How Can a Venue’s Environment Enhance Personal Development?
We’ve all experienced how a dull, drab room at a workshop or seminar sucks the life out of the room. How can you and your clients be productive when you’re sat in a grey room full of similarly disappointed people, surrounded by more grey dull rooms? The short answer is that you can’t, and it certainly isn’t going to help with your personal development.
Studies show that even just having a single plant in your home office can lead to a drastic increase in productivity and as such, your personal and professional development. Imagine if you will, a workshop, seminar, event or retreat hosted on the doorstep of stunning, breath taking nature. So, how do you run a successful workshop?
At High Trenhouse, we host a wide range of events tailored to the needs of our visitors. As such, our facilities are designed specifically to accommodate a variety of needs. But the common factor is that each and every event focuses on personal development.
The Home Advantage Isn’t Always Ideal
Many choose to host their events in familiar locations, whether that be in their own offices or venues close to home. Whilst this may help clients and yourself save on the associated costs of travel, accommodation and even food, it won’t help your productivity or personal development. There are a great number of things to consider when planning an event, but one of the top things in your mind should be your clients taking away the most for the time they spend. Getting away from your daily routine helps to shake things up and break any rut you or your clients may be stuck in. As such, choosing a venue around the corner from your office may seem like a good idea but could actually detract from your goals.
How do you choose a venue for your seminar? Firstly, you need to consider location. How far does each of your clients need to travel and will this be an issue? Once you have a good idea of this, you can begin looking for a suitable venue that has all necessary facilities. Conference rooms, accommodation, somewhere to go for a walk and absorb everything you’ve learned and of course, somewhere to eat. Does High Trenhouse cater for all of the above? Yes, that and much more. Including a sauna, 2 fully stocked bars and expertly trained staff on hand.
Treating Yourselves For Once
More and more we’re seeing people talk about how self-care is beneficial for our mental health, wellbeing and of course, personal development. By treating yourself and your clients once in a while (or more than that, why not, you’ve earned it), you can actually increase productivity and lead to more desirable outcomes. This is especially true when it comes to running an event or a retreat. The more luxurious and renowned the venue, the more likely your clients are to be excited about it and so they should be. Whilst many events are run in easy to book and cheap spaces, you could break that mould and choose somewhere which really wows your clients. The more excited you and your clients are to attend the event, the more likely you all are to be fully invested in the event.
Spending Some Time Outdoors
It’s not possible to overstate the importance of spending some time outdoors. Getting away from the city, away from the grey dull buildings and the fast-paced lifestyle is the perfect way to ensure an event is an absolute hit with your clients. Not only does the outdoors and nature help to boost productivity, mental health, physical health and happiness, but it will make for some incredible after-event photos to show everyone how great your time was. Your clients may be looking to book in with you again sooner rather than later. But choosing a venue amongst nature doesn’t just do the above, it also gives you and your clients the freedom to work on and consider your personal development. Not something you can really do easily in the hustle and bustle of daily life, is it?
How do you find a venue that has all of the above? The answer is High Trenhouse.
