Consider The Well-being of Your Attendees

It's valuable to offer topics of self-care and well-being

According to Gallup, well-being is the combination of our love for what we do each day, the quality of our relationships, how secure we feel, the vibrancy of our physical health and the pride we take in being involved in and contributing to our community. Most important is how these elements interact. Ultimately, research suggests that only 7 percent of the population is thriving in all of these dimensions. We get fixated on one aspect of our well-being, and the others suffer—even in very high-performing people.

At a recent client conference, Event Garde helped design a new general session experience to shine a spotlight on the topics of self-care and well-being. Like many of our peers and colleagues, our focus is often on the care, safety, success and well-being of others (e.g., board, volunteers, staff, members, speakers, exhibitors and other key stakeholders) - not to mention our own family and friends. So, we intentionally created time and space for meeting attendees to put their own self-care first; to reflect on their personal well-being; and to set some intentions for the year ahead.

During this new/interactive general session and breakfast, participants explored the multidimensional nature of well-being.
