Smiles, laughs, blissful productivity: we know these are indicators that attendees are having a memorable experience. Such good feelings also increase learning. But how can event pros create situations where good feelings are more likely to be a result?
Andrea Sullivan of BrainStrength Systems and Lynn Randall of Randall Insights will help us tackle this question on the next #eventtable chat April 2 at 3 pm est. We’ll talk about proven ways to elicit the production of chemicals in the brain responsible for producing good feelings and how they can be incorporated into event design.
“I think planners need to plan in all kinds of specific experiences, since we know that the experience is mainly what people remember. With creating “good feelings” – it’s extremely important because our emotional system is what decides what is of value to us and what is not,” notes Andrea.
“Everything from what meetings we attend to what suppliers we purchase from is chosen on a mostly unconscious level where “having a good feeling” is often the deciding factor. Plus, those good feelings produce beneficial neurotransmitters that aid in achieving outcomes: thinking is clearer, memory is supported, productivity is increased, collaboration and team synergy are enhanced and even creativity thrives.”
