During a business seminar, employees are often invited to discuss company projects and to carry out work. However, these activities take place outside the organisation’s premises, which may have a confusing effect, but can also allow the participants to be more relaxed while sharing friendly moments. In order to achieve the desired objectives, it is important to make the right preparations.
The company seminar
First, you need to determine what type of seminar one you want. Indeed, there are several types and each of them needs a different preparation method. For example, the management seminar brings together the company’s executives in a short time to formulate a common strategy. This event should therefore be focused on reflection and discussion. Everyone can express their views on a specific topic of the current project. The aim is to find solutions to problems or to make innovations to existing strategies. In order to organise a successful training seminar, it should be held in a quiet place.
Picking the place and date for a company seminar
Once you have determined the targets of the corporate seminar, you need to consider the secondary criteria that determine its success: the date and venue of the event. To pick the right venue for your event, you need to consider what you want to find there. If you mainly want the participants to understand the situation, choose a quiet place. On the contrary, if everyone is actively involved in the activity, go to a centre where the activity can be carried out while, obviously, keeping the budget in mind. Fortunately, seminar venues often offer different packages and it is up to you to decide which one suits you best. As for the date, the choice will depend mainly on the company’s schedule.
The food to be served during the event
For your company seminar to be successful, you need to offer something to eat to everyone. Although pastries will make the guests happy, so much food may hinder their focus. It is, therefore, better to go for something more economical and healthier such as fruit in the morning. Lunches should be sufficient to keep participants going all day. Finally, dinner should be a time for relaxation and its success cannot be ignored. Therefore, a slight deviation from the fatty dishes of the morning and lunch menus is allowed. Some alcohol is even beneficial. Thankfully, in most cases, the venue has its own supplier or manager.
