Popular Team Building Activities in NOLA

While we can deliver any of our professional development, SmartHunts, or team building activities in New Orleans, 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.
As seen on the popular TV game show, and adapted for team play, your group will participate in rounds of fast-paced tabletop challenges. The competition heats up as one-minute games are practiced and scored using commonplace items like pencils, plastic cups and a deck of cards. Teams will cheer and have a blast as they vie to be named A Minute 2 Win It! Champions!
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.
Mini-Golf Build and Food Donation is a fun charity team building program where your group will design, construct and play a mini golf course using canned and boxed food items. Working in teams, each hole has a special theme and rules, unique to that hole. After the course has been built, an entertaining tournament ensues with scoring and fun competition. Once completed, the course will be deconstructed and the food donated to a predetermined food bank or similar organization.
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.
This engaging get-to-know-you event incorporates a series of fun and challenging icebreaker activities, which are conducted in small table group rotations. After every 15-minute challenge, teams are quickly reformed and a new challenge begins, allowing for maximum networking opportunities. This team building program is a fun and engaging way to strengthen bonds and encourage open and productive workplace interaction.
Your group will star in its own Amazing Race with this exciting, technology-driven scavenger hunt. Once divided into teams, participants are given iPads loaded with instructions to navigate a custom route. Along the way they’ll hunt for clues, complete photo and video challenges, answer quiz questions, solve puzzles and more as they race to cross the finish line first. Ready, set, GO!
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.
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.

        Goals and Outcomes

        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.
