VBO Team Building

The Venture Back Office enjoys spending time together outside the office by participating in various team building activities.

In the past months we’ve held some team building events we thought we would share on the blog – we’re always on the lookout for novel ways to build camaraderie and help our talented associates collaborate seamlessly.  These are just two of our more recent events…

In September 2014 we held a team building event at Wine & Design.  This event allowed our team to participate in a “round robin” exercise where everyone eventually worked to complete pieces of art together.

 

In November 2014 we hosted another event at Whisk.  This time our team building consisted of a cooking class where everyone had the opportunity to work with instructors making an appetizer, main course and dessert.  While cooking, learning and tasting together we also enjoyed some exercises answering conversation starter questions and completing a group “mad lib”.

These team building events allow everyone to get to know each other on a more personal level, while building bonds that will typically carry over into work contexts.
