Frequently Asked Questions
Planning an event can be overwhelming. Lucky for you, we've done this a few times. If you have a question that isn’t answered here, feel free to reach out to us. We’re happy to help.
Over 20+ years, we’ve built a national network in of remarkable local facilitators from Boston to San Diego, New York to LA, San Francisco to Seattle, Las Vegas to Orlando and literally everywhere in-between. We have been to all 50 states and most Canadian provinces.
We do not host activities at our headquarters. However, we are where you are. Close to home or away at your company retreat or a sales convention – no matter your location, TeamBonding is there with you.
One of our greatest strengths is that we come to you. Many of our programs can be done at your office, depending on how much space is available. Other times a nearby venue makes more sense. We’ve staged successful events at countless hotels, restaurants, convention centers and theme parks across the US.
Our professional facilitators are a special breed – intelligent, articulate, contagiously energetic and unfailingly gracious. Each has the experience and sensitivity needed to balance corporate realities with pure, unbridled fun. Each is equipped to keep your comfort level very high while achieving the desired results. And each is on a mission to make sure your TeamBonding event will be the first of many.
We’re glad you asked. That’s where experience counts. We really pride ourselves in being able to match your team with an event that is both fun and beneficial, that meets your budget and desired outcome. We work with you to assess your needs and recommend the best options from over 100 tried and true team building events.
Looking for something you don’t see? Sometimes clients wants to build bikes, blankets AND teddy bears, no problem, as we create our own events, we can tailor an event to your needs. That’s how the Big Give was created – a client just like you, wanted more.
No hard sell from our team – just a desire to make sure that we can understand your needs and passion to deliver a program that exceeds them.
How much time do you have?
Typically the average is 1 – 2 months with some clients planning 6 months or longer. We can do anything in our repertoire with 2 weeks notice and most everything within a week. Remember, we jump through hoops for a living. For the record, our record is 6 hours notice for Play the Blues in Washington, DC for the Congressional Record.
On a page of frequently asked questions, pricing is the question most frequently asked. The short answer is, ‘ it depends’. Our goal is to help you choose the right program for your team. There are lots of variables to consider: which program? for how many? how long? your location? what materials will we need, or will you be donating to a charity? Your account manager will help you narrow down the options, fast.
Looking for a ballpark? Our professionally facilitated programs start at about $40pp with a $2,800 minimum. We can get you a quote quickly so you can see what’s possible. We have quite a few options one of which is sure to fit your budget.
You can also access free resources or check out our DIY online store to check out downloadable options, or materials that we can send out. Prices start at $7.00.
The length of typical programs ranges from 1.5 hours up to a full day. Our most popular programs run 3 hours or less. Just like everything else, we can tailor to your timeframe.
We also need around 2 hours for setup, along with an hour or so to break everything down afterwards.
Absolutely. We can creatively incorporate your tagline, new product launch theme or other branding elements into pretty much any TeamBonding event. Some clients even ask us to customize entire games or activities to support specific messaging. Every solution is different – we’d love to talk about yours.
Many of our programs include a competitive element. Winners are typically determined by accumulated points throughout the event. It’s never obvious which team is winning till the very end, because teams have a wide variety of opportunities to earn points – some objective, some more subjective. But the competition is always friendly, with the ultimate focus on the outcome.
We don’t furnish prizes, aside from bragging rights. Some clients do choose to sweeten the pot by giving out modest prizes to winning teams. We suggest keeping the cash value of these prizes low — $5 – $25. Gift certificates for Starbucks, iTunes or any local business work well. Another popular approach is to make a donation to a local charity in your winning team’s name.
Some of our programs were designed with a specific charitable partnership in mind. But we’re happy to work with the charitable organization of your choice. If you don’t have one, our event managers contact charities local to you and recommend a good fit.
Done correctly, a well-chosen team building event can be a game-changer for any organization regardless of type, size and dynamic. We specialize in programs with a proven track record in creating long-lasting positive changes that showcase the benefits of team building and why it is important.
