I have decades of experience creating and producing online marketing. I left the corporate world to work independently with people who need help establishing and maintaining their online presence. Not everyone knows how, has the aptitude, or time to learn how to use online marketing tools, and nor should they have to try. Those people who need help and/or don't want an in-house marketing team work with me. Each client has different needs, goals and expectations. I do custom work for each of my clients. I get to know each person and know their voice, their style, rhythm and budget. 

I have a large skill set that covers the range of tasks for online marketing. It is both easy and cost efficient to work directly with me. I can get the whole job done.

Street Art is one of those things I love about the city

 graffiti city tour sf - team building

First Amendment (aka 1amsf.com). They guide your group in hands-on workshops introducing the city’s graffiti and street art culture. Your teams then design their “art” and message, and after an introduction to stenciling and a little spray can control practice, “do their thing” on an (authorized) exterior wall or on take away canvases… or on t-shirts, totes… or whatever you think you can get away with. 

Workshops can be at their gallery or they can come to you, or can include walking tours of some of the best SF street art. They seem like really cool and genuine people, so… do that. :)

Talking and Laughing While Eating is Fun

 AVITAL TOURS IS ANOTHER GREAT GROUP THAT DELIVERS FUN UNIQUE TEAM BUILDING EVENTS

Every so often I come across a good team building idea and feel compelled to write about it. Here’s one called Avital Tours…

DINNER-MAP-AVITAL-TOURS-PROGRESSIVE-DINNER

Take your “team” (minimum of 8, maximum of 100+) on a guided four-course progressive meal exploring an iconic San Francisco or Los Angeles neighborhood. Their “energetic” guides (their word) will not only fill your group in on the area’s culinary history, but will facilitate your employees to engage socially, to increase interaction, and build communication and relationships… and so in theory will increase creativity, collaboration and productivity when back in the office.

But… forget about the “why you are doing it” during the team building… it’s fun, great food and alcohol pairing, sparkling conversation, laughter, breaking down walls and all of that jazz. And besides, you have to eat anyway.

Each course is served at a different restaurant, so your team members sit next to many different colleagues throughout the tour (and depending upon the size of your group, walk or ride to the next course with a different group). Avital Tours takes care of all of the logistics, so you don't have to worry about restaurant reservations, ordering from menus, waiting for food to arrive or dietary restrictions (they figure all of that out ahead of time).

Lunchtime, afternoon, and/or dinner times are available; engage during work hours or after hours. And… although at the moment it’s San Francisco and LA… that will eventually grow. www.avitaltours.com

Access to Private Wineries, Gardens, Estates and Much More

Verve Napa Valley

OK… you booked your group in Napa. Now what do you do? You want to do something different, something memorable and cool? Ask people who know what they are doing. The people at Verve know what they are doing. They will design a program for you, get access to artisan wineries not necessarily open to the public, get access to private estates, gardens, art collections… organize team building events, barrel tastings, transportation, and all of that really good DMC stuff. www.vervenapavalley.com

Napa (& Sonoma) Valley Bike Tours

If you (and your team) really want to experience why they came all the way to Napa Valley in the first place, then a guided, casual bike tour is a perfect solution. Cycling slowly down backroads between vineyards, sights, sounds, smells and all, is a completely different experience than rushing through in an air-conditioned vehicle. You literally can stop to smell the flowers.

Napa Valley Bike Tours can customize your event for your group’s unique needs and abilities. Do a team building thing or just relax and visit wineries selected for their hospitality. The guides are friendly, knowledgeable and non-judgmental when you decide to ride the van home after winery visit number three. www.napavalleybiketours.com

Napa Valley Wine Train

Your group can buy out a car or an entire train. Do teambuilding (the cliché is the Murder Mystery thing… but being a cliché does not mean it’s not great fun… or a wine tasting/food pairing, or… whatever you and the absolutely wonderful Train People can dream up. And you can do this while enjoying fine dining service, multi-course meals cooked to order, Napa Valley scenery and exquisitely restored antique rail cars.  Their marketing prose says it’s faithfully restored with Honduran Mahogany, so there is that too. Lots of options at www.winetrain.com

Event-Style Real Escape Games

Speaking of stress… imagine you are in a submarine lodged in a seabed fissure. If you can’t find a way out, you will sink like a rock and suffer a horrible death by suffocation. Or maybe you and your colleagues (that you don’t really know very well) stumbled into the wrong village only to find that it is about to be taken over by werewolves.

I have enough problems of my own without inventing any new ones, but oddly enough there are a lot of people who not only find this kind of horrific dilemma valuable as a team-builder, but also think it’s fun. If you are one of those, then welcome to SCRAP ENTERTAINMENT and The Real Escape Game. http://RealEscapeGame.com

Their event-style games are great team building opportunities for any group. It's an exciting way to spend time with coworkers and most importantly the group will have a wonderful shared experience (assuming they survive). This is a very mobile game style and they can fill a variety of venues while accommodating anywhere from 20-300 players at one time.

Actual Real Escape Rooms are currently located in San Francisco, San Jose, Los Angeles and Toronto, but they can come to you and tailor the experience/game to your needs.
