How Important is your event / away-day to the performance of your team?
(100% absolutely vital, 0% = not important at all)
Need high levels of energy & engagement?
Most conferences involve a top table, with guest speakers and Power Point presentations. But engaging today’s audiences requires more, especially if results are expected.
A range of new methodologies has emerged to tackle the challenges of engaging audiences*. These are embedded in the pitstop approach to conferences and events. The result is a new level of energy and engagement.
*Including World Café, Strategic Conversations and Action Learning.
Ready to Test & Respectfully Challenge Your Team?
Attendees often describe away-days and conferences by terms, such as; ‘talking shop’, ‘happy-clappy’, or ‘love-in’. But events and away-days should challenge, as well as inspire.
Pitstop events challenge organizations and teams to:
– More accurately appraise their performance
– Reveal their level of energy & engagement
– Test the level of teamwork, focus &alignment
– Engage in difficult conversations
– Assess the progress of key initiatives, projects & strategies
All this happens in an environment of psychological safety, deliberately created so as to enable people can contribute in an atmosphere of openness, trust and respect.
Looking for results from your event?
A conference or event is a considerable expenditure of time and money – it should have a demonstrable pay-back.
Pitstop events link what happens at your conference to the performance of your organization/team and its key initiatives, priorities or strategies in concrete and measurable ways.
Pitstops can take place in a variety of formats, from a few hours to several days and for groups ranging from 8 to 800.
