Walking meetings are the way to go
Walking meetings are becoming more and more popular, but do they increase productivity like many claim? And are walking meetings good for creativity? We walk around stunning Tiong Bahru and explore what walking meetings are, when they work and share some tips of how to use them during your next meeting.
Some benefits of walking meetings include:
IT’S A NICE BREATHER FROM AN OFTEN STUFFY WORK PLACE
A bit of fresh air. Soak up some vitamin D. Stretch those limbs. Give your eyes a rest from that screen. Just stepping out for a change of scene does miracles.
OUTSIDE IS A GREAT SOURCE OF INSPIRATION
The environment has a massive impact on how you feel and is a great source of inspiration. No wonder that if you put the same people in the same dull room, they will often come up with the same old stuff.

Walking side by side has a different feel and energy to it than sitting down at a table where one person stands at the front and speaks. Reminds us a bit of school, where we had to sit and listen to what our teachers had to say. We are not at eye level, so it instantly implies a hierarchy of some sort. Walking puts people at a similar level.
