Team Building-Workshop-DC-Small-Business-Loyalty-Branding-Girl-Bosses-DC-Motivational-Speaker-Business-Growth

For the last five years, we have planned and led unique team building workshops for consulting groups all over the DC and Baltimore Metro area. These groups range in size from 5-75 and are amazing opportunities for teams to become closer-knit, build trust and confidence in one another and forge the loyalty needed to take companies to the next level. We love them and so do our clients!

A typical event includes:

  • A kick-off with beverages, small bites and getting-to-know-you activities for the group
  • A fun, hands-on floral design workshop (and each participant gets to take their own arrangement home!)
  • A wide variety of team building presentations and exercises by our own CEO, Author & Speaker Katie Martin. Our most popular themes tend to focus on working together as a team, increasing sales through various revenue streams, leveraging technology and time management skills

All of these events are catered (special dietary needs can be accommodated) and we always recommend a family-style service to create an intimate environment for attendees.

We take a unique approach to building better teams and creating that healthier, synergistic working environment that makes companies stronger. Book your next team building event with us!

With lots of bridal showers and bridesmaid luncheons planning happening at our office this week, we decided to share our fave local restaurants for hosting these timeless events that will create memories for a lifetime!

Here are our top 5 Favorite locations:

Kapnos Taverna– This air filled, window-walled gem, owned by Top Chef Mike Isabella is located in Arlington, VA (with another location at Regan National Airport and an upcoming location in College Park, Maryland).  The mezzanine location is perfect for this type of event.  Starting with Greek spreads followed by fried cheese saganaki and spit-roasted lamb – you can’t go wrong!

Restaurant Eve – Chef Armstrong’s beautiful Alexandria, Virginia location immediately transports you to France.  The interior is delightful and the food is ethereal.  They have perfect nooks for bridal showers and bridesmaid luncheons!

Ritz Carlton – The DC and Tysons location are our favorite for swanky gatherings with your wedding party!  They can create anything from the ultimate high tea to a feast customized for a queen.  With pretty spaces located all over these hotels, you can treat all of your guests in luxury and service!

The Hay Adams Hotel – There truly is no other like The Hay Adams.  Overlooking the White House, you simply can’t find a location that screams “DC Wedding” more.  The rooftop has been enclosed and can be divided into two sections for smaller events. You’ll also find a lovely dining area and private dining rooms on the 1st floor for high tea and other customized menus.  Make it into a weekend – you seriously want to be in one of their suites!

Your home – Nothing is easier than hosting a bridal luncheon or shower in your own home!  Leave the cooking to one of our favorite caterers who can come in and plate up whatever your heart desires and we’ll sprinkle flowers all over to make everything beautiful!  I guarantee you will spend the same amount as you would at a restaurant or less!
