Testimonies

“I have worked with Stephanie and her team on numerous occasions and each time it has been an outstanding success. Collaborative Art is unlike other team building – it takes people to a very different space in expressing opportunities and challenges and how they can be overcome and helps visualize the journey to a stronger and more collaborative future. It is also fantastic fun and when you have cheers ring out when people finish their painting, their is a sense of pure satisfaction on having created something quite wonderful together. As Stephanie has a corporate background, the integration of this team building event within the context of a team meeting works very well and can be designed very effectively to match the theme of the meetings

“Stephanie Fonteyn and Collaborative Art were invaluable in making the first ever TEDxZurichWomen event a reality. Stephanie was wonderful to work with. She had such dedication to the cause and her hardworking nature, flexibility and positive attitude were present throughout. She organised a live collaborative art work for the event, which was a huge success. It really added to the creativity of the day and imparted a sense of being a part of the whole initiative amongst attendees. Stephanie’s talk at the event was also fantastic, with many positive comments from attendees who were touched by her story. Her passion for art and making a difference to people’s lives really shines through. Thank you Stephanie!”

Rakhi, TEDxZurichWomen 

 “The team started out a bit skeptical about the exercise and nervous about their artistic abilities. Steph and Uli managed to guide us through a process that unlocked those doors and allowed every member of the team to engage fully in creating our team masterpiece, building our confidence that we could do it. We are all proud of the result and look forward to having it displayed in our office where we will see it often. This was one of the best team exercises we have done to date – encouraging good teamwork and building a common vision of our future’.

Lynda, General Director, Mava Foundation, Vaud, Switzerland

“Our partnership with Collaborative Art was a great success. We wanted a different than usual team event, getting folks from all regions to partner together in defining the vision on one of our key global strategic project yet in an usual way. We had great fun, helped fostering new connexions between the group and result helps the team keeping the spirit of the full summit in mind. I would definitely recommend to other teams.”

Helene, Associate Marketing Director, Global Fabric Care

“I am still very happy and proud every single day when I look at the very nice masterpiece that we were able to put create as a team, in  a very relaxed, fun and collaborative atmosphere. And all that while none of us really are good artists (to put it mildly…)”

Koen, Business Director, Global Chemical Company

“At our global team meeting, 60 people from different cultures hugely enjoyed the Collaborative Art experience and benefitted from the great facilitation and creativity offered by Steph Fonteyn.  The masterpiece now has pride of place in our Global Headquarters and acts as a very visually pleasing reminder of our team’s core values.”

Martha, Global Manufacturing Company

“We had an excellent experience with Collaborative Art, from preparation to conclusion. We had fun despite our (lack of) artistic skills and time, and produced a beautiful painting visualising how we imagine the future of our company. The result exceeded our expectations, and the painting now hangs in our office showing the enjoyment, goals, and vision we work to build”

Rodney, Swiss Start-up company
