In an effort to show how easy to organise our conference energiser options can be, here is a perfect recent example. Home or abroad, I can’t think of anything better than our rhythm conference energisers – such as boomwhackers and Clap Happy – for instantly bringing entertainment, cohesion and real team success.
Only a few weeks ago, during a conference call to our new clients in the States, we discussed the final event details. Specifically, we were to deliver a Clap Happy session to 650 conference delegates in Chicago. We were to transform delegates into a clapping orchestra while wearing different coloured rubber gloves!
On that last call, we were asked about multiple microphone positions, PowerPoint integration, lighting requirements and glove transporting issues.
I calmly replied that just one man, with two suitcases, would arrive from the UK and need just one microphone. Nothing else would be required. There is something incredibly powerful in just one facilitator transforming a room into something special, from practically nothing.
Event organisers tend to have enough on their plate with the likes of ever-changing presenters and technical challenges. That’s why we have created the perfect conference activities with the least of amount of input required from event organisers, so they will have us back again and again!
I could tell that our very experienced USA event company was not used to such a simple and stress-free conference component. This is exactly why our Clap Happy and boomwhacker activities are so popular with event organisers all over the world.
I personally arrived at Chicago airport with just two pieces of luggage, containing 650 pairs of rubber gloves.
Keeping it simple does not mean that our clients are missing out on something. I walked on stage and presented a high-energy session that underlined the conference values and brought dynamic action to the morning. I left a totally energised audience, with everyone contributing to the multi-layered rhythm-clapping orchestra.
The overall success of this session wasn’t only due to the powerful musical props we brought or the effectiveness of the facilitator. A key reason delegates were empowered and had such fun on the day was because of the all-round spirit and goodwill in the room. My job was to inspire the audience into action!
As I walked through the conference centre with my empty two suitcases to meet my awaiting taxi, the foyer was awash with hundreds of charged-up delegates. Most people were waving at me with their now much-coveted rubber gloves!
Home or abroad, it’s never too late to add one of our easy-fit conference activities – with maximum impact, minimum equipment and only one facilitator.
