Operation Military Care: Video of the Week

Operation Military Care is one of our most heartwarming corporate event programs. Why? Not only do participants form strong teams by collaborating on challenges that culminate in the creation of care packages for servicemen and women who typically would not otherwise receive them, but also they are surprised by a military representative who speaks about the importance of the day’s actions. We often hear that there wasn’t “a dry eye in the house” because everyone was so moved, which is important because of the impact it has on the groups to know that they can truly make a difference as a team.  This program is a powerful reminder that philanthropy is worthwhile.

Gumbo Cook-Off: Video of the Week

When groups find out they’ll be making gumbo, crafting a team ‘restaurant’ name, and performing a commercial song for their chosen moniker, there’s always a buzz of excitement in the room. When delicious smells start to fill the room and teams start tasting their creations, the excitement builds. When the singing and dancing of the performances begins, the excitement includes wholehearted cheering. And when the ultimate winner of the Gumbo Cook-Off is crowned, well, you’ve never seen such excitement at a corporate event. Now that’s tasty fun!

Medal Games: Video of the Week

Got a team that’s ready for a physical challenge? Check out this video of groups swimming, leaping, running, and moving in unison, all in pursuits of a real medal! We offer a simply dazzling array of activities in our Medal Games program, all specifically geared towards building your team’s cohesiveness and success. As team members cheer on their peers and strategize their best possible approach to each challenge, they forge bonds that last. Seeing who’s adept in a potato sack race is just an added bonus!

Great Dining® Competition: Video of the Week

Never underestimate the power of creativity! Not only do teams get to cook delectable meals during this corporate event, but they also design a poster and commercial advertising for their newly-formed ‘restaurant’ to the rest of the group. In this video, which includes several large group Great Dining® events, you can see lots of clever names, from Heart of Sole (for a team that made a fish dish) to the Candy Café (dessert crafters) to Irene’s and Gio’s (likely the head chef of those teams). It’s one of the many ways we’ve incorporated different forms of creativity into our programs, to let the broadest possible spectrum of participants shine!

Corporate Events Go Green

“We all inhabit this small planet. We all breathe the same air. We all cherish our children’s future.” –John F. Kennedy

The web page for every program we offer here at Best Corporate Events includes a section called “Eco Elements” which details the ways in which it’s green. For example, all materials used might be reused, recycled, or donated. Or we may be able to theme the entire program around an eco theme. The biggest way in which we’ve upgraded our offerings, though, is by including iPads! Since the trivia questions, assembly instructions, and other information are now all on the iPads instead of printed; popular programs like Bike Build Donation and SmartHunts are entirely paperless.

When you’re looking for a team building program that fits your company’s needs, don’t neglect to consider whether your selection includes consideration for the planet.  Ours do, and we’re proud to explain how on every program page!

Expect the Unexpected

“No matter what, expect the unexpected. And whenever possible BE the unexpected.” –Lynda Barry

One of the most exciting aspects of our SmartHunt programs is the interaction with celebrity look-a-likes. In fact, injecting a dose of unexpected excitement is one of our trademarks, whether it’s real medals at the end of a competitive event, twists that improve collaboration during a professional development program, or amazing creativity during a team building challenge. Our corporate programs are incredibly well designed and delivered by seasoned facilitators – so clients get the results they’re seeking, every time – including laughter, surprise, and fun!

At a recent trade show, we extended this philosophy to our booth. There in front of our giant 7-foot iPad (featuring dozens of our programs) was Cap’n Jack Sparrow, one of the many actors on our roster of personable, talented performers available nationwide to enhance our programs. So take a look at what Best Corporate Events has to offer: you could find yourself dancing with Pee Wee Herman, dining with the Godfather, or boxing with Rocky when you least expect it. You never know!

Charity Miniature Golf Course Build™: Video of the Week

You’ve never seen a charitable corporate event quite like this! Check out the video of teams creating innovative golf course holes (out of goods that will then be donated to a worthy cause) and then playing their way through them all. It’s a spectacular way for your group to flex their creativity, show off their mini-golfing skills, present their ideas, and feel great about their social responsibility. Plus, we include iPads, which means teams can capture video and photos throughout, answer challenges, and get real-time scoring. It’s the only game of golf where everyone wins!

Fiesta Fun!™: Video of the Week

Very few corporate events end with all the participants happily munching on delicious chips and fresh guacamole, sipping on sangria, and enjoying other culinary delights, but here’s one that does all that and more! The Fiesta Fun™ program has proven time and again to be a grand time for everyone, as you can see in this video of teams singing, snacking, chopping ingredients, and receiving medals for their top honors. It’s a gastronomical, astronomically good time!
