The Leader’s Institute® recently held a Build-A-Bike® event for Oaktree Capital on a Saturday morning in Los Angeles, CA. Participants came out to Pasadena to do this bike team building event and build 20 bikes for the youth at the Boys and Girls Clubs. This was a family event where participants were encouraged to bring their kids. While the kids were encouraged to do face painting and other activities outside, the adults worked on building the bikes. The focus of this event was more on having fun and giving back to the community, so the team building aspects were not as emphasized. Participants had fun interacting with individuals from other teams, and solving their challenges in order to receive bike parts. This was a casual event where people were encouraged to dress comfortably and enjoy the food truck Oaktree Captial provided for after the event. Everyone stayed around after and had fun mingling with people they might not see on a regular basis during the work week. Chris McNeany, based in Los Angeles, was able to meet some great folks at this event.
“Thank you all for your help! Our bike team building event was a HUGE success and we couldn’t have done it without you! It was great working with you and we look forward to more events in the future.”
-Erin Hillis, Oaktree Capital
The location of this event was: 3230 East Del Mar Blvd. Pasadena, CA 91107
