When I came to Columbia 15 months ago, one of my Supervisors at the time handed me a package that contained all of the particulars around what Corporate Challenge was all about and it struck me as perfectly timed, we really needed a team activity to get us doing something together.

As it turns out, it was exactly what we needed! It was a great day of team building and spending quality time together, away from the office. It was a great cause we were participating in and worth every minute, small injury and laugh.

The event was well organized and the activities were challenging but something everyone could participate in. Well done Michael and team…we will be back next year!

The London Corporate Challenge was a phenomenal experience and one that London Life will certainly participate in again. Through the LCC, my teammates and I were able to raise money and awareness for such an incredibly worthy cause while subsequently engaging in a fun-filled day of team-building initiatives, physical activity, and a boatload of laughter. The LCC provided our team the ability to “shimmy, shake and strategize” collectively through a meticulously organized day of exciting events ranging from a foam pit scavenger hunt, to an inflatable boot-camp obstacle, to brain-busting trivia. The day’s events had something for everyone and inspired a light-hearted competitive nature in each and every one of us. Our whole team was still ranting and raving about the LCC for many days following the event. We will definitely be back! Thanks for all your hard-work and dedication to this event, Mike and team. Your efforts have not gone unnoticed. Job well done!

“As a first time group captain with the Corporate Challenge, I didn’t know what to expect, but hoped for a fun day…and, oh was it ever fun! The Corporate Challenge team created an organized, smooth, exciting day for us, and it was fantastic to network and connect in our group and with others during the day. A Women at Play team will be back next year for sure…and we’d love to see more competition! The unique activities and challenges had us all feeling like kids again — a much needed break from regular day to day. Thank you for creating a great day!”
