Cool Ways to Kick Up Your Conference

Cool Ways to Kick Up Your Conference

At White Oaks, conferences don’t have to be boring. Bringing your company to a conference is definitely  an important way to get your team together to share successes, learn new skills, and, in some cases, build a better, tighter team or network.  But, bored delegates are unproductive, uncommunicative and unengaged, and ultimately, you are less likely to meet the goals [...]

Camp for the Kids

Camp for the Kids

It’s almost summer. No more rushing to get the bus, no more frantically looking for $20 for a school field trip that the kids didn’t tell you they needed until right this second.
