Intergalactic Adventure Team Building Program:
totally enjoyed it, Dan Silvert kept it real and his scenarios were
lively and spirited. He discussed key feedback, formulating trust and
ensuring best practices. Everyone was excited about the findings of the
session and it was the 1s time they were all together. It was a great
way to end the overall meeting and everyone left with team united-ness.
The activity helped us understand that we need to stick together to make
it work. We cant wait to work with you again.

Intergalactic Adventure and team challenges were spot-on for what we had
set out to accomplish with our time there. Andy Kraus did a great job
matching our needs with the right program for team forming. And Merrick
Rosenberg was absolutely excellent at facilitating the day. We
definitely felt like our investment in the day was money well spent.
Were hoping to bring this group back together again after the first of
the year for Accountability and DISC.
