Getting Back On Track One Meeting At A Time

Getting Back on Track One Meeting at a Time


It’s time to get back on track, one meeting at a time.

With COVID-19 becoming seemingly more manageable with every precaution put in place, businesses worldwide are beginning to consider the next steps to get their 2020 back on track.

The main component of taking that next step is proper planning.

So, what is the best way to plan? Getting together!

While most of the world are waking up from their Zoom hangovers, alternatives to digital communication are now strongly being considered.

But why reinvent the wheel?

Instead of trying to come up with a creative way to get everybody on the same page, businesses should consider what they know best; hold a meeting.

Like many aspects of our lives, what we once knew as normal is now nearly opposite.

The same can be said for traditional meetings where planning, training, discussion, and social interaction could prove to be exactly what businesses worldwide need to recreate the company wide synergy that seemingly fell off a cliff in mid-March.

Yes – meetings have garnered a bad reputation over years past as being time-wasting gatherings, but in the post-pandemic 2020 they may be the most effective way of getting things done.

This 2020 article from Robin, titled The Meeting Room Isn’t Dead outlines tips for businesses who are considering moving forward with post-pandemic meetings.

But, what do you do if you were put in a position to downsize your physical footprint as a result of the crippling pandemic?

Where planning a meeting in your in-house boardroom was as easy as sending an email, more thought must be put in place to ensure that companies are in a setting that will help them make the best of their time.

The Training Room Difference

Despite being largely made of the same space, there is a distinct difference between a meeting room, and a training room.

A meeting room can be fully equipped with all the tech necessary to run your meeting, (and our rooms here at Toronto Meetings certainly do) but to meet with your staff, you need the space, the seating and the table. Those are the essential ingredients.

For a training room, however, not only does that tech have to be there, but it also has to be state-of-the-art. Most commonly a training session will occur in a larger room, with several attendees. It may be difficult to broadcast your voice all the way to the end of the room, or they may have to see something on a larger screen that they are unable to on their smaller laptop, or mobile screens.

Additionally, being in a training room is more of an experience, rather than a service. A meeting may last only a few hours, but a training session can run all day, maybe even multiple days. The room has to be prepared for that. Your attendees have to be able to start the session and end it, potentially several days later, in comfort. Uncomfortable spaces will lead to poor knowledge retention. Definitely not the result you’re looking for.

When choosing a room for your next training session, make sure to pick a space that can accommodate all the attendees. You’ll also want to pick a layout that fits the room, and allows everyone a clear and unobstructed view of the head of the session. As well as of any screens and other visual aids used.

All of these details make for the training room “difference”. Not every gathering is the same, nor should it be treated the same. Which is why here at Toronto Meetings, we are flexible enough to provide rooms that match your needs.
