BonaVista Pools is a Pool Construction, Service and Maintenance company. We have a pretty big crew with a wide variety of personalities. You wouldn't be able to tell that though at the PLAYshop as everyone participated fully and with great enthusiasm. We have 2 more PLAYshops and I cant wait to see how they turn out.
Luis & team brought their A-game into our Teamwork PLAYshop! Their captivating facilitation effortlessly led our inter-departmental group of 25 to be open, engaged, and comfortably vulnerable with one another. Through PLAY and thoughtful discussion, we had the opportunity to connect and relate to one another on a level deeper than that which the workplace environment can normally offer. The interactive 4-hour engagement session enlightened the AEO Canada team with both theoretical and experiential understanding of the crucial role that POSITIVITY and TEAMWORK play in our achievement of organizational goals, as well as on an individual level within our personal lives.
The Fundamentals of Play team bring a great energy to each session. The way they communicate their message through activities and games makes the learning fun and engaging. I have liked the way the team connects prior to the planned session and will customize activities to relate to your work/role/environment. We have enjoyed both in person and virtual sessions. Looking for opportunities to work with Fundamentals of Play again! Thanks!!
Our team and our company as a whole has gone through a lot of changes and rapid growth. The Teamwork PLAYshop was a unique & AMAZING way to bring everyone together to learn and have fun as one team. We learned how to adapt to change, have a positive attitude & work better as a team. What a great program! Everyone had so much fun, it was so interactive and upbeat. I would recommend this to any business or team who wants to be more productive and cohesive at work, and many of the skills apply to personal lives as well. Thoroughly enjoyed the experience and would definitely book them again!
Luis worked with me on a short timeline to deliver an excellent Storytelling PLAYshop that was extremely well received. It is evident that Luis is a well organized, client focused and engaging facilitator. The session was fun and interactive and encouraged everyone to participate. We challenged each other & did so in a way that promoted positive reinforcement and growth. The amazing insights that result benefit the group and enhance team outcomes. I would highly recommend working with Luis with a small and large groups alike!
Luis’s PLAYshop had our whole team interacting and bonding in the most fun ways possible! The valuable information on innovation through the lens of play and mindfulness is already paying dividends for our marketing team! PLAYshops push you to grow as a team & have a great effect on team morale and the workplace environment. Highly recommended!
