We know hundreds of creative meeting techniques. And yet, we tend to stick with our handful of tried and true go-to-meeting structures, don't we? It really doesn’t take much to spice up our next event!

This session is like a HelloFresh or Blue Apron meal-in-a-box delivered to your right to your computer screen with fresh, easy to make recipes and all the ingredients needed to make a tasty new event experience. Wendy Gates Corbett is a corporate talent development (read ‘training’) professional who has designed and delivered thousands of programs in her 20+ year career. She has assembled tantalizing recipes for spicing up experiential face-to-face AND virtual events from industry ‘chefs’ and she shares them all with simple step-by-step instructions.

During the appetizing session, participants learn about the ingredients for each recipe and potential uses for it. Verbally and in the chat window, participants discuss how they can apply the recipes to their own upcoming programs and even how they might tweak a recipe by adding their own ‘flavor’ to it. Participants who attended Wendy’s live breakout session at WEC will be invited to share the results of their challenge! Want to know what the challenge was? You’ve got to attend to find out!

Learner Outcomes:

  • Add to your ‘cookbook’ at least seven creative, novel recipes for designing experiential events to add innovative ‘spice’ to your next event.
  • Generate your own recipes for adding zest to your face-to-face or virtual meetings, adapting from the ideas shared during the session to apply your own flavor to the recipes shared.
  • Create a plan to use at least one recipe in an upcoming meeting to apply what you’ve learned before you even leave the session.

Opening General Session: The Psychology of Illusion - Designing Shared Experiences

Jun 16, 2019 11:15am ‐ Jun 16, 2019 12:30pm

Identification: SUN8

1 Clock Hour | Domain G: Meeting or Event Design

This year, the goal for WEC is to emerge you in an unforgettable shared experience, so you will learn how to create meaningful experiences yourself. Meet Vinh Giang, who will take you on an experiential learning roller coaster to do just that! The margin for error in a magic show is very narrow. When achieving the impossible, it is important that the goals for each act are identified and established beforehand. There is no better way to illustrate this concept than to prove to the audience that—through a feat of seemingly impossible magic—the events of the entire show were prepared before it even began. The emphasis is not on the planning of every logistical element of the show; it’s on guiding perspective, spotlighting influence and challenging belief systems. Vinh’s focus is on designing an audience experience and will provide you with insights in how he does it. He will show you how to design a shared experience in its truest form.

Learning Objectives:
  • Perspective - Participants will learn how to become more innovative in their approach to creating new experiences and realize that thinking differently isn’t as hard as they may think. When you look at innovation in its most granular form it’s just composition. Two different perspectives coming together that haven’t previously come together before. People rarely seek new and different perspectives; they usually without knowing, create echo chambers for themselves. New experiences and new ideas live outside of these chambers. Vinh will show you how.
  • Influence - Participants will learn the importance of environment. We have more control over who we become than we think. This lesson will help attendees realize that they can become anyone they want to become, by becoming more aware of who they spend time with today. A pragmatic lesson everyone will be able to immediately apply to their lives. Vinh Giang is presented by: CMI Speaker Management
