Yesterday we received an email from a client about her experience with our charity bike build. As per usual, the email was forwarded from our Event Managers to our Client Solutions Managers to our Facilitators on to our Production Team and then circulated around the rest of our office. Each forward contained a message of support, congratulations and thanks for a job well done. One particular message stated, “This is probably the best review I have ever read.” Could that be true? I have included it below – you can decide.
“Hey Stephanie and THANK YOU! What a most magical, moving event you provided for us. I think the bike building will go down as one of my favorite moments in my life. Completely moving. It was so put together. Deric was awesome. Connie was fantastic, as well as the other leaders. We just all had a blast. I would recommend you to anyone! Do you happen to have one of the pictures Deric took at the end? I can’t wait to see those kids’ faces again.”
As the founder of TeamBonding, I have seen and heard a lot of praise in the past 20+ years and I have to agree, this one could be the best review I have ever read. It has it all, the kids, the facilitator adoration and the part about how organized the team building program was. Plus, she said that our bike building event was one of the favorite moments of her life. Wow! Now that is why we do what we do.
We have a lot of testimonials for our team building exercises that come from emails like this following great events. Each of these testimonials is a true testament to the success of the work that we did for a company and we have so many more that we don’t publish on the site.
Each one of these testimonials represents an event, one that was first handled by the Client Solutions Manager who identified the perfect fit for a company’s needs around building teamwork. Then conversation was transitioned to an Event Manager who worked on all the details to get a team building program ready for the Facilitator. Then the Facilitator led the team building exercises and eventually Accounting billed and paid our expenses. Everyone on our team is a part of your success and we love getting emails like the one we got yesterday… and the day before… and the day before that.
We love what we do and what we do is make your teams more successful. We bring your team together using the Power of Play. While your team reaps the direct benefits of long lasting bonds, our team shares in that success. Do you have any success stories that you’d like to share?
I’m Joyce Ngo – public relations enthusiast, student, and currently TeamBonding marketing intern. This summer as part of my internship I will be focusing on social media and bringing the experience of the events and programs we do to the mass public from my perspective. You’ll get a behind the scenes view of what happens before the event and the preparation that goes into it. I’ll be posting blog posts about my observations and experience at each event. Basically, you’ll get to see what Joyce the Intern sees, no fluff. This time I went to a Team Teddy Rescue Bear.

Corporate Social Responsibility: Corporate Social Responsibility refers to the idea that a company or corporation has a moral obligation to give back to their community. Some companies are more aware than others when it comes to the importance of corporate social responsibility. One of the most notable is Haagen-Dazs, an ice cream company that prides themselves on using all natural ingredients. What then makes for an effective CSR program?
Giving back to our communities makes you feel good, assists in making you more socially aware and helps you bond with your colleagues as you team up to help those in need. Charity is beneficial for both humanity and business for many reasons. When you participate in Corporate Social Responsibility team building activities, you get the best of both worlds.
Imagine if you will, that it’s 2006 again. The housing bubble has just burst, and the US economy is teetering on the brink of what will end up being the greatest financial crisis since the Great Depression. People are scared for the futures of their companies, and are cutting corners at every possible turn. No one is very eager to spend money on team building.
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 with our Director of Facilitator Training, Paul Giroux. We sat down with him for five minutes to learn about everything from his favorite memory to the most important thing in life (family). (more…)
