Boredom-Busting Tips for Creating Engaging Meetings

It's a phrase plenty of meeting planners have heard before: "meetings are boring." It's often true, but it doesn't have to be. What needs to change so that the audience is excited, engaged — and not tempted to check email?
 
For this episode of Eventful: The Podcast for Meeting Professionals, sponsored by Wynn Resorts, we speak with a pair of experts on busting up the typical boring meeting. They offer tips on how to connect with attendees and create an event that will not only hold their interest, but have them talking about what they learned long after the event is over. The guests for this episode are:
 
Lain Hensley, co-owner and head dream chaser of Odyssey Teams, Inc., who founded the company to create teambuilding and CSR experiences for companies of all kinds.
 
Dianne Devitt, founder and owner of The DND Group and author of What Color Is Your Event?, has decades of experience in helping clients deliver their best and cut through the noise of a typical gathering.
