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…

Sonoma and Bay Area Team Building Events

As Summer fades into Autumn what better way to boost energy levels than one of Feet First’s team building events? On site or off site, large groups or small groups, we pride ourselves on the engagement of our clients. If you’re not enjoying yourself we’re not doing our job! To that end, we’ve facilitated a variety of events in Sonoma County and throughout the San Francisco Bay Area over the last week. Invariably, we end up enjoying the events as much as the participants.. which is why we love what we do. One of our recent groups taking part in…

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…

Teams work together throughout the year but during the summertime in Southern California and the Bay Area our team building clients get to take advantage of the beautiful weather and surroundings as they make their way through the day’s activities.

Team Building on the Beach

Summertime is here, and as usual, we’ve been burning up the beach, running great team building events. We took a group out to Santa Monica beach and put them through a series of our classic Survivor Games. 50 participants took part in team games as well as games for the entire group. During the event we used our brand new wooden Scrabble set, where team members are given a theme (such as “Sports Teams”, or “Movies”), and then have two minutes to build a huge crossword, spelling out as many theme-related words as they can. Our new, custom-made Beach Scrabble…

Stopping Hunger and Giving Back to the Community

Team building events are about more than just running around on the beach or in a field, playing games and laughing as people fall over each other. This company chose to have their team bond over something different, more meaningful: helping those in need. In Orlando, Tampa Bay, Phoenix and Chicago, over 250 employees went to work making meals for people in need. Packages containing soy, rice, vegetables and vitamins were packed and sealed, ready to be used in case of emergency or natural disaster. Over 100,000 meals were made in a single day, and this company made 1 MILLION…

Taking place on the USC campus in the heart of Los Angeles, the games begin and only one team will win! 250 new students of the three core groups of the Business School’s graduate program compete for bragging rights as they take each other on in a winner-take-all bout of Survivor Games, which aside from being fun also create a firm bond between the core group members, a bond that is felt throughout the…

Neither Snow nor Rain…

Everyone loves a good day of team building on the beach, but this company showed what they are made out of, when they decided that a little bit of rain wasn’t going to get in their way. 45 team members staked their claim in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park, and they didn’t even let the constant drizzle get in the way of their Survivor Games and the Minute to Win games.
