Escape Entertainment NYC launched a new team training service, Power Team BuildingTM, that builds upon the worldwide phenomenon of escape the room games in order to take team building activities to new heights by making them more purposeful than other traditional team building events. Escape Entertainment was founded by former executives of Fortune 500 companies as well as prominent NYC and Silicon Valley CEO entrepreneurs and they enlisted a highly accomplished team of team building experts, professional game designers and acclaimed Broadway and Hollywood set designers and fabricators to create team game experiences that are both highly enjoyable and have great training efficacy for lasting benefit. —
The founders of Escape Entertainment saw escape the room games as having powerful potential as a vehicle for team training and leadership development if games are designed with these purposes in mind. Designed well, the team challenge that is part of the escape the room activity can reveal opportunities for individual and team improvement in the workplace whereby adoption of such improvements can lead to lasting team performance enhancement. “The escape the room games that have become so popular worldwide were designed purely as an entertainment activity” according to Brad Albright, Founder of Escape Entertainment. “Based on our experiences in training programs in the US Army, J.P. Morgan, McKinsey and other prominent organizations we saw the opportunity to adapt the escape the room concept to have greater purpose and value by creating a fun training experience that enhances team bonds while at the same time highlighting team best practices for lasting workplace effect. We are delighted by the feedback we get from our clients regarding the productivity enhancement they achieve because of our Power Team Building Offering.”
