Events via Silega's Business Simulations

 

Make participants say WOW!

An event is the expression of your company’s message and personality. You begin with an empty stage and you want participants to leave with a memorable and useful experience.

By leveraging our understanding of your brand and the goals of your event, we take complex information and help you deliver an engaging, relevant, and entertaining learning experience.

And after the “wow” factor of the event has worn off, we can help you maximize your ROI by following up with participants and measuring the tangible long-term effects of your investment.

 

Three Trends

During a corporate event, you only have a precious couple of days in which to take maximum advantage of your time and money investment.

Senior management increasingly judges the value of events by asking whether the time and resources invested in them will generate tangible, measurable results which will enhance their company’s success. 

Participants have usually “seen it all” and it’s difficult to engage them in new experiences, given short attention spans and constant work-related interruptions. 

These factors, combined with ever-tightening budgets, are the reality for today’s corporate events.

Our work-flow

Silega can support you in communicating the session objectives and create “buzz” through invitations and teasers.

 

Logistics 

We can support you partially or completely with logistics, from booking through participant registration and shipping materials.

 

Customization 

Content, analogies, and examples are customized through a series of questionnaires, interviews, and focus groups.

 

Theming*

We can support you in creating a conference room theme that’s appropriate to the topic of the simulation.

FYI: Nine mistakes to avoid

 

We have seen quite few disasters at corporate events, mostly caused by lack of experience or lack of time spent planning the details. Here are a few comments on poorly managed events:

 

1 . Poor organization

“There was a total lack of information about what was happening; you could see many people just wandering around and not attending sessions”.

“Half of the participants arrived late for the opening because they were given wrong information about the venue”

 

2. Lack of support from top management

“Our Director went on stage to open the conference, and just asked us to enjoy the event but that he has “more important things to do”…” 

 

3. Mixed messages 

“Messages from different sessions were not aligned at all, and sometimes even contradictory”

 

4. Huge investment not justified 

“We spent 5x times more on the venue and the travel than on the actual content and learning”

 

5. Not taking advantage of the agenda 

“There were several holes in the agenda, so we had to go to the beach on company time and expense”

 

6. Overloaded agenda 

"There were constant delays. Each area was given 15 minutes to present a report, but when they started speaking it took more than an hour”

 

7. People hurt or traumatized 

“A provider made us walk on glowing charcoal; some people got hurt” 

 

8. People not engaged, bored

“Sitting on a chair for 12 hours was not cool…”

 

9. Lack of relevant business content 

"A speaker tried to teach us time management by putting us in a cocktail preparation competition”
