Do your meetings lack energy and motivation? Are you tired of post-prandial seminar slumps and death by discussion?Meetings and event experts at the Crowne Plaza Gerrards Cross Hotel have identified that many businesses seeking to create a collaborative atmosphere amongst colleagues, can actually generate quite the opposite with long and often ineffective meetings. They have therefore created a solution aimed at energising your team, waking up your work-force and generating motivation amongst the collective with Break-Out, Work-Outs.
Break-Out, Work-Outs are a series of powerful, express pick-me-ups to revitalise, re-energize and reconnect your delegates through tailored exercise programmes.
Available pre, during or post meetings, Crowne Plaza Gerrards Cross’s Break-Out, Work-Outs include 10-minute seated energisers with their in-house Fitness Instructor, or invigorating private Spin classes to truly get the red blood cells pumping around the grey matter.
This holistic approach to effective meetings extends to the hotel’s design, which has been described as generating a ‘breath of fresh air’ and healthy menus, including fresh fruit shots, Superfood salads and vitamin infused dishes aimed at eliminating lethargy.
Forward-thinking Crowne Plaza Gerrards Cross Hotel re-launched their meeting and events space in Winter 2015, relying on innovation principles devised by BMW Group subsidiary Designworks. A first for a branded hotel. The 6500sqm ‘styled with substance’ venue provides a unique, elegant and technologically advanced proposition for conferences, meetings and events.
As part of a £20m top to toe development Crowne Plaza Gerrards Cross Hotel (previously The Bellhouse Hotel) includes two large, flexible conference and banqueting spaces seating up to 350 and 260 persons respectively, six meeting rooms, a Creative Attic, a mix of private working zones, islands and comfortable niches, which can be adapted, re-configured and re-arranged to suit the needs of each host, breakout bar and beautifully landscaped gardens. The hotel has also been fitted with the latest innovations, including progressive Wi-Fi capabilities, sound systems and projection screens for presentations and speeches.
"Successful meetings, conferences and events need more than just ‘rooms’. They require the right combination of space, atmosphere and service as a tailored solution”, said Sonja Schiefer, Director of the European Studio of Designworks in Munich. “Therefore Designworks developed a set of principles that enabled and inspired the Crowne Plaza Gerrards Cross to create a meeting and event space that is both functionally convincing and emotionally engaging. Because meetings are not just about work, they are social events taking place in a special context”.
