WHY OUR CLIENTS LOVE US
Thank you so much for doing such a great job with our event! The feedback across the board was positive and the energy in the room was fantastic.
- Hewlett Packard
"The event was a smashing success! From our Senior Leadership Team all the way down to our newest employees, everyone bought in to the program and got involved. Exactly what we hoped for!! We are so glad we selected the ice cream challenge it was so much fun. We had an open bar during the event and every single team’s ice cream was booze-based…tells you a lot about our staff haha. It was great working with Team Bonding and Recipe for Success. You are seasoned professionals that make the planning process so easy. I will always recommend you anytime a client or contact is in need of a teambuilding event. Thanks for everything! The event exceeded our expectations – truly appreciate all your help and assistance."

"Soup to nuts, everything went really well and the team had an amazing time!"
- Kintai Therapeutics
This year's Team Cuisine was a complete success! Chef Stewart was very well received, and he delivered in his most professional, gracious style as usual. He certainly has a way with "younger folks", they actually stop and listens to him! Also, the timeframe used was perfect! Steve and I were very pleased.
The ice sculpting event was a huge hit with our group! Mark and his team did a great job delivering the event and keeping the group on track.
- Novartis Pharmaceuticals Corporation
The session went very well and Richard did a great job. I look forward to the opportunity to work on similar events in the future.
- Transformation Associates LLC
Thanks again for everything….people have been talking and laughing about the event all day! Many have commented on the fact it was by far the best corporate event they’ve ever been too! Thanks for helping me look so good.
Everyone was quite pleased. Chef Craig and his assistant were awesome and I could not have asked for a more perfect event.
- Glaxo Smith Kline
The ice sculpting as an activity was a big hit. I got endless comments on how unique it was and how much everyone enjoyed it. This activity was great because it didn't alienate anyone or create any awkward situations where people are put on the spot, or where un-athletic people are uncomfortable, etc, as some teambuilding activities tend to do
It was a pleasure to have you host our team event. We are still bragging about it. Hope all is well.
- Siemens Energy
Thank you for your follow up; we had a nice event overall! I appreciate all your help in the planning of it. I received some positive comments from participants during the event such as: fun, different, well organized, creative, niice level of interaction, never did a team event like this before!
Our office is still buzzing about their cooking experience. EVERYONE that participated had a wonderful time - no complaints coming from anyone is just amazing! People who didn't really know one another are striking up conversations.

Again, thanks for helping to make our meeting fun and successful!"
