What are the keys to an effective meeting? Well in our opinion it comes down to 4 key factors:
1) Location or Environment – An inspiring location will invigorate your teams creativity during your meeting. Meeting spaces with access to outdoor space or grounds is definitely a plus for your meeting. Many studies have proven that incorporating the outdoors or an outdoor activity inspires creativity, energizes the attendees and provides an element of thinking outside the box for your meetings curriculum or agenda. Natural light in the meeting space itself also energizes the attendees and keeps them focused.
2) Quality Food and Beverage and Breaks – Keep your group energized with healthy choices during the day. Stay away from high sugar and carbohydrate breaks. These types of foods will provide a short boost of energy but you will see the energy crash in the room very shortly after this which can lead to an unproductive meeting. Ensure that you provide your meeting attendees adequate break times. You can only keep someone’s active attention for 1 ½ to 2 hours. Ways to energize your attendees during breaks is provide massages or hand massages during the break. This will show your attendees that you care about their stress level, add an element of uniqueness to the meeting and it will energize your team to be creative.
3) Break-out Rooms – If your group is relatively large (20-65 guests or more) Break out rooms provide attendees to get out of their element. A change of location for a focus group gets your blood flowing and the mind moving. Consider using the space around your meeting rooms or another meeting room to foster creativity.
4) Be prepared – It is important to prepare yourself and your attendees for what can be expected.
Providing an agenda to your attendees prior to the meeting will enable them to understand the goals of the meeting. This can remove a sense of doubt from the attendees minds and will show them that you are prepared. It also allows the facilitator to hit the ground running as soon as the meeting begins.
The Glenerin Inn & Spa is an ideal location for your meeting for all of these reasons. Our sales team can provide you with options for unique energizing space and give you unique options for breaks and ideas to energize the meeting. Click here to view our meeting rooms.

As the leaves begin to change color, then fall from the trees it can only mean one thing. It’s fall…and halloween is coming. With all the ghosts and ghouls coming out on October 31st (to collect trick or treat from households everywhere) a legendary Mississauga Hotel, the Glenrin Inn and Spa boasts a ghost story that goes far beyond pillowcases full of candy.
The Inn was built between 1927 and finished in the 1930′s and was a grand summer home for the wealthy Watson family living in Rosedale. The summer home, nestled in the beautiful Sawmill Creek Valley in Mississauga was built for entertaining, but shortly after being completed, Watson passed away (and was buried nearby). Over the next 70 years the property would change hands several times being used for a variety of things, including a monestary, a retreat and a sales office.
Over those years there have also been many reports of ghost sitings, the most common one of a man tending the fireplace in the great hall. A clairvoyant visited the property in the 1990′s and noted that there was a spirit present. Since then, the Glenerin Inn has been visited by many ghost hunters including the show “Ghosts of Mississauga”. We have included them below for your viewing pleasure.
