MESAfest 2022: Creating a summer anthem with SongDivision

By Lorena Fasui |

August 3, 2022

The Shocklogic team had an amazing time at the MESAfest Summer Party on Tuesday 26th July. This was a virtual event organised by MESA – the Meetings & Events Support Association, featuring SongDivision.

MESA is a new association based on the previous membership activities of MDI (Meeting Design Institute). The community is made up of a network of companies with a ‘people-first’ ethos, that collaborate on fresh new ideas.

SongDivision uses the science of music and the art of engagement to build bonds between people to create more engaged, happy and productive teams. 

During the one hour session, attendees took part in a musical quiz, and were put into teams, to come up with lyrics to a summer anthem. World-class musicians then immediately worked on turning those lyrics into a song, which was performed at the end.

You can watch the final song performance here! See if you can spot some of the Shocklogic team members there. You can also read the full lyrics below.

In a world that’s ever changing
Ideas we are always exchanging
MESA is all about the innovation, 
Networking and collaboration

M is for meetings – people first 
E is for events – unrehearsed 
S is for support – to catch your fall
A is for association – one and all

Going around the world and meeting friends,
That’s the power of great events.
There’s always room for serendipity,
Guaranteed creativity!

M is for meetings – people first 
E is for events – unrehearsed 
S is for support – to catch your fall
A is for association – one and all


This is what our some of our team members thought of the session:
