As meeting planners in the 21st century, we’re challenged with a lot more than basic logistics. Attention is being lavished on every last detail, including social media, ROI,
ROO, speaker and participant engagement and corporate social responsibility.
Who would have thought that meeting the dietary needs of your participants should be one of them as well? But it can! What if the food you served your participants helped improve the ROI and ROO for your organization and the attendees? What if swapping out those oversized Danishes for hard-boiled eggs or the candy bars with fresh fruit could help your attendees be better engaged and energized to participate in your event?
Food is a powerful force. It influences how we think, feel, learn and interact with theirs. It helps us feel and do. It provides focus and energy.
Applying the Latin quotation “A sound mind in a sound body” to your meetings harnesses the power that food has on our bodies and can create the possibility of “win-win” for your organization and participants.
• Learn how to address dietary needs and serve healthier alternatives for everyone.
• Examine ways you can add value to your event through food and health.
• Understand how nutrition, including proper hydration, contributes to the participation and outlook of attendees.
• Plan menus offering food options that improve learning, memory and performance, and enhance mood to energize and uplift attendees
