Humans are apparently able to process more information when on their feet and when walking side by side, rather than facing each other in a more confrontational stance, we are more likely to offer honest feedback and be more open in our discussions.
One meeting, conference and events venue, Hodsock Priory located on the border of South Yorkshire and North Nottinghamshire, has seen firsthand how outdoor corporate events have grown in popularity and success, and have been hosting them for some time now.
“We have been hosting superb quality weddings and meetings since 2005 and with a little investment recognised that we could expand our portfolio to accommodate more guests,” commented George Buchanan ninth generation resident and general manager Hodsock Priory. “Our 800 acre estate provides the perfect corporate playground for outdoor meetings, breakout sessions and a variety of outdoor pursuits such as clay pigeon shooting or archery. Our indoor meeting facilities allow between two and sixty delegates and conference and training days for up 160 in theatre style setting with full catering and overnight accommodation available in one of ten luxury suites at The Courtyard.”
One company to fully benefit from the splendour of Hodsock was Reckitt Benckiser who accepted ‘The Hodsock Challenge’ – a test of teamwork and executive expertise in the great outdoors – demanding on the mind but not on the corporate pocket.
Beverley Towle from Reckitt Benckiser who held a two day conference at Hodsock commented. “All the team thoroughly enjoyed Hodsock and enthused about the stunning surroundings, facilities and homemade cakes! We shall not hesitate to host further events at Hodsock and many members of the team are looking forward to returning socially in the not too distant future.”
“Hodsock in all its glory is the perfect venue to inspire discussion and creativity,”
