Brian Factoids


Games deliver the goods (engagement)?

What your meeting audiences want is surprise, real interaction, physicality, fun and genuinely useful information. The most powerful way to deliver this type of engagement is with organized audience competition …a game show.

Everybody wins

In companies, knowledge isn't power until it's shared. Brian Walter's custom game shows feature non-trivial trivia about your business. He crafts questions and answers that entertainingly serve as internal myth-busters. (What do employees believe to be true that frustrates management because it just isn't?)

Hokey? Not Brian's games

Playing games in meetings is never hokey IF the content is relevant. Quizzing employees on company-specific trivia they should know, but may not, creates instant engagement.

Clients call on Brian to craft entirely original game formats, or to parody game shows everyone knows. Either way, the shows are filled with flashy visuals, exciting effects and snappy banter, all directed at identifying and reinforcing vital messaging.

Clients and games include:
