Conferences that inspire and generate positive change...
Many conferences fall into the trap of being a mixture of “Death-by-PowerPoint” followed by unconnected (and often expensive) team building exercises. One month later, and CEOs are left wondering ‘was it worth the expense?’. Greenbank conferences are very different to this…
We specialise in delivering motivational and highly creative conferences that are both memorable and also designed to deliver lasting change.
To achieve this we offer a very flexible range of services to provide exactly the support our clients need, which can include everything from motivational speaking, keynote speeches, to the full ‘soup to nuts’ organisation of the conference.
Delivering Business Messages Creatively:
We are experts at finding innovative ways to deliver crucial messages. At the last count we have used over 50 different approaches (!) including;
- Directors being interviewed on stage by a professional TV chat show host
- Creating an exhibition environment where people seek the information they need
- Directors coming onto the conference floor and having open conversations with each table
- Use of video and role plays
- Creating a series of TV shows, including quiz programmes, documentaries etc
- Award ceremonies
- This is Your Life events for mangers who are retiring
We recognise that each client is different and the approach needs to be adapted to their specific culture and budget – we are renowned for identifying virtually zero cost ways of getting messages across in an interesting way – we love the challenge…
We often MC the conference, including evening activities, introducing speakers and facilitating exercises. This allows sales directors and other managers to relax and focus on their individual sessions, knowing the conference is in safe hands.
We have a huge range of inside and outside team building options, which we either deliver ourselves or via trusted specialist partners. We also create these form scratch in conjunction with clients. Either way we provide a seamless, single point of contact. In the last couple of years this has included;
- Mountain-based activities in the French Alps
- Team Olympics
- Beach Sports
- City Photography Tours
- Creative thinking competitions
- Designing huge Picasso-like pictures
- Electronic Mazes
- Video-creation exercises
- Team Karaoke
- Murder Mysteries
- Pub Game Competitions
We have a wide range of in-house or external speakers who are skilled at linking the clients strategic messages to their material and actually building approaches to allow participants to motivate themselves after the conference.
Conferences provide the opportunity for cost-effective training if handled in the right way. As you might expect we have a number of interesting, innovative approaches to ‘macro-training’ that avoid the trap of resorting to one-way presentations. We involve the audience every step of the way through exercises, team presentations, role plays etc, so that individuals are involved and learn despite the large numbers.
This is just a small snapshot of the scope of what we achieve. For many of our clients we run their annual conference and are into the 4th or 5th year with them… Our challenge is to continually find new ways to surprise them whilst always delivering clear Return on Investment. Every client, though and every conference is different…
