We all know that food and drinks bring people together, but with a culinary experience, whether you are a group of coworkers, friends, family or neighbors, you can take it one step further.

Culinary Team Building

Preparing a meal together in our kitchen is a fun, engaging way to practice all of the important things teams do together in the workplace: decision making, problem-solving, collaborating, innovating, giving and receiving help from one another.

Culinary Learning Workshops for Teams

Thought Design’s Culinary Learning Workshops for Teams teaches your team critical lessons in team building, synergy, communication and change management in a series of brain science-based learning sessions and discussions.

These two-part workshops start in our Learning Lab, with thought-provoking learning and hands-on exercises, then move into our Culinary Studio, where this new knowledge will be put to use to overcome various collaborative kitchen challenges. Each workshop culminates with a meal, dessert and debrief that applies the meaningful session material to a relevant, and delicious scenario.
