As I may have previously mentioned seminars aren't really my thing. But at the 2014 Confex there was a great one by Rachael Cotton from Alton Towers.
If the title itself didn't grab your attention, then Rachael’s engaging style of delivery sure did. The serious bits were interjected with funny anecdotes and well, let’s be honest if you work somewhere as cool as a theme park with a 14 loop ride, then you probably have the fun side of business down pat!
The key points from Rachael’s presentation to take away were:
- 60% of respondents said they would be more interested in attending corporate events if there was an element of fun added
- Fun sparks the imagination so don’t be afraid to use it
- Make sure you consider the delegates and make the day productive as well as fun
- Outdoor activities score very highly in terms of how to add fun

So, what do you guys think? Would a corporate event at Alton Towers work for you?
