2016 Hot Summer Reads

By Stephanie Purcell | Jun 22, 2016

Summer is finally upon us and brings opportunities to do things that we don’t get to do the rest of the year. Things like reading a book at the beach; reading a book in a hammock; reading a book on a sunny deck. I’m feeling ready to soak up some rays and soak up some knowledge too! My #1 read has got to be #AskGaryVee. I’ll be honest, I’m in a bit of debate whether I’m purchasing the book or the audio book because I LOVE a good Gary rant!

Survival of the Fittest, not the Fastest

By Kimberley King | Jun 15, 2016

Pause for thought. It's a common saying. We talk about an idea or a happening that gives us 'pause for thought.' But how often do we really pause?

We are running at a frantic pace. But it doesn’t have to be that way. The slow movement first appeared on the culinary front with the 'slow food' movement. But it’s spreading – to slow cities, slow education, slow travel... slow living. So why not Slow Meetings?

By Stephanie Purcell | May 18, 2016

Surfing through a recent Meetings Canada magazine I was drawn into an article called “Sound & Light – How AV Elevates Events”. It was also fun to see an array of Event Planners our team at LimeLight have worked with throughout the article. In the business of live events, the key to success so often depends on well executed sound and lighting. To me, the sound guy (or gal) is the most important person in the room. They can easily make or break an event, all with the touch of a button.

Mindful or Mind Full?

By Kimberley King | Apr 27, 2016

Being mindful. It’s something that has my curiosity these days. The more I read, the more intrigued I become. I have started a practice of 10 minutes of meditation each day. Using "Headspace” as my guide, I have embarked on a journey to create space. And I’m loving it. Being mindful is really about paying attention to what’s happening in the present, allowing things to be as they are, letting go and not passing judgement.

It’s great to hear an audience rave about Merge Gupta-Sunderji but it’s also not a surprise. I finally got to meet Merge in person a few months ago at a national conference.

No Joke, Speakers Can Also Be Funny!

By Stephanie Purcell | Mar 18, 2016

Quality humour adds a great dose of entertainment to your event. Humour boosts learning, trust, energy, memory and optimism for attendees. And in particular, well-placed humour can be a powerful tool for engaging with your audience. An article from The Meeting Professional, NO JOKE, states that humour increases memory and long term retrieval, and can capture the attention of people who are easily bored and inattentive.

By Kimberley King | Mar 14, 2016

You can find all kinds of speaker options on the internet right? Yes. But a great speaker is good before, during and after a presentation. A great speaker does their homework. They are easy to deal with and passionate and authentic about how they approach their audience. They are low maintenance and they deliver high value.
