The Challenge

Expel is a crew focused on helping their customers love cybersecurity. With their company kickoff going from in-person to virtual, the team needed a platform to facilitate an engaging experience for their distributed team.

How the Virtual CKO Happened

The Expel Company Kickoff took place over three days. The event included time for managers to connect, main stage content to celebrate the team’s accomplishments, a quick sales and marketing kickoff, and an awards ceremony.

A Simple, Interactive Space

The Filo Campus was simple, making it easy for their team to navigate the three Floors. A clickable agenda made it even more user friendly.

Employees were able to click in the agenda and be redirected to the appropriate space in the Campus.

The Company Kickoff Floor included:

  • An embedded live stream
  • Links to learn more about keynote speakers
  • Rooms to host breakout sessions

Thoughtful Breakout Sessions

Expel had several breakout sessions on day two of their kickoff. Each session had its own Room that included a Zoom Tile and information about the speakers. The sessions included topics like Customer Panels all the way to the company’s 2023 priorities.

Team Bonding And Fun

No kickoff is complete without the team having fun and getting to know each other better. Expel facilitated connections with a Coffee Chat Floor where the team connected via Zoom.

The Expel team were able to chat with team members.

The fun didn't end there for Expel. They even hosted a DJ party so everyone could bust a move at the end of the event.

The Results

We are grateful for the time and dedication the Filo team spent helping us prepare for our first fully virtual kick off. Folks really loved the platform and Filo made it such a great experience for us. The team enjoyed watching videos, engaging in a variety of meetings, and listening to music. This was so much more than a typical Zoom meeting.

Over 275 team members were celebrated, had time for reflection and are now aligned on the year’s company initiatives.

The Expel team will continue to use Filo for other company initiatives throughout the year.
