Sequester those mobile devices...and you may score a free lunch.
Now you're listening, eh?
For years delegates were told to NOT use their phones during meetings/events.
Then came the years of encouraging the use of such tech during meetings/events.
Surely, we can all agree that there are certain instances in which mobile devices should not be used at all (in order to concentrate, convey respect, etc.), such as a formal dinner. (Though I know I've cherished my phone as a dear escape during one or two boring meals.)
How would your delegates respond if at your next group dinner all mobile devices were ordered into a communal, don't-touch pile?
The catch with such a plan, as presented here, is that the first person to grab frantically at the buzzing bowl of bits has to pay the check!
I say mute your device and enjoy the meal.
