“Theater is essentially a relationship between performer, spectator, and the space in which both come together.”
Gay McAuley, Honorary Professor, Department of Performance Studies, University of Sydney

If you have ever attended a concert, play or any artistic performance, you know that the stage space and how it is used is a critical component to the outcome of the act. There is a connection between how the performer(s) use the space and the overall experience for the audience members. This begs the question: Is it the same in business for any meeting or presentation? I contend the answer is yes. In fact, I believe you can even rewrite the quote above to read: “The meeting is essentially a relationship between leader, participant and the space in which both come together.”
