Celebrate Diversity Month

Use this month to celebrate and embrace diversity in the workplace! There are many ways to do this. You could share a video on social media that explains why diversity is important to your company and how it comes to life. Or, foster a deeper understanding with your internal team by hosting a DEI event! This template makes sure that your team knows when, where, and why you’re hosting this event.

April Fools’ Day

Breathe some fresh air into your social feeds with a lighthearted April Fools prank. Not sure what to do? Create a wacky imaginary new product and “launch” it on April Fools’ Day!

Administrative Professionals Day

Where would we be without our administrative pros?! On National Administrative Professionals’ Day, also known as Secretaries Day or Admin Day, recognize the professionals who keep your virtual or brick-and-mortar office running smoothly. Customize the template below with photos of your awesome admins and thank them for all the work they do, even behind the scenes.

International Creativity and Innovation Day

Get your wheels turning and bring the creativity out of your team or audience on International Creativity and Innovation Day! It’s a great opportunity to devote some time to rethinking your product, service, or processes. Create a video and share it with your team or even your social media audience to ask questions like “If you could change one thing about our product, what would it be?” or “What is one thing we can do better as a team?”

Then, compile your results, share them with your team, and start brainstorming! This video is great for posing the initial questions and inviting them to a brainstorming session.

Spring sale

If the ideas above don’t quite fit your organization, stick with a sale. Put a spring in your seasonal sales by sharing a promo video. The template below is vibrant, uplifting, and eye-catching – just what you need!
