Using our facilitation skills combined with lean project management, we offer a number of facilitation design and delivery experiences...

Retreats & Offsites

If you're mulling over whether or not to have your team offsite this year, we'd advise you to get it on the calendar.

Even though we can't convene as we normally would, that just means we need to rethink what it looks and feels like - not skip it altogether.

A worthwhile offsite or retreat is a gathering where your team takes a collective breath and spends time together thinking about topics that are usually suppressed by their day-to-day routine.

For most teams, opportunities for these gatherings are rare so it's vital that they are thoughtfully designed.

However, offsites and team retreats typically go one of two routes. They either get focused on the business and strategy - simultaneously completely neglecting the human aspect of the team and relationship. Or they are a jam-packed-party-fest with cheesy forced-fun bonding activities. 

Our approach differs. We focus on deeply understanding the goals for your retreat and designing a blend of activities that help the team feel connected to each other and the mission - whilst also achieving some business goals in an engaging way.

We believe it's critical to know your goals for the event inside out before you write one word of an agenda. 

We'll work with you to create a successful event by...

  • Ensuring you have a coherent, well-communicated set of themes, focuses and goals
  • Sequencing and pacing the event to maximize engagement
  • Understanding and maximizing opportunities for interaction / participation / learning
  • Providing tools to check-in with attendees (helping you re-tune things on the fly)
  • Ensuring the event has a sense of fun and a focus on connection
  • Co-designing the artifacts / deliverables that will result from the event

The turnaround time for a retreat is 60 days from the start of the engagement. Longer is good too! We have multiple tiers of support available for your gathering - book a discovery call to discuss your needs.

All-Hands & Town-Halls

When your team gets the invite for their next, regular all-hands meeting, how many of them roll their eyes?

Why does this important part of the connectivity in your company elicit such a response? What's missing?

Imagine what it would be like if your gathering were less like a series of updates and more like a night in with Jimmy Fallon or Graham Norton.

With this notion in mind, we will work with you to codesign a more meaningful, engaging, fun and valuable all-hands for your team.

We'll ensure that challenging topics are addressed and that productive dialogue is the norm.

The retreat strengthened how people feel about the agency, so that was really helpful. It would have been easy for us to say "you know what - this year we're just not going to do the retreat - it's not feasible" and that would have been understandable. The fact that we did invest in it and that it was something that people really enjoyed - there's a lot of value in that because we want to retain amazing people and the retreat certainly was a big step along that path.

The facilitators had a super positive attitude, that was awesome. It wouldn't have been half as good without that. The energy that you brought to the table was infectious and I think that was really important especially in a virtual retreat where you know you're not getting together.

To have you be excited, play amazing music and get the right energy was something that we thought made the retreat what it was - really special.

PeopleStorming blew my mind. In 2020, the idea of getting together with your coworkers through a Zoom call AND enjoying it seemed farfetched; however, PeopleStorming carried us through two amazing days of virtual workshops, activities and fun. They were so lively and always checked in to make sure we were having an excellent and unique experience. Would highly recommend them!

The team worked with us collaboratively to turn a hand full of bullet points into a highly productive, engaging and fun two-day retreat on a relatively short timeline, all the while navigating potential scheduling conflicts and keeping me up to date on status. Highly recommended.
