Meeting Engagement Ideas

I really love this winery video. It sparked some meeting engagement ideas. Two things grab me. One the video itself tells a nice stand alone story. The second is the way they are using art to get the message across. Could meeting managers get some meeting engagement doing something like this at their next meeting? Instead of utilizing a graphic recorder type element could a event manager have a graffitti artist give his/her impression of each presentation? Maybe an online or physical book of the meeting could be made with these images and a short description of the content from a company like The Conference Publishers who specialize in content briefs.

For several years Grass Shack Events Media worked with HP to add a Graphic Recorder to graphically show what each presenter was talking about. When the meeting as over they recieved a copy of the images. How about they walk away with a pice of art instead? Do you think this would that trigger what the session content was?

Have you seen something like this done in the past? Love to get your feedback.

#EventProfs Audio Experiment – Hit or Miss?

eventprofslogo #EventProfs Audio Experiment   Hit or Miss?

I hope you enjoy and dont mind this Talkshoe #eventProfs Audio Experiment which I threw down the MeetingsPodcast feed. Lara McCulloch-Carter started this Event and meeting bi-weekly chats using Twitter and Tweetchat which lets you see only the tweets with the #eventprofs hashmark. Today eventprofs took another step forward (or backwards some said) by adding video to the mix. Robert Swanwick of headed this trial run today. The process was hindered by Twitter really lagging behind I found it to be 8- 10 minutes behind so most people who werent on the call were left out of the action. But I think they had some good conversation.
