“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 team building activity in the Domino Effect?

The team building activity in the Domino Effect revolves around creating a magnificent Rube Goldberg Machine. This intricate and collaborative task challenges teams to design and construct a chain reaction device that accomplishes a simple task in a spectacular manner. It's not just about building the machine; it's about fostering teamwork, communication, and problem-solving skills among team members. At FullTilt Team Development, we facilitate this activity to ensure teams not only have a blast but also take away valuable lessons in collaboration and creativity.

What is the Domino team building activity?

The Domino team building activity is an engaging and innovative exercise inspired by the concept of a Rube Goldberg Machine. Teams work together to design and assemble a series of interconnected components to create a domino effect, culminating in the completion of a predetermined task. This activity promotes teamwork, communication, and creativity while offering a fun and memorable experience for all participants. At FullTilt Team Development, we specialize in facilitating such team building exercises, ensuring that your team not only enjoys the activity but also gains insights that can be applied in the workplace.

What are some examples of domino effects?

Examples of domino effects can range from the simple to the complex. In everyday life, a domino effect could be as straightforward as a falling domino knocking over the next in line, creating a chain reaction. In more complex scenarios, domino effects can be seen in systems theory, economics, and even social dynamics. For instance, in business, a small change in one department's process can lead to cascading effects throughout the organization. At FullTilt Team Development, we leverage the Domino Effect Challenge to help teams understand the interconnectedness of actions and the importance of synergy in achieving common goals.

What is the domino effect problem?

The domino effect problem refers to the concept of a chain reaction where a small initial change or event sets off a sequence of related events, often with significant consequences. While the domino effect can be advantageous in certain situations, such as driving innovation or achieving goals efficiently, it can also pose challenges if not managed properly. At FullTilt Team Development, we address the domino effect problem by guiding teams through the Domino Effect Challenge, where they learn to anticipate, coordinate, and optimize their actions to create desired outcomes effectively. By mastering the principles of collaboration and problem-solving, teams can mitigate the negative impacts of the domino effect and harness its potential for success.
