Medal Games: Video of the Week

Our facilitators have seen some simply incredible breakthroughs at Medal Games programs for corporations throughout the country.  From desk-bound executives finding physical skills they never knew they had, to quiet introverts giving full-throated cheers when their team beats their best time at an event, the memorable moments are many.

What we often hear, though, is how genuinely touched the winning teams are to receive actual medals colored bronze, silver, and gold.  Standing before their peers as a medal on a ribbon is placed over each of their heads in recognition of how spectacularly their team connected, came together, and aced challenge after challenge?  That’s what they tell us really sticks with them, even when they’re back at their desks, and we couldn’t be more delighted to hear it.

SmartHunts® Challenge – Find Paul Blart: Mall Cop

During one of our SmartHunts® programs in Washington, D.C., a team following the hunt map on their iPad® wound up in a mall. Their first challenge was to shoot video of someone using one of their company’s products.

At a recent SmartHunts event in Washington, DC teams were challenged to find a Paul Blart: Mall Cop lookalike.They looked around, and then one of their sharp-eyed team members started pointing and shouting excitedly in the direction of a rather rotund mall cop, who was holding one of the walkie-talkies their company makes.  As soon as they started shooting video of him, the man noticed and strode over, suspicious.  “Give me that,” he said gruffly, insisting that they let him hold the iPad so he could see what was on it.

They complied and started to explain about the high-tech scavenger hunt they were on, but fell off into silence when they saw what the cop was angrily staring at.  To the left of the video screen was a list of challenges the team hadn’t gotten to yet. The very next challenge was to videotape someone who looked like Paul Blart: Mall Cop.

As a few team members quietly giggled, the cop solemnly handed back the iPad, growled they should “leave the premises immediately,” and pulled out his walkie-talkie to call for backup.

The team won the Best Clip Award for videotaping themselves getting chased out of a mall by a cop who was using their company’s own product!

Bridge to the Future: Video of the Week

In a recent Bridge to the Future program, when we opened by telling a packed conference room of 500 people that they would be building a 215-foot bridge using only cardboard and duct tape, they laughed.

When we told them we were going to drive over their completed bridge in a full-size golf cart with their CEO sitting shotgun, they gasped.

When we told them our Bridge to the Future program would end with all 500 of them standing on the bridge at the same time, they finally realized we weren’t kidding.

You have to check out this video! Bridge to the Future is another trademarked program of Best TeamBuilding® – the leader in innovative corporate events.
