Our client requested a Zen room with a serene atmosphere, complete with a guided meditation. This environment provided room for concentration and focus, improving productivity for attendees. The concept of well being is a holistic system that strives to establish harmony between our body, mind and spirit. In this newsletter we will focus on how wellbeing has become prominent in the events world, educating everyone on the importance of taking care of yourself, inside and out. 🙏 Namaste.

FUN FACTS ABOUT e2 AND HOW GOOD IT FEELS TO GIVE BACK
This year, Central Florida residents have been hit extra hard since most rely on tourism and travel-related jobs, many of which ended during the pandemic.
Instead of sending client Christmas gifts, we donated our Christmas gift budget to One Heart for Women and Children. What we normally spend on each gift was enough to provide Christmas for a child or teenager who would not have received anything this year.
We spent last Thursday at One Heart for Women and Children's Orlando warehouse, wrapping over 200 gifts and creating Christmas stockings to give to the adults living in our local women and children shelters.
One Heart is a local, home-grown, non-profit organization who has supported residents of Central Florida for the last 15 years. 2020 has been particularly hard for One Heart, as the need is so great.
WHAT'S THE SCOOP?
In this issue, instead of sharing new event spaces, we are focusing on team building events that can be done no matter where in the world you are. (Cue Carmen Sandiego) Just because your group is not together in person, doesn't mean that they can't work together remotely.
In order to avoid Zoom fatigue, encourage your virtual meeting attendees to take a quick break and complete a series of short challenges on their own devices. Use our standard game or customize the challenges around a theme of your choosing. Players simply tap on each of the 6 post-it notes to open a challenge.
For instance, for the “motivate” task, players record a 15 second video to share what motivates them with their colleagues. For the “inspire” task, players display their favorite inspirational quote in a creative way. And, when they tap on “energize” they take a photo that illustrates how they stay physically or mentally fit. The results are shared with the group in a presentation afterwards, so all can take note of and be inspired by the interesting things shared by their colleagues!
Typically a 15-30 minute stand-alone activity or challenges released at set times throughout the course of the day
Available for any size group, played as individuals.
