How to Prevent Burnout When Planning Virtual Events

 

I was a sales leader in events for over a decade and I loved what I did, who I did it with and who I did it for. I was a success - but one day I woke up and it felt like everything changed.

 

A few years ago, somehow the career I had spent years building became something I felt trapped by. The team I’d built endlessly frustrated me and I resented them. The work I loved and brought me so much happiness left me feeling… nothing.

 

Have you ever had a moment like that? Perhaps a season like that? Are you feeling worn down like that right now? I get it - and I didn’t know it at the time, but I was burning out.

Individual Incentive Travel Programmes – A New Opportunity

By Custom Ireland, a DMC Network Company

 

Research proves that the value of incentive travel experiences outweighs that of cash or merchandise when it comes to motivating and inspiring members of your team.

The Passions Behind the People

By Dan Tavrytzky, Managing Director of the DMC Network

 

The memory...

The birth of our two sons…Jacob and Brayden.  While they are now both young men (24 and 21), it seems like just yesterday we were bringing them home from the hospital…how time flies!

 

The time of day...

In the morning when the sun has just risen and it’s quiet and still and just the chirp of the birds are noticed.

 

The activity…

I love being outdoors…hiking, biking, skiing, or on the tennis court or golf course, it’s a true joy and make me feel alive!

 

The smell…

Driving 2-hours north to the mountains of Arizona and opening the car window and getting that first whiff of pine trees…glorious!

Introducing New Experiences To Our Lives

 

By Dan Tavrytzky, Managing Director of the DMC Network

 

When we talk about wellbeing, it’s often in relation to making time to do the things that we love, and exposing ourselves to new experiences, and we all know that, in the world we are living in now, it is more important than ever before to continue to prioritise this part of our lives.  CoVid19 has changed not only the current face of the meetings, events and incentives industry, but the very core of how we operate in our personal lives day-to-day.

 

The DMC Network decided to look at ways to continue to connect with our industry, but in a way that would be meaningful and relevant to the times that we are living in.

Wellness in a time of Extreme Change

 

The last three months have brought about a level of change that most of us will never have experienced in our lives before. CoVid has not only changed the way that we work, it has effected every facet of our lives – from the way that we shop for groceries, to how we interact with friends and family. While much of the world is now coming into various stages of opening and adjusting to a new way of live, we are by no means returning to what would have been normal for us when 2020 began.

 

Change can make the best of us anxious, and our wellbeing is something that can so easily be effected with this anxiety.

 

Because most working professionals spend a third of their time at work (a frightening statistic in itself!) the workplace is an important place to address wellbeing that is often overlooked.
