The Case for Team Building
by Kimberly Wells, Owner, Painting With a Twist

At the Longview Chamber of Commerce, we encourage discussions on business issues.  In our weekly e-newsletter, the lead article typically addresses something helpful for the business community.  In October, one referenced article was about not wasting your time on team building, claiming that it failed to drive cohesiveness and performance, one author's opinion.  One of our members spoke up about the power of team building in driving performance and her personal observance of that power at her business every day. 

Kimberly Wells: The Case for Team Building
Painting with a Twist is a unique idea for team building exercises. Our fun, step-by-step painting classes offer a way for teams to come together outside of the office and create more than just art. We create lasting memories and connections.

East Texas Coalition - Austin!  

The Longview Chamber believes in representing the interest of business with government. One of the most effective ways to represent the East Texas region is by bringing the region's civic and business leaders to the State Capitol discussing issues impacting Gregg County and the business community.  Meet directly with elected officials and state agency leaders.  Issues at the State Capitol significantly influence the economy and quality of life of residents and employers in the Gregg County region.
