Discover Financial Services on their Team Challenge

“Taking my staff out of the work environment to perform out of the ordinary tasks was a success!  It was the perfect platform for giving them an opportunity to problem solve, work collaboratively and build trusting relationships.  Team members were able to gain skills that allowed them to identify barriers to accomplishing goals and come up with ways to overcome those obstacles.  The skills that they practiced from participating in fun and challenging events can also easily be transferred into the workplace.  Additionally, it made them aware of the resources that each team member brings to the table, and the added bonus was that it was all done in the spirit of fun!”
Regina R., Field Trip Team Challenge Organizer

“The event went really well.  Prior to the event, the 18th floor was super quiet.  Nobody really knew each other and they pretty much kept to their individual groups.  The day after the event we had a large meeting to run through the status of our new code and most of the previous night’s participants were there for that meeting so instead of it being a room full of strangers, everyone had pretty much met the night before so it was a great atmosphere.  I also noticed that for the rest of the week, as people walked through the office, they were greeting each other and saying hello.  And at the holiday party on Thursday night, there was a lot more mingling and conversation amongst our division.  It seems that some folks made new friends.  So I would say the event was perfect.  The office feels more like it used to.  Thanks again to you and your folks.  It was exactly what we needed.”
STRATA on their Off Site Team Challenge

"Thank you again for making our event such a huge success. I have heard nothing but great feedback about the team activity. People loved it and you guys rocked it! THANK YOU!
I will definitely keep you guys in mind for future events and I am certain that others in the organization will as well."

BP R&M Projects Community Team on their Mousetrap Race Car Challenge

“To be able to have fun and get to know the communication styles better of your co-workers is a tremendous step forward…  From my perspective, this is the easiest event that I have ever had to organize.  You made the process very simple and the fact that I could show up and participate with the team and not worry about details was wonderful.  I would highly recommend your organization to anyone wanting to conduct a teambuilding event.  Even though the games were fun, we were learning the core essence of teamwork without being in a stale classroom environment.  So often when those are the only environments you have, there is a lot lost in translation!”

You put on such an amazing event for the Ounce.  The praises continue to roll in.  We are so grateful for your careful planning and perfect execution of our corporate barbecue.  From the moment I stepped onto the grounds, I witnessed WCF staff busy at work.  You seemed to know exactly what needed to be done.  You made certain our needs were met, and you were right there to offer assistance with whatever task was at hand.  You are PROS at what you do, and we take our hats off to you!  You truly took care of us and our families.  The children were engaged every second.  Parents had fun, but were completely relaxed at the same time.  And staff members who didn't bring children or spouses also had a ball!"

Sheraton Chicago Hotel & Towers

"I wanted to let you know that my group had so much fun on the Taste of Windy City Scavenger Hunt.  They said it was the best team building event they had ever been on.  Your people are great and made it such a memorable event.  Everyone said they wished I had booked you for a longer period of time.  You can imagine their surprise when I told them that you custom designed our event for the 4 hour period since your program usually runs 2-3 hours.  The champagne toast on the Hancock Observatory and the Hot Dog topping sites were among the teams' favorite spots.  Most of our people have not spent a significant amount of time in Chicago so they thoughtthis venue provided an exceptionally fun way to get to see the city.  We also enjoyed a very dramatic, edge of the seat ending since our teams are so highly competitive.  Laughs and a good time were had by all.   It was a pleasure working with the wonderful people at Windy City Fieldhouse.  Thanks once again for your thoughtfulness and for making our event a memory our people will hold dear for years to come."

“All of us at TouchTunes want to thank you for such a successful event.  I had many skeptical participants in the beginning and at the end of the day everyone just could not say enough about the great day they had.  Everyone really got to know each other and really had to work together to achieve their goals.  This was a great accomplishment for us since many of these people do not work together on a day-to-day basis.  You guys really came through for us and we really appreciate it.”
Touch Tunes


"Everyone who participated really enjoyed themselves and seemed to feel that it was a perfect bonding experience.  I know personally I would not have made as many close ties with the people in my group as I did because of the scavenger hunt.  From the sales pitch to the completion of the program everything ran smoothly.  Everyone that I dealt with from your organization was friendly, professional, and quick to help.  I have absolutely nothing bad to say about the entire experience.  Thank you so much for helping me to pull off a great evening event."

"The evening event was terrific. Stephanie did an excellent job to ensure that everything ran smoothly and she helped out in many ways that went above and beyond. The games were a success, the dealers friendly and knowledgeable, the DJ was great, photo booth fun, raffles fun and overall a successful event. It is rare that attendees hang in until the end of a company event and in this case, the majority of the attendees stayed to play and network. Our Executive Vice President and host seemed quite pleased that his staff enjoyed themselves and got to know each other by playing together at the game tables around the room. Thank you and the staff for a terrific evening."
