Visa Build-A-Bike Near San Francisco, California

Visa team building event in San Francisco CA

Visa recently held a Build-A-Bike ® team building workshop near San Francisco for some employees. There were about 80 information technology employees from four different departments involved in the event. They held the meeting at Visa’s headquarters in San Meto.

Visa is a global payments technology company that connects consumers, businesses, banks, and governments. Since Visa works in more than 200 countries and territories these groups can use electronic payments instead of cash and checks. They issued their first cashless payment card in 1958!

Visa wanted to include extra time in the workshop for the group to talk about communication styles and leadership principles, so we spent the first hour doing just that. As each of the four main personality styles emerged in the discussions, there was a lot of laughter and teasing as people recognized themselves and each other. Their engagement in each of the exercises was enthusiastic, and it was clear they were having a lot of fun.

This Type of Team Building Event Has Lots of Energy and Fun

Throughout the event, there was a lot of energy and a strong air of competition! The initial activities presented opportunities for the teams to step outside of their comfort zones. The level of enthusiasm in the room was impressive! Everyone had a great time cheering for each other and showing off their creative sides.

The main portion of the program required the participants to abandon their competitiveness and work together. Skeptical and a little reluctant to share what they each had at first, eventually everyone adopted a spirit of cooperation. Finally and together, they were able to build 12 bikes for kids.

St. Matthew’s Catholic Church brought 12 very excited kids to the event to receive the donation from Visa. All the tension and struggles of learning to work more cooperatively melted away as the participants looked at the kids’ faces. Several parents indicated that these will be early Christmas presents. It was a very moving moment!

“This event was exactly what we were looking for! All the different activities were really great, and the kids coming at the end was priceless!” –Yvette Garden, Visa

Everyone likes to have fun, and everyone likes to make a difference to children in their communities. Whether you are looking for a stand-alone workshop or a unique way to spice up your next corporate gathering, Build-A-Bike ® presents a great option to consider.
