For the second month of our #EOTwellbeing campaign, we’re placing a spotlight on the importance of space.
Why is it relevant to business wellbeing?
How can it be
Is the space giving you options? Can you offer delegates breakout
To keep guest engaged and performing to their highest level possible, it’s important to consider a change of scenery at least once throughout the day. A separate room for lunch, or place to relax, gives you the perfect opportunity to offer a more informal environment for your delegates to recharge.
