INTERACTIVE BUSINESS GAME How to make an interesting and riveting happening out of an ordinary corporate event, while effectively operating it eliminating all the unexpected turns? Here are just some of our proposals: Take the initiative. Give the participants an opportunity to make it on their own, without guidance or looking up to the instructors. Let them realize that their success depends on no one but them! Appreciate the importance of the mission. Let the participants to be really engrossed into this «alternative reality». Challenges are connected by the general outlines of the script: the mission is not a complex of isolated exercises, but a cohesive enthralling story. Keep the tempo. Don’t sit back and do nothing! To limber participants up a bit, we have some challenges involving the search for «check points». Don’t lose control. Follow the course of the competition online. We can «prod» the lagging or help the doubting without even leaving the HQ. Full statistics on teams’ actions will be available after the event as well; each team receives individual «game report» for further review. Share your story. Each team has an opportunity to present the results of their actions at the after party and tell the others about them and their mission. Our own interactive platform is designed specifically in order to help us to prepare and conduct an event of any sort, following those tips. iPads at participants’ disposal «navigate» the teams, inform them of their challenges and control their accomplishments, provide the supervision and instant feedback. Challenges may involve search for «coded» objects on the hotel grounds or indoors, answering questions, photo or video reports, drawing pictures, interacting with other teams etc. Participants might undertake some interesting route, take the lead and bring their talents to light and overall solidify as a close-knit team. At appointed hour, we gather the participants for a brief coaching. Team captains receive their iPads each, then return to their respective teams and press «Start» button. On-screen «anchorman» address the team straight from the deice, announcing team’s first mission, so far just warming team up a bit. Participants use it to get accustomed with the interface, using all sorts of clues: compass, map, trivia. Later on, those clues will have to be «paid» for, therefore participants will think twice before acquiring the «compass», taking care of their prize points.

ENGINEERING BUREAU «It won’t work», «It won’t fly» – we are joking skeptically about the projects of our co-workers. Today it will! It will work, go or fly, depending on the script of your choice. Some serious engineering work is waiting ahead. Imitating an execution of an order «turn-key ready» will help you to get a feel of a working pulse of your organization. For instance, today our participants will have to construct and demonstrate in action a vehicle, capable of moving and even carrying a passenger. Players split into teams 8 to 10 members each, upon which teams receive an envelope containing a complex assignment. The assignment includes customer’s «portrait» of sorts, and list of properties produced vehicle should exhibit. Creative assignment as a core of a spectacular event Step 1. Find the assets. First players will undergo some field trips, participating in various interactive contests and earning the «currency» to purchase components for the vehicle, tools or instructions. Step 2. Purchase. «Purchase coordinators» from each team will then acquire all the necessary details, tools and expendables at our improvised market. Details and components can be categorized according to the company values, or specifics of the product, business part of your event was dedicated to, e.g.: Flexibility. Take some unusual object and make up some interesting way to use it as a detail for your vehicle. Safety. Secure the vehicle with any of the suggested measures, or offer one yourself. You just have to describe it properly! Image. Don’t forget about tuning. Decorate your vehicle as much as far your imagination goes. Power. After all, your vehicle should be drivable. The more powerful will be assets that put it in motion – and those are not necessarily your legs – the more successful your project will end up to be.
Exercising: Unlocking creativity. Drilling presentation and project managing skills. Covert feedback, analysis of priorities and associative arrays. Introduction to the corporate mission and values, through the project exercised following the requests of a typical customer. Transport company. You will not only build a lorry, but also fight for the license, and then compete with your co-workers in shipping various cargos (sand bags, water cistern, oversize cargo, whimsy passenger) the fastest and the safest. In the frames this mission, participants of various events had been building drill fixtures, fairytale carriages, and even… outer space branches of their companies! Step 3. Constructing. Teams design, construct, decorate and test-drive their vehicles. There is the full-scale exhibition of their managing skills, workload distribution and cooperating inside a team. All those qualities, combined with exuberant imagination of newly appointed engineers result in fantastic outcome! Step 4. Parade. Hailed with a round of applause, one by one, vehicles go on their marks and go through test-drive. Over the improvised conference, team captains will then answer the questions about the usage of peculiar things and devices, and also explain how the client’s assignment was accomplished. This type of event can be held outdoors as well as indoors. We always make sure to make it a success: in advance we prepare a proper «chassis» for the vehicle to go as smooth as possible. Other then vehicles, you can choose to construct following objects: City and city buildings of functional purpose («perfect pharmacy», «office of the future», «dream city»).

SECRET INGREDIENT OF SUCCESS Imagine a few hundreds of people who are gathered at some raw outdoor space. What to occupy them with? How to make such event an unforgettable one? We have a solution and we are happy to share it with you. Every company has its own recipe of success, but to make it work you need that very special and unique ingredient. Which ingredient is that, out participants will find out through making an unusual panel picture. What about it, you ask? Divided in parts according to the number of the teams, it makes for a large base, on which teams will arrange their puzzle pieces. Some symbol of company success (its logo, name, word «team» etc.) is spread throughout the whole panel. Making large and colorful panel picture To make this panel picture of success, participants are split into teams; each one of them then gets their piece of a puzzle, which they have to decorate. To do so, participants have photos, paints, fabrics and all sorts of scrapping material at their disposal. It’s not that easy to acquire them, though. In order to do that, teams will have to take part in various games and interesting challenges! The part of the puzzle, where the letter is located, is painted with some color or hatched – participants do not fill out that part. When teams are finished decorating their respective parts of the puzzle, everyone goes up to the main base. Then every piece of the puzzle will be carefully placed where it belongs, thus forming an organic whole – large colorful panel picture. But the job is not done yet. Team captains now have to set up voluminous letters on the panel. Now everyone can see the secret piece of the company success! And it is so, only as a team we could achieve this difficult, despite fascinating, result. email@example.com | eventplatform.ru | facebook.com/EventPlatform | +7 495 66 503 66

Participants can leave their greetings or messages on the wall, and last but not least – take pictures against it. Bright options for the final chord of your event Structure and visual aspects of the wall may depend on the event location and purposes: we had a giant Rubik’s cube at the end of Budapest mission, and Bastion of Efficiency in the corporate gathering of a major bank. Electronic puzzle. As participants have been using iPads all along, we can put them to use in the finale. Upon reaching final destination, each iPad will display a piece of a puzzle. Constructing one large shiny picture out of dozens iPads is a sight to behold, and moreover, provides a nice background for a group photo. In our practice, we constructed such panel pictures, alighted after being made accurately, few meters long. We also organize actions in flash-mob format for groups of a few thousand people. In the course of those actions participants perform a collective lively «corporate dance», forming a huge word or a figure that will be read and recorded from the helicopter. Instructions can be received via electronic devices given by the animators or participants’ own mobiles, or even be transmitted on mobile information stands, arriving at the place always in time. As a part of our basis service package we traditionally include «progress review» procedure over the course of the final dinner. We demonstrate photos and videos collected by our participants, team captains comment on them and then everyone receive their respective awards in different nominations. email@example.com | eventplatform.ru | facebook.com/EventPlatform | +7 495 66 503 66
