block of good team building is for a leader to promote the feeling
that every human being is unique and adds value.
Track Record of Success
We have delivered the 15 Minutes
of Fame Workshop for the past year with fantastic results. Executives,
managers and associates all love the experience of making a short film.
Whether they take a role as a producer, director, actor or camera operator,
everyone gets involved. And everyone has fun!
"We weren't sure what to expect. We were opening a new call centre
and had the intention of bringing new people together from different
areas. The 15 Minutes of Fame
workshop got us working together right away. Everyone was involved and
took some creative risks. We got to know each other in new ways outside
of our work relationships. There is nothing like creativity,
fun and laughing together to bring a team together quickly.
Working with a real filmmaker was a unique experience, too. They have
a refreshing way of looking at the world and communicating ideas whilst
still allowing room for the Amex teams to bring their own ideas into
play.The piece de resistance was the screening. Watching the films all
together was hilarious. It gave us an experience we will remember and
draw on for a long time."

"Many thanks for delivering a great team building event
for us at Siemens Mobile. I would have no hesitation in recommending
a discussion with 15 Minute of Fame for other organizations who are
seeking something different and fun for a teambuilding exercise."

Teamwork and communication are two areas we gained from the workshop.
And a lot of fun, everyone had fun!

"As a geographically challenged sales team, we were looking for
something that would not only bond our team on the day, but also remain
with us through the balance of the year. We were looking to stimulate
creativeness and openness as we lead into the years planning session.
We wanted our team to remain aware of their creative abilities as they
work to implement and deliver against the year’s objectives. Most importantly,
we wanted to have fun some fun..." Read

"I HAVE ORGANIZED and participated in many conferences
and incentive group activities but I thought the movie making and Academy
Awards night was a brilliant concept and a memorable experience. And
what an interesting and talented bunch! Who better to provide some insight
into the world of movie making than three industry experts. The guys
were very encouraging.
Personally I loved it. Not only was it fascinating, it was a lot of
fun as well. The fact that Screendreams was able to transform what we
had done into a movie was amazing! The screening of the movies and the
Awards night that followed was fabulous (and so entertaining). A great
group or team building experience. I really look forward to using the

was a chance to see the playful side of each other and we'll be
able to remember the good times when under stress.
Comment on feedback
More comments from feedback forms:
"It stretched me to be creative on the fly and execute
on time without a perfect plan. It encouraged listening and collaboration
to draw on our strengths."
"The bonding and the experience of what making a film together
changed the playing field and has given us the opportunity to communicate
on a different level in all aspects."
"It brought out the possibilitites and potential within colleagues
"Because we mostly work virtual and did not really know each other
very well, this was a fantastic opportunity to team and come to know
"The workshop gave me a taste of creativity, passion, salesmanship,
and spontaneity. It gave us practice to present ideas to our customers
and showed me that visual and nonverbal methods for delivering a message
can be powerful and actually much better than words."
