To me the holiday season starts and ends with Thanksgiving. It is a holiday that brings people together, families, friends, co-workers. It is a time when and if possible, we are together with those that mean the most to us and this holiday really hasn’t fallen into religious or retail exploitation.
It started yesterday when the TeamBonding event managers, account managers, production people, interns, and the behind the scenes people here at TeamBonding came over to my house, brought food and wine and shared stories and laughs and enjoyed each other’s company. It means a lot that we work hard to make our clients look good and build teams within your company and bring people together through the power of play.
The holiday continues when our people can be with their families and take a little time to be with the ones that they love and love them. I am grateful for the opportunity to work with great clients like you, employ great people, create and innovate new ways to bring your teams together and really appreciate you giving us the opportunity to share our knowledge, passion and talent with your team. I am also grateful for a talented team in the office and our facilitators in the field and for new clients as well as the repeat clients who trust us year after year.
Here is something that we did to thank you for working with us. Happy Thanksgiving!

Virtual Reality Now Available As A High Tech, High Touch Team Building Event Let’s travel in time back to the ’90s when Virtual Reality now known as VR concept was just a thought? There were some prototypes, but unfortunately, they were far from becoming a reality. The only VR devices that were on the market by that time were heavy, huge machines that weren’t portable at all.
I can get inspiration from anywhere but I never thought it would be from my neighborhood fast food place. Truth is, it’s not just my neighborhood restaurant, McDonald’s is one of the most successful worldwide brands and they just introduced a similar strategy to my company. Maybe they were inspired by us?
At TeamBonding we love having the chance to help our clients give back and helping their communities. It’s even better when we can help companies focus on their corporate social responsibilities and actually have an impact instead of creating vague initiatives. Part of the fun for us is coming up with new ideas and creating new programs to continue giving back. We have a variety of programs from our Charity Bike Build and Team Teddy Rescue Bear programs, Operation Military Care to provide care packages to our troops, all the way to Paws for a Cause where you make dog beds, pull toys, or cat scratchers for animals in shelters – among so many other charitable program options!
Mention team building and you’ll see a lot of eye rolls. Mention that you’ve planned a team building event and the room will fill with groans. To a lot of people, team building feels like a corporate buzzword synonymous with forced participation, uncomfortable interaction and just a means to an end. Some think of it as purely a waste of time, taking them away from work they could be doing.
