Proposed 1 Clock Hour Domain G: Meeting or Event Design
We know hundreds of creative meeting techniques. And yet, we tend to stick with our handful of tried and true go-to-meeting structures, don't we? It really doesn’t take much to spice up our next event!
This session is like a HelloFresh or Blue Apron meal-in-a-box delivered to your right to your computer screen with fresh, easy to make recipes and all the ingredients needed to make a tasty new event experience. Wendy Gates Corbett is a corporate talent development (read ‘training’) professional who has designed and delivered thousands of programs in her 20+ year career. She has assembled tantalizing recipes for spicing up experiential face-to-face AND virtual events from industry ‘chefs’ and she shares them all with simple step-by-step instructions.
During the appetizing session, participants learn about the ingredients for each recipe and potential uses for it. Verbally and in the chat window, participants discuss how they can apply the recipes to their own upcoming programs and even how they might tweak a recipe by adding their own ‘flavor’ to it. Participants who attended Wendy’s live breakout session at WEC will be invited to share the results of their challenge! Want to know what the challenge was? You’ve got to attend to find out!
Add to your ‘cookbook’ at least seven creative, novel recipes for designing experiential events to add innovative ‘spice’ to your next event.
Generate your own recipes for adding zest to your face-to-face or virtual meetings, adapting from the ideas shared during the session to apply your own flavor to the recipes shared.
Create a plan to use at least one recipe in an upcoming meeting to apply what you’ve learned before you even leave the session.
