A good meeting is a meeting in which the participants are actually allowed to participate and do not just listen.
With Meetovation you can move away from one-way communication by involving and engaging participants. The result is better learning and understanding, and greater long-term benefits.

- Participants get more out of the meeting if they are involved in the process. When participants feel that the meeting has been valuable, it is valuable to you as the meeting owner as well. You will achieve a higher ROI.
- We receive much better feedback from participants on participatory meetings than from meetings with one-way communication.
Active involvement makes meetings more valuable because:
- It helps you make better decisions
- It increases network and knowledge sharing
- It engages and motivates participants
- Be inspired and learn new techniques on how to involve your participants in your meeting by using some of the tangible evidence shows below.
Below are a number of tools and inspirational ideas for meeting planners who want to incorporate active involvement in meetings.

The absolute best way in which we can acquire knowledge, is when we teach others and we share our experiences with others. The more you let participants interact with each other during the meeting, the more likely it will be for participants to go home with useful knowledge.
It can be challenging to maintain the motivation of meeting participants - especially if it is a long day. When you plan a meeting it is, therefore, a good idea to think about how you can create a framework that helps maintain the engagement of your participants.
It is more often the rule than the exception that engagement and active involvement are perceived as natural parts of a meeting. However, this does not mean that participant involvement has become trivial to talk about. Even though a meeting may intend to engage participants, physical conditions can make this impossible.
The exercises provide good energy and a ‘YES’-feeling. Additionally, they teach participants the importance of good communication, flow, transfer of information and cooperation. Participants learn to strengthen communication and cooperation in their teams by using efficient tools and exercises.
