Room Escape: A Novel Approach to Team Building

In recent years, events known as “Room Escapes” have exploded in popularity, not only as entertainment but also as effective team building events. Over the last decade, room escape events have seen a huge increase in popularity, with dedicated locations and organizers popping up around the world. A combination of physical adventure and mental challenges, participants are locked in a room and given a timeframe.

Post It Art for Children

Your group is sure to be inspired as you create artwork for children in area hospitals. But, rather than trying to paint or make sculptures, you will be making art out of nothing but post it notes! At the start of the event each team will be given an iconic image that is popular for children (Mickey Mouse, a Disney Princess, R2 D2, etc.). The teams will then use post it notes as pixels to re-create larger versions of the artwork. Even if you have little or no artistic ability, it won’t matter as you will get incredibly creative experimenting…

Our Favorite Places for Team Building in San Diego

We do our events in all sorts of spaces: hotels, offices, convention centers. However, one of the greatest parts about living and working in San Diego is the beautiful natural surroundings, and the even more beautiful weather to enjoy them in. While the rest of the country is huddling in coffee shops and pushing through snow drifts, we’re at the beach. As a team building company, we’re lucky to have tons of great locations in and around San Diego where we can put on our events. Some of the most popular places in San Diego for Team Building Events:   Gas…

Shoe Design – For a Great Cause

We do a variety of charitable team building events here and one of our favorites is the “Style Your Soles” event. Not only do participants get to access their inner artists while creating a design on blank canvas… shoes (sorry!), but they also get the chance to work together to create a marketing campaign for their creations, jingles, posters, and even commercials. A lot of us haven’t drawn on our shoes since we owned a pair of Chuck Taylors in middle school – you might be surprised to recall how much fun you can have… and how much your design tastes have changed! At the end…

Combining Team Building and Social Responsibility

Some of our favorite and most rewarding events that we put on are our Community and Social Responsibility events. In addition to our usual repertoire of fun team building challenges, the culmination of these events is when our clients have an opportunity to directly contribute to an organization they believe in. Feet First is lucky to have developed relationships with charitable, non-profit, and other meaningful organizations throughout California over the years. From The Boys and Girls Club of America to veterans’ associations, homeless shelters to animal rescue centers, we’re happy to work with our clients to find the organization that means the most…

Leading the Way in SoCal Corporate Team Building

At Feet First we always jump at the chance to share what we’ve learned and what we can offer. To that end, we were happy to represent Southern California team building at the most recent meeting of the worldwide Destination Management Conglomerate, SITE. In this instance, we got to do a bit of both: Our VP Warren Press was invited to participate in a panel on the benefits of team building, and afterwards we were able to share some of our favorite activities with attendees. In this case we brought our bucket of LEGOs, which goes down well regardless of your age. The…
