Forget game night. Forget LAN parties. And certainly forget paintball and laser tag.
If you want to put a new spin on training, team building — or even event marketing — try organizing a “Webinar Night” for friends, colleagues and Tweeps. Of course, you’ll want to name it something more fun and inviting than that — maybe something with “Lounge” in it — but the premise is simple. Curate a playlist of webinars and videos you’ve seen/liked or have been “meaning to” watch (e.g. TechShow Ignite and TED Conference presentations on YouTube) then have them play while you socialize, converse or create your own version of internet meme karaoke.
Note to lawyers: If you play your cards right, you might even be able to work a CLE angle into the evening.
