FireFly Team Events Unveils Interactive Virtual Experiences

California-based small business helps companies boost morale by successfully pivoting to virtual corporate team building experiences in response to COVID-19 pandemic.
ORANGE COUNTY, Calif. - June 14, 2020 - PRLog -- From helping teams get out of virtual escape rooms to online mixology events, FireFly Events has successfully shifted from in-person corporate team building events to virtual events in response the COVID-19 pandemic and physical distancing orders.

Co-Founders James Bennett and Nadine Sandeluss, embraced the current climate companies are facing in trying to keep their employees engaged as soon as news of the pandemic spread to the United States. Their interactive virtual experiences are not like standard webinars on the market, "It's not enough to just put something in a virtual room and expect it to be entertaining, your audience has to legitimately feel there is an opportunity to interact with the teacher, talent or performer. We are shaping our events to meet these needs," explains Bennett.

The team with more than 16 years of experience delivered virtual experiences to Dell Technologies, Ingram Micro, Microsoft, Intel, HP, Medtronic, and Wounded Warrior earlier this spring.

"FireFly is a pure blend of fun and professionalism! Their transition into the virtual world has taken creativity to the next level, providing unique, fun, and exceptionally well executed team connection opportunities," said Kelley Lansing, Associate Event Planner, Ingram Micro.

"Thank you to all the team at Firefly Events! Upon entering our SoCal lockdown, tied into a contract for a 60 person live event at our annual meeting, Michael and Nadine at Firefly couldn't have been friendlier and more flexible about postponing and bringing that back at a later date. In addition, and to fill the void while we are all at home, they have re-positioned themselves to offer fun and entertaining virtual events, just what we needed right now. We have now just completed our third virtual event, which was a huge hit with our employees. Can't wait to do more, budget permitting, and also get that LIVE event back on the schedule when it's safe for us all to do so," said Ian Hopkinson, Regional Managing Director's Executive Assistant, First Republic Bank.

Bennett and Sandeluss attribute their success during these unprecedented times to having a dynamic and innovative team that was working remotely prior to the pandemic, strategically managing their supply chain in order to deliver all necessary superior audiovisual equipment and training to their event hosts, embracing the spirit of DIY, and partnerships with influencers like Food Network star Natasha Feldman.
