Thank you Luis and Phillip for your fun and interactive sessions with our Team! Not only did we have a great time, the feedback has been that everyone learnt something new that they will incorporate into their daily outlook moving forward. Finding great ways to connect in this new virtual world can be challenging and the FUNdamentals team did a great job of facilitating and showing us that this could be done!
We used PLAYshop for our virtual conference as an element for team building and it was AWESOME! As much as you can get engagement in virtual environment, these folks will achieve it! It was so much fun and wonderfully facilitated! Would most definitely recommend!
This was absolutely what I was looking for as a tool to use with my team! So much fun, very interactive and great energy. Amazing takeaways and learning while also team building and having a riot. Highly recommend!
The FUNdamental Virtual PLAYshop was a great way for our department to re-connect as we have been working from home since March. It really exceeded our expectations! The technology aspect was seamless with lots of breakout groups and was really well organized. The games were fun and interactive, even though it was virtual. Many of the staff are commenting on how much fun they had & how nice it was to be able to interact with their co-workers after such a long time without seeing anyone. Luis was very energetic, knowledgeable and made us all feel comfortable to push outside our comfort zone to really have fun with it. I would highly recommend this to anyone who is looking to learn and have fun too!
Luis and the team at FUNdamentals did an amazing job. The virtual event was super easy to coordinate, there was flexibility in tailoring the event to our specific needs and the FUNdamental's team communicated very well throughout the process. Our session definitely met our team building needs with a number of highly engaging & fun activities that made the time fly by.....lots of laughs, smiles and fun had by all. Highly highly recommend!
Virtual PLAYshops are a wonderful format for groups to connect and to add a twist to monotonous communications we have on a day to day basis. Whether you are looking for a breather or a gig to re-energize the team, this is the best thing you can do for your team!
The staff at FUNdamentals absolutely EXCEEDED my expectations - they were engaging from the start! From their excellent taste in music, to their upbeat personalities our virtual event with them was FUN FUN FUN! They were flexible with our group size, and made this virtual experience really feel like we were able to connect with our employees. I would definitely recommend them to work places who are looking to forget about what's due next week and want to sit back and be able to play again!
