From inspiring keynote sessions and futuristic start-ups to interactive activations and discovering new artists, here are a couple of my highlights from SXSW 2019…
Located in one of the start-up capitals of the world, Austin, Texas, SXSW is a 10-day conference and festival running between 8th – 17th March 2019 that brings in over 75,000 attendees for the conference, and another 288,000 attendees for the festivals.
Planning a team event that is effective in maximising outcomes requires careful consideration, and there are consequences for getting it wrong – not only will staff be bored or disengaged at the event itself, but they’ll be disinclined to want to participate in any in the future, and it will be much harder to justify the investment in organising them as a consequence.
When you go about organising a team activity, you should be aware of what, exactly, you are looking to achieve with that activity.
On the most basic of levels, a successful team-building activity will entertain.
But there’s more to it than that.
You hear it everywhere, NO MORE power point slides, we need to create interactive sessions. I mean everyone seemed to agree at the latest MEA conference when Eric De Groot said we need to make our meetings full of participants, NOT audiences.
