plan on gathering people in the office or seeing clients for a very important talk, do not limit your vision with the four walls of the room for a venue. Skip what’s traditional and venture into something non-conventional. It does not always have to be talks and bottles of water. Consider a place with a good ambiance where you and your client can relax while discussing important points. A quiet restaurant can be a good example. With a place like this, you will be able to stress out your concerns at the same time be comfortable and enjoy sumptuous dishes. Now, how can some talks and great foods be boring?
Place is the suburbs
Next is, think of how monotonous it is to be in one place all the time. If the budget is good, why not consider an out of town escapade? If you are the boss of a company, you can make use of this getaway as not only an avenue to discuss important matters but probably for training and seminars as well. Through this, you can deliver what you want to say, develop more competent employees and send a message to everyone that you appreciate all their efforts. This is a treat that everybody will surely remember; and mind you, happy people make good outputs!
Another way to an excellent meeting idea is to let out that athleticism from you. Think of sweating out and enjoy the excitement of sports. In choosing this type of idea though, you have to be very considerate of the person you have an appointment with. Research about the person’s interests well. Unfortunately, in a case where you are the one in need of something or the one trying to close a deal, you will have to pick the sport that the other party is greatly interested in. And you might also be prepared by giving away that game. Well you know, to make the opponent really happy and grant the purposes you have for the meeting. So are you already thinking about those golf clubs of yours?
Finally, how about something that is really out of the box? Perhaps you can consider looking into hobbies and use these as options for the next meeting. Figure out the hobby that you and the person you are to meet enjoy. Who says that you can’t talk about important matters while doing something you love? You can go fishing or just plain boating; or why not treasure hunting or maybe just animal hunting. If you have opted for the latter you might also want to secure necessary tools like long range rifle scopes to complete the feel of that experience. That is just an example that you probably might be interested in.
You see, meetings don’t really have to be stiff and non-engaging. Truth is your options are endless. All you have to do is to leap out from that box you settle your mind into. By doing important gatherings or assemblies exciting you will not only be doing your subordinates or clients a favor but yourself too. It’s like achieving your objectives without the pain of boredom.
