National Puzzle Day


We all love puzzles right? Well, at least some people enjoy puzzles!

With the myriad of puzzles out there, it would be challenging not to like at least one of them, seeing how they provide use at home, corporate events, parties, leadership activities, and more! There are so many types we would have to start by naming some genres. In the lane of puzzles there are, mechanical, logic, math, cryptic, word, trivia, mathematical, riddles and lastly pattern puzzles.

Now if we want to be a little more specific, there is Sudoku, crossword, word search, escape rooms, anagrams, paint by numbers and cryptograms, just to name a few! There is one puzzle I haven’t mentioned yet, and I feel as if it is often the first thing we think of when we hear the word “puzzle.” The jigsaw puzzle! Now, I love a good jigsaw puzzle, but not when you’re putting together an actual 2000 piece puzzle and your dog chews 2-3 pieces leaving you with the bitter, empty, dissatisfaction of being unable to finish your beautiful picture. Or the other possibility which in my opinion would be worse, if your dog chewed one piece, so after completing your puzzle, there was only one piece missing! That’s madness. Or maybe I’m mad, probably both.

In the spirit of puzzles, we would be remiss if we didn’t share this adventure that is unique and fun.

The Mystery of Da Vinci Smarthunt This program is the reinvention of an old-fashioned code-based scavenger hunt. Now, the program is complete with a cool Cryptex and a cache of Apple iPads – – creating a paperless, interactive event that would make Da Vinci proud! This program encourages teamwork communication, and works as an indoor team building activity or an outdoor team building activity! Whatever works best for you!

      What is a Keynote Speaker?

      Keynote Speaker is an often-misunderstood term associated with simply a motivational speaker, breakout speaker, industry expert, etc. Most professional speakers are not actual trained Keynote Speakers, who are specialists, therefore in much lower supply, and in higher demand.

      Keynote Speakers are experienced, professional communicators who engage an audience, capturing the essence of a client’s meeting. They are able to highlight it to their audience while simultaneously delivering their own key concepts and proprietary content in an entertaining and impactful way. Most companies understand that this specialization is very much worth the time (around an hour) and the investment.

      In order to capture the perfect essence, a Keynote Speaker spends the necessary time researching a client’s industry, their issues, and their audience to craft a customized presentation into a unique and distinctive moment specifically for the client’s event.

      As a top Keynote Speaker, Tom Leu strategically uses compelling storytelling, humor, powerful visuals, audio and video clips, and audience participation elements to weave an impactful message into your event in a fun and memorable way. Tom can also pair his Keynote with Best Corporate Events programming, laying a foundation and setting a tone that best prepares participants for maximum engagement in the forthcoming team events that day.
