Move More Meetings

A walking meeting is just as easy to hold as a sitting meeting; but has many more benefits. Walking meetings offer:

  • A chance to fit in some physical activity
  • A different environment to inspire new ideas and creativity
  • A change in group dynamics
  • A opportunity to get some fresh air and re-energize

Walking Meeting tips

  • Walking meetings work best with 2-5 people
  • Walk at a comfortable pace for everyone and wear athletic shoes when possible
  • Immediately following the walking meeting write down key points and tasks
  • Keep a spare pair of walking shoes and socks at the office for spontaneous meetings
