Boredroom meetings..... INSPIRE your team in 2019

Why do we stay within the confines of the 4 walls of the office to do our team meetings? Yes it’s work, but let’s get a little more creative around the environment in which we hold our meetings!

I was a Sales Director for many years before venturing into FUNLOCKA, and my memories of leading a Tuesday morning Sales meeting where week in and week out we delivered the same story of performance to budget, current business challenges, new sales tactics, team highlight etc makes me cringe now.

Why? Because what I was doing wasn’t inspiring! it was repetitious, boring and lacked creativity.

As a leader it was my job to excite, engage and connect with them in a way that would inspire them to think differently and to want to achieve their goals.  As a leader I wasn’t doing this, and it is something that I now regret.

Have a look at the faces of those that come into your next team / sales meeting! What’s the vibe like? Are many of them smiling? Are they responsive or distracted? More importantly….. are you feeling inspired??

If you are in need to inspire your team, the easiest thing you can do is get them out of the boredroom (see what I did there?) and get them into a space that will inspire them. You can’t create without stimulation, and the first step in the right direction is setting the right tone in the right environment for the challenge ahead.

Since being on the journey of building FUNLOCKA and fuelling it with experiences, we have uncovered a whole range of different venues where you could hold your next brainstorm, sales meeting, company update and even client presentation.

Here are just a few of our suppliers who are on FUNLOCKA and are offering their venues to support your meeting needs. If any of these are of interest then reach out to our FUNcierge team at funtimes@funlocka.com and we can share these exclusive offers with you!
