Why the Traditional Teambuilding Model Is Broken and What to Do Instead

Wednesday, May 25, 2016, at 2 p.m. EDT

When attendees are involved in teambuilding, they might think they’re on a one-way train to snoozeville. Many would describe teambuilding as long, boring and expensive, but it doesn’t have to be. Learn a new model, its science and the laws of fun from the man whose company has delivered more fun than anyone in the world: Nick Gianoulis, founder of The Fun
Dept. and co-author of “Playing it Forward.”

Learning Objectives
1. Know why fun matters at work.
2. Learn the model, science and laws of fun.
3. Find out how to effectively implement fun within
the workplace.

Nick Gianoulis is founder of The Fun Dept.—a consulting and training company that has been featured on CNN, BBC News, The Washington Post, TEDx and numerous other media outlets, and has clients ranging from Fortune 100 companies to those with as few as 10 employees.

Known as “The Godfather of Fun,” Gianoulis began his company after experiencing firsthand the enhanced culture and business results of fun during his 20-year corporate management tenure with a company that embraced a work-hard-play-hard culture. Gianoulis is also co-author of “Playing It Forward.”

His company has delivered more fun in the workplace than any other company in the world. Gianoulis believes building brief, consistent and engaging activities into the corporate culture is more important than ever thanks to the presence of millennials, who will make up 75 percent of the workforce by 2025.

The Law of Doing Good Things

Wednesday, June 22, 2016, 2 p.m. EDT

In our litigious society, anyone can be sued for anything—even good things! In this unique and informative session, participants will consider scenarios highlighting the liability issues associated with integrating social responsibility into the meetings industry. We will discuss the parameters of food donation laws and explore the realities and myths of Good Samaritan laws, including the less well-known “Bad Samaritan” laws. Find out who is really protected under the Volunteer Protection Act. You can and should do good things… but you should also protect yourself and your organization along the way.

Learning Objectives
1. Develop effective food donation policies and programs.
2. Communicate the limitations of personal risk to
potential volunteers.
3. Evaluate the risk and responsibility for rendering aid
(or failing to render aid) to those in need.
