As for the main benefits/take-aways, it’s hard to narrow it down to a few. Of course there were huge ‘Aha’s” for the group with regard to thinking outside the box and creativity. But there was also a vastly increased level of team cohesiveness. We really had an opportunity to know each other better and to have some fun together in a way that increases our commitment to work together effectively. But the biggest payoff of all was the combined feeling of having accomplished something with such an impact to people around the world. Knowing that we actually made a significant positive difference in the lives of people who so badly need it, was astonishing! Jean E.

A sincere “Thank You” for providing us with such an emotional and enlightening experience last Thursday afternoon. Absolutely one of the best “training” events I have had in my career. I have already related the experience and lesson learned to numerous people, both internal and external to Qualcomm. I am sure I will be talking about this most memorable episode for quite some time. What an impact – Thank you!
Ty Stewart, Qualcomm
This unique event brought us closer together on many levels, especially as partners in delivering value to our clients.
-Just want you to know that there hasn’t been ANY negative feedback (out of 200 participants) which is rare with this group, so consider it a huge success on our end, as well as yours.
We got lot’s of very positive feedback about your session. Nice work!! You guys did a great job at the event.
There is a moment of stunned silence, then the room roars! It is pandemonium as those with team numbers stand on chairs holding their signs overhead.

This thinking (Odyssey PEN) has propelled our team to the number one position in our franchise for the past three years. I can’t state my opinion of your company enough-your professionalism, your creativity and your passion for what you do comes through loud and clear.

Odyssey is the ideal partner to organize and execute this kind of an ambitious undertaking that brings civic organizations and Claremont Graduate University together to benefit the children of Claremont.

Superhero Camp was a good start for leadership camp, and I think that many of his points were like reminders of what we plan to achieve and overcome this year as superheros! It gave inspiration to me.
Very valuable, I thought it was fun! Captain Eutopia was full of enthusiasm.
The Superhero program gave us a lift! A fun, relevant and unique series of exercises. I recommend it!
I thought it was excellent, great program!

Yesterday, I felt like we were all a part of one huge clique or group. No one was excluded, it was as if we had never had problems getting along, everyone was treated with respect and each person worked to help everyone succeed.

Thank you for putting on such a great program for our team! We had a ton of fun and I think everyone learned a lot about themselves and the team! Thanks again, I really appreciate everything you did for our team! Fight on!

I felt very trusting today, as I knew others trusted me in turn. Also, I felt that my efforts were worthwhile because people recognized my efforts whenever we completed an activity.
This is a wonderful idea. It brings people together, it’s fun, and the end result is very useful.

Abodes for Birds was one of the best team buildings we have ever done. The auction raised over $5,000 for the SoberGrad party and everyone loved it.
“The Odyssey could be better than Tony Robbins, if packaged and promoted as a personal development program.”
“This is the first course I have come away from in a long time feeling overtly positive about the learning outcomes!”

“A unique, simple and bloody effective approach to training…. What a wonderful vehicle for growth!”
