“On behalf of the Management team, I would like to officially Thank You for leading our teams today through “End Hunger Games”! The feedback from our community was overwhelmingly positive and a great way to end our day. The donation to the Food Bank resonated with us all and was the best part of the exercise.”

“I am so happy that we worked with you for Capco’s event in Puerto Rico. I really can’t say enough good things about Kerry and his team. They were all incredibly helpful, fun, professional, and just plain great at their jobs. Such amazing attitudes, professionalism, and willingness to adapt. The feedback from participants has been overwhelming, everyone had such a great time.”

“I liked that different people can come together quickly when genuine effort is applied. We learned how to work together effectively. Teams can work well together when everyone is given space and opportunity to do what they do best. Teamwork can be achieved in a hectic setting.”

“Kerry, it was a pleasure meeting you. How you incorporated our characteristics and traits were perfect. I loved the elements to the boat building as well from negotiating, consulting, showcasing the product-all of it-YOU were the perfect fit for this dynamic team. What was created yesterday was epic and it will last with them for a lifetime. Thank you and thank you photos. I am sure we will be in touch.”

“The event was a huge success! Tom was amazing to work with! It created the common thread we wanted to pull through the entire meeting and beyond. Many mentioned how in the beginning they were skeptical and it seemed like an impossible task yet somehow over a short two hour period we were able to build a functional mechanism within our group AND connect the motions with two partner groups to achieve an extraordinary outcome.”

“Kerry, the event was a HUGE success. People raved about how fun it was. This morning over breakfast, one participant told me they had participated in a lot of team-building activities, and this was by far the best 😊

Thank you so much - we will definitely reach out in the future!”

“We had a great experience with Fulltilt and still have people from the field who enjoyed it so much. They've reached out to get contact information for their own partner's event to help with recommendations. The event itself was easy because the team set everything up, it created an incredible experience for those involved. I've never hosted an event where EVERYONE participated in a way like they did with the raceway.

As someone who has planned multiple in-person events / activities, I truly feel this was an actual unique activity that none of our field members had done before. They were excited, engaged, and had fun with it. If we have another in-person event, we will absolutely leverage Fulltilt (maybe even the same activity) again.

Can't recommend enough! If there are any other questions I might be able to provide, happy to!”

“It really was quite spectacular! It went better than I could have expected. Everyone was engaged and enthusiastic and Kerri did a great job running it all! Our Angela was amazing too and kept everything running smoothly!

I will definitely share the feedback survey and pics with our team. Thank you for your help setting this all up and please let Kerri know we thought he did an amazing job!

I think the good word will spread and you will be getting some requests for info on your events.”

Spero Therapeutics

“The event was absolutely incredible. We received an outpour of feedback from the field sharing their gratitude for the event and many shared that this was the best event they've ever done. It allowed for incredible creativity, and the team really came together.”


Vice President, Head of Clinical Operations

“You and your team are rockstars! Everyone had an amazing time, lots of laughs and you nailed the theme of our building event. We simply couldn't have asked for anything more. We appreciate your enthusiasm and energy, it was contagious!

We really appreciate you taking pictures and videos for us!!”

Tokio Marine

“The event was really good. Tom is a self proclaimed Airbus fan, so that helped get us on side immediately!

The whole event was managed very well, the team learned a little more about each other as well as about themselves. Easy to follow activities creating a sense of understanding that while the activities were a game for us, to others it is their reality day in and day out.

Tom and August did a lovely job and we go to meet the non-profit from where the chairs will be distributed.”

"The event was a success! Initially, my group was nervous about what this "culture activity" would entail, but the activity exceeded our expectations. I'm grateful for your help and look forward to future opportunities.

Again, thank you so much; it was an absolute pleasure working with you all!"

"We built cardboard boats and sailed them in the hotel pool during our first offsite as a team since PepsiCo Labs doubled its size. Our time in Miami was revealing and energizing, reinforcing our tight-knit culture as we bring innovative tech solutions to solve PepsiCo's challenges.." 😊

#team #culture #fun


"The Team Building went great and Kerry did a terrific job of integrating salient points with our morning Keynote. We did have some participants that wished we had spent more time on the Domino Effect and a little less on the paper challenge, but I think a lot of take aways came from both activities and the overall group wanted to keep trying. We are gathering feedback with a survey and will share more with you next week.

Thank you!"

What is the Art of Flight Challenge?

The Art of Flight Challenge is an exhilarating team-building activity where participants engineer and construct airworthy aircraft using only cardboard, tape, and basic materials. It's a creative and collaborative endeavor that challenges teams to design and build flying machines capable of taking flight. At FullTilt Team Development, we facilitate this challenge to not only provide a fun and memorable experience but also to foster teamwork, problem-solving skills, and leadership qualities among participants.

How does the Art of Flight work?

A: The Art of Flight works by engaging teams in a hands-on construction project where they must design and build cardboard airplanes. Teams are provided with basic materials and guidelines, and they must work together to create aircraft that can successfully fly. Once constructed, teams put their airplanes to the test by launching them into the air and observing their flight capabilities. This challenge encourages creativity, communication, and collaboration while offering a unique and memorable team-building experience. At FullTilt Team Development, we facilitate this challenge to ensure teams not only have a blast but also develop essential skills that translate to the workplace.

How does the Art of Flight help in Team Building?

The Art of Flight is an effective team-building activity because it requires participants to collaborate, communicate, and problem-solve in a dynamic and engaging environment. As teams work together to design and construct their cardboard airplanes, they must overcome challenges, make decisions under pressure, and leverage each other's strengths. This activity promotes teamwork, leadership, and creativity while fostering a sense of camaraderie and accomplishment among team members. At FullTilt Team Development, we specialize in facilitating team-building events like the Art of Flight, where participants not only strengthen their bonds but also acquire skills that enhance their performance in the workplace.

What are examples of the Art of Flight Challenge?

Examples of the Art of Flight Challenge can range from recreational outings to competitive team-building events. In a recreational setting, teams might build simple airplanes for flying competitions or distance challenges. In a corporate team-building context, companies might organize Art of Flight challenges as part of offsite retreats or training programs. These challenges can vary in complexity and scale, with some focusing on pure creativity and others incorporating elements of strategy and competition. At FullTilt Team Development, we tailor the Art of Flight Challenge to suit the goals and preferences of our clients, ensuring a customized and impactful team-building experience.
