The Smart-Phone Symphony!

This aspect to our songwriting/team-building program utilizes the technology most of us carry in our pockets in a way that is collaborative, instructive, and so...so much fun.  BUT, it requires a great deal of split-second timing, and enthusiastic leadership from within each sub-team as assigned by our facilitators.  If you think your attendees are up to the task, please don't hesitate to ask us about how this program works.  It's highly innovative, so we can only share it with you on the phone.  Shhhh..

KEY TAKEAWAYS:

  • Technology as a "member of the team"
  • Technology, why it can't replace true relationships

Write a Song – Record a CD!

Some organizations want to have a keepsake of this experience we share together. With that thought in mind, one of the services we offer is this. Once a song is created in conjunction with your team - at your event, we will take the lyrics, melody and “feel” back to Nashville and record and produce a professional quality CD of your team’s song! This CD can just be for the office, or mass-produced into a company, organization or event theme song. You will have the right to use this tool however you choose. We will record this song in a professional studio in Music City, with top-notch musicians.

Write a Song – Build a Team – Digging a Little Deeper Than Just ONE Event.

How? Glad you asked. If your organization would benefit by bringing our team in for a series of workshops, so that different silos can participate in these intimately sized events, we will work within your budget to achieve the highest ROI possible! Let’s see what we can come up with together. Our primary goals, are that your team-members walk away with a clearer sense of the importance their individual voice carries within the context of a team, as well as a fresh outlook on how to best amplify their colleagues strengths…..This is also a great activity for a Board of Directors - who work so diligently to muster the resources to make things happen for their company or organization.
