The buzz around the anthym
storytelling system & experience...
Jackie Mohr | Associate General Counsel
"The anthym experience was an extremely powerful team connection experience. Simple, fun and deep - a combination that most team cohesion experiences aren't able to accomplish. Highly recommended!"
Ryan Edwards | Managing Director
"I have never experienced such a deep connection in a meeting of co-workers. Having the experience with anthym was so therapeutic. The ability to learn people’s background gave me a new love for who my colleagues are, and not just the work that they do. This type of connection is what life is about."

Kristen Beckman | VP of Human Resources
"The anthym experience came to us at just the right time. It was an impactful team-building session that we definitely needed after a long busy season. The insights and experiences we shared will last with us for a long time. We are excited to look for other ways to include this platform into our employee development and onboarding programs. It was so fresh and so new and not like anything else I’ve ever experienced in my 20+ year HR career."
Jon Schafer | VP of Customer Experience
"As an avid concert-goer music has a big place in my life, so naturally I was thrilled when a music-based team building exercise was proposed to our leadership team. From the moment I started the assignment I was hooked on this concept! I thought “I get to use meaningful songs that evoke emotions/memories, and share them with my peers”? Learning about my peers using this method was not only fun but felt very easy for everyone involved…Kudos for creating a super simple and rewarding experience."
Brian Burkhart | Founder & CEO
"Creating authentic, valuable connections with other like-minded people in your industry is half the reason organizations hold events. Unlike so many other attempts, anthym was instant, deep and fun. The people I met are now fully integrated into my network, we have engaging conversations built on an initial connection that actually mattered; anthym did that. Highly recommended!"
Adam Goodman | CEO
"We found anthym to be a fast track for instigating meaningful conversations between people who might not otherwise connect beyond a collegial level. For some reason, people are more comfortable being vulnerable and sharing life stories when it's in the context of talking about music. Employees who have known each other for over a decade are, for the first time, learning about their colleagues’ most prideful accomplishments, aching love affairs, and disappointing heartaches."

Julie Phillips | VP Employee Excellence
"The anthym experience was such a unique and engaging way to break down some of the virtual barriers that often dehumanize communication between colleagues. Even if you don't have a love of music, when I reflected back on moments in my life, certain artists and songs came to mind and it somehow brought my personal stories to life and drew parallels for others that allowed us to connect on a personal level. We saw each other as humans rather than employees in certain roles. It really brought out everyone's authentic self and created meaningful connections, especially during this time of social distancing! "
Shawn Olds | CEO
"As a rapidly-growing startup, we tend to focus the majority of our attention on activities that help scale the product and delight our customers. It is easy to overlook the activities that help scale the team. anthym was a timely experience for our team – helping us reconnect and refresh before heading into a demanding final quarter of the year. I have already highly recommended this to other entrepreneurs and investors."
