What will I experience in an event?
Here are some of the things clients have partnered with us for: team building, onboarding new hires, client engagement, networking, alumni events, celebrations, holiday parties, to name a few. The list is endless so as long as the goal is to have your group bond and have fun, ConnectRship is the right solution. Browse through our case studies here for more fodder!
We are fully customizable so if your group has some unique needs, we'll make it work! You can customize your event by choosing the length of time, degree of difficulty, game content, and the selection of games. ConnectRship will personalize everything to your liking. Depending on how much is involved, customization may incur an additional charge.
In a one hour event (our most popular), your host will take your guests through about 6-8 activities. Every player gets engaged, and if a player isn't good at one activity, more likely, they'll find another activity that works for them. We have done events that are shorter or longer than an hour and will adjust the number of activities accordingly.
What kind of activities do you play?
We have more than 25 activities that have been tested for maximum fun! Our events are structured with a fine balance of activities that get players to get to know each other better, challenge their brains and test their listening skills. There's even an activity that gets participants on their feet and moving. For a quick preview of some of our activities, click here.
What time of the day is ideal?
We have done events as early as 9 am and as late as 8 pm. If you have teams in multiple locations, then geography drives the times. Clients typically book us for the happy hour timeslot, which tend to fall either on Wednesdays or Thursdays late afternoon/early evening. However, we've done lunch time events and start of the work day events. So it's really up to you and your team what is ideal.
How do I log on to play?
Our events are run via Zoom. You do not need an account to play. Just click on the provided link, and show up ready to play.
How are these activities played?
Depending on the size of your group and your goals, your host will play out activities between the main room and breakout room. For a quick preview of some of our activities, click here. If you want to experience ConnectRship firsthand, sign up for an upcoming demo here. If the demo dates don't work, book some time with the ref here and he can give you a quick overview of what's involved.
Who hosts the events?
Our events are facilitated by our staff of trained ConnectRship hosts who have gone through a rigorous ConnectRtraining regimen. More info on them here. If you have a preference for a host, let us know. We'll try our hardest to make it work!
How do I book an event?
How many people can play?
We have done events as small as 5 to as large as 150 people. Depending on how many show up, we will run the events so that everyone who plays has a great time.
How do teams work?
If you want maximum networking among participants, then we will scramble the teams throughout the event so that participants get to meet new people every breakout room opportunity. If you want a winning team at the end, then we will keep the teams intact. You can either pre-assign the teams or we can randomly make the teams once everyone is logged on.
Can I book more than one event?
Yes! We can brainstorm with you to get you the right schedule. Here's a start: think tournaments where you have teams competing with each other throughout several hours, days or weeks for first place! Subscriptions - maybe monthly, quarterly, annually. However you craft it, the scripts are different so no repeat player has an advantage of knowing the answers! They will always be on their toes!
What role can swag play in an event?
Use swag to incentivize participation -- giveaways during an event, prizes for the winning team/individual. Perhaps have all participating wear swag to show company spirit (great for photos! Think social media!). Send a pre-event goodie bag full of treats to chomp on during the event or maybe send some drinks (alcohol or non-alcohol) as you do a virtual toast. Send participants a "thanks for participating' gift. Our parent company, Pride Products, has been in the promotional products industry for 24 years and can provide you with affordable, creative swag ideas. Depending on lead time, they can provide branded or unbranded items to your participants. Click here for some ideas.
