Why plan an unusual team building event? 🤔

There are more than enough boring team building activities out there — we’re looking at you, trust fall. Instead of putting each team member on the spot, plan an unusual team building activity that will organically spark conversation, laughs, and an experience everyone won’t soon forget! 

Want to get some inside jokes going with your team? Once you spend a couple of hours hanging out with a zany Drag Queen there will be plenty to laugh about long after the event ends! The more unique the event, the more likely it’s a first for everyone on the team — which is more fun all around.

🌎 Hop on to Zoom and no matter where in the world your colleagues are, you can enjoy a unique and unforgettable team building activity!

Team building activities are vital to any team that collaborates and problem-solves together. You might be surprised at what you can achieve through an unusual team building activity.

  • An engaged and collaborative team consistently outperforms the competition in productivity, turnover, and even profits! 🤑
  • The more your team associates work with a good time, the easier it will be to come together as a unit when you’re under those tight deadlines. 🤝
  • Taking a break from work every now and then is a welcome sigh of relief, we all have to let go sometimes and just laugh at ourselves. 😌
