Our clients are always looking for new ways to combine the enhanced engagement and incredible value of team building with fresh, exciting feel-good ways to give back to the community.
After the successful launch of our Playschool Playscapes give-backs in 2016, we made it a goal to enhance all of our growing suite of team building activities to include a give-back component.
We debuted this project earlier this year in partnership with Marriott as part of a global sales meeting here in Vancouver.
The group was on a tight timeline to tour Vancouver, network, visit multiple hotel properties, and add a charitable component as well.
Our solution was using our Goose Tour guides to energize, excite and enhance the transfers and missions where guests had to earn pieces of clothing from each hotel by answering trivia questions about the property.
At the finale, the teams dressed mannequin with their completed outfits. The most complete and stylish outfit was awarded the win!
We realized we could then take this creative concept and apply it to the standard version of our uber popular mobile app based scavenger hunt - Capture U!
Guests were welcomed by our awesome facilitators, broken into teams and set off with iPads in hand to capture photos and videos to locate and complete our fun missions.
These missions were meant to foster community, show off the city, and promote a fun, competitive team dynamic. Of course, we added our creative flair with animations manned by professional actors in character as everything from Yoga Gurus, to Game Show Hosts, to Artists, and much more.
Along the way, teams again collected different articles of clothing to complete their outfit for donation. At the end, we were able to donate 19 complete outfits to Dress for Success in Vancouver.
This is now a permanent activity we offer to promote community engagement and support women in need, as well as just an awesome way to network, bond as a team and enjoy Vancouver!
