Cathy Barrick, CEO of the Alzheimer Society of Toronto – “Twenty One Toys made team building both fun and insightful. The combination of different exercises and the need to focus on specific ways of communicating was invaluable to our team. I would recommend the workshop to all!”
FORBES magazine Kwadwo "Kay" Boamah, FedEx Canada – “The Empathy Toy helped [top-performing sales executives at FedEx Canada] to understand how collaboration requires patience, opportunities for error, and time to recalibrate messages and then see things out to final execution.”
