Steve Jobs famously said, “The only way to do great work is to love what you do.” Whether or not you’re an Apple aficionado, the insight that productivity stems from enjoyment is something to keep in mind in planning your own corporate events.

When you’re planning your next team building activity, whether it’s a weeklong corporate conference or an afternoon offsite, make sure that it’s something your employees will look forward to attending by following these tips from City Beach:

1) Give Your Employees a Say: Don’t plan your event in a silo – ask your attendees to vote on what they’d like to do for their event. Rock climbing? Wine tasting? They’ll love having a voice, and it’ll make the decision making process easier for you too!

2) Mix it Up: Did your team go on a Bocce Ball outing last year? Do something different this year! You don’t want to get into a rut, and your team will enjoy bonding over something new.

3) Spice Up the Food: How many cold cut trays and boxed lunches can anybody eat in a lifetime? Try something different, like a picnic or an ice cream bar to energize the team for the rest of the day!

4) Ask for Feedback: One thing’s for sure – there will be more corporate events in the future! Ask attendees for feedback about what worked and what didn’t work so that you can use their feedback in planning the next event.

5) Reach out to City Beach: Our event planning service staff can work with you to plan your best event yet!

Engaging your employees to participate in a team event they will love will translate to productive and great work back at the office. Happy planning!

Team Building Partnership Programs

Wednesday, March 5th, 2014

Do you like chocolate?  Do your managers like wine?  Do your co-workers love to dance? City Beach has partnered with TeamBuilding Unlimited to offer fun programs that will enhance communication, relationships, self-esteem and social awareness. Your co-workers will strengthen key skills as they listen, learn, persevere, perform and/or encourage in a relaxed fun-filled environment.

 

All of these teambuilding events are created especially for you to reflect your company’s objectives and goals.  This includes specific jargon, culture and personalities.  The following details the new programs City Beach is offering in collaboration with TeamBuilding Unlimited.

 

CHOCOLATE! THE ULTIMATE CHOCOLATE TASTING!

(Can be combined as a Chocolate/Wine Pairing event)

Groups of 10-150

 

A tasting tour through the dynamic and turbulent history of chocolate along with instruction on how to enjoy and appreciate high-end chocolates.  Can be done as wine/chocolate pairing.

 

AMERICAN TEAM IDOL/ SO YOU THINK YOUR TEAM CAN DANCE?

Groups of 10-200

 

In this amazingly fun team building activity, teams will become musical song and dance ‘experts’.  Each team will write the lyrics to a song about their group that will later be performed by each team in front of the other teams. A keyboardist will provide and accompany the teams with the melodies.

 

In addition, each team will be coached on dance steps and choreography to accompany their performance. Our professional musicians and choreographers will help your group explore their creative side!

 

Prizes will be awarded for the ‘Best’ Song and Performance.

 

CUSTOMIZED INTERACTIVE MURDER MYSTERY

Groups: 25- 200 participants

 

Mystery events start at reception and finish by the end of dessert. We recommend a plated meal. There are no real breaks in the action or the service of the meal, since your guests are encouraged (but never forced) to become the stars of the show. The microphones are actually for them, so they can get focus quickly. Of course we have actors, director, AV tech and more, plus we do prizes for the winning table.

 

Each table is a team, and there are usually 4-5 crimes during the course of the meal. Your guests are the detectives as well as suspects, but they’re never the victims (They would be dead and have to miss the party!) Because the event is written about the guests, they will become involved in the action. Everyone loves talking about themselves—and so many people love to be in the spotlight!

 

BRIDGE BUILDING: BUILDING GLOBAL BRIDGES

Groups of 10-200

 

Team Dynamics and hands-on construction create active learning and total team participation.  Teams are challenged to construct a BRIDGE that promotes leadership, communication and ingenuity. The process is grounded in both the reality and uncertainty of the task. Each team will be given specific standards that must be provided with the finished bridge that spans global ‘proportions’

Varieties of thematic and inspirational TeamBuilding activities that make use of different forms of building materials are used to create unique, stylized objects. The process of building becomes a metaphor for your corporate goals, whether it is a bridge to the future or the new company gym. BRIDGES TO THE FUTURE.  All materials and prizes provided.
