CONFERENCE SPEAKERS and TEAM BUILDING – And how they synchronise

Without a conference speaker or speakers / facilitators, there is no conference or team building and in conference planning, there is always a theme or a topic which needs to be discussed and valuable information and insights to be passed on to the delegates.

To find a conference speaker, team building company or other related conference supplier please complete the form at the bottom and we will assist you.

Frequently, conferences are linked to performance, team bonding, motivation, productivity, support systems, gaining valuable knowledge and input from personal experiences.  Often however, the key-note speaker might not have anything to do with any of the desired outcome of the conference but is invited to throw in something quite different to refresh and even sometimes to upturn stuck ideas!

There are many talented speakers, motivational or otherwise in South Africa to choose from. There are trainers who run three or four-day workshops working individually yet in a group dealing with self-development and relationship.

Relationship. An interesting word to ponder on for a while.  Have we all considered that we are in fact in relationship with everything on this planet? Whether it be in relationship with a spouse, a sibling, a parent, a pet, a peer, a boss, Mother Earth, wild life, the weather, money, lack of money, feelings, thoughts and well yes ….. absolutely everything in this life is in relationship with everything else.

In this vast field of study there are some awesome workshops available facilitated by some awesome trainers, who are willing to run their workshops from anywhere providing numbers in attendance make it viable for them to travel. Perfect for the corporate group of 20 or more staff members.

How are speakers, conferences and Team Building synchronised? Where time permits, an afternoon spent in Team Building is incredibly valuable to organise and get into the appropriate perception, ideas which might still be floating or flying all over the place … those gleaned from a speaker and his or her presentation, those learned from the conference content and those insights delegates have got from their peers, while networking or simply having a social chat while attending a conference. Perhaps many of these people would otherwise never have met.  All this adds value to the conference delegates’ experience.

Team Building is designed to meet many needs and the experts in this field will purpose build an itinerary for an afternoon or morning or evening where your own specifics will be addressed, played out, in a light-hearted manner on the stage of ‘fun’ and activity.  It might be about team support, working as one, it might be about building self belief, or self-respect or being ‘forced’ out of your gold-fish bowl to expand yourself and experience what else is out there.  Or it might be about sharing, about playing as equals on the games field.  And these dedicated team builders, speakers, trainers, facilitators are trained and experienced enough to understand your company’s specific needs. They are good people to know and keep in your address book!
