With the holiday season in full swing, many business leaders are keeping one eye on their holiday to-do list and another on ensuring their company gets off to a great start in the new year. At Roam, we’re here to help organize and craft a 2020 Kick Off Meeting that will spark momentum amongst your team while ensuring you have plenty of time to enjoy reindeers games and decking the halls.

Dedicating time to come together as a collective and share company values, objectives, goals and upcoming launches re-aligns your team towards a shared focus and approach for the new year. However, a great agenda will only take you so far. To fully leverage this opportunity to kick things off on the right foot, it’s imperative that your meeting’s overall experience matches your forward-thinking content.

The New Year is almost upon us, so the time to plan is now! Here are a few tips to plan a successful Kickoff Meeting in the New Year.


Get Creative

Make creativity a New Year’s resolution for your entire team. January is the perfect time to take a product or service to the next level or brainstorm new ways to add value to your customer’s experience.

To set the tone for creativity in the new year, book your 2020 kickoff meeting at Roam. We have all the technology and creative features you’ll need to ignite a next-level brainstorming session. At Roam, your meeting room rental includes whiteboard space, high definition audio visual equipment, conference phones, web cams and comfortable seating, as well as all the sticky notes, dry erase markers, flip charts and painter’s tape you might need to engage your team members.

Keep Attendees Fueled and Focused

It’s hard to work on an empty stomach. Work with your personal Roam meeting coordinator to craft a menu that fuels your team members and enhances their focus.

With menus that accommodate a variety of preferences and dietary restrictions, choose from a tasty array of culinary choices for breakfast, lunch, snacks and hors d’oeuvres. Whether you prefer individually boxed lunches or a create your own trail mix or popcorn bar, we can work with you to create a personalized dining experience that will excite your team and further productivity.


To improve brainstorming and the creative process, structure your Kickoff Meeting to allow team members to breakout into smaller groups throughout the day.

Breakout sessions are a great way to maximize collaborative efforts and foster engagement amongst all team members. Breakout sessions create a more welcoming environment for the sharing of thoughts and ideas and improve content retention. Rather than simply absorbing information from a team leader or presenter, these engagements allow employees to take an active role in the meeting by applying teachings immediately in a small group setting.

Roam offers a variety of smaller onsite conference rooms that are perfectly suited for breakout sessions and can be added onto your meeting room booking. These meeting rooms offer the same whiteboard space and HD display capabilities in an environment more suited for small group discussions.

Surprise and Delight

They say it’s the little things that make the difference. The same can be said in the workplace.

Something as simple as a laptop sticker to commemorate a new company milestone or a surprise delivery of warm cookies and milk could be all it takes to put a smile on the faces of your meeting attendees. At Roam, we specialize in creating unique experiences to help you celebrate your team and their successes. Just let us know what your team is celebrating, and we’ll be here to help.
