Our Go-Kart Competition now features Apple iPads® delivering text, audio and video clues, exciting gaming challenges, car trivia and the ability to capture and save all your memories of this truly heartwarming event with photos and video of your team in action.
Each team develops a blueprint design that must be approved by Event staff for safety. The concept car must have a chassis and body. A teammate will be in charge of making sure the car is built within budget. Each team will need axles, wheels, limited lumber and tools. Materials are “purchased” from the onsite marketplace and bartering will be enthusiastically encouraged.
Team members must build their racecar according to their blueprints. While the car is under construction, other team members will decorate a uniform with the team’s theme. All cars must pass a safety inspection before they will be allowed to race. Once the racers have passed inspection, drivers will suit up and prepare for competition. Teams will race against each other and the clock to see who will make it to the final Winner’s Circle. Award medals will be presented for Best Pit Crew, 1st Place Finish and Best Overall Team.
“Light is the task where many share the toil.” -Homer
If you’ve seen any of the photos or videos of our corporate programs, you’ve probably noticed that there are often huge groups, hundreds or even thousands of participants, pictured. We call ourselves large group specialists because our team building events have been carefully crafted to work for a wide variety of group sizes and because our facilitators have extensive experience handling stadium-filling crowds. We often hear clients marveling at how easily the Best TeamBuilding® facilitators instantaneously captured the attention of eight hundred employees who tend toward distraction. Each program on our website (bestteambuilding.com) shows exactly how many people it can accommodate, with numerous options for groups of a thousand or more. So don’t worry about your group size! We love a challenge – and we love exceeding your expectations even more!
Sometimes people have a negative association with the very idea of “team building” – often because they had a corporate team building experience in the past that they found did not help their work. Here are some of the ways Best TeamBuilding fights this connotation (and items to look for when considering who to hire to run your next corporate event).
Expertise. Our programs are based on a needs assessment of your group. Our Professional Development division ensures that even our most fun programs were designed with team building in mind. Our expert program creators and lead facilitators average over 15 years of experience each. And we are always able to adjust on the fly because we know what works and why. You will always have our team’s top-notch knowledge working on your behalf.
Relevance. Elements of our programs tie together in ways that often astonish our clients. From the very first icebreaker, every task supports the professional development goals we’ve been asked to focus on, from collaborative idea sharing to trust and accountability. Participants have a ton of fun, but they don’t feel like their time was wasted.
Equality. Our programs are never a place for upper management to belittle their workforce, nor a touchy-feely emotional rollercoaster; instead, they provide powerful playing fields where teams forge connections, learning about themselves, others, and the group as a whole.
It is our pleasure to be the largest team building company in America and we work every day to prove that, in our hands, “team building” can be a positive and powerful (and fun) experience for your team.
