Innovation is the heartbeat of an organisation, helping to breathe life and longevity into what you do as well as contribute meaningfully to performance.

Whether you’re innovating on your core business model to diversify profit streams or adding new products to an existing lineup, innovation is a complex undertaking that organisations invest in and embark on.

The internet is a wonderful place where brands can build a relationship with their customers and build brand love.

It’s also a place where brands have been damaged by customer feedback, boycotts and hate speech.

Love Your Work

Have you fallen out of love with the work you do? You’re not the only one.

Did you know that only 13% of people feel happy in their jobs?

Virtual Presenter

  • Creative ways to connect with your audience in a virtual conference

You lay the chairs out in your venue in a boardroom style or u-shape or banquet because it creates different learning dynamics in the room.

Yet we still present content in the same way. What if you could change the way you deliver presentations to your audience.

Mike Saunders has developed a series of virtual products to break past the boundaries of conferences to create bespoke virtual experiences that are as engaging as being in the room. All of these products are also available to create hybrid experiences, turning your conference into a place where people and technology meet.

Live Broadcast

Move up from the webinar experience. With live broadcasts, we can deliver high quality and engaging presentations.

Think of it like this – its the television experience compared to the skype experience. We’re able to style our shows to match the aesthetic of your venue, do scene changes (indoor and outdoor) and live interactions with your audience.

Virtual Workshops

Mike makes use of video conferencing and smart virtual whiteboarding to create virtual workshop experiences. They actively enable your teams to ideate and unlock their potential.
