“We try to make a game out of certain things. Like coming up with a fun name forthe office like the ‘Pig Pen’ that is used on walkie-talkies. Orduring set-up, we bring an iPod and speakers. Things can be way too quiet in a convention centerlate at night.”


“I post signs around the war room. Some are silly, fun sayings that have come from past events and/or motivational messages. I also leave short notes of thanks at their work area each morning prior to their arrival.”


“Letting them vent about things that are going on that day. Reinforcing the fact that people getting emotional on site is not the measure of them as a human being. We have to keep things in perspective.”


“After a large event I give staff a ‘Derrière Repair’ certificate that must be used within a week or two of the event. This makes them take time off and re-energize.”


TREATS! Nearly 67 percent keep special snacks on site to keep the energy level high—everything from healthy trail mix to chocolate, ice cream, and protein and granola bars.
