    Teams are tired of virtual meetings and events!
    Here is why…

    A survey by Twingate reported in June 2020 that of 1000 remote employees interviewed, 40% experienced mental exhaustion from video calls.

    You want to fire them up not burn them out. Doodle surveyed over 1100 U.S. employees, 38% said virtual meetings can lead to them being exhausted and 30% said they caused stress.

     

    In a world of meetings with cameras turned off and burnout discussions for remote workers, how do you get your team to stay focused and energised?

     

    Creativity Workshops powered by AI

    Meeting around table

    We use technology and our experience of over 16 years in kickstarting creativity to:

    • Identify and overcome errors and biases in decision making processes
    • Choose the best approach to solving the problem
    • Provide tools and motivation to try a new approach
    • Engage meeting attendees to make them feel their time is valued
    • Have fun in the process

    With a combination of motivational speaking, online and offline activities, we prevent screen exhaustion.

    Plus, our proprietary AI technology will not only capture ideas in a fun visual way. Paired with our mind-set shifting training techniques, remote workers and meeting attendees will be guaranteed to take something to action on at the end of the day which will have a lasting impact.

     

     

     

    Why choose our Creativity Workshops to get remote workers engaged?

    • We’re experienced – Our coaches have been running workshops and engaged with teams over the past 16 years to power up creativity, increase energy and find better solutions
    • It’s inclusive and for everyone – Our proprietary software which we use during the workshops, Ayoa, is visual and easy to use for everyone, including the neurodiverse community who love our neuro-inclusive features
    • No technology barriers – The workshop will be facilitated by our master innovation trainer, who will manage the platform throughout, so you don’t need to worry about it crashing or pre-testing
    • Focus on motivation – Throughout the practical workshop, we instil an ‘everything is possible’ mindset
    • Actionable – At the end of the workshop, attendees can “take home” a visual board with cool ideas they can even action on
