You're not in a (dark) hotel ballroom ... thinking, 'Here we go again.'"
Speakers have access to amenities on cruise ships you might not otherwise be able to afford for a retreat-- nightly entertainment, happy hours, floral arrangements, audio/visual equipment, and personally chosen meals rather than preplanned banquet platters.
CNN quotes-"Imagine sitting at a conference roundtable and being able to look out on the turquoise sea for inspiration. At lunch, you steal away to sunbathe on deck. That night, after a featured speaker presentation, you'll watch a cabaret. Tomorrow, you'll spend a few hours on Grand Cayman.

Here are five stress-control tips you can begin implementing today:
1) Make contingency plans. Accept that you can't control everything, and take charge of the things you can - have a backup plan to your "Plan B".
2) Get your 40 winks! Studies show a strong link between insomnia and chronic stress. Experts recommend going to bed at a regular time each night, striving for at least seven to eight hours of sleep and eliminating distractions such as television and computers from the bedroom.
3) Get active. Physical activity increases your body's production of feel-good endorphins, a type of neurotransmitter in the brain. Better yet, get out in the fresh air - a brisk walk will do the trick.
4) Be prepared. Don't leave details to the last minute, and secure all agreements in writing.
5) Breathe deep. Take a relaxation break and practice some deep breathing or mindfulness meditation. It will calm your nerves, refresh your mind, and help you stay present and focused.

And finally, we leave you with these wise words from the late, great Dr. Pearsall:
Remember why you do what you do. Business meetings serve as a major avenue for learning, connecting, rewarding, and celebrating the work that we do.
Meeting planners are the deans of this unique corporate curriculum, and their stress can be reduced by taking more moments to stop, take a deep breath, and just watch as attendees learn something new, connect in the ways they so dearly need but too seldom do, and enjoy the wonderful opportunity you have created for them."
