Your team building doesn't have to be a series of soon forgotten, ho-hum Power Points and a "rubber chicken" meal. You can make the meeting, and the material presented, memorable for the long term by introducing an entertaining theme to wrap the education in.
The show must go on! You want your employees to be real troupers each and every day. This theme was geared towards bringing all the employees of a multi-market practice together under one "big tent" to create cohesion between all offices.
When change, whether it's internal or industry related, is on the horizon employees must embrace the new frontier. With an onslaught of regulatory changes, this enterprise needed to bring home the knowledge that their employees are not alone and that strong and steady leadership was in place to support them in their mission.
For the 16th anniversary of themed team building meetings for these cool cats, we decided to go all out on Sweet 16 We created 4 different "50's style environments for the various areas of the meeting: General session room was a high school gym dance, the lunch room was transformed into a diner—complete with "soda fountain," juke boxes, black and white tiled floor. The exhibit hall was turned into a drive in movie theater with 1950's movies projected, popcorn and sodas, seating was an actual 1957 Chevy sofa, with a vintage drive in movie speaker attached.

These three business owners share family roots, even though each of their practices are individually owned. They trace their common history back to Memphis, when the first Snell practice was opened in 1911. That same year, their trade association's national convention was held in Las Vegas. As an event within the trade show, we brought in bionic "Elvis" and showgirls, served champagne and logo'ed treats, celebratory signage and more.
This practice is pulling out all the stops on providing education to PTs, which are an important referral source. One of the best attention getters is earning approved continuing education hours. We coordinated all the materials needed and submitted the seminar for approved CEs, handled the sales and marketing, on-site support and follow up to ensure CEs were properly submitted to ensue that attendees received credit. We are working with the practice as they continue to hold these types of seminars on a regular basis.
We can get your practice in front of your referral sources and take care of al the needs surrounding a successful in-service that will support your brand, while not appearing "commercial".
