Online Engagement: made for morale
It’s a powerful but challenging new medium for successful events. As we all continue to adapt to online group interaction becoming a component (if not all) of our professional and even life events, the challenge to organizers is how to make events meaningful and memorable through computer monitors. We’ve all sat through hundreds of Zoom meetings since the pandemic hit, and we’ve all, ironically, experienced the sense of distance and isolation that bad online meetings can create: blank faces, attendees suddenly getting up and walking way for 5 minutes, 5 people talking at the same time.
Our online games add that focus and energy that brings online guests together. What this event component brings back into meetings is the playfulness, engagement and fun that got sucked out when we all went online. We are very proud of of ability to reconnect workmates and professional teams that really need a shot of morale.
We can create any game, with any theme and deliver a memorable online event – but here are some of the popular ones:
POP TRIVIA GAME SHOWS
We can challenge your group with pop trivia from any decade you want – or a mix of any decades you want. Your guests aren’t linking their cellphones up to a game playing app for some dry multiple choice questions. Each question is carefully designed with a raft of sound effects, photos, animated graphics, audio and video clips to create an entertaining visual show that inevitably gets players singing and even dancing along. Hosted by Mike or one of many hilarious character game show host options.
REAL PUB TRIVIA
We don’t just bring you the game – we bring you the whole pub through your Ethernet cable, complete with Scottish pub owner “Hamish MacDuff”. With teams being whisked off to breakout rooms to discuss each challenging (but entertaining) question, this offering maximizes meaningful interaction among your workmates, along with great comedy moments in the main pub room…and some clever customization that will delight your guests.
THE BOB ROSS PICTIONARY PARTY
It’s a simple idea made great. Pictionary using the Zoom whiteboard. Make sure your staff have snack and drinks ready to go, as they get to meet “Bob Ross” web cam to web cam. They’ll be grooving on his chill 70’s vibe and making pictures that are just hilariously awesome. The key to this solid social re-connector is the extra layer of comedy our host throws into the mix – breaking the ice and getting work friends connecting again.
THE VIRTUAL TROPICAL BEACH STAY-CATION PARTY
When was the last time you went on a beach vacation? Yeah, that’s a raw nerve, isn’t it? Thank god we can all use are imaginations – and Captain Furling makes sure your entire work team is visualizing this wonderful fantasy at the same time. His yacht has been chartered to take you all to a tropical paradise for a party on the beach. This 60-90 minute morale boost is packed with vacation themed trivia rounds, a cabana wear competition, the sights and sounds of the beach – and a raft of options to add on, including raffle draws, a salsa dance-off and a tropical drink pit-stop. This gorgeous bit of make-belief is guaranteed to help your crew make it through the month.
