Imagination was given to man to compensate him for what he isn't. A sense of humor was provided to console him for what he is. --Horace Walpole


ZAP Creative has been involved in the meeting and event business for twenty years. We pride ourselves on our simple yet precise methodology for creating a unique communication vehicle that suits the needs of our clients. We believe that meetings are more than just a “one time” interaction with attendees.

Face to Face marketing, be it internal or external, should be the beginning of the conversation; a dialogue that continues throughout the year between attendees and stakeholders.

In order to make this dialogue a reality, we have
perfected a strategic creative process that captures every aspect of the attendees experience and infuses it with the overall goal of the meeting.
Our Mantra is: Effectively Deliver Strategic Communication. That means we begin our approach by understanding our client's vision and strategy, then executing this strategy through all aspects of their communication. That may or may not mean a meeting. It may mean a webinar, a mailing, a charity event, a road tour, or something else.

We utilize pre- and post-event benchmarking comparisons to determine shifts in attitudes, perceptions, and behaviors of your meeting attendees. This full-spectrum, one-of-a-kind meeting measurement service demonstrates exactly how well your event performed in achieving its communication objectives.

The true value of a tool of this nature is the ability to interpret and leverage the data in the meeting itself.
ZAP Creative, Inc. has spent the last five years as a strategic partner of the developers, and has created a unique data synthesis model that allows immediate integration of the behavioral measurements into the meeting itself.

Meeting production is the very art form of scalability. From a 25 person breakout session to a 2500 person general session, ZAP Creative is prepared to be your meeting production artiste. Our flexibility and experience are the keys to providing our clients the industry leading production creative that they expect on every level of production: staging, lighting, video, and audio for any size or manner of meeting.

Most presenters tend to treat the act of presenting as a monologue and they believe that reading the bullets off a PPT slide constitutes a good presentation. This is WRONG! However, with just a scant amount of our pre-event coaching, presenters will be empowered to deliver an engaging and thought provoking presentation.

  • Identify and gain confidence in your personal communications style.
    Manage the fear that often challenges presenters.
    • Become more
    adept at listening, reading a room, and building trust.
    Think on your feet and adapt to situations easily.

Become a Master Communicator and put an end to Death by PPT!
The Medium truly is the Message and it's critical to apply that thinking to every communication opportunity. Media is everywhere from DVD's to YouTube and Cell Phones to E-books. We concentrate on delivering your message through the right medium for maximum strategic impact.

ZAP Creative has Emmy Winning Producers, Award Winning Directors, and the finest editors in the industry. Use the right medium to deliver the right message to the right audience. Now

The PLAYMaker Institute was developed after years of research to find out what makes a successful PLAYMaker and if anyone can learn these skills. The answer is an unequivocal and resounding YES! It’s not only possible, it’s easy with the PLAYMaker workshop. Just ask GM or Major League Baseball, both of whom used our techniques to prep their players for change adaptation and flexibility.
