Prepping For A Corporate Conference

Many corporate offices either host or send their employees to attend conferences related to what work they might be engaged in at the time. This could include anything from a conference where training is provided to employees, where employees exchange information and plans. For instance, if you are part of a multinational group of companies or organisations, then there will likely be employees from the world over or from different branches looking to exchange ideas and learn. Hosting such a conference is no easy feat so here are some suggestions.

Organise logistics
First things first, you will need to get a head start on organising and sorting out all the logistics for the event. This will include ensuring that you have a list of invitees and participants and that you follow up on their attendance. You will need to scout a location to host the conference – we would suggest a hotel – especially if it is a large scale conference. Then you will need to ensure that accommodation, transport and meals are also taken care of for each of the participants and invitees. If you are booking a hotel for the conference, you will likely be able to book rooms at the same location and may even be able to get a decent rate at the same hotel.

Check on amenities
When booking a space in which to host the conference you will need to ensure that the space has all the necessary amenities. For starters, you will have to ensure that there is enough seating for all the participants – so look into booking a large hall or auditorium. You will also need to set up a head table or platform for the speakers or leaders of a conversation to be located on. You will need to ensure that the room is equipped with a sound system and that mics and speakers are available and in working order. Also check on whether hotel meeting rooms are available for use. Book a few hotel meeting rooms for smaller meetings and group activities that might be conducted over the course of the conference. You could also set up a base of operations for the organising committee in one such hotel meeting rooms.

Delegate you work
Organising such a conference is not a task for a single person. You will need to delegate work and ensure that you have a great team that you can trust to help you pull the whole thing together. Have a communications team to handle correspondence, have one team in charge of participants and yet another to handle the actual venue and the lunch buffet Bangkok proceedings – if your tam works well the conference is sure to be a success.


The Perfect Gift For Your Boss

 

Your relationship with your boss, like everyone else’s may not be the greatest and therefore being tasked with organizing something for your bosses birthday or another occasion can be slightly awkward because you may not know what to buy him. Your gift to your boss cannot be very personal and it also has to be somewhat meaningful and therefore you will need to put a lot of thought in to the gift that you buy him. You will need to find a gift that is meaningful, costs a certain amount of money in order not to appear cheap and will also need to be slightly official.

An experience package

One very interesting and meaningful gift that you can buy your boss is a ticket to a golf tour. There is a lot of golf tours in New Zealand and you will be able to get one for a prince that is not too expensive but is not too cheap and therefore suitable as a gift for your boss.

The first thing that you and your colleagues will need to do is put your money together and decide how much you can afford. After you have set a budget, you can start looking for golf tours. New Zealand will be sure to have some very nice golf tours that will give your boss not only the experience of golfing but will also help him relax and enjoy some extremely good meals at the gold clubs various restaurants, meals that will be included in the package. You may even want to find out what your bosses favourite food is and have the chef make this especially for him to surprise him at the experience.

However, it is important that you make sure that your boss is interested in golfing and knows the sport. If you find out he does like the post, you could choose to give your boss another experience package based on something that he loves to do. The key is to show your boss how much he truly means to the staff as a boss. In some offices, bosses may be akin to friends with the employees and in these cases, you could even simply take your boss to lunch as a group and have a cake baked for him. You may even want to consider surprising him and getting your bosses family involved in the surprise to make it a little bit more fun however all of this would depend completely on your bosses’ personality and the relationship that you have with your boss.
