No matter how hard companies try, business conferences are often considered to be boring and ineffective by its employees. Read how conference energizers can turn your boring corporate event into a fun, productive experience for your entire company.
Bringing together your employees for a conference is a great way to communicate your business message to your entire workforce. Whether this is a small team of 20 or so people, or many thousands of employees scattered across the country, bringing everyone together under one roof makes practical sense when you need to address your staff.
However, conferences can be dull. Delegates often dread them, fearing that they will have to spend the day in an uncomfortable chair being talked at, or be made to watch power point presentation after presentation until they feel they need matchsticks to prop their eyes open.
But, conferences need not be like this, by using conference energisers you can break up the day with some fun and informal segments. Not only will these, as the name suggests, liven up proceedings and ensure that no-one drops off during the accounts presentation, they are also a great way to break the ice between the delegates and the conference organisers, as well as introduce different employees to each other.
Delegates who are enthused by a conference are more likely to go away remembering your important key messages and feel inspired once back at their workspace.
Conference energisers can be used in many different ways, from an ice breaker at the beginning of a conference, to a way to enforce a particular brand message via a fun game show or music based team building event.
The time period of the conference energisers is entirely up to you. They can be anywhere from 10 minutes to 90 minutes—whatever you feel best suits your company needs and gives the maximum benefit to your delegates. Two of our most popular conference energisers are the HAKA and Junk Funk .
There are always certain points in the day where spirits and attention may wane. After lunch is often a time where, with full bellies, delegates can feel a little sleepy, this is a great time to introduce an energiser to get everyone back on board and ready to start again.
The final couple of hours of a conference can drag, with delegates checking their watches and willing it to end. Information overload can occur and the tendency for minds to wander is high. A fun energiser such as a music based conference energiser towards the tail end of your conference can really reinforce your message and leave your delegates feeling positive and inspired and sure to remember the conference for years to come.
