With creative ideas and experienced event specialists, every conference hotel can be transformed into an experience room. This is what happened end of January 2019 at the management conference of the energy group E.ON, which was attended by 120 managers at the Hotel Döllnsee in Brandenburg. The "Magic Energy of Sales Magic" was palpable in all rooms and throughout all programme items, and was also reflected by the festively decorated hall for the dinner in the evening. The highlight of the conference was the team task: Under the guidance of a professional camera team, 10 groups each shot a scene of their own Hollywood film in the style of aworld-famous English sorcerer's apprentice's heroic journey. The best film in different categories was awarded an internal Oscar.

Successful teamwork: The whole is more than the sum of its parts

Verena Fink (Woodpecker-Finch) conceived the conference event in Templin as part of her work as a transformation consultant for E.ON SE and implemented it as project manager with event partners. The Sollik team has brought the "magic of the magic world" to life through creative stage construction with the targeted use of light, sound and video technology and symbolic decorative elements. The first joint project of the event professionals of the Rubensstraße went smoothly. The magic spark electrified the audience. Everyone was thrilled by the moody atmosphere, the ultra-modern presentation technology and all the lovingly designed details (lighting accents, magical film props, table decorations, etc.).

One challenge was the coordination of the film production. 10 amateur actor teams were supervised in a rotating system by professionals. All footage had to be viewed, edited, and finalised overnight, as the films of the conference participants were presented and awarded on the next day in the plenary session. Thanks to the experience of the camera and editing teams, the "magical" motivational films were completed on time.

"The cooperation of our office community was a total success, and we are looking forward to further exciting projects, which we are able to implement with our bundled expert know-how", concluded Managing Director Andreas Sollik.
