Team Building Comments
The Guelph Chamber of Commerce staff and Board of Directors
visited Strom's Farm in August to participate in a problem
solving and team building exercise. The opportunity
to get out of the meeting room into the fresh air and
have some fun together launched us into a tremendous
autumn season. For the first time the Guelph Chamber
of Commerce staff and our volunteer Board of Directors
interacted one on one to get to know each other and
to have many laughs as we built a corporation together.
Lessons learned around looking for and leveraging strengths
of team members, and succeeding together with all departments
winning instead of competing against each other were
lasting take aways. And the supper was outstanding!
Strom's really knows how to provide a unique and memorable
- L. Longfield, Guelph Chamber of Commerce
Our experience at your farm was nothing but amazing.
The feedback from the entire team was postive, they
only had good things to say. Everyone enjoyed their
time there. The team building excercises were fun and
we learnt a lot about each other and working as a team
to get the job done efficiently and effectively. You
and your staff were helpful and accomodating to our
needs. We appreciate that very much and look forward
to having more activities at your farm.

We held our staff appreciation event at Strom’s
in October 2012 for 80 people. Strom’s supplied
everything we needed; the location, the equipment, the
entertainment and the home-cooked meal – everything
was amazing and there wasn’t one complaint. The
team building activities were humorous, interactive
& engaging and all of the staff at Strom’s
were cheerful & accommodating . The afternoon we
spent at Strom’s was a great opportunity for our
staff to get to know one another better and also to
be reminded how important they are to our organization.
Thank you Strom’s!

"Our staff really work well together, yet it's
amazing that we didn't instinctively pull together until
the end of the exercise. It was a real eye opener to
realize the areas where we can improve our working relationship,
no matter how good it was already. Communication really

"My team and I really enjoyed our time spent at Strom's.
The food was wonderful and Marti was great. It was just
what I was looking for in a teambuilding event, and
it was just the right mix of fun and learning. I really
don't think that I can think of any areas for improvement. The word is spreading about our positive experience
so I hope that you will be contacted next year with
other groups from here. Thank you both very much for
a great day."

Supervisor, The Co-operators
"Myself personally, I thought it was very fun,
it turned out to be a great day, which is awesome! I
really like the fact that people that aren't "Leaders"
at work, were able to step up and become leaders at
this event. I enjoyed the interaction with Martti and
thought he was very nice and learned some interesting
things from him. I liked the facts that Amy provided
us about the history of the farm and corn as well. The
staff all enjoyed themselves immensely and were all
obviously very energetic and excited once we got going,
especially with the "Maze"
and the pumpkin chuckin."
- Bruno Muzzi, Office Manager, Mumby Insurance
"Thank you again for a great experience, we will
definitely be back in future...Also the fee you charged
us was very reasonable - I would have paid double that
without blinking an eye. The events were great and the
food was definitely a hit!"
- Anthea Mumby, President, Mumby Insurance Brokers
"I want to thank you very much for a fabulous day
at the farm. All our team members had a wonderful day,
the team building events were fun but very insightful.
Martti is a very talented facilitator, he made everyone
feel very comfortable and they all walked away with
at least one- what we call "a golden nugget"
or should I say "golden kernel". The staff,
events and food were fantastic, we will definitely be
back for future events. Thanks again for a great afternoon."
