Avison Young Build-A-Bike Team Activity in Toronto Canada

Avison Young Team Activity in Toronto Avison Young’s emerging leaders (called “Young Guns”) met in Toronto for a week of team building and development. Char Fortune, Director of Learning and Professional Development, chose to start with a Build-A-Bike ® team activity.

The event started with a pun-filled memory game exploring leadership tips, specially customized for the Young Guns. Then the teams created flags with names like, “Dam Beavers, Southern Shotguns, and Char’s Stars.” In addition, Avison hired a camera crew to document the team building, fun. and philanthropy. There were many extra lights set up throughout the room to make the participants look great. We felt like we were in a Hollywood movie.

The teams competed fiercely for bike pieces. Then, they realized they had to work together to finish each bike. The team realized that the activity, though competitive, wasn’t a competition at all!

We Donated the Bikes to Some Very Special Kids in the Area.

We chose to donate the bicycles to the Center for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH). Quinn Kelly, the manager at CAMH, watched as six bikes were safety-checked and readied for her kids. After the team added those finishing touches, we presented her with the bikes. Of course, the entire group was shocked when the kids finally came rushing through the doors.

We all got a little teary-eyed.

Afterwards Ms.Fortune said, “Thank you Laura, It was wonderful. We look forward to next year!”

Laura Lewis-Barr facilitated this Build-A-Bike ® on September 21, 2016 in Salon A at the Fairmont Royal York Hotel, 100 Front St W, Toronto, ON M5J 1E3, Canada.
