We are enjoying the most spectacular weather, which got us feeling active and outdoorsy. This reminded us of a particular conference in the field of sports that we recently attended in Lausanne, Switzerland. City Sports brings together leaders in the Global Sports arena and the cities that bid for these events. Waiting for one early morning meeting to start, seated in the usual uncomfortable chairs, we were ready to doze off in the way that you only do when you are terribly jetlagged and short of sleep. Suddenly, a young trainer takes stage and leads us all into a rigorous warming up session. As we flailed our arms and tried to squat awkwardly in our stilettos and skirts, we had the realization that this is the most awake and focused we have been at any conference. We we were also starting the day with a good giggle.
This brings us to our inspiration of the week, a little TED talk by Ms. Nilofer Merchant, who encourages us all to Walk and Talk.
At MESH we had discussions about how we could energize the next meeting we plan. We were inspired to brainstorm – while walking – to spring the next conference into action.
