Top 10 Programs for Corporate Events in Austin

While we can deliver any of our professional development, SmartHunts, or team building activities in Austin, here’s a quick list of our 10 most popular programs:

Our signature program has been enjoyed for many years by groups large and small. This top selling event continues to resonate with participants as they recall the joy of receiving their first bike. Our exclusive iPad app incorporates engaging audio/video clues and fun challenges so teams can earn the necessary parts to assemble bikes for needy children. Photos and videos of your participants in action will be captured in our app for you to access after the event.
A CSR program that will touch your heart, Build-a-Wheelchair® is a fun, worthwhile event that benefits the growing population of persons with mobility challenges. Beginning with various iPads® activities to earn the needed materials, teams will then assemble, safety test and decorate new wheelchairs for donation. When possible, a representative from the selected charity will arrive to accept and thank the group for their donations.
Corporate Survivor is a riveting and competitive team building event that will test the full measure of your team’s abilities. Loosely fashioned after the hit reality show, it challenges your tribal group to survive a series of unique and challenging activities. Giant Slingshot, Blindfolded Obstacle Course, Stepping Stones and others incorporate communication, strategizing, leadership and trust. The various events will have you racing against the stopwatch, managing the unexpected in direct head-to-head competition with another tribe!
Put the pedal to the metal and get your group fired up with Go-Kart Competition, a high-octane event where teams turn into competing pit crews and drivers – designing and building their own self-powered go-karts to race to the finish line. Promoting teamwork, creative originality and hilarious fun, this event is a winner no matter which go-kart comes in first.
Indoor and Outdoor versions! This set of fun and engaging team building games combines high-energy competition with basic athletic ability, allowing for full and active participation. Set to music that will pump up the excitement, groups warm-up, and teams are formed and assigned a color for easy identification. Next, your very own VIP will take the opening lap around the playing field and the games begin. Your group will have a blast as they compete to stand on the winner’s podium.
City SmartHunt® is the ultimate technology-driven scavenger hunt. Your group will experience the interactive features of our SmartHunts app on Apple® iPads® that utilize text messaging, audio, video, FaceTime®, social media, QR codes, and GPS with built-in mapping to produce the coolest hunts ever! SmartHunts® have two-way messaging so teams are connected with the SmartHunts Master who tracks them using GPS and monitors photos and scoring from the teams during the hunt.
Learning to play music can have a very powerful and positive effect on young people. With Build-a-Guitar®, corporate groups have the opportunity to build and donate guitars to young people. As the name suggests, teams are tasked to build high-quality guitars from custom designed kits. The finished guitars are then donated to teens through schools and other youth organizations.
Immerse your group in a world of mystery, intrigue, and detective work with our exciting team challenge, Crack the Case!® In this fun challenge, participants will be placed in the shoes of trainees close to completing a private investigator course, studying to become elite detectives. The program is a challenge that is the final test of their skills before receiving certification as detectives. In order to succeed, they must work together to solve a series of puzzles and challenges designed to test creative thinking, problem-solving, ingenuity, and deductive reasoning. Ultimately, the group must solve all the challenges in the test to crack the case and prove their prowess as detectives.
Momentum is an inventive team building event where each sub-team will be tasked with designing and building a Rube Goldberg-style chain reaction machine to accomplish a simple task. Teams must collaborate and strategize together to not only create a successful contraption but also to out-design other teams and ultimately be declared the Momentum champions!

        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.
