This program is one of our Food Lover’s Team Building Programs

An exercise that brings out the best in your teams, engaging their energy and creativity through the vehicle of positive humor. Research has shown that humor, used appropriately, does more than create good will. It also dramatically enhances creative and cognitive thinking, builds rapport, and reduces stress. That’s why organizations that use humor well tend to attract and retain the best-qualified people and inspire them to excel.

The Premise

(Or One Customized To Your Business Model)

You are a group of doctors who are partners in a successful practice in Beverly Hills. A grateful patient has included a surprising gift for the practice in his last will and testament. This patient, a famous comedian, had long ago invested in vineyard land in the Napa Valley. Now his prime piece of wine country real estate is about to be inherited by the practice as a group.
However, the comedian included an unusual condition in his will. The doctors may only retain ownership if they create a new wine and market the wine in a humorous fashion. The name of the wine, its label design, an entire marketing campaign must be created and be FUNNY or ownership of the vineyard will revert back to the comedian’s estate.
The partnership’s reputation is at stake here – and your retirement fund! Can your teams save the day?

Minimum/Maximum Group Size: 10 – 70

Program Length: 2 hours approximately

Location: A private room in a restaurant, ballroom or meeting space of your choice.

Unleash your taste buds as you invent a new chocolate “Cure” sure to transform the modern world! This fun-filled and delicious program will energize your team as they unite to discover new healing possibilities in chocolate while utilizing key business processes.
Make no mistake; this is not simply a chocolate tasting! This is a multi-layered challenge where teams will be faced with a variety of business and marketing-based tasks – all of them heading toward the ultimate goal — a meltingly marvelous product that will revolutionize the way we view chocolate!
This activity simulates a complete business process from initial concept through design, production, marketing and promotion. It is done in a light-hearted and highly creative environment requiring cooperation, collaboration, business acumen and artistry—–and several pounds of chocolate!

The Process

The group is divided into teams. In a kind of chocolate treasure hunt teams are secretly assigned a unique flavor of chocolate and must find their chocolate amidst a sea of highly imaginative (not to mention delicious) samples. Then, using their secret flavor, relevant clinical data, ingenuity and their sense of humor teams must create and market a new chocolate remedy. The program ends with each team writing and performing a one-minute commercial for the other teams to view.

Minimum/Maximum Group Size: 10 – 70 (divided into teams of 5-10)

“Your team of mad scientists has created and refined a group of “magic compounds.” These compounds have an astounding number of applications. Their most unique application is their ability to be manipulated. They are also 100% edible.”

“As your team is heading to perform some additional experiments a crisis occurs. When your group begins to cross a river on their route a winter storm comes up, knocking down local transportation and major forms of communication, crumbling the bridge as they cross. Half of your team has made it across the bridge. The other half is now stranded. Your team must step forward. You must use your magic compounds to save your teammates, and the day.”

The Process

Given a large amount of chocolate and a variety of edible materials your group will erect a bridge. Coming from two different directions your team must build a bridge that meets in the middle.
