Offsite meetings are a great way to escape the chaos of the office so your team can focus on important projects and also build great chemistry. However, fun, productive meetings don’t just happen. In order for your event to be successful, there are a number of things you should keep in mind.
First and foremost is to hold your meeting at a facility that understands business events, like Twin Pine’s Napa Valley Casino. Below are some additional suggestions.
To get the most out of your event, you should:
Set goals and discuss “rules of engagement.”
Without a set of clearly defined goals, it’s easy for a meeting to get off track. Be sure your team knows what the goals are before you arrive. And be sure that all attendees understand that the meeting space is a “safe zone” where the focus is on positive contributions rather than criticism.
