Alzheimer’s affects 5.6 million people and can be an unavoidable tribulation to many families. Wouldn’t it be amazing to find a way to reconnect these people with their original selves? Garnering inspiration from the movie “Alive Inside” and understanding music’s touch as a universal language, Project Alzheimer’s was born! This program captivates its participants through a unique and heartwarming experience, helping Alzheimer’s patients evoke the feelings of love and fond memories. With points earned, teams will receive iPods and an array of items, to make a blanket and a colorful gift-box. These donations can profoundly change people’s quality of life, while costing less than most individuals’ medication. We couldn’t be prouder of that!
It’s fast, it’s exciting, it’s competitive…it’s Igniting Team Performance! If you are looking for opportunities to define and develop high-performing teams in your organization this signature program delivers! We tailor the activities to match your goals and desired outcomes. We include activities that improve brainstorming, innovation and cross sharing, which are solidified with short debriefs after each exercise to promote continuous improvement. We’ve seen success time and time again and the feedback we receive says it all…see for yourself.
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 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.
When groups find out they’ll be making gumbo, crafting a team ‘restaurant’ name, and performing a commercial song for their chosen moniker, there’s always a buzz of excitement in the room. When delicious smells start to fill the room and teams start tasting their creations, the excitement builds. When the singing and dancing of the performances begins, the excitement includes wholehearted cheering. And when the ultimate winner of the Gumbo Cook-Off is crowned, well, you’ve never seen such excitement at a corporate event. Now that’s tasty fun!
Got a team that’s ready for a physical challenge? Check out this video of groups swimming, leaping, running, and moving in unison, all in pursuits of a real medal! We offer a simply dazzling array of activities in our Medal Games program, all specifically geared towards building your team’s cohesiveness and success. As team members cheer on their peers and strategize their best possible approach to each challenge, they forge bonds that last. Seeing who’s adept in a potato sack race is just an added bonus!
Never underestimate the power of creativity! Not only do teams get to cook delectable meals during this corporate event, but they also design a poster and commercial advertising for their newly-formed ‘restaurant’ to the rest of the group. In this video, which includes several large group Great Dining® events, you can see lots of clever names, from Heart of Sole (for a team that made a fish dish) to the Candy Café (dessert crafters) to Irene’s and Gio’s (likely the head chef of those teams). It’s one of the many ways we’ve incorporated different forms of creativity into our programs, to let the broadest possible spectrum of participants shine!
Seeking a corporate event that’s chock full of high-tech customized excitement? Look no further than our game shows! With a mix of competitive challenges, including professional podiums, scoreboards, screens, and sound effects – as well as our wonderful game show host, of course – these programs are the perfect mix of fun and education.
Keynote Speaker is an often-misunderstood term associated with simply a motivational speaker, breakout speaker, industry expert, etc. Most professional speakers are not actual trained Keynote Speakers, who are specialists, therefore in much lower supply, and in higher demand.
Keynote Speakers are experienced, professional communicators who engage an audience, capturing the essence of a client’s meeting. They are able to highlight it to their audience while simultaneously delivering their own key concepts and proprietary content in an entertaining and impactful way. Most companies understand that this specialization is very much worth the time (around an hour) and the investment.
In order to capture the perfect essence, a Keynote Speaker spends the necessary time researching a client’s industry, their issues, and their audience to craft a customized presentation into a unique and distinctive moment specifically for the client’s event.
As a top Keynote Speaker, Tom Leu strategically uses compelling storytelling, humor, powerful visuals, audio and video clips, and audience participation elements to weave an impactful message into your event in a fun and memorable way. Tom can also pair his Keynote with Best Corporate Events programming, laying a foundation and setting a tone that best prepares participants for maximum engagement in the forthcoming team events that day.
