Why do messages so rarely stick? Why aren't meetings more engaging? When did meetings become lectures? Maybe there is a better way of doing it?

“I’ve been working in the events industry for 15 years and have never come across anything as powerful as the Green Hat People product offerings.
The team building activities were easily sold from the start and the more advanced products, especially the business games, are attracting a lot of attention and are proving to be easily sold and wonderfully simple to adapt and deliver.
