Microsoft AUSReady

The Challenge

Microsoft Australia had their most successful employee kick off yet in 2019, so the bar was set high for AUSReady 2020. 

When COVID-19 hit and  it became clear that a face-to-face event was not going to be possible, Microsoft Australia came to Fourth Wall and EventCastTM to create a dynamic, engaging and interactive experience that would unite their team from across the country, deliver key messaging for the year and set a new benchmark as the best employee kick off yet. No pressure!

The Creation

Fourth Wall created an action-packed 6 hour multi-sensory experience that focused on dynamic segments including discussion panels with remote presenters dialing in from across the country, talk show style lounge interviews, solo keynotes, employee videos, and an immersive podcast segment.

Hosted by the talented Julia Zemiro, the show delivered authenticity and humour. It also featured stand out performances by Paul Dempsey and Thelma Plum, as well as a show-stopping set by John Butler broadcast live from his home in Margaret River. 

Curated digital chatter through the EventCast™ app proved to be a successful part of the AUSReady experience with a constant stream of comments, photos and a high participation in live trivia and polling.

The Outcome

AUSReady 2020 was Microsoft’s most successful employee kick off yet, it even impressed their headquarters in Seattle, WA.

The unique combination of high-quality, inspirational and captivating content, and interactivity through the app, created the perfect platform to unite and motivate their people in an unforgettable way.
