Play the ultimate April Fools’ joke on your entire company.Don’t let anyone in on the joke! At your kick-off event, dinner or just during a meeting break, we’ll simply have you introduce our corporate impostor Tom Hayes to your audience as a newly hired executive, overseas director, industry consultant or expert in your field. The speech begins: very seriously, covering hot company and industry topics you provide. Your audience will find it very believable. It will be absolutely convincing using jargon and terms specific to your business or industry. This part runs about 5 minutes and then the fun really begins.
The speech slowly starts sounding more and more ridiculous. The impostor will start to slip in a few jokes here and there and then, things get down right outrageous! Everyone slowly figures out it’s a prank and start to realize that they are being “put on”. The impostor will cleverly let them in on the joke and reveal that he is a comedian and a magician, much to the relief of the crowd (cue the unanimous “April Fooooools’!” exclamation from the event organizers). Not what they expected at all!
This is a great morale booster, adding a nice dimension to the whole notion of team building and a twist on corporate entertainment. Time to sit back and enjoy the show!

When a team is not actively communicating, their work is at stake. It’s important for everyone to learn how to communicate effectively in order to work effectively. (more…)
Team building brings people together by encouraging collaboration and teamwork. Fun activities that help people see each other in a different light allow them to connect in a different setting. People on your team are asked to think about the implications of these activities at their workplace.
