A Getaway to Get Work Done


Posted By Kaitlyn Myers | Feb 27, 2015


It’s always about this time of year that I start planning a vacation. Especially with all this snow in Massachusetts…don’t even get me started. Such cold, dreary weather can take a lot out of a person.

Taking vacations can be taxing on organizations, but are crucial for the health of a workforce. People need a break. One thing many people have been doing more frequently is working while on vacation. Just being away can be enough of a break. Inc. wrote about benefits of business travel last fall, CNNMoney wrote about the trend towards “work-cationing”, and even just a few weeks ago there was a New York Times article about co-working on vacation

The problem is, work-cations are often just vacations that feel like work. They aren’t as relaxing as you anticipated them to be, and so you can feel cheated out of your trip. What you want instead is work that feels like a vacation. Learning and growing and providing clear value for your company, but in a way that isn’t stressful and allows you to experience things you wouldn't be able to in the office. Conferences in particular are perfect for networking with peers, finding out about the best and latest in practices and innovations, and learning new skills and methods that can benefit your company.

Our 2015 Connect Conference is exactly all that. This year we’ll be in San Antonio – a perfect place to get away for a working spring break. The conference has more sessions than ever before to help you get the most out of Qvidian Sales Playbooks and Qvidian Proposal Automation, with a full day of hands-on training and customer case studies from organizations that have already seen success and want to share what they've learned.

There’s even a special workshop with Dr. Tom Sant after the main conference.
