Amazing Moments 5 – Living in the Fast Lane

So, some guys go sailing in a hot air balloon. Nice, very nice. But not fast enough.

In one of our projects we make an internal podcast series about the implementation of their strategy. For this, we thought it would be a nice idea to visit customers and talk with them, ask for their experiences with this company.

But let’s not take the car…

Amazing Moments 4: OSCAR workshop, the sky is the limit

Earlier this week it was OSCAR time again…

We developed OSCAR is a training tool where digital storytelling is used as an instrument for project management, team building, leadership development, strategy development and change management. The purpose of OSCAR is to produce a film around a certain subject within 1 day. The trainees produce the entire film, from script to final edit. In addition people learn about the power of rich media. While working on their production, they are tested on their skills such as communication, planning, organizing and co-operation.

Together with one of our partners, Insights International (a well-known training company specialized in Project- and program management), we organized an OSCAR workshop for a real estate company as a kick-off event for a training on Communication and co-operation. Location: Castle Sterkenburg (website is in Dutch) in Driebergen, The Netherlands. A very inspiring environment.

Two groups of 6 people enthusiastically managed to produce a short clip of three minutes. The assignment was to give their view on the identity of the company. Although I cannot reveal the final videos, I can tell you it was hilarious, entertaining and educational. Not only did everyone enjoy the experience, it also gave an insight in how they work with each other. Which form the basis for the rest of the training. And the winners were pleased with the mostly desirable OSCAR Award!

It is amazing how people use their creative skills and ‘living’ the roles they have been assigned to. An impression:

Professional equipment ensures a smooth production phase – and it impresses people too

The postproduction is the part where the people see the pieces falling together

Or have to decide to shoot scenes again

OSCAR has winners, but no losers

But the best was saved for last. As a surprise, the managers of the company organised a balloon trip. The circumstances were perfect: clear sky, not too cold and not too much wind. And what they say is true, once your in the air, there is no wind! (makes sense, doesn’t it?)

So, literally, for this OSCAR, the sky was the limit.

Don’t we all have our amazing moments every now and then? It was on Schiphol airport, our plane was delayed with 1 hour. So how to kill the time? By doing some work on our MacBook. And don’t great minds think alike……
