The 4 Rs of Meetings

In the meeting planning industry there are four Rs that apply to every aspect of your events from the pre-planning to the final outcomes.

  1. Relationships – Act on the relationships that are a part of your network.
  2. Relevancy –  Reassess the resources, energy and attention spent on the experience to measure their relevancy.
  3. Reflection – Take the time to engage in personal and organizational reflection.
  4. Readjustment – Ask yourself these questions to increase effectiveness:   1.  What have I learned about myself that I would be wise to carry forward?  2.  What have we learned about our work together that we would be wise to carry forward?

I believe these four principles are vital in our meeting planning efforts.
