'Virtually Well' Online Meetings Enhanced With Sensory Modalities: Mindfulness, Live Music, Real Time Art, Movement, Aromatherapy, & More

Aids in Keeping Focused and Making Smarter Decisions

USA, Austin, Texas. March 31, 2020

Thanks to the Coronavirus pandemic, businesses are now being forced to do all their meetings virtually. Familiar tools like Skype, WebEx, GoToMeeting and Zoom have abruptly become lifelines. With business leaders being called on to make vitally important decisions more quickly and insightfully each day, they're now faced with all the problems of real-world meetings being compounded by having to meet with their teams virtually. S'Well Public Relations, a firm specializing in wellness enterprises, is using their expertise in the mindfulness arena to create a "best practices protocol" for not just healthier but more effective online meetings. Using some of the unique meeting facilitation tools that are the hallmark of the agency's signature creative process, Strategic Visioning Launch Pad, as well as pulling from their vast network of wellness leaders, S'Well is launching a free webinar to teach ways to use sensory modalities - such as live music, real time graphic facilitation, movement and mindfulness - to help make your virtual meetings as effective and engaging as possible. Interested companies can also enlist S'Well's all-star team to facilitate their upcoming meetings.

Bonus: these lessons - taught by a team of experts who have worked with Fortune 500 companies over two decades - can carry through the other side of the pandemic to continue to make business meetings more effective and yes, even healthy!

The S'Well "Recipe Book for Virtually Well Meetings™" Webinar, sponsored by LIVE LOVE SPA will be offered FREE via Zoom, on Thursday, April 2, 2020 at 11 am PST. To RSVP, please email info@swellpublicrelations.com.

"Each business has a meeting culture when they're together in person. Typically, dominant personalities and louder voices prevail," explains S'Well co-founder, Darlene Fiske. "Whether it's conscious or not, most meetings follow the same format - a friend told me he fell asleep on a call last week and that his company is having Zoom meetings just to have face time and make sure people aren't slacking off. Meaning a whole lot of unproductivity and wasted time."

"Unfortunately, remote meetings tend to compound all the problems of real-world meetings," says S'Well Co-Founder, Kim Marshall. "As a recent article in The Boston Globe pointed out, this issue that can be even worse in a virtual meeting as participants become passive, disengaged, and multi-task, letting the Big Dogs have their run of the Zoom Room. Now more than ever businesses need meetings that enhance effectiveness with an all-mindful-hands-on deck approach. S'Well can help."

Hotel Design: Home Away From Home

With the rise of the sharing economy and the peer-to-peer marketplace for lodging options, hoteliers are re-thinking the look, feel and appeal of their locations. There is an emphasis on re-creating a feeling of homeyness - a comfortable, cozy and inviting space that feels like home. 'This is accomplished through the careful selection of furniture design, paint colors, lighting design, artwork, bathroom fixtures and textile accessories. In addition, some hotels are providing their guests with upscale amenities, such as a book and movie library, home-style kitchenettes, a coffee machine with locally-sourced beans and tea, or even a batch of fresh-baked cookies. Similarly, there is a growing design trend based on the concept of place-making. Travelers are searching for experiences that are unique and authentic to the locale in which they find themselves, and so hotel designers are integrating a sense of place into their work. This is partially achieved by incorporating traditional artisanal crafts and other local artwork into hotel rooms and communal spaces. Another design trend includes the creation of full-service, co-working environments within the hotel. Guests don't like to stay alone in their room when they need to work, so now they can go downstairs to the lobby-or up to the roof-to work among others. These areas encourage guests - and non-guests alike - to stay as long as they like and to partake of hotel amenities. Finally, recognizing the importance of the Wellness Movement, some designers are exploring how room design can increase the likelihood of deep and restorative sleep. Creating dark and quiet spaces, blocking excessive light, providing guests with a selection of different kinds of pillows, and the ability to control room temperature, are a few of the best practices in this area. These are some of the architecture and design topics that will be covered in the November issue of the Hotel Business Review.
