Team Building Chocolate

Corporate Events: From the Sublime to the Ridiculous

We at MyChocolate feel we have it pretty good.  As our aim is to continually devise new and delicious recipes for your delectation, we get to flavour the ganache, pour the cream and lick the spoon at the end.

It’s no bad existence.

However, of late we’ve been having fun checking out how the other half live  – you know, the half who have their own helipads and stuff.

We’ve done a little rekkie of the ‘net, and discovered the most extravagant corporate events experiences out there.

Here are the ones that most tickled our fancy:Team Building Chocolate

Not Quite Do Wah Diddy

Yeh, Cheryl Cole is no slouch on X Factor, but dontcha just miss her singing with the other lasses? Well, fret no more! For a not so modest fee, you can hire Girls Aloud to sing at your company’s bash. For the older clientele, we have Depeche Mode or for the discerning older lady, hunky opera boys Il Divo.

Celeb Speakers

Did you ever read that book, ‘The Game’? The one written for men about how to pick up just about any single lady on the market? How about hiring Neil Strauss the author as your guest speaker? (NB Not quite sure how this will boost your company’s profits). Or you could bring in a certain Mr G Ramsay, but we wouldn’t recommend asking him for dating tips.

Drive a Bentley on Ice

We’re not totally convinced of the benefits of this one. Fly to the Finnish wilderness, take this classic Brit car for a spin on a frozen lake – this seems like some kind of advanced driving proficiency course. But the bit about the huskies and the traditional Lapp dinner sounds good.

Your Very Own Submarine

Yes, for an undisclosed amount,  you can drive your very own two-seat submersible.  Designed to “fly” underwater, The Super Aviator allows you to experience the wonders of the ocean without getting wet. Just don’t say, “Red October”.

Rent a Private Island

You’d have to have done something pretty damn impressive to get HR to agree to this corporate event. Bahamas? Seychelles? Choices, choices. As long as it comes with it’s own fully staffed bar and a white sandy beach, we’re not too picky.
