Corporate Team Building Activities Boston

We were called to organize a corporate team building activities Boston for a Fortune 500 company’s Finance and Investment department. They were looking for an activity for their entire legal team that would promote collaboration and networking while fostering open communication between lawyers.


The activity developed for this scenario was a version of “Bridges to the Future.” The legal department was charged with carrying out what initially appeared to be an impossible task; build a massive bridge out of cardboard and duct tape strong enough to support a golf cart driven across it! Followed by an energizing process debrief, participants identified each of the specific attributes which were so vividly demonstrated about full dedication to the firm. Individuals verbalized specific personal lessons and changes in behavior necessary to allow movement on the new legal team initiative.

Program Details

The legal department broke into eight separate sub-teams. Six of the groups were charged with constructing four-foot mid-sections of the bridge. Two other groups were charged with building eight-foot ramps, which would be the bridge’s entrance and exit ramps. Each team was also required to create street signs and guard rails for each section. In addition, visual enhancements were designed, representing the firms’ mission and vision statements, supporting the executive goal of interacting as “One Firm.” The team decided that the visual messages should highlight the past, present, and future of the firm to drive home the message of cross-collaborative sharing.

As per the program design, team leaders were chosen by each group, and several meetings occurred to cross-share valuable information about design ideas – guaranteeing structural integrity. The groups were also allowed to share materials and even human resources toward the latter stages of the event. Teams learned quickly that even if their section were error-free, a single poorly built part would mean that the entire project was doomed.

At the end of the activity, all the groups brought their sections together to assemble the entire bridge. It was an exciting but anxious time, with different groups helping to attach all other sections. There were times during the final 20 minutes that you could not tell which people were responsible for which group – everyone accepting responsibility for the success or failure of the project!

The bridge itself was quite impressive. Forty feet in length and filled with colorful street signs and encouraging messages and goal setting. Everyone held their breath as the golf cart started over the bridge, and they cheered exuberantly as the cart made it over. Team pictures were taken with the entire group standing on the bridge!

        What is a Keynote Speaker?

        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.
