Complete your next company dinner with sweet sangria history and some tasty competition! Did you know that the US recently surpassed France as the world’s top wine consumer? Foster creativity, celebrate teamwork and excite your taste buds with one of our best culinary team building events, the Winery Team Challenge.
This savory team bonding event kicks off with a brief, interactive intro to the history of wine, given by our knowledgeable sommelier. Your team will then be put to the test during an exciting game of sangria trivia! The challenge heats up when participants are divided into separate teams, where they will compete to create and market a tasteful winery.
Before creating their own blends, each group will visit the ‘marketplace’ where they will stock up on all necessary ingredients. Once teams have perfected their fruity sangria, they are challenged to add an artistic touch by creating winery logos and decorating their tables and aprons. They’ll also write and perform a jingle or commercial to enthusiastically sell their product to the judges.
After the final challenge, The Sangria Taste Test Contest, winners of each contest are announced with great anticipation. Teams receive awards in three categories: the winner of the Sangria Trivia Contest, the Best Marketing Campaign and Best Tasting Sangria!
What is your favorite type of culinary team building event?
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.
We have an exciting year of trade shows lined up! From ice sculpting demonstrations to battling with bows & arrows, our team is ready to bring the fun to these events across the country. Will you be in attendance at any of these shows?! If so, be sure to swing by our booth and say hello!
When it’s summer time, head outside to enjoy the rays and blue skies. DYI (Do it yourself) outdoor team building is a great way to learn new activities while surrounded by fun company and building strong bonds.
Communication affects teamwork in positive and negative ways. The quantity and quality of communication within a team and from leadership affects teamwork. The more collaboration your projects require the more assertive and intentional your communication should be. Every member of the team needs to take the initiative to communicate. 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…)
