A Client Story:
Broadway Hits the Boardroom
When the sales director of a multi-national software company reviewed the program for his annual sales meeting, he foresaw hundreds of employees facing "death by PowerPoint".
Desperate for a way to keep staff awake, he approved turning his part of the meeting into a theatrical event in which fifteen of his staff sang, danced, and rode scooters across the stage while belting out the highlights of a new sales manifesto!
