Sinergie creates Medtronic Italia’s FY13 Kick-off Meeting
Another successful Sinergie-organized event: the Medtronic Italia annual convention for 500-odd employees. It was held at the Atahotel Expo Fiera di Pero outside Milan and featured four days of training, with company personnel engaged in division meetings and team-building sports.
Medtronic’s mission is to alleviate the impact of chronic diseases, working with physicians and providing ideas and therapies that help millions of people around the world have better lives and prospects. The company, operating in 120 countries, succeeds in this thanks to approximately 40,000 employees worldwide who share the aim of improving human life. In Italy since 1976, Medtronic now has more than 500 employees in this country.
On June 20 and 21 the first set of employees to arrive took part in corporate division meetings and team-building activities organized at the Village Idea Verde in Olgiate Olona. On June 22 a plenary session was held for all employees evoking a format of the late night Italian television talk show. Andrea Cabrini, director of Class CNBC, moderated the whole event and played host to all the speakers. In the morning there were talks by distinguished experts in healthcare and therapeutic treatments. The afternoon session was devoted to Medtronic executives and concluded with testimonials from patients whose lives the company had improved. Over the next two days, June 23 and 24, the divisions not yet covered attended the meetings and team building activities organized for them.
Sinergie also organized a gala evening. A drinks party and dinner were prelude to entertainment featuring a host of special guests. The first on stage was Cristiano Militello, a Tuscan comic known for his appearances on the popular satirical TV show Striscia la Notizia, who did a number of witty skits and conducted a quiz show with audience participation. Next came Teresa Mannino, continuing in the comic vein and totally captivating her audience. Mannino is a stand-up comedienne and TV personality best known for the cabaret show Zelig. At the end of the evening musical entertainment had everyone singing and jiving.
An excellent example of Sinergie teamwork, with the agency handling logistics management as well as organization.
