Magic in business meetings

Ok, it’s your weekly, or quarterly meeting and you have heard it all, the repetition, driving the same message over and over. How do you reach your staff, co-workers, or employees in a different and unique way that gets results? Add a little magic to your theme!
Everyone learns differently, but visual learning combined with participation is a highly motivating way to reach a high majority of your staff! And the element of surprise is a great way to engage your team. Imagine, someone is introduced as part of the new staff or a guest speaker. The audience is expecting the same old, same old when all of the sudden the guest speaker pulls a crystal ball out of the marker he had been using to write down topics. That is exactly what I did when presenting to The Provident Bank for their annual strategic goals meeting.
Or your group is at a safety training and after showing a box that is empty and black while talking about being in the dark regarding safety issues the speaker produces personal protective safety equipment? That is a fun way I introduced PPE to Pike Industry at several meetings.
Engaging participants/employees into the meeting is a much more effective way to help make sure they retain the information. And they will be talking about the dynamic way you introduced the topics; literally thinking out of the box. Exercises, break out groups, interactive decisions all lend to a more engaged meeting and Magic entertainment will go a long way to making your next meeting more memorable and ‘magical!’
