Rich Rininsland chats with David Goldstein, the Founder and C.O.O., Creator of Opportunities of TeamBonding about his origins in the entertainment industry, his favorite moments in team building, and how the industry is changing as we speak.
David launched the business in 1988 as a natural extension of the work he had done in the corporate entertainment industry. His early creations included scavenger hunts, customized murder mysteries, game shows, and many other unique group activities that clients started to request as team building.
Now his company boasts a catalog of innovative events using the power of play as a learning tool and tapping into the correlation of work and play. He says he is guided by Plato’s credo: “You learn more about a person in an hour of play than in a year of conversation.”
David is quick to move with the times, consistently bringing new and innovative ideas into the team building industry. In 2020 alone, TeamBonding released this Team Building Around the World Podcast, a Webinar Series, TeamShare Activities, and was among the first to originally have virtual events even before the global need for it arose. No matter where your location, TeamBonding has a proven solution to build your team.
" We really were in it almost before it started. Nowadays, people talk about company culture, employee engagement, employee retention… all the things that are important to companies now is important to companies in the past. But when they started to look more into it, and realize what it took to keep employees happy to keep them working together, to build their business, they realized that they needed to keep the people that were working with them happier, more engaged and get to know each other better."- David Goldstein
