Why combine teambuilding with your corporate training course?

Every business leader knows that investing in training for corporate teams is essential for gaining – and keeping – that essential competitive edge. But what’s the best way to really make this training sink in? Our conference venue near Johannesburg has the answer: Add in a targeted teambuilding package. Here’s why: Where theory meets practice: A lot of corporate training involves lectures and studying various theories and training methods. Although they might include some real-life examples of putting these methods into practice, there’s often no way for your team to implement these ideas until they’re back in the corporate environment. Using a targeted teambuilding exercise, you can create scenarios that, while fun, help bring these new theories and methods into practical scenarios in a risk-free way. Let off steam: For employees who are used to a more active and varied workday, intensive, focussed training can be an exhausting experience. Fun teambuilding activities can help them relax and take a break from their studies in a way that has been proven not only to help them build relationships with other team members, but also get the brain relaxed and ready for more learning. Two birds, one stone: Do you have a budget for training and for teambuilding but only have limited time to devote to these important aspects of your business? Combining the two is often the most efficient, effective and useful way of reaching your goals. Training often only takes up a portion of the day, so adding in a teambuilding exercise or two is ideal!

How to plan a successful seminar

Organising a seminar, workshop or conference is a complex task that takes planning, attention to detail and, of course, the perfect conference venue. Here are some tips from Idle Winds, a leading conference venue near Pretoria.  Know your goals: First, decide on the size of your seminar, your budget, how many speakers you will be having and what their technological needs will be. Choose a venue: In addition to being available on your dates and meeting your size, budget and tech requirements, your conference centre needs to have the correct seating style and atmosphere for your seminar as well as be an easy trip for your guests and speakers to make. Catering and accommodation: Your venue needs to be able to cater for everything from snacks and full meals to private dining options, should you require them. For overnight or weekend seminars, you will also need a venue with enough onsite accommodation. Create event communication materials: This includes printed and/or electronic invitations, printed agendas, attendee gifts, name badges and event signage. Confirm the event setup: It’s important to work with your venue to ensure that your seminar setup goes smoothly and problem-free. Give them enough time to set up properly and be sure to arrive well before your seminar to walk through the setup, make any last minute changes and confirmations.  Comfortable, well-appointed conference facilities just 14kms from Fourways Our fully-air conditioned conference village is set in tranquil, well-maintained gardens, encouraging an atmosphere of relaxation and stress-free focus.
