The San Francisco-based company tinyB Chocolate produces “brigadeiros,” a heavenly Brazilian cousin to the chocolate truffle that has a smooth, creamy texture but no hard shell. tinyB founder Renata Stoica is a São Paolo native who’s using her old family recipes to bring the tradition to America. She infuses the brigadeiros with flavors that remind her of home, like passion fruit, pineapple, cayenne pepper and Brazilian coffee. Beautifully packaged in robin’s egg blue boxes, the chocolates make a perfect party favor and a lovely holiday gift. The boxes can be branded with a company logo or motto. And tinyB runs teambuilding chocolate-making events where participants roll their own brigadeiros, pick their toppings, and do lots of tasting along the way. Lasting between one to two hours and able to accommodate from 5 to 50 amateur chocolate-makers, the events can take place at tinyB’s locations or in an office or other site. All that’s required is a 4-foot-by6-foot table and enough room for guests.  

On June 21, the MPI Southern California Chapter marked its 40th anniversary as members gathered for their annual installation gala at the Four Seasons Hotel Los Angeles at Beverly Hills. After a welcome reception in the Wetherly Garden, where cocktails were hosted by Mulholland Distilling and sparkling wine by South Coast Winery, guests moved into the ballroom for the awards program and dinner and the swearing in of the 2018-19 Board of Directors. The evening concluded with a lavish dessert reception in the Orchid Room.

 

Imagine taking time away from the hustle and bustle of the office and retreating to the woods for an exhilarating teambuilding adventure with your management team. Effective team building activities can be extremely beneficial, not only for improving morale among all employees, but also for boosting the bottom line.

 

These tours have all the right ingredients for a fulfilling—and filling—post-meeting activity.
