Firm meetings. Practice group retreats. Industry group strategy sessions. Alumni gatherings. “Client Experience” workshops. These and many other group settings create excellent opportunities for business development success. Creating an environment for individuals and teams to connect, collaborate, debate, discuss and otherwise expand their networks of friends and associates and influence.
Offsite meetings and retreats help us disengage from the daily grind and “step back” – or retreat – to view our world from a fresh perspective.
Smart phones, tablets, laptops and other devices that invade our daily lives pose a particularly difficult challenge to meeting planners and presenters. How can we maintain attention – and focus – when the outside world is continuously fighting for our attention in “urgent” emails, tweets and txt message?
The Active Approach:
McMurdo Consulting works with clients to create innovative, interactive meetings that engage participants and challenge them to teach and learn from each other.
Our menu of activities, competitions and exercises is constantly growing. A representative sample includes:
- In-person, video and audio case studies on a broad number of topics.
- Wireless polls using anonymous audience response technology.
- Innovation tournaments.
- Quiz shows.
- “Speed dating” and related networking exercises.
- Impromptu debates and role play.
- Information “scavenger hunts.”
- Pitch and presentation competitions.
We work with each client to design and develop custom activities and exercises tailored to each client’s culture and goals.
Our “attention to attention span” approach significantly increases participant engagement and enjoyment and leads to memorable retreats with long-lasting effect.
