ELEVATE + RAM PARTNERS
Celebrating Hard Work
Elevate has been partnering with RAM Partners since 2014 to run their annual company awards and training conference.
The RAMMYs is the annual awards ceremony to celebrate high performing team members in various categories from the year before. We typically have this event in-person, but this year it was done virtually. We filmed and edited the awards portion into a single video, and hosted a 15-minute live stream kickoff to the RAMMYs video release.
ABOUT THE PROJECT
- Why the client picked us – They wanted us to create a high-quality awards ceremony via video. They wanted our energy from a hosting perspective, coaching of all RAM staff that would present awards, and a high-quality product produced.
An overview of what we brought to the event:
- We brought technical expertise, filming/editing, high energy hosting, coaching for all presenters, and logistics management of the slide deck/order of events on film day.
Let’s create a remarkable experience!
