Managers, executives and professional figures from all over Italy gathered at Grand Hotel Portovenere on 24 March 2017, to participate in a unique and fun corporate workshop featuring… colorful LEGO® bricks!
The workshop was called Strategic Organization with LEGO® Serious Play®. It allowed participants to explore and develop professional skills, personal talents, techniques of organizational assessment, empathy, problem solving, and the “flow” for more a productive and creative work.
The workshop covered themes like strategies for customer acquisition management, team building, and product innovation. How often can you sit around a table for work and have this much fun when dealing with such important and serious matters?!
Corporate Events & Team Building in the Italian Riviera
The LEGO workshop was organized by Grand Hotel Portovenere in collaboration with FUTOUR, an Italian company that helps organizations discuss to take decisions and co-create the future: challenging problems are transformed into creative ideas and solutions through dialogue, leadership and participatory interaction. Specifically, the course was taught by Paolo Martinez, expert in innovation and service & strategy design for businesses.
The partnership provides the perfect combination for those looking for an excellent location and an innovative corporate event. In fact, the participants were struck by the beauty of the Gulf of Poets, a lesser-known destination just next-door to the famous Cinque Terre. They also acknowledged the effectiveness of the LEGO workshop as an unusual and positive way to face business challenges.
