Viral videos don’t happen by accident. They take teamwork, creativity, careful planning and flawless execution.

Your team will pick up some new brainstorming, decision-making, and planning tools while they create and launch a viral video.

Teams will develop the script, cast the video, and crew the shoot.

Not only will they have fun, they will walk away with tools and insights to boost team effectiveness when you return to work.
