Choosing a Great Team Building Venue

»Posted by on Apr 8, 2014 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

As a member of the San Francisco Bay events community, I am privileged to work at some of the finest hospitality venues in the world. Our diverse landscape includes world-class hotels, resorts, wineries, parks, and event centers that are virtually unmatched in terms of their amenities and physical beauty.  With the confluence of so much high-level corporate business happening within 15 minutes of our office in San Jose, the competition for your all-hands meeting or 5 day retreat is fierce. When you add in our team building services (and we really hope that you do), you have the makings of a logistical situation that bears careful examination. With so many options at your disposal, choosing the best venue for your team building event can be a daunting task.  Some...

NCAA Final Four = Team Building Success!

»Posted by on Mar 31, 2014 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

As a lifelong athlete and somewhat obsessive sports fan, I am always fascinated with the NCAA tournament.  This year, like most, has been an amazing collection of twists and turns and Cinderella stories. I went to the University of Arizona for a couple years, so that really is the team I follow the most.  Unfortunately, they lost in overtime to Wisconsin in one of the best college basketball games I have ever seen.  For those who aren’t so into it, the Final Four teams play next weekend in Texas to determine the national championship.  Those teams include Florida, UConn, Wisconsin, and Kentucky. Watching Kentucky win a thriller over Michigan last night, I was struck by the parallels between what TeamBuilding ROI does and what these college coaches do.  In...

On March 21, my oldest surviving relative, Albert Schwartz, passed away. He was 94. Albert leaves behind a legacy that is unique and inspiring. As a Jew during World War II, he helped liberate concentration camps while having to hide his religious heritage for fear of being captured and immediately executed.  He also led the fight in 1962 to make El Paso, TX the first desegregated city in a former confederate state.  Needless to say, he was a brave and brash man who took risks. But there was another side to Albert.  He owned 4 department stores called The Popular Dry Goods with his family in El Paso.  He was the President of the company and, in the words of his surviving niece, “the heart of the store.” Albert was quite literally loved by his 4,000...

Dad…what do you DO?

»Posted by on Mar 20, 2014 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

My kids are curious about everything.  Always have been, probably always will be.  Intellectual curiosity is certainly something I was taught to value, so I have generally tried to instill the same thing in my children.  So, when I started TeamBuilding ROI with a couple friends in 2011, they asked me: “What do you DO for a living?” The short answer was (and is) that I help people work together and find common ground, away from the office.  But do I really?  I mean, that sounds really high-minded and important, but it doesn’t necessarily fit the vision I had as a kid of how I was going to “Make a Difference.”  “Change the World.”  “Be a Rock Star.” TBROI believes that we make a difference in the lives of our...
