A well-organised conference has the power to connect people, breed innovation and spark change.
And whether you’re the Head of Learning and Development or Head of HR you know that a conference has the ability to sharpen skill sets, boost morale and paves the way for people to share their ideas.
However, if you’re in the people business you’ll also know just how easy it is for an event to fall short.
After all, there are a million and one things that could go wrong or even worse, fizzle out before the day’s even started. Yep, organising a conference is not for the faint-hearted!
Your brain is likely to be ticking overtime with questions like; Does the tone of the day match up? And the icebreakers, are they stimulating?
Not to mention the HUGE challenge of keeping the delegates energised and awake for seven or more hours (after all people have travelled far and wide to get there and are likely to be feeling the slump).
The solution? A conference energiser!
Conference energisers are a fantastic way to kickstart any conference off on a high.
Not only that but they’re also very effective in relaying your company and conference message. Here are some of our most popular ideas to ensure your conference is an ultra -success . . .
If you think you’ve heard a lion ROAR, you can think again! Inspired by our Maori friends from across the pond the almighty HAKA will soon turn your delegates into ROARING, stomping warriors as they watch and learn the moves from our pro-Haka dancers.
A sure-fire way to inject energy and fun into any conference – the HAKA is the godfather of icebreakers!
