Had a great team event with Trebound doing a murder mystery with team members Zooming in from 6+ countries and cities around the world. Very well thought out, great visuals that allowed our team to dig into various aspects of the case and suspects, and good structure to the session for breakouts, etc. Would definitely recommend.

When it comes to Virtual Team Engagement, I think Trebound has done a fabulous job to make our event a grand success. The inhibitions we had were quickly resolved and the sessions we had before actually going live, took care of all the queries and gave us the confidence that we can make our "PMI Bangalore Chapter Voluntary Meet 2020" event a new experience in this new normal.
