Program 2: Digital Detox Puppet Jams (adults and children aged 5+)

Glorytells’ Digital Detox Puppet Jams are all about revelling in the joy, fun and colour of creative play. These Puppet Jams involve a sock puppet making craft activity and performance workshop.

Using super fun and colourful puppetry kits featuring a range of pre-cut materials (provided by our friends at Puppetaria), participants have fun constructing a beautifully detailed, quality sock puppet they can play with and take home – something that has a long shelf life that they won’t just throw away.

Play Agency - Digital Detox - Sock Puppet Making Workshop

The craft segment is followed by a 30 minute puppetry performance workshop where participants experience the pure joy of operating Muppet-style puppets.

While waiting for the glue to dry on the newly created sock puppets, we lend everyone a professional puppet to work with as we teach lip sync, arm movements, emotions, voice work, walking and various other techniques used to bring puppets to life.

These workshops make for a great creative, screen-free escape for adults, teens and kids who are afforded a dedicated space to experience fun, laughter and joy; think outside the box; build confidence; work together in teams; and improve communication. For kids, it’s also a wonderful way to practice gross motor skills and fine motor skills.

Digital Detox Puppet Jams feature a:
– puppet show
– sock puppet making craft workshop
– puppetry performance workshop

Duration: 2- 2 1/2 hours.
Cost: $30/per head.
Important note: Minimum 35 participants. Bookings must be made a minimum of 8 weeks in advance. A 50% deposit is strictly required to confirm a booking.

Play Jam & Digital Detox Incursions - Team Building Jam

Play is fun, developmental and positive – and speaks to the human side of organisational culture and development. Playing, learning and working together in a team environment enhances curiosity, communication, collaboration and co-creative relationships with others.

Bring Elissa in every time a new staff member joins your departmental team, your leadership team or your board – and watch as your teams achieve results together.

Team Building Jams can be hosted at Glorytells on Bribie Island or in your workplace. To book a Workplace Team Building Jam, contact Glorytells now.

Play Jam & Digital Detox Incursions - Idea Generation Jam

Together we determine the problems you want to solve and the opportunities you want to take advantage of then use idea generation using puppetry (I know right?!?) to formulate unique, breakthrough ideas.

This workshop is a perfect complement to organisational strategic development, creative brainstorming and campaign planning sessions.

Idea Generation Jams can be hosted at Glorytells on Bribie Island or in your workplace. To book an Idea Generation Jam or for further details contact us now.

Program 5: Corporate Strategic Planning Jams (for adults)

Elissa will facilitate strategic planning sessions for:

  • entire organisations
  • individual departments
  • boards
  • internal or external marketing, communications or fundraising campaigns

Play Jam & Digital Detox Incursions - Strategy Planning

Engaging Elissa to facilitate strategic planning sessions means leaders can step back from the ‘chairing’ position and, instead, engage alongside their teams.

While being supremely task focused, Elissa’s delivery is also full of joy, play and humour, ensuring teams not only stay on track, but also stay engaged and awake!

Elissa’s diverse background and experience means she supports organisation through the development and execution of its strategic plan or campaign plan.

“I work hard to understand complexities, I pride myself in connecting organisational dots and I am passionate about supporting organisations achieve their shared vision. 

“I’m a patient, but action-oriented facilitator. I also often subtly sneak in consensus decision-making techniques. For a team to embrace an idea and give it a life of its own is a reward for this effort as it provides a better chance of success.

“Taking the time to listen and discuss ideas and options in a safe space where everyone’s contribution is valued – rather than just the dominant few – helps turn strategy into action as there is a sense of shared direction.

“Doing all this while not being boring is my shindig.”

Corporate Strategic Planning Jams can be hosted at Glorytells on Bribie Island or in your workplace. To book a Corporate Strategic Planning Jam or for further details contact us now.
