BUILDING CHOCOLATE BRIDGES

Thanks you so much for your assistance in making our Teambuilding event a success. A special thanks to Gene and Sharon for their warm and humorous introduction. They really softened up the crowd and brougth out the laughter in my collegeaus. They are extremely talented in their profession and I would recommend them to anyone. The event brought about a comic relief and informative approach to how teamwork benefits us as an individual and as a group. I thank you very much for sharing with us.

- AW, GlaxoSmithKline

Philly Hops truly made our meeting memorable. The team building activity that Philly Hops conducted for us was both exciting and educational for our guests. Philly Hops took control of the entire activity for me. All I had to do was bring the group! I am very thankful to the Philly Hops team for all of their hard work. Thank you!

ADVENTURE MAPS

First let me say THANK YOU for such an incredible ?team building? experience. The staff enjoyed the time they spent with you and your team, and I echo their sentiments.
While we all loved the Adventure Map activity, we also enjoyed the experience with the warm up/team building challenge Helium Stick. To this day, we have translated that experience into our day to day work routine and have resolved that as a team we can move mountains if we would only listen clearly to the leader!!!!!!!!! So I thank you for sharing your wealth of knowledge with us?..it was a fun day!!

ANYTHING GOES TREASURE HUNT

Philly Hops provided great customer service and was very accommodating. Our team loved the Treasure Hunt, and thought it was really engaging and fun. We?d definitely recommend it for a fast paced, team building exercise that provides a lot of energy and reinforces collaboration and team work

– HD Johnson & Johnson

I just wanted to thank you and your staff for facilitating a fun and enlightening teambuilding event. The MC set the stage for the day by immediately getting everyone engaged and laughing. The photo scavenger hunt proved to be a big success and now the pictures are proudly displayed in our break room. It was evident that you did your research on the town prior to the event and it was very much appreciated.

The goal of the day was to get to know others in the department and work together as a group. Our planning team feels our goal was achieved because of the positive feedback we received and the fact that team members are still talking about some of the “photo- shoots” taken that day.

– Sharon S. Merck & Co., Inc.
Our department had so much fun! Each team had unique experiences to share, and the situations that were given were funny and novel, which allowed each team to be creative. Our event leader kept the mood upbeat and energized, and gave clear instructions/expectations. We had a blast, laughed a lot, and it brought our department closer. In fact, several team members asked where I found Philly Hops as they are considering using them for other events, and everyone was talking about it the next day at work! Thanks for helping us create an outstanding event!

I wanted to take the time to thank you for an enjoyable and successful team building event on April 30 @ Hyatt Morristown.
I received positive feedback about the exercise, your attention to detail and the way you provided everyone with a way to interact/communicate with each other.
The end result we learned how to have fun and not take everything so seriously.
We could not have asked for a better outcome.
Looking forward to a continued relationship and future team building events with Philly Hops.
Thank you  for everything.

Thank you so much for your support of my recent team-building event. Your assigned facilitators were extremely effective in getting the team energized and engaged from the outset. Equally important, I truly appreciated the manner in which Remo was able to translate the “fun” part of the activities to the business imperative I was seeking to emphasize – the importance of
employee collaboration and engagement, and timely decision making. I look forward to working with Philly Hops in the future!

- CS, Bristol Myers Squibb
It did everything I wanted it to do, barriers were brought down and people got to have fun. We used the words that he left us with for the rest of the meeting. Thanks!

The facilitator was energetic and kept the group focused the entire time. People commented on how much fun they had in such a short period of time, and everyone learned about each other?s strengths.

YOU’RE IN THE GAME

All I can say is WOW! Our team-building event, “You’re in the Game” that was held in mid-July was a huge success thanks to you and your outstanding facilitator Rob Fletcher. The afternoon was filled with energy, excitement and of course friendly competition amongst the teams.

Due to the team dynamics on the new N-Zone program here at Wawa, I was very anxious and a bit nervous about how everyone would interact with one another. Rob did an amazing job engaging the whole team in a series of “Ice Breakers” which really paved the way for an awesome afternoon!

I have received so much positive feedback from the event and I can’t wait to work with you to plan the next one. Thank you so much for making our initial team-building event a huge success!

Sincerely,

– D.D., Wawa Food Markets

Thank you for your help in putting together the Express Scripts wine tasting event last month. Everyone had a great evening and enjoyed the event very much! It was great working with you and I’m particularly grateful for your ability to accommodate us on such short notice as well as for the professionalism exhibited by everyone connected with the event. The MC, sommelier and restaurant staff were wonderful, as was the food and wine!

Thank you to you and your training team for a completely successful Team Building on Tuesday. The response from our managers was enthusiastic and unanimous. The program addressed all the goals we discussed during the planning phase, and the exercises were pertinent, instructional, and entirely entertaining. Our Wine tasting, blending and marketing segment provided a great conclusion to the day, inspiring creativity and laughter from beginning to end. Compliments to you, Jennifer and Gene for a job well done. I will whole heartedly recommend Philly Hops for future team building events.

Our Wine Maker?s Challenge event was a success for several reasons:

Philly Hops is a Top Notch Professional company willing to customize the program to our needs. They employ courteous, professional and helpful people to present an event second to none!

The cooking dinner activity was more than a terrific teaming exercise?we cooked a 5-star meal. Great fun! Thanks!

- PM, Project Manager, Leadership Development

I would like to express my appreciation and thanks for the wonderful event earlier this month. The time that you took to understand our client group and our retreat team building objectives paid off handsomely. Not only were you and Gene well prepared, but you did an excellent job of facilitating us through the cooking experience. The group had a fun, special evening that exceeded our expectations and brought home the team building themes so important to our work this year. The bonus was the wonderful menu and the delicious food! Many thanks,
- RJ, The Napa Group
I?d like to thank you and your team for creating and delivering an incredible teambuilding event for our management team. We all thoroughly enjoyed cooking our own meal; it was a positive and unique experience that we will remember for a long time.

I would recommend your company to anyone who is looking for an exceptional teambuilding event. You listened to us and heard our requirements, brainstormed ideas with us and then took everything from that point and turned around an excellent product in approximately two weeks.

Our cooking event was initially met with skepticism by our team, but you quickly turned our team around and got them excited about the task of cooking dinner. Once we got down to business, there was no stopping this team. We created and ate a great-tasting meal.

At the conclusion of the event, our team realized that we are able to achieve anything we put our minds to. Cooking was a task so far removed from our daily work activities, yet we were able to rise to the challenge and achieve our desired results ? as a team! We discovered positive things about each other that we normally wouldn?t in the work environment and the activity definitely resulted in a greater sense of camaraderie amongst the team.

Please feel free to have any of your prospects contact me for a reference.

Best Regards,

- Greg G., IXOS Software, Inc.

Everyone had a terrific time at our cooking team building exercise. I have been to a lot of team building events in my time, and I have never heard so many people be so positive about one. I got so many compliments from the attendees. Almost unanimous approval is hard to come by. I really appreciate all your efforts to make this work?being flexible about using the country club, talking our Sr. VP out of making it a competition, etc?.You made me look good!!

People enjoyed it so much; I have had requests for the hors d?ouerve recipes. Would it be possible to get a copy that we can post on our intranet for the attendees to download?

Best regards,

Betty Robinson is a joy to work with — tremendously responsive and totally professional. A Gem! This was our third event with Philly Hops — each one topping the one before it. I can’t think of a thing I would have added or changed but if I could I know I could count on Betty to do it.

I sincerely appreciate the quality of the programs and service that you provide employees from Glaxo Smithkline. Your programs are different from most vendors and that is what we particularly like when we are looking for events for our employees. You take time and customize according to the needs of our groups. Several of those that I have recommended you to have commented to me that they were very pleased with the programs that you set up for them. Many of these events were targeted for our employee?s teambuilding efforts and from what I understand from the feedback it certainly achieved their goals.

My thanks to you for addressing the leisure and team building needs of our employees and I continue to look forward to working with you.

- CD, GlaxoSmithkline

How can I begin to express the gratitude I have for you and for all your hard work on the Avaya Communications event we did in June? You absolutely outdid yourself and my only hope is that I?ll have another event ?soon? on which we can work together!

Your attention to what our needs were throughout the planning of the event was outstanding and you handled everything with what seemed to be great ease! You exceeded my wildest expectations? and then some! For that I am truly thankful.

Your thoroughness with planning, securing and executing the arrangements required was incredible. From transportation and costume-guided tours for 500 guests as they made their way to Memorial Hall for the party, to actors greeting guests upon arrival and later performing the re-enactment of the signing of the Declaration of Independence ?everything was handled with meticulous professionalism!

I applaud you and all those you hired to make this happen. It was an affair to remember. I thank you from the bottom of my heart!
