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 [...]

Let Er Zip

I very desperately want to write a blog that goes in our “Inspiration” section.  How great would it be to inspire?  But  I have not overcome anything, I have not accomplished anything truly great, I have not climbed up a mountain or a big hill or learned a lost language or persevered and discovered a cure for anything.  I’m just [...]

Minute To Win It

As I was preparing for this program, thoughts of anticipation and apprehension were entering my mind. I know I love the “Minute to Win” type challenges, but I was unsure if the group of more than 200 delegates was going to love it just as much.
