Our meetings with the internationals continued today.
We worked for the day up in a lovely old place in Leura. It was a nice setting, the place was clean and fresh, the food (from morning tea to dinner) was excellent, and the service just right.
It was an environment very conducive to good work - and we covered off a lot of stuff.
There's no question a new, spacious environment can lead to better economy for a business than simply trying to keep things as cheap as possible by having major meetings in a cramped office.
I think our management understands this well, and everything about the 'externals' were geared to help us be productive today - we only get about 3 days a year with these guys, and so it has to work.
Can you think of a time when you shifted everyone out of the everyday workplace, and got a good result out of the move?
