Guide to kick-off meetings
Kick-offs – more than a regular meeting
Ditch the overdone slideshows and long lectures next year. Follow our top-tips for successful kick-off meetings at The Elvetham in 2018.
1. Allow enough time
A good agenda = best use of time. But make sure there’s enough of it in the first place! Add an hour for greetings and breaks so everyone’s comfortable.
2. Expand your mind
Get eyeballs away from laptops and mobiles, and help open everyone up with creative activities. We suggest lining the magnetic walls with project paper and whipping out a big pack of Sharpies!
3. Get people talking
Encourage ideas and communication by letting groups wander. Use our dedicated break-out spaces for group discussion, or take a walk around the beautiful gardens to re-energise.
4. End on a high
Long kick-off meetings can be tiring, especially after indulgent Christmas breaks! Reward your team with a drinks reception and dinner to motivate them to start 2018 with a bang!
