Teamwork Workshop- Davies Public Affairs and Blaze PR

As we all know, there is no "I" in team...knowing how to be a successful team player is one of the most important parts of working in a group. This week at The Narrative, Mark Sylvester, from TedX Santa Barbara, helped Davies Public Affairs and Blaze PR develop the skills to increase their cohesiveness as a team in the workplace.

As beautiful, complex humans, we all have our different opinions. When we are passionate about something and want to make a change, sometimes we need tools from others to make our case. Davies, a national public affairs firm, chimes in at those times to help their clients win those high-stakes issues that drive their passions. They are the #1 public affairs company in the world, specializing in wind energy and real estate. As a firm, they come in and influence public opinion and ensure humanity is at its best. 

Ever wonder how a match-made-in-heaven happens for an influencer and a brand? Blaze PR is the brain behind these relationships. As a master in public relations, Blaze dominates the lifestyle market by taking a multi-faceted approach for every client. The team says it becomes the proverbial dog on each campaign, where your brand is its bone, and the team will do everything it can to make sure you come out on top! Davies Public Affairs is the parent-company to Blaze, and the teams enjoyed some "family time" this week at The Narrative. 

With a hunger to learn also came a hunger for delicious food, and Wishbone Boutique Catering hit the spot. The catering company, founded by Isa Bourbon and Lena Philkill, is the holistic love child of two women who live to eat and love to feed others. With their combined talents they create locally sourced, thoughtfully curated meals that look as good as they make you feel.  With a background in therapeutic culinary arts, facilitating events and a mutual lifelong dedication to living a healthful life, Isa and Lena bring an abundance of expertise to the table. They specialize in boutique catering for small gatherings, retreats, corporate off-sites and health oriented events. The food is as beautiful as it makes you feel! In the words of Wishbone, "If you believe in the power of food as a medicine, party maker, joy bringer, tastemaker, trendsetter, community builder, belly filler, and energy creator: You are our people. Food is the platform, together we make the experiences."

Over the week, Blaze and Davies worked both together and separately with Sylvester to become experts on teamwork. They participated in several activities and emerged as champions! Congratulations to an awesome event and to two spectacular teams, thanks for joining us at The Narrative!
