How much does Mind Gallery team building cost?
The cost of the Mind Gallery will vary according to the length of the event, what you want to achieve, the materials used and number of participants. Contact us, if you would like a quotation based on your business needs.
Organisations use the Mind Gallery as the process is unique and has a lasting effect. It creates a sense of mindshare and ownership that is unparalleled by any other professional development or team building activity. The results are rapid engagement around business goals, powerful communication, and a connected and creative workforce.
How will artistic team building help us achieve our business goals?
The process ensures that those responsible for reaching the goal will truly understand it and their role in bringing it to life. The process also stimulates creativity; this along with the goal focus ensures that creative links continue to be made long after the event is over. The art acts as a psychological trigger to keep momentum and focus going.
Do we need artistic ability?
The Mind Gallery process does NOT require artistic ability. The role of the artist is to act as coach, advisor and translator of ideas. The artists will be there to assist in both the drawing and painting phases of the process. It should also be stressed, that the simplest ideas are often the best – It is the quality of the idea not the drawing.
Typically it takes around 3 hours. We can modify the process to fit into less time, or if additional facilitation is required it may take longer.can run from one to three hours depending on what you want to achieve.
I get it, but how do I sell it to ‘The Boss?’
Some people immediately see the benefit of the Mind Gallery process, where others take a little bit longer. How does ‘painting’ provide a Return on Investment? If you go to HOW IT WORKS section of the website, you will see the power of our process. The Case Studies section also shows you who we have worked with (so you can have greater confidence in recommending us) and the value our clients have found in using our process.
We also have a number of clients who are happy to be verbal referees.
What if we are not a ‘creative’ team?
We believe that everyone is creative. We have a proven and safe process which ensures the best results are achieved. Many of our customers have come from industries such as Banking and Finance, Telecommunications and Transport. The teams we have worked with include Accounting and IT and the artistic results they have achieved speak for themselves. In summary, we believe everyone is creative and through our sophisticated, collaborative efforts we bring out the best in everyone.
Where is this event activity or team building held?
You can come to our funky venue at the Docklands or we can come to you. We work across Australia and overseas. Our workshops can be held in any style of venue from an outdoor BBQ to the plushest five star hotel.
Can we use art to theme the entire conference?
Yes, art is such a broad and versatile metaphor that you can use the art theme through the entire conference. For example put paint brushes on the invites as a teaser, set up the main conference room as an artist’s studio, use creative thinking in the workshops. We can design an entire plan for you.
What conference venues do you work at?
We go literally anywhere, we have delivered in all sorts of venues from the exclusive Lilianfels in the Blue Mountains, to Wharf 8 on Sydney Harbour. We have also delivered in Vietnam, and are currently quoting on jobs in New York and Fiji!
How can I use the Mind Gallery to leverage my total conference investment?
People remember approximately 10% of your key conference message and motivation. The Mind Gallery delivers up to a 90% retention rate for your key message, therefore increasing your return on the overall conference spend from 10% to 90%.
Can I close the conference with the grand unveiling?
Absolutely, and it provides a terrific WOW factor to finish on a high note! The workshop would run early in the conference to give us time to do the assembly and enhancement. Another idea for 1 day sessions is to do the workshop in the morning and then have the work on view gallery style for pre dinner drinks etc.
How can we get somebody else to pay for the session?
Because the outcome is so tangible and visible, vendors may see value in sponsoring the activity for your conference? This was the case with the OAMPS conference where Zurich saw it as the “gift that just keeps on giving”. As the piece has hung in the OAMPS reception area for the past 4 years we are sure that Zurich got great value from the sponsorship.
How do we decide what is best to paint about?
A concept meeting held before the conference will help you to decide the most valuable theme for the painting, and also how we may be able to link in with other conference activities.
How do other companies use the art after the conference?
Clients have given personal copies to all conference attendees, or sent postcards with the images. The art is also used for conference attendees to spread the conference message to those that didn’t attend. Where the conference is for strategic planning, the art often ‘brands’ the ongoing strategy documents etc.
