Creating an Engaging Event

Are you trying to inspire your team or customer to action?

We used academic research to find a few possible solutions for your company.

Whatever you do,
DON'T hire a speaker.

Researchers evaluated overall attentiveness in virtual meetings by comparing audiences listening to a speaker (one-directional), and audiences actively participating in a meeting with the same speaker (two-directional). Attentiveness measures rose dramatically when audiences participated. 

Share the same
food or drink.

Researchers studying collaboration found people eating the same food could reach agreement and find win-win scenarios twice as fast as people eating different foods, and nearly 75% faster than people wearing the same shirt.

Have meaningful conversations about ideas.

Researchers studying interpersonal closeness found a 45-minute conversation premised on specific types of questions creates interpersonal connection perceived as closer than the closest connection with someone people have known for years.

Foster diverse interactions to expand openness to new ideas.

Researchers found expanding group membership to include an outsider led the group to generate 30% more and better ideas, and particularly improved the creative output of the most tenured team members most significantly. This process also keeps intra-team rivals from negating each others’ ideas.
