Icebreakers & Team Builders

Our consultants will come to your organization's meeting or retreat and facilitate icebreakers and/or team builders to fit your organizations needs! Activities ranging from get-to-know-you games to trust exercises and lessons for more effective communication. 

Event Planning

An interactive workshop that explains the step by step process on how to plan an event on the Iowa State University campus, completing the event authorization process, and all other event-related pieces. The workshop is more discussion based and does require the organization to have some idea as to what event they would like to hold on campus. This presentation is best suited for the executive board of an organization or a small group of students. 

Effective Communication

This presentation analyzes your organization’s current communication skills. The facilitator will pinpoint problems that your organization might have with communication. After, the facilitator will offer suggestions on how to create better communication between members. This presentation is best suited for an entire organization or the executive board.

Membership Retention

Through this interactive presentation, the facilitator will highlight some of the main reasons why organizations have a difficult time retaining members overall. After, the facilitator will encourage members of the organization to evaluate the organization’s structure. This presentation is best suited for the executive board of an organization or a small group of students.‚Äč

Goal Setting

Goal setting is the powerful process of identifying your ideal future and creating motivation by establishing measurable goals and time frames in order to accomplish success. Through this presentation, organizations will be able to understand what it means to set goals, but more importantly, how to set goals. This will be demonstrated through knowledge about various types of goals, creation of an outline for an action plan, and the ability to identify the impact that each goal will have on a person and their organization. Having this knowledge and awareness of how to effectively set goals will ultimately encourage focus and overall achievement.


Fundraising is the main way that clubs and organizations obtain money to participate in events or to give back to the community.  Through this presentation, you will be able to understand the steps for completing a successful fundraiser and some ideas for future fundraisers.  After the presentation, there will be time with the presenter to brainstorm a future fundraiser.  This presentation is best suited for an entire organization or the executive board. 

Volunteer and Service Opportunities

This presentation focuses on the Who, What, Why, and How of service within student organizations. During the workshop, students will learn about the importance of service within student organizations, ways to get involved with volunteer organizations and service groups on campus and in the community, and how to plan and organize your own service project. The presentation will provide many resources and examples of volunteer and service opportunities here at Iowa State and in the local community, as well as nationally established philanthropies and non-profits.
