Teambuilding - Urban Techno Hunt
Teambuilding – The Urban Techno Hunt

With Easter five weeks away, parents everywhere are planning their kids’ scavenger hunts this year. Using those small real chocolate eggs (and/or the colourful plastic ones too). And kids everywhere are excited to be on the search to collect the most eggs e-ver (or at least for this year!).

With the Spring (officially arrives March 20th!) weather nearing, Chicago’s Corporate Event Interactive (CEI) offers a variety of scavenger hunts for all those “big kids at heart” out there. From Elvis Has Left The Building to 80’s Time Machine, there are plenty of team-building activities that will fit your corporate objectives. With The Hunt for Sam & Frank; A Culinary Adeventure, you get to scour all over town as teams to solve clues in finding these two villains. Meanwhile, The Urban Techno Hunt lets teams hit the city streets in search of historic and interesting locations and new challenges, equipped with a pre-loaded iPad. There are so many outdoor (and indoor) team events to pick from!

Teambuilding fun!

Team-building and Team Bonding – What’s the Difference?

What’s the purpose of your next team-oriented event? How do you want your team members to come together? We came across this book, SmartTribes: How Teams Become Brilliant Together, that helps event meeting professionals to answer such questions. According to New York Times best-selling author, Christine Comaford, she helps to explain the significance between team-building and team bonding attributes.

Comaford says “We use a team-building event in order to further the ability to work together.” She adds that “gaining new skills, fostering trust, shifting behaviors and designing a shared future are characteristics of a team-building event. We are investing in building and enhancing the performance of the team.”

While Comaford explains “team bonding is an opportunity to build deeper relationships, play and let off steam. Here we are investing in the team’s understanding of and connection to one another via a shared experience.”

With CEI, the company offers a wide range of teambuilding events that foster the importance of working together, building trust and developing continuous confidence. From scavenger hunts to socially-responsible events to workshops and retreats, CEI can work with you in choosing the right fit for your organizational needs. The CEI team is here to help.
