David Goldstein has had a truly fascinating yet very successful career. We are both opportunity junkies, so we discuss how when you're out there and living business, it is fun to see all the unique ideas you can come up with. David is a master of event planning, and a very cool person who has some great stories of "Serial Entrepreneurship" that he shares with us.
"Since the end of 2019, Boston-based TeamBonding has been offering a program dubbed “The White Privilege, Black Power Experience” to help open up those serious discussions that companies and teams should have."
Teambonding also offers baking and cooking team building activities centered around chocolate. In the baking challenge, guests are divided into groups and given a golden ticket containing their chocolate mission statement and target market segment. Each team has to create a box of chocolates for a section of the consumer market and develop a brand identity, marketing slogan, and packaging. Or try a Team Chocolatier workshop, where attendees learn everything from how to produce fillings like coconut, apricot, and framboise to tips on piping, shaping, and coating, along with package design.
TeamBonding has made its virtual experience as close to its in-person one by making the featured rooms extremely realistic, which in turn makes the stakes higher for many players.
"In our quest to defeat Zoom fatigue, we have a series of immersive events including our virtual escape rooms,” says David Goldstein, creator of opportunities for TeamBuilding. "These events pre-pandemic were a great way to bring people together, distribute strengths and share credit when working together to successfully escape the room. We've been able to recreate this feeling of competition and collaboration virtually and bring teams together, online."
