Your meeting, your way—by design.
Customize your next meeting to suit the styles and sensibilities of your attendees. Meetings by Design gives you a choice of four special meeting set-ups, ranging from serious high-tech to no-nonsense, no-tech options.
Green Meetings. For environmentally concerned groups, now it’s easy for your meeting to be green. Recycled materials, a Zen garden, trail mix—even a donation made on your group’s behalf to the We Campaign, a nationwide effort by the Alliance for Climate Protection to promote solutions to climate change.
Brainstorming. Get the creative juices flowing with some serious fun designed to spark innovative ideas. Etch-a-Sketch, Play-Doh, and Slinky become tools for inspiration, and a selection of retro candies keeps the energy level high. And for those really tough decisions, a Magic 8-Ball just might have the answer.
Hi-Tech. Loaded with all the latest gadgets, this is the kind of meeting techies will love. A plasma screen or LCD projector, Webcam and podcast capabilities, and a digital video recorder are among the tech toys at hand. When it’s break time, PlayStation or Wii will keep the crew engaged.
No-Tech. Check your BlackBerries at the door and get down to business with this old-school meeting set-up. Whiteboard and corkboard, flip charts and sketch pads, a dictionary and a thesaurus—get back to basics and focus on ideas, not i-stuff. A few classic games are included for some additional analog inspiration.
