Transforming Meetings & Incentives Summit
August 27-28, 2018
The Gray, Chicago, IL
This Summit will shatter your assumptions and offer a creative take on every aspect of your events.
Shake Up Your Meetings!
Jim Feldman, author of 14 books including Shift Happens, speaks to audiences around the world about innovation and thriving on change. In this two-part session, attendees will come up with creative, new approaches to the various components of meetings—breaks, panels, general sessions. These collective ideas will then be combined and reported out to the group at the final session.
3 Ways to Use Your App to Enhance the Attendee Experience
Using the conference app he created for the meeting, Jeannie Power of Power Event Group will show how you can drive engagement via audience polls, gamification and social media.
Creative Meeting Formats: Hands-On Workshop
In this hands-on session, attendees will learn how creative meeting formats—such as Open Space and World Café—can be used to explore the obstacles that keep them from making the changes they want to make to their meetings. Facilitator Patrick Parker-Roach of ThoughtRoads has used these formats with organizations ranging from the Society for Organizational Learning to the Department of Justice to Intel to accomplish specific business objectives such as networking, brainstorming and long term improvements to corporate culture.
The Power of Play
Sharon Fisher of Play With a Purpose will share strategies for incorporating purposeful play into your meetings and stories of how hundreds of clients have used playful interaction to accomplish their business goals. By experiencing her bag of tricks throughout the event, you’ll glean smart and strategic ways to weave serious play into your program—starting with the icebreaker on the opening evening.
