Aaron runs the team building brand ‘Laughtercise’. After two years of studying the team building market and delivering team building sessions, he believes that some approaches to team building are stuck in the 90s.
At Laughtercise, they believe most team building and icebreaker resources on Google are poor, and are working hard to provide better. Their approach is to shake things up. They want to support people to take the forced out of forced fun and get rid of the cringe factor when it comes to team building activities. At Laughtercise, they deliver wild and fun team building sessions to organisations all over the UK. All the exhilaration of drinking games, but without the alcohol! They have also delivered over £10,000 worth of sessions, for free, to NHS Trusts and Charities.
In this episode, Aaron wants to shake up your thinking when it comes to team building and team away days and provide you with creative insights. Most importantly, his goal is to convince you to ditch the word ‘icebreaker’ and never ever use it again!
So, shall we break the ice…?

A revocable trust can have many advantages versus just having a simple will. While many are predisposed to want a simple will, the truth is that a simple will result in all assets passing through the probate court. The probate court can be a slow, cumbersome, and costly process. On the other hand, having a revocable trust can create a more straightforward, faster, and less costly process in the long run. To find out more on this topic, you can read our article on Family Law Headquarters titled: What's the Advantage of a Revocable Trust?

Dear Dana: That Time I Went Crazy and Wrote All 580 of My Facebook Friends a Handwritten Letter
When Amy Daughters reconnected with her old pal Dana on Facebook, she had no idea how it would change her life. Though the two women hadn’t had any contact in 30 years, it didn’t take them long to catch up—and when Amy learned that Dana’s son Parker was doing a second stint at St. Jude battling cancer, she was suddenly inspired to begin writing the pair weekly letters.
When Parker died, Amy—not knowing what else to do—continued to write Dana. Eventually, Dana wrote back, and the two became pen pals, sharing things through the mail that they had never shared before. The richness of the experience left Amy wondering something: If my life could be so changed by someone I considered “just a Facebook friend”, what would happen if I wrote all my Facebook friends a letter?
A whopping 580 handwritten letters later Amy’s life, and most of all her heart, would never ever be the same again.
