Cyber security giants, Sophos, sell through an indirect sales team (their partners) and needed to find a way to engage and motivate these sales people. We were tasked with devising a programme to engage and generate direct sales opportunity from any activity.
To create and organise an annual series of memorable and impactful roadshow events for Sophos’ partners and end-users. We created a 20+ event tour each year that was impactful, quirky and unforgettable, as well as providing useful and memorable insights into future strategies, technological updates and regional activities.
We used VR experiences, arcade games and climbing walls along the way.
Channel relationships were skillfully nurtured using a balanced mix of fun and work, and both parties’ objectives of increased revenue were met.
