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!

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!

Best Corporate Events and SmartHunts® Hit the Big Apple!

“New York, New York! A helluva town!” –Bernstein, Comden, and Green, authors of ‘On the Town’

SmartHunts, our high-tech scavenger hunts featuring an Apple iPad for every team, are spreading! As part of our partnership with Planet Hollywood® and Buca di Beppo®, SmartHunts® are now available in Las Vegas… and the one and only Times Square in the heart of New York City!  Whether it’s sightseeing throughout the area and running into celebrity look-a-likes who help you on your journey or bonding with the Godfather’s ‘family,’ these programs are unique, full of energy, and incredibly fun! Plus, they actively make teams better at collaborating and sharing information.  We’re proud to offer SmartHunts that include dinner and drinks at a star-studded location, right in the heart of the Big Apple!

Catapult: Video of the Week

Never underestimate the power of positive rewards!  Just as they do in many of our corporate event offerings, the top teams participating in the Catapult program receive a real award medals for their success.  It’s a tangible way of rewarding active participation, innovation, and exceeding expectations, and it truly works – look at the grins on the face of the team member holding up his medal in this video!  Because the winners get to keep those rewards and bring them back to the office environment, they remain a physical reminder of the collaboration, fun, and learning at which they excelled!

Top Ten Events

“Learn to say ‘no’ to the good so you can say ‘yes’ to the best.” -John C. Maxwell

Clients often ask which programs are our best sellers, so we’ve launched a new page on the Best Corporate Events website: Top Ten Events!  It features our most popular events – with links to their individual pages containing full descriptions, videos, and requirements – and will be updated every six months with the latest data.  Looking for team building programs that have been honed to perfection and truly work?  You’ve found them!

Bridge to the Future™: Video of the Week

Sometimes, when you see numbers flash across a screen, they don’t have much meaning. So let’s put the incredible statistics in this video of our program Bridge to the Future™ in context.  First it shows 100 participants building a 56 foot-long bridge.  That’s the average length of a railroad car.  And the latter part of the video, 500 people build a 215-foot bridge.  That’s 2/3 the length of an entire football field, and our lead facilitator successfully drove a golf cart over this cardboard and duct tape bridge the entire length!  Check it out!

We Care for Kids™: Video of the Week

One of the beautiful things about every Best Corporate Events and TeamBuilding program is its customizability: from length to goals to debrief topics, we make sure it will precisely fit the needs of our client.  For the We Care for Kids™ program, further customization is possible in that there are many different possible items that can be built and assembled depending on the group’s needs.  From putting together stuffed animals to be donated to fire stations and crisis centers to comfort children undergoing trauma to assembling reading benches, school cubbies, or small rocking chairs for underequipped hospitals or schools, there are myriad ways to make this charitable program fit just right.  Check out this video, where participants make hundreds of these various gifts for those in need!

Best TeamBuilding and SmartHunts in Meetings Focus Magazine

“We just did a program… where half their group was in Calgary and the other half in New Orleans. They did a hunt together in two countries in two time zones!” – Best TeamBuilding CEO Scott Flynn, as quoted in the article

Last month, Meetings Focus magazine interviewed our CEO Scott Flynn for a piece about how technology has changed the face of team building.  The article, written by Paul D. Kretkowski, starts with our trademarked SmartHunts, the only offering which includes an iPad for every team.  It discusses the advantages of a paper-free program: it’s more immersive, better for the planet, can change on the fly, automatically uploads media and tallies scores, memorializes the event with photos and videos shot from the team’s iPads, and can incorporate local landmarks or present company knowledge in a fun way.

We are always delighted to get to enthusiastically share what we’ve spent several years developing into the only iPad-based proprietary scavenger hunt around – and why we believe its advantages make it one of the best, most technologically-advanced corporate events on earth!

Mural of the World®: Video of the Week

If you’ve never seen the Mural of the World® – or even any one of its individual four-by-eight-foot paintings – in person, this video gives a taste of just how impressive it is. With the signatures of thousands of participants filling the borders of each canvas, this collection is an incredible display of teamwork, philanthropy, and art. There’s simply nothing else like it.

Art of Giving: Video of the Week

Think your workplace has done every possible charitable CSR program? Consider our spectacular Art of Giving program, particularly perfect for teams who are not seeking a physically challenging event. As you can see in the video, our unique process is all but foolproof, allowing participants to have fun and be creative while still producing a beautiful final mural. And when the artwork is gifted to a worthy local hospice or public care facility, everyone wins.
