How We Stage It
Two things must happen at all successful meetings. One, people need a charge built under them. Two, that charge needs to be directed at the most precise objectives created by the group themselves. Yes, it's that simple. In concept.

The meeting mastery team, Arcturus, builds the charge, not with hackneyedold off-site games - but stories, plays, songs, and strategic illustrations that are created from the very material discussed at the conference you have chosen to create. In this way nothing is a sideshow - everything counts.

How do we do that? Well, we start by coaching your key presenters a day or so before the event occurs. We recharge those overdone bullet point presentations into dramatic stories that activate your team. We help illustrate, musically drive, and create a collaborative experience with your team during the gathering that culminates in radically authentic and energetically alive moments.

Simultaneously, during the proceedings, we will listen deeply for your best ideas and see that they are summarized in stories, songs, and strategic storyboards. For a close we can orchestrate and shape that information into a full on show created together with your people that brings home the objectives with riveting and reinforced clarity.

We can shoot the players in stills and motion for your future use. We can bring some really sensational talent to the stage. We can mediate conflict as needed. We can get the physical body in the game with periodic yogic refreshers. Yes, and we can do games when being silly is necessary to loosen up the thinking.

We have done this all over the world. We size our team to your needs. There is nobody more competent. See our client list below!!
