Let there be light

By Stephanie Ellrott, head of venues at RIBA Venues, London We’ve all been subjected to that awful conference nightmare when we are stuck in a dark room with only PowerPoint and coffee to keep us awake. Eight hours in this dark room, with a small break for lunch and by the end of the day we feel zapped of energy, and usually creativity, for the darkness has made us want to hibernate. Working at a venue that has natural daylight in all of our meeting rooms, it got me thinking about the importance of natural daylight for successful meetings.
