After discussing the importance of clearly defining your offsite ROI, the value of having a Theme, applying Total Immersion, how to create a Teaser Campaign and a Follow-Up program. Its time to explore this 6th and final component that brings all previous 5 together, into a structured offsite Agenda.
In previous posts of this series, I reviewed the importance of clearly defining your offsite's ROI, having a defining Theme and leveraging the power of Total Immersion. in this post I will review the value of conducting pre-offsite activities that allow you to hit the ground running as soon as the offsite begins.
Ok, onto the second component of a winning company offsite.
