David loves to network and decided TeamBonding should be an exhibitor at one of the largest networking events in New York, The Event Planner Expo in early October. Mark and Kevin were excited to demo one of our most popular events, Ice Sculpting. Little did they know, David was going to show up too!
We asked him a few questions about his experience at the Expo.
What made you decide to exhibit at The Event Planner Expo?
I actually saw mention of the Expo on a friend’s Linkedin profile and then found the site, read about the attendees and the exhibitors as well as the location. I thought it would be worth exhibiting to see many of our New York clients, as well as meet new ones!
Who was your favorite speaker?
I had the pleasure of meeting, Amy Landino, who I really enjoyed talking to about how important video is for online presence. I was also able to relate to the event stories shared by speakers Lauren Goldberg and Daniela Grafman.
How does it feel to see your team in action?
I was thrilled to see Mark, our Master Ice Sculptor share his passion with booth attendees, who were able to experience carving ice for the first time. It was a proud moment to witness Kevin recognize and be recognized by clients like the New York Jets, who he facilitated an event for. You can read more about that experience here.
Did you discover anything new at this Expo?
Well, yes, not a professional find but I discovered Du’s donuts, which was almost worth the price of admission!
What was your favorite part of the whole day?
How was your overall experience?
The speakers+ parties + the Expo = a good combination and high-quality exhibitors and attendees. I would definitely go again and have a TeamBonding exhibit. I am looking forward to what we can demo next year!

One of the most crucial factors in the success of your business is how well your team works together. Corporate team building can be an effective and transformative strategy for helping business executives and their employees to feel more invested in their careers and each other.
How does the power of play influence success at work? Many people are working longer and harder, thinking that this will solve the problem of an ever-increasing workload. But they are still falling behind, becoming chronically overwhelmed, and burning out. Work is where we spend much of our time. That is why it is especially important for us to play during work. Without some recreation, our work suffers. Success at work doesn’t depend on the amount of time you work. It depends on upon the quality of your work. And the quality of your work is highly dependent on your well-being.
How to embrace team collaboration? For an organization to run smoothly and meet its goals, it is important to foster a work environment that supports collaboration amongst colleagues. Unfortunately for most organizations, this does not occur naturally, and thus you must make an effort and take steps to help build and sustain a cooperative work environment.

A Company Culture One of the most important aspects of any successful organization is to have a clearly defined company culture. Office culture can influence and be influenced by many things including the type of communication within an organization, the types of events you hold for your employees, and the standards you hold your employees, too.
