TURNING A WORDLWIDE KICKOFF INTO A VIRTUAL EVENT

TARGET

To transform a listed company’s annual in-person kickoff gathering into a virtual event. The goal was to communicate the 2021 strategy and focus areas clearly to the company’s over 1000 employees worldwide and add entertaining and engaging elements to create a one team feeling and experience.

 

EXECUTION

Built a recurring and recognizable TV format with 2 hours daily live broadcast over the 3-day event with interviews, panel discussions, pre-recorded inserts, presentations, music entertainment and interactive elements to engage the audience. Executed from one studio in Helsinki, another in Copenhagen and a range of internal and external speakers dialing in.

RESULTS

The virtual event tops the annual Kick-offs satisfaction ranking. 73% of the respondents said the event exceeded expectations and for 23% the event met the expectations.  97% said the event communicated the strategy clearly. 78% felt a virtual approach for a companywide event worked extremely well and for another 17% that it worked well. The company considers continuing worldwide virtual events also next year regardless of situation.
