Dear CEO: How to Say “Thanks” to your Team!

Who can play keyboard in a band, do a little rafting in the Grand Canyon, watch his daughter win gold medals on the vault and then throw a “little” party for his team and their families all in the same week?

The President of Pomptonian, Mark Vidovich.

How does Vidovich and his award-winning team say “thank you” to a guest list of 1900 people? How ’bout a sunny day in the park, interactive entertainment from MMP Entertainment & Event Production, boardwalk-style gaming stations, delicious BBQ, yummy desserts and tons of awesome prizes?  Yep! That’ll do it!!!

A few times each year I get to serve really successful companies who want to say “thank you” to the team that makes it all happen and their loved ones.  They are always some of my favorite events of the year.  If your company needs a fun way to show its gratitude, call us. We’d be happy to help you.

MMP Entertainment Teams Up with The Bethwood & Chef Poon for Pomptonian’s Annual Manager’s Meeting

Is it possible to make a manager’s meeting fun? If you ask Mark and Candy Vidovich, the President and Vice President of Pomptonian Food Service, the answer is a definitive, “YES!” …even if they do have to cover content like government regulations, business policies and accounting laws.

How? It’s pretty simple actually.  Just call up professional event facilitators like us who specialize in interactive corporate entertainment. And, if your budget permits, bring in a celebrity chef to present an informative and passionate cooking demonstration to stimulate your team.

Mark and Candy knew that throughout the daylong meeting, they’d have to present some mandatory topics that were admittedly a bit “dry and boring,” so the goal was treat their team to a well-paced itinerary that included a delicious breakfast buffet, some unique audience interaction, an inspiring state of the company address from the President, an impressive lunch spread, an enthusiastic recognition of veteran team members called The Platinum Club, and an interactive grand finale that featured some awesome prizes and genuine team camaraderie.

Pomptonian's Platinum Club VIP's- Kathleen Mosdar, Bridie Carty and Bobby Greene

I’ve had the pleasure of serving Pomptonian for 15 years.  I thought that amount of time was pretty noteworthy until they announced all of the of the recipients in the 2011 Platinum Club- especially the top three!..  Kathleen Mosdar has been with Pomptonian for 25 years, Bridie Carty for 35 years, and Bobby Greene for…… 51 years!!! Each of the Platinum members  got a well deserved standing ovation and special gift from Mark and Candy.

Pomptonian serves 180,000 students, (100,000 for lunch) in 80 New Jersey school districts everyday.  And Pomptonian is the recipient of the 2011 Above and Beyond Award. The highest recognition for any company serving New Jersey schools.

Special thanks to Dominic Leone, the Bethwood’s Banquet Manager, for his hospitality and professionalism.   Dominic and the Bethwood team made sure that MMP had everything we needed to produce a smooth event.   They were quick to reply to phone calls, very accommodating at the pre-event site survey and totally on-point the day of the meeting.  Awesome teamwork!
