Issue Video: April/May 2015

By Collaborate Staff, April 14, 2015

Our main feature, “The Dark Side of Meetings” warns about harassment and bullying in our industry, presenting actions to prevent bad behavior and explaining the risks to your events. The health of your meetings takes another turn in a piece titled “The New Age of Enlightenment.” With the demand for a higher ROI at meetings, an emphasis on wellness promises more engaged, productive attendees and better meeting environments. In a nod to the 45th anniversary of Earth Day, “Green Zone,” reviews some of the latest developments lessening the footprint of large gatherings.

All in all, this issue offers a blueprint for ways meeting professionals can, and are, changing the culture of meetings, from ethics to the environment. Maybe we can lead the way toward a greater cultural revolution.

Plus, from how to fend off Airbnb, the shift from logistic to strategic thinking and production value on any budget, see what else is in this issue and subscribe for free to get your copy delivered right to your mailbox.
