It's not enough just to have a meeting anymore.

Remind your team why they chose the company they work for by putting 'fun' back into the word 'function'. 

"So. . .have you ever gone to that company networking event and just felt like something was missing? Or perhaps you have planned a team building exercise that just flopped - completely missing the ultimate goal?  I have been to many of those events and have vowed to never torture my clients and their guests." - Lamar Engel

"We used The Wine Militia for a sales incentive trip this year in Napa Valley - what an amazing job they did in presenting exciting and new activities for our guests to select from while they were in Napa.  Every detail was impeccable from the transportation to and from each activity down to the hand-picked menus by their sommeliers. In addition to the guests activities’ that were arranged, The Wine Militia hosted our team-building activity, Wine Boot Camp (Wine Blending, Blind Tasting, etc).  Each guest had a great time, learned about the art of wine blending from their super friendly team!"
