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!
What happens when you find yourself, and your employees in a work rut? Don’t worry, it’s pretty common. That’s why TeamBonding is here!

Let’s talk about these 4 tips for getting out of a rut at work!
Virtual Reality Now Available As A High Tech, High Touch Team Building Event Let’s travel in time back to the ’90s when Virtual Reality now known as VR concept was just a thought? There were some prototypes, but unfortunately, they were far from becoming a reality. The only VR devices that were on the market by that time were heavy, huge machines that weren’t portable at all.
I can get inspiration from anywhere but I never thought it would be from my neighborhood fast food place. Truth is, it’s not just my neighborhood restaurant, McDonald’s is one of the most successful worldwide brands and they just introduced a similar strategy to my company. Maybe they were inspired by us?
At TeamBonding we love having the chance to help our clients give back and helping their communities. It’s even better when we can help companies focus on their corporate social responsibilities and actually have an impact instead of creating vague initiatives. Part of the fun for us is coming up with new ideas and creating new programs to continue giving back. We have a variety of programs from our Charity Bike Build and Team Teddy Rescue Bear programs, Operation Military Care to provide care packages to our troops, all the way to Paws for a Cause where you make dog beds, pull toys, or cat scratchers for animals in shelters – among so many other charitable program options!
Mention team building and you’ll see a lot of eye rolls. Mention that you’ve planned a team building event and the room will fill with groans. To a lot of people, team building feels like a corporate buzzword synonymous with forced participation, uncomfortable interaction and just a means to an end. Some think of it as purely a waste of time, taking them away from work they could be doing.
