Inspired Networking

There’s a new type of dining experience for your team, one that is a foodie’s dream and a one-of-a-kind culinary adventure.

The Progressive Dinner is fast-paced fun as you share a different table with different people for each course: appetizer, salad, main course, and dessert. Each course features a tabletop game or exercises for everyone to do together. It is all carefully designed to encourage team interaction and fun while improving team skills. “Cocktail Party” is the communication icebreaker that starts the evening off right with a fun and energetic game for the entire group.

Our event managers can tailor the icebreakers and energizers to meet your goals of the networking dinner or just having team fun.  Depending upon your group size, each participant will dine, laugh and play with over 40 new people! Think of it as a speed networking dinner. Our customized software helps design the seating so people don’t sit with each other twice. This excellent progressive dinner can be done in the restaurant of your choice, a hotel banquet room, or even in different restaurants for each course. Our energetic and fun emcee/facilitator leads all tabletop games and exercises, coordinates the changing of the tables, and even works with the venue on the timing of the courses.

Our Progressive Dinner has been responsible for thousands of friendships, and hundreds of success stories of long-term relationships. Now it is your turn to be one of them! This dining experience is a fabulous way to have fun, celebrate successes together, or energize your next meeting, off-site or executive retreat.
