Corporate get-togethers get a reboot with experience meetings.
Have you heard of boxing bouts before a business meeting? Radisson Blu Hotel GRT’s EXP (short for experience) sessions do exactly that. Besides a warm-up boxing session, corporate meetings here are also interspersed with games, painting on canvases, and a live cooking station at lunch where chefs teach you techniques of folding and making homemade pasta and sushi. There is even an express spa experience—all directed towards keeping your mind and body energised and active for your work schedule. Speaking about the concept, which was officially launched last week, senior general manager, Sasikumar U, says it is the first of its kind in the country.
“Today the world is all about people who want everything in short forms. So we coined this word (EXP). There are a lot of surprise elements in this concept,” he says. Ideally designed as a day-long programme, and for up to 60 participants, expect five boxing instructors teaching six basic moves with background music and a break out room where you can play games such as golf and throwball, in addition to an Oscar Wilde-themed game using masks. The idea is to make sure the participants use “both the left and the right side of the brain” and come out of the whole experience “refreshed and rejuvenated”.
