East Seattle Meetings: Tips on How to Create Productive Brainstorming Sessionsphoto

A convenient location for any Seattle area meeting or event, the Woodmark Hotel on Lake Washington is only seven miles east of Seattle and minutes from bordering eastside communities of Redmond and Bellevue.  With over 9,000 square feet of flexible indoor-outdoor meeting and event space, the Woodmark provides a variety of settings to accommodate the perfect brainstorming session. We’ve found the following tips on planning a productive meeting or conference can lead to achieving high engagement and overall success.

Tips on How to Create a Productive Brainstorming Session:

  • Planning & Preparation: Outline goals of the brainstorming session and share with participants prior to gathering. Clearly define the purpose and encourage new perspectives.
  • Get Inspired: With floor-to-ceiling windows and the added bonus of natural light, the Woodmark’s stunning views of Lake Washington that expand across to a clear view of the Olympic Mountains is nothing less than miraculous. Participants can clear their minds and gain that fresh perspective that is important for a productive meeting.
  • Create a Stimulating Environment: With group settings it is important for attendees to feel comfortable and eliminate any fear or intimidation. In large correlation to the tone and overall goals of the meeting, crafting a more creative environment can be encouraged with soft seating and relaxed meeting space. At the Woodmark, learn more about upgraded seating options to achieve the perfect casual setting for your next meeting in Kirkland, Washington.
  • Provide Brain Food: Boost brainpower by offering your attendees a variety of selections from Woodmark’s Catering Services. We can provide local, fresh options that include fruit, nuts, berries and whole grains. We can also supply a fair amount of coffee and juice to stimulate and support creative thinking.
