Last weekend we hosted the Museum Hack sales team in New York City for team building and sales training.

Agenda for Sales Training

Our sales team had a packed agenda that included:

  • Lots of museum tours,
  • Storytelling workshop,
  • Meeting our world-famous renegade tour guides,
  • Skills training for sales best practices,
  • Team building training for our corporate clients,
  • Experiencing our new “Escape the Met” and “Murder Mystery” adventures,
  • Tour of Grand Central,
  • Group discussion and feedback sessions,
  • Game nights and pizza parties,
  • … and lots more.

Visiting Museums

Museum Hack LOVES museums, so obviously we had to show our sales team as many of them as possible.

Brooklyn Museum

We all agreed this was a “hidden gem” in New York City.

Evan was our private tour guide at the Brooklyn Museum. The Egyptian galleries are one of my favorite spaces there.

If we can convince more companies to come here, it will be awesome! It is a great space with an excellent collection.

Fraunces Tavern

This museum is located in downtown Manhattan. I was incredibly impressed with the team building events and activities that our very creative guides had designed here.

Museum Hack’s team building at this museum features a lot of hands-on activities for our sales team

The museum felt private and exclusive during our team building event in downtown New York City.

I would highly recommend this place for groups of 5 to 40 people. (For larger groups: we regularly host at the Rubin, the Met, the AMNH, the Brooklyn Museum… and a few more)

The museum is filled with many important works from our country’s early days.

The Rubin Museum of Art

We have hosted a LOT of corporate groups here. It is a beautiful space in Chelsea that features the art and cultures of the Himalayas, India and neighboring regions.

Kevin was the private tour guide. Marielle, up top, always has the best photo poses.

Grand Central Terminal

Technically not a museum, but filled with fun facts and spaces to explore.

Did you know the clock on 42nd Street is made of Tiffany Glass? Very cool!

Sales Training

It wasn’t just fun and games. There was a solid day of classroom work and discussion – with a great view!

Our rented office space for sales training had an excellent view of midtown Manhattan.

Team Building Through Food

We had a lot of great meals together. Most of them weren’t photographed, but I did get these two pics:

About Our Sales Team

Museum Hack’s sales team is fully remote and fully awesome.

We had our people fly in from Arkansas, Florida, North Carolina, Washington, Columbia, and Georgia. Wow!

Fuji Instax photos are great

Conclusion

I am very proud of the sales team that we are building here at Museum Hack.

I was amazed at their dedication, excitement, and passion to share what we do.

Museum Hack believes that more people should visit more museums more often. Our sales team and many others who work for Museum Hack are helping us achieve that mission every day.

Hosting everyone in New York City reminded me of the power of team building.

It was great to get everyone together to learn and discuss. I want to do this more often for other groups inside of our company.

It was a fun and educational experience.

And pizza!
