|Playing Golf at E-Conference|
Many companies in many different industries today encourage their workers to attend conferences. This may be to keep them up to date with the latest information or the newest advances in related technology. Some industries are more likely to have regular conferences than others, due to being more intertwined with technological changes or having to adapt more readily to different industry trends. One such industry that always has to adapt and change in relation to technological advances is the broad term industry of engineering
Engineering is defined as the discipline and profession of applying technical and scientific knowledge in order to design or build something. That something could be anything from a process to a structure, from a design to a machine. Engineering can come in many different flavours, from electrical to chemical engineering as well as many more abstract fields like software and even audio engineering.
All of the sub strands of engineering are similar in that they are all involved in technology, and are always having to adapt to the constant changes within the technological knowledge stream. One of the things that this means for the average engineer are work related conferences and lots of them. Although engineering conference can often be a dry and uninteresting place to be, there are always some benefits if you know where to look for them.
Playing a round of golf would be one of the most popular things for people to to do when they are attending a work related conference, and golf and engineers seem to get on like a house on fire. Most conference timetables will allow you some time off from the rigours of lectures and seminars, and what better way could there be to fill this time than a round of golf with your work colleagues. Golf too is linked with advances in technology, which is maybe one reason why engineers seem so partial to the game. Equipment manufacturers like Callaway and Mizuno are always looking for ways to advance their products with the help of new and improved designs and materials.
Golf balls and golf clubs are often undergoing subtle changes in order for players to make the very most of their game, it really is paradise for those amongst us that love our gadgets. Players can spend a lot of money making sure they have got the latest woods and putters in order for their game to be as good as it possibly can be. And of course it is so much fun when you get to indulge in the latest and greatest golfing equiptment.
Playing a game of golf at an engineering conference may be the most exciting thing that you do for the entire time you are away. To be honest, conferences are not just about the knowledge you receive or the contacts that you can make. Conferences are also about team building and good old fashioned relaxation. Playing a round of golf with your work colleagues can really bring you closer together as a team, and as long as you don’t get too worked up about that hook shot you made on the 4th hole, it can be incredibly relaxing as well.
