The Benefits of a Team Building Workshop

When executed properly, team-building workshops work as a catalyst for effective corporate team-building. A workshop should help the team get to know each other better, build trust amongst each other, and allow the team to work through complex situations harmoniously while enabling the best ideas to win. When team members understand each other better, it makes their collaboration even more effective and fun.

Here's how team building workshops can benefit the teams in your organization:

    • Improve communication, foster leadership skills, enhance collaboration, and successfully navigate specific changes or transitions in the organization
    • Create a safe and engaging space for participants to have honest and respectful conversations that get to the heart of their opportunity
    • Identify a path forward, and specific strategies and tactics, that will create a lasting change that will improve the efficiency and relationships among the team moving forward

A Bay Area Speaker to inspire your group

A great way to provide value to your group or organization is by bringing in a Bay Area speaker who understands your event and organizational goals, knows the local area and the dynamics of Silicon Valley, and who can engage your audience through a memorable presentation.

I have spoken at events large and small throughout the course of my 20+ career, from 1,500 person sales conferences to small intimate gatherings of top female leaders.

My speeches can be catered to a live Bay Area event or a remote gathering, depending on the needs and goals of your unique audience.

Bay area workshops - testimonial

"There is no single phrase I can use to describe the impact that Amy had on the attendees to the workshop; she is a rock star, she is passionate, literally puts the team on her shoulders, and teaches you how to run with it!"

Latinx@Cloudera, wanted to sponsor a workshop to empower all employees to reach their full potential; We found Amy and she took the monumental task of building a custom workshop and optimizing it for a live room AND remote offices, and then she delivered it in one event! She is the biggest champion of remote employee enablement!

During the session, nobody blinked, you could feel the engagement because of the number and depth of the questions asked. Amy handled the situation perfectly, giving timely answers but never losing track of the workshop. Everybody felt they were an essential part of the process!

In a data-driven company like Cloudera, everything has a purpose and has to be measured. In some cases, metrics are difficult to establish, and the company's market situation made it more challenging to track down results.

However, shortly after the workshop, we saw an increase in employee-led projects across the company, more ERGs organizing events, and more cross-team collaboration, simply because more people understood their roles in leading efforts.

I would absolutely recommend Amy and I'm already looking forward to hosting another leadership workshop at my new company."

- Angel C., Product Marketing Manager, Tech Company

"I highly recommend Amy to any organization looking to connect and engage an audience on a personal and individual level – something even more critical in today’s pandemic-Zoom era."

With nearly 430,000 Trojan alumni around the world, USC has no shortage of accomplished and knowledgeable speakers for our programs. What sets Amy Sanchez apart is her ability to connect with our constituents, her ability to adapt and mold the conversation to align with our programming goals, and her ability to deliver her content in a clear and digestible format.

From an organizational standpoint, Amy is a great partner. Not only is she highly responsive, she also places great emphasis in understanding our objectives for her presentation.

Time and again, Amy’s programs are consistently well attended and receive positive feedback."

-Tanya Moran-Adolph, Associate Director of Generational Programs at the University of Southern California Alumni Association
