With the excitement of the holidays behind us, this is the perfect time to plan a corporate meeting of the minds. Formalizing a planning session to discuss business priorities and strategies for the year ahead can motivate your executive and management teams. It can get them in sync on the best ways to achieve company goals.
January through March are the perfect months to plan and schedule company retreats, training sessions, or conferences for the year. These functions can include many employees and guests, so it is best to plan ahead. Guest speakers may need to schedule months in advance due to other speaking engagements, and there should be time set aside for marketing and promoting the event. Although conferences, training sessions, and retreats can be held year-round, the spring and fall seasons are the most popular options as they do not interfere with the holidays or summer vacations.
Careful Planning Can Create a Strong Company Culture
Setting a budget, choosing a venue, and structuring memorable activities are key elements to a successful event. Depending on the company budget, a conference, training session, or retreat can last anywhere from one business day to a full work week.
The ideal venue will provide large meeting rooms and breakout spaces for smaller team meetings and cross-team meetings. In addition to high-energy forums to talk business, it is recommended to have unstructured free time, group meals, and fun activities to facilitate employee bonding and boost morale. Choosing the right venue is just as important as the event itself. It is essential to choose a destination that is convenient for travel. Scheduling an event near a major airport or transportation system will heighten attendance.
