Move Their Bodies, Move Their Minds: An Exercise in Creative Brainstorming

This Program addresses how companies design workspaces and how replicating that design in meeting spaces adds movement to a program, elevates the attendee’s retention of knowledge and retention of your programs, and offers positive health implications.

We apply these concepts and execute a brainstorming session with Netwalking. This90-minute program involves physical activity (walking) within a creative room layout and design elements.
