Trial size packaging for team building

Flight restrictions as well as convenience have spawned a whole separate line of product packaging for many companies. The under-3.5-ounce package for shampoos, conditioners and other lotions now occupies its own aisle in many grocery and department stores rather than the corner bin of the toothpaste aisle.

It's not only a convenience for traveling, but also for trying new products. Don't want to invest in a 24-oz bottle of the latest cleaner or mouthwash? Throw a buck or two at the pocket-sized container. Pretty low-risk investing, right?

You can do it with team building, too.

A full-on team outing can run you hundreds if not thousands, depending on the size of your team and the vendor/product combination. It's a great value if it works, but how will you know unless you try it?

So, try it.

Run Brain Run offers Scavenger Hunt Search Party games for individuals to try out, either just for their own fun or as a scout for the future office party. Nearly identical to our Search Party games for teams, they provide a very low-cost way of investigating whether it's a good fit for your team.

The events occur each month. They cost only $25 per person - or, if you poke around the Run Brain Run "Public Playdates" web page (there's one for both Seattle and Portland), you can find the tricky-slicky signup form for a discount code to get it down to $12.
