We Wrote the Book on Corporate Team Building®

Perfect weather, beautiful beaches, and meticulously maintained parks are only a few of the reasons why San Diego is a wildly popular business travel destination for corporate groups. Companies can find industry-leading team building activities in San Diego offered by Best Corporate Events for their corporate meetings.

Get your group together and choose from charitable, professional development, culinary programs, and more. Our CSR programs help your team to contribute to the greater good by helping those in need through team building activities like We Care for Schools and Bears & Blankets programs. Take your group’s energy to the next level with an Igniting Team Performance™ event.

If your group wants to explore the city, then we will provide iPad® devices for a high-tech team building activity like City SmartHunt®, allowing your team to collectively explore areas like Balboa Park or the San Diego Zoo. We also offer a high-energy Amazing Chase SmartHunt® to forge deeper bonds between your team members with a unique, memorable experience. One of our most successful large corporate events in San Diego was an Urban Hunt for 850 people starting at the famous Midway Art Walk.

Any of our diverse live programs can be delivered fully face-to-face with health and safety measures in place. Many can also be delivered in a hybrid format if some of your group will be together and others will be joining remotely.

Not able to gather in person? Our Virtual Team Building and Virtual Training programs can provide your group with a fulfilling and engaging experience remotely – anytime, anywhere, worldwide!

Popular Team Building Activities in San Diego

While we can deliver any of our professional development, SmartHunts, or team building activities in San Diego, here’s a quick list of our 10 most popular programs in the city that never sleeps.

Bike Build Donation®
Take part in our signature corporate social responsibility (CSR) program, the Bike Build Donation®, where teams use engaging audio/video clues and fun challenges to assemble bikes for children in need. With over 20 years of experience, our facilitators use proprietary apps and Apple iPads® to make the experience even more exciting. Every bike comes with a helmet and bike lock, and the finished products are donated to a local charity.

Team Olympics
This set of fun and engaging team building games combines high-energy competition with basic athletic ability. Your group will have a blast as they compete to stand on the winner’s podium.

Groups employ teamwork skills and iPad activities to earn the materials necessary to assemble, test, and accessorize new wheelchairs for donation to veterans’ organizations and others with mobility challenges. Check out one event in action in this news video.

This high-energy event will bring out your group’s competitive spirit as they work together to design, build and race their very own “seaworthy” vessel! Once their initial rafts are built, it’s literally sink or swim as each team takes to the water to test their craft in an effort to identify possible design flaws before the races begin! When the heats start, the excitement mounts—which crew will take home the gold? This dynamic team challenge will test each participant’s problem solving skills and creativity.

Operation Military Care
This event will give your group a deep sense of patriotism as it works together to prepare care packages for people currently serving in the military. Teams will first engage in various point-based activities including trivia, puzzles and other problem-solving scenarios delivered on iPads. The care packages are then assembled and decorated for donation to service men and women and their families.

Fiesta Fun
Fiesta Fun! is an energetic event immersing corporate groups in the vibrant ambiance of Mexico. Teams engage in a contest to create their own signature salsa, guacamole, and golden margaritas. Participants partake in team-building activities, concoct unique recipes, craft a brand identity, and capture memorable moments on iPads. Culinary creations are presented to judges for evaluation on creativity, presentation, and taste, rewarding winning team members with culinary masterpiece medals.

Donation Nation
Transform your team’s positive energy and build great team spirit with engaging team building activities leading up to the assembly of care packages for a chosen charity. Charities may include hospices, food banks, animal shelters, and more. When possible, participants will hear from a passionate representative from the charity, creating an inspiring and heartwarming event.

City SmartHunt®
Not just your average scavenger hunt, we use state-of-the-art Smart technology to create a corporate event your group will never forget. Teams are given Apple® iPads® loaded with interactive features like audio, video, text messaging, and GPS to help them complete challenges, find items and local landmarks in Nashville, take photos and video of their expedition, and more.

Bridge to the Future
Bring your team together for a fun and creative project with a twist. Build a bridge that can hold the weight of your entire group, using only cardboard and duct tape. Each section will be an artistic representation of your mission and goals. Get ready to walk on the bridge, test your teams’ work and collaboration, and take unforgettable photos!

Tapas and Sangria Making
Emphasizing creativity, delegation and teamwork, Tapas and Sangria is a program with a lot of punch. Your group will be formed into “wineries” tasked to develop, make and market their own brand of Sangria. Each winery will also make tapas from cold ingredients – no recipes provided! The event will close with a tasting contest and awards presentation for Best Tasting Tapas, Best Sangria and Best Marketing Campaign.

      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.
