Breakout sessions provide a chance for more in-depth discussions among attendees. Smaller groups also encourage more participation, as well as give participants a chance to do more than sit still listening to lengthy presentations. When planning your next meeting, make sure your breakout session offers something unique to attendees instead of mini versions of the same conference events. Here are some ideas you can implement when planning your next meeting at our lakeside resort.
Breathe In, Breathe Out
Get your team in the right mindset with a yoga or meditation session. Meetings can be stressful, so providing attendees with a relaxing alternative to the conference can help when they get back to keynote and networking events. The Otesaga offers a variety of group activities to fill this need, including restorative yoga, vinyasa yoga, and qigong meditation classes.
Step outside the conference venue and get your team moving. Organize a walking tour of your meeting destination or a hike of nearby nature trails. Be sure to tailor the difficulty according to your attendees abilities. Groups at The Otesaga have the unique opportunity to take a Shinrin-Yoku class, or the Japanese tradition of "forest bathing," as well as a Tai Chi Hike
Learn Something New
Keep attendees engaged with shorter lightning talks. You can utilize the skills of team members to present a unique skill they have, whether it be mastery of another language or a hobby. If you don't want to put your team on the spot, The Otesaga has opportunities for groups to learn something new with our Classic Wine Tasting, which allows participants to deepen their knowledge about the history of wine, as well as Wine and Sign, which delves into astrology and natal charts.
