Building Relationship $500
During this team-building event, teams will be divided according to corporate objectives or randomly. Each group will design and decorate a cake utilizing various tools, fondant, coloring, candy and chocolate. Teams first compete in a trivia session that enables them to earn points and purchase items for decorating. Trivia can be general or corporate focused. Teams may also be assigned “market forces” cards that will become challenges that they need to incorporate into the design or process. Teams will be timed and will be judged according to time, creativity, neatness and alignment with overall objective. Group size 10-30. Program time: 2 hours.
Giving Back $500
Often relationships are built by coming together with the common goal of doing good for the community. Sweetology has partnered with It’s Your Birthday Inc., a non-profit that provides birthday parties for kids in crisis. These kids are either in domestic violence or homeless shelters. It is the belief of It’s Your Birthday Inc. that every child deserves a birthday. Sweetology has developed a team building program in which groups are assigned and given a cake design at random. Each of the cakes is themed toward a birthday cake for one of these children. The groups will receive limited instruction and will be able to use any of the materials in the store to execute their design. Teams will be timed and will be judged according to time, creativity, neatness and alignment with overall objective. Group size 10-30. Program time: 2 hours.
Speed Dating $600
During this team building event the focus is building relationships with a large number of people in a fast paced challenging setting. The individuals will be divided into group and will be rotated through groups. Each group will have 15 minutes to answer a small specific challenge. For example, sculpt a minion out of fondant that can be placed on a cake. Pipe a rose out of frosting. After the speed dating exercise, a larger team or teams will be formed to then create a cake design using the materials created during the speed dating exercises. Group Size 10-30. Program time: 2 to 3 hours.
High Performing Teams $750
High Performing Teams
In this active and engaging session, which emphasizes the attributes of high performing teams, your group will focus on hands-on coaching skills and positioning others for success. Teams will be established and then determine who among them will be positioned to craft the vision of the team and who among them will go to learn the hard skills required for execution of the vision. Once determined, the group will break out into skill building and design crafting sessions. For example, a Sweetologist will demonstrate how to create the perfect canvas, or how to pipe a border. While the skills team is learning new skills, the remaining teams are challenged to design a cake. The skills team will then be required to teach their team members the skill. Our 3-phased approach includes completing a challenging teambuilding activity, teaching another group the activity in real-time, and then engaging in a rich discussion for applying these principles in the workplace. This session highlights the benefits of sharing best practices while creating a bonding atmosphere, which includes celebrating the success of the entire group. Group size 10-30. Program time: 3 – 4 hours.
