Looking for a team-building event that is built around extract making?
Email us at email@example.com about virtual events that we can host, or we can even fly out to you. And when we visit, we bring the extract kits, our best-selling book and the alcohol for the extracts.
Our 1, 2 or 4-hour presentations focus on the history of vanilla as a metaphor to understanding your own company's products or services and the amazing story behind them. As your teams understand your product, service or business history, you can better tell your own stories in a way that inspires creativity, unity and singular focus on your company's vision and values.
Consider the history of vanilla, as told in our book: Originating in Mexico, used by the Aztecs and brought to Spain by Cortez in 1519. Then, grown unsuccessfully in the Eastern world for 300 years in the absence of natural pollinators until 1841 when an enslaved 12-year-old boy named Edmund Albius on the island of Reunion invented a hand-pollination technique that is still used today.
We have visited vanilla farms and used Edmund’s techniques in pollinating vanilla orchids to produce vanilla beans. We have met and worked with farmers that make a living cultivating vanilla. We have built an online community of hundreds of thousands of people that use vanilla beans to make extracts that have enriched their culinary creations and their lives.
Yes, a vanilla bean is just a bean. But like any person, or any great product or business, there is always a story that, when told correctly, is beautiful and inspires us to new levels of greatness. And so it is with extract making. The individuality of each extract that we make awakens in us a sweet sense of self that reflects the genuine, pure, and rich authenticity of who we are. Indeed, vanilla is anything but vanilla. And your business, your products, your stories and your values are anything but ordinary.
Make vanilla extract part of your corporate team building strategy and watch as you and your teams smile, laugh and enjoy the moment that you all make something absolutely beautiful together.
