“Yes, my team LOVED the team building event. Everyone had a great time and it was great to see people working together that wouldn’t normally do so. I will definitely give you a call in the future if we are planning on doing this again. I have also forwarded your information to some of my colleagues. Thanks for a great time!” —S.F., Thomson Reuters
The newest addition to our acclaimed Team Cuisine series encompasses all of the proven team building components of our popular lunch/dinner events, but concentrates on everyone’s favorite part of the meal – dessert! Just Desserts is the perfect choice for an after lunch or dinner program, or as a refreshing way to break up a day of meetings. Preparing and sharing these delicious treats offers a fabulous opportunity for bonding.
Your group is first divided into teams. The fun begins right away as each team comes up with a team name, plus a unique team cheer or rallying cry. This in itself can be quite hilarious and helps set a tone of excitement and friendly competition for the rest of the event.
Next, each team is challenged to create desserts that look every bit as delicious as they taste. Every team prepares one or more mouthwatering treats worthy of a top French patisserie. Teambonding makes your job easy by providing all necessary ingredients, utensils, and recipes. Rest assured, every dish will be made from scratch. No slice n’ bake here – your group deserves the best!
Once complete, all of the tempting creations will be showcased on a Grand Buffet. Everyone can now sample each creation. Then in come the judges. The day’s champions are chosen based on product taste and presentation, with points also awarded for the leadership and teamwork that went into each team’s effort. We can also customize additional judging categories to help underscore a conference or event theme, company goals, or anything else you’d like to emphasize.
A short debrief follows, giving teams the opportunity to share their team names and cheers, plus discuss what they’ve learned about working as a team. We find there are always important lessons that any group can implement immediately once they’re back in the workplace. How sweet it is!
