Improv Virtual Team Bonding

Once Upon a Team

What’s it like to crawl inside someone else’s imagination and open up a new space of narration not possible during normal brainstorming sessions?

Help your team think outside the box and build an intricate story together that you’ll remember for years to come. What emerges may be completely unexpected but always hilarious for participants! The sillier the better – it’s the perfect experience that sparks creativity, laughter and joy, and brings out humour that transcends introverted personalities unfamiliar with performing for others.

Improv equals a workout for your imagination. Multiply this with all of your team members, and what do you get?

Release your inner-whatever you want! Find easy ways to access free flow of thought, trust and hone your story-telling intuition, and do it together as a team.

Teams will leave with a sense of accomplishment and also have fun doing it! You’ll get 90 minutes of laughter, teamwork, ideas and inspiration with a professional comedian. Immersive and experiential, this team experience is a great opportunity to think on your feet, have some laughs along the way and build a fun and mysterious story together as a team.

Our product team at Atlassian ran the “Once Upon a Team” experience with YumTum, which is an Intergalactic Space themed experience. The Improv-style experience was run by professional actors, was really fun, engaging and entertaining. We loved the experience, and appreciated that it catered to our team that is distributed across many locations and time zones, and it was cool to see the personal touch in the invite and during the event! Definitely recommend to other teams looking for an entertaining social.

The entire team was hysterical and absolutely loved the “Once Upon a Team” experience hosted by YumTum. Aside from having a good laugh, there’s so much you learn about each other. YumTum took care of the entire experience end-to-end, which was awesome. The comedian and event co-ordinators were absolutely amazing. This special team event left us with some awesome team memories and left us feeling energized and refreshed. Highly recommend it!

  • You will receive an invite in the form of a fun poster to get the team excited
  • All team-members get a calendar invite
