    Guy Bigwood organizes many meetings about sustainability at the MCI Group and he has been a participant of the FRESH conference for several years now. 

    He implements about 80% of what he experiences at FRESH in his own events so he highly recommends meeting planners to attend this conference to learn different tools and methods to organize more effective meetings.

    At FRESH15, we focus on art; applicable art for meetings and events.

    The Power of Music in Meetings

    The Power of Music in Meetings

  • Sofia Rodrigues
  •  

    Music is an important and valuable element in meetings. At least that is what entertainment agencies try to tell us. Is this true or are they just selling entertainment and therefore nothing important? What is music in meetings? Are we talking about playing a few mp3’s in the lobby when people arrive or that (too) loud band during ‘networking’ moments? Or are we talking about a band playing some made to measure music, a drum / jam session with participants or even singing a song as a group? These are all different levels of using...

    Good meeting design comes with a good facilitator. AT FRESH this has always been a principle, so we have had many facilitators involved. A facilitator is a professional that communicates, manages and monitors the meeting format.

Some MCs moderators and chairs are good facilitators, but a facilitator needs special skills and a certain flair or style...
