The Team Building Team

In this series of articles we take five minutes to chat with a member of the TeamBonding team so you can get an idea of the sort of people we are. In this installment we talk to one of our facilitators, Chef Richard about building teamwork, meeting the goals of the company and his secret weapon…

What is your favorite part of working for TeamBonding?

As the Director of Culinary Events I have the greatest job in the world. You have heard the adage “Breaking Bread Together” meaning eating good food while getting to know someone better. I get to not only Break Bread but I get to “Make the Bread” with people I have not met before,  taking the old adage to a new level.

If you could live in a book, TV show or movie, what would it be?

I love to try foods I have never eaten before. I also love to travel to places I have never visited. These two passions would lead to the desire to live inside the TV show “Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmerman”. Traveling the world eating bugs and snakes, YUM!!

If you could take only three items with you on a deserted island, what would they be? 

A Hen, a Rooster and matches.  Eggs for Breakfast, Chicken Soup for Lunch and …well you get the idea

If you could time travel, would you go to the past or the future?

I would definitely want to time travel into the future. As a matter of fact not long ago some friends and I were discussing what you you do with one wish ( I think I need some new friends). My answer was to come back for one year every hundred years to see and understand what progress society has made.

What is your favorite four- legged creature and why?

My Bernese Mountain Dog “Souffle” She will eat anything.
