There is no doubt that we are all tiring a little of virtual meetings but some of Melbourne Convention Bureau’s talented partners are offering some inspiring ways to re- energise and re-engage your colleagues.

The team at Showtime Event Group (SEG) has entertainment in their blood and has come up with a few fun alternatives to dreaded group zoom sessions or walks around the block. Immersive events or hamper packages can be tailored to organisations needs.

There is nothing like an all staff email alerting everyone to food being in the kitchen to get everyone’s attention so consider sending a delicious grazing box to your colleagues to enjoy together. Sick of meetings altogether, engage in a cook of challenge with your team. There is a choice of one of six different themed classes, hosted by SEG’s Head Chef, live from the studio in Showtime Events Centre. From creating hand-rolled gnocchi to a one-hour dumpling making workshop, there is always something fun to choose from. The SEG team will deliver food and beverages to all guests within a 50km distance of our base at South Wharf (delivery costs apply).

There has never been a better opportunity to bring a motivating activity into your team’s lives, and given all of ICMI Speakers and Entertainers are experts at virtually engaging teams, some of the biggest names in entertainment have never been more accessible. Mindfulness meditation is one of the highest-yield practices for personal wellbeing and productivity. Engage a wellbeing professional to introduce your team to meditation that could spark a lifelong practice of awareness, as well as mitigating the shorter-term stress associated with restrictions. Take the work lunchtime quiz to the next level with a celebrity host. Highly customised, these guys do their research. Expect questions about individuals in the company on top of the range of questions around their area of expertise.

Full service event and entertainment agency, Solution Entertainment, has been helping brands connect, engage and evolve for over a decade and are continuing to do so. Ensuring teams can perform at their best, an ‘All In’ experience will leave your teams feeling revived. Educate your team about Indigenous culture, art and storytelling with the esteemed artist, Stan Yarramunua. With art supplies provided, teams can create a keepsake of this experience to appreciate for a long time to come. Who knows, you may discover some hidden talented artists amongst you. For a wind down (or up) at the end of the week, the Cocktail Masterclass led by one of Australia’s finest mixologists teaches everyone to make an epic drink with the ingredients and equipment delivered to the door.
