Competition to Collaboration

Best Corporate Events extraordinary program Competition to Collaboration™ offers your team the opportunity to explore several amazing aspects of corporate improvement: not only will everyone have a blast working together to excel at challenging tasks, but they will also discover the power of sharing their knowledge with each other.

So even as they’re jumping for joy and high-fiving each other (see the video below) they’re learning the true meaning of Ken Blanchard’s saying “none of us is as smart as all of us” – and they are bound to apply that improved mindset when back at work. The feedback about this program is incredible!

Let’s Make a Difference

“When the 6,000 pounds of food was donated, the director pulled me aside and said, ‘We had a meeting 3 weeks ago and came to the tough realization that this fall we would not have enough food to feed all the needy families of Las Vegas in our neediest time between Thanksgiving and Christmas. In one amazing effort, you guys have solved that problem. Thank you!”
Las Vegas Rescue Mission – resulting from one of our Charity Miniature Golf Build programs

Family meals are a large part of our holiday celebrations. As evidenced by the quote, organizations that help feed needy families really feel the pressure this time of year in particular. Imagine the impact if the next time we go to the grocery store, we all pick up a few items to donate!

“Igniting Team Performance – I loved it!  The segment provided all that IMEX requested of your team… despite being the last segment of an already-long day, I left feeling upbeat and refreshed.  Who knew! Also a very interesting display of many personalities at work, as well. That the segment was so positively received did not come as a surprise as I used your team at another successful event.  You guys were great!”
- Susan, The Lane Group

“The Igniting Team Performance session that I attended at Smart Monday was excellent!! It was a really worthwhile addition to the program. Very interesting topics, some didactic workshops and engaged delegates. You guys nailed it!!”
- Heather, Events & Management

“Igniting Team Performance – Lots of Fun! Great opportunity to learn about your employees strengths and weaknesses when working on a team project.”
- Kim, HelmsBriscoe

“I just wanted to provide some feedback on the event whilst it was still fresh. We thought the session went extremely well, everybody got involved, even the staff that I know don’t particularly like these types of events. Both of your facilitators were clear and good fun and helped to make the event a success. Thanks again.”
- Sarah, Phlexglobal

“We truly enjoyed the event. It was the end of a very long day in Vegas and my two colleagues and I had been in Vegas since Saturday, very tired feet! It quickly became apparent that this was going to be an interactive event and we would not be standing in one place listening to talking heads. We ended up asking the facilitators to let us extend and try just “one more time” – twice! It was great!  Your company assisted us with an event this past year, and that event was wonderful as well.”
- Tracey, The Lane Group

“I never knew competition could be so fun! With all the Igniting Team Performance activities going on all at once and teams vying to dominate the scoreboard, I saw energy and passion that I have not seen in 9 years with this company!”
- Kathy, Broadcast Music Industry (BMI)

“I really enjoyed Igniting Team Performance – what an amazing and fun session. It helped illustrate how strategy really comes together when different perspectives are shared. It was also invaluable to learn a completely different approach to the one we were practicing. We tweeted about your session last week, and wanted to thank you and your team for sharing your expertise with us all!”
- Juliette, Idea Incentives, Inc.

Tis the Season! – 16 Charitable Programs

The season of giving is upon us – corporations are always finding a way to give back to the community and of course we are here to help. Our charitable programs benefit people both outside and within your organization by touching hearts and raising employee morale!

Take a look at our video of the Build-a-Wheelcair™ program. In this fun and worthwhile event, teams use iPads® and our proprietary apps to complete challenges which earn the parts and materials necessary to assemble, test, and decorate wheelchairs for donation. This program will touch your team’s heart and make it an inspiring day that all will remember  –  all while helping disabled Americans with serious mobility issues.

Best Corporate Events – Build a (Mini) Golf Course for Charity

Charity Miniature Golf Course Build is a fun, socially responsible team builder, requiring your group to design and create unique one-of-a-kind mini golf holes.

 

Our Charity Miniature Golf Course Build now features Apple iPads® delivering text, audio and video clues, exciting gaming challenges, and the ability to capture and save all your memories of this truly heartwarming event with photos and video of your team in action. 

Green “carpeting” is provided as the putting surface and canned goods, boxed goods and other building materials are provided to create bumpers, turns and special obstacle challenges. Creativity, resource management and teamwork skills all come into play in this rewarding program.

A fun game of golf trivia is used to engage and rally the teams. Next, each player creates their very own competitive (and zany) golfer nickname to proudly wear on the back of their shirts.

Team members work together on the concept, construction, theme and rules of their hole as well as choosing various roles such as golfers, scorekeepers and course marshals.

With marshals ensuring that the rules of each hole are adhered to, the competition begins! Both newcomers and experienced golfers can enjoy this fun event and the winning team will be anyone’s guess!

Once the tournament is complete, the groceries will be boxed and presented to a local food bank. Other material used in the program, including paper products, will be recycled. Your team will feel a sense of accomplishment and the joy that comes from giving to those less fortunate.

Racing to Team Fun with Go-Kart Challenge!

Our Go-Kart Competition now features Apple iPads® delivering text, audio and video clues, exciting gaming challenges, car trivia and the ability to capture and save all your memories of this truly heartwarming event with photos and video of your team in action.

Each team develops a blueprint design that must be approved by Event staff for safety. The concept car must have a chassis and body. A teammate will be in charge of making sure the car is built within budget.  Each team will need axles, wheels, limited lumber and tools. Materials are “purchased” from the onsite marketplace and bartering will be enthusiastically encouraged.

Team members must build their racecar according to their blueprints. While the car is under construction, other team members will decorate a uniform with the team’s theme. All cars must pass a safety inspection before they will be allowed to race. Once the racers have passed inspection, drivers will suit up and prepare for competition. Teams will race against each other and the clock to see who will make it to the final Winner’s Circle. Award medals will be presented for Best Pit Crew, 1st Place Finish and Best Overall Team.

Operation Military Care: Video of the Week

Operation Military Care is one of our most heartwarming corporate event programs. Why? Not only do participants form strong teams by collaborating on challenges that culminate in the creation of care packages for servicemen and women who typically would not otherwise receive them, but also they are surprised by a military representative who speaks about the importance of the day’s actions. We often hear that there wasn’t “a dry eye in the house” because everyone was so moved, which is important because of the impact it has on the groups to know that they can truly make a difference as a team.  This program is a powerful reminder that philanthropy is worthwhile.
