Working with Luis was a pleasure! He is a total professional and our team loved the full day Storytelling PLAYshop we did with his team. I would highly recommend him!
Thank you to Luis, Phil and Emmy for a fantastic PLAYshop! We had so much fun while also learning the importance of positivity, engagement, communication and achievement. After three long years of working through the pandemic, this was a great way for us to reconnect, destress and simply have fun. We have not laughed like that in a very long time. Thank you!!
We had FUNdamentals come in to do a Teamwork PLAYshop with our team for half a day. It went better than I expected and I had high hopes! Our employees loved it, our management team loved it and we definitely plan to use their services again! The activities were very relevant to our company and our team and brought us closer together. Thank you so much!
Our store management team completed the "Teamwork" PLAYshop during our national conference. Our team bonded while learning and playing. They were engaged during the 3 hour session and left feeling energized and ready to take on one of their toughest seasons! Between the facilitators positive attitude, the engaging and educational content, and truly "fun" activities, we highly recommend this to anyone looking to reactivate that team spirit, especially after years of remote working.
The Psychological Safety session was great. Luis & Philip were really engaging with high energy and able to engage our participants easily. It was a great session with them.
We booked the Recess Playshop for our team of roughly 150 people. It was a great way to get people moving, interacting and reconnecting. ESPECIALLY after being remote/hybrid for so long. Our team can be a little introverted but the funcilitators got them engaged and having fun with ease. We loved working with FUNdamentals of Play! Thanks for making our team building so fun!
