Chocolate Delight works its magic on Walt Disney

Specialist chocolate firm Chocolate Delight has been working its magic on The Walt Disney Company.

The successful chocolate events business run by top chocolatier Gerry Wilton has added the world's premier entertainments company to the long list of blue chip clients that have signed up for its hugely popular chocolate themed team building activities.

Other companies that have taken part in chocolate challenges run by Gerry Wilton include Coca Cola, John Lewis, M&S Money, Microsoft, Tesco, BP, Kellogg's, B&Q and The Royal Bank of Scotland.

"This time we've been teaching the art of chocolate making to cast members and employees at The Disney University, the official training centre of The Walt Disney Company," said Gerry Wilton, who also owns and runs Bournemouth's famed Chocolate Boutique Hotel.

"It was brilliant," added Charlie Buckland of The Walt Disney Company's learning and development team.

"It's a great way for a team to get together, have fun and learn about the art of chocolate-making. You come away with delicious chocolates and a team that is re-energised and ready to work. We'd highly recommend it!"

During Gerry's Chocolate Challenge, delegates learn all about the history of chocolate and take part in a chocolate tasting session before getting down to the serious business of learning how to make chocolates under the expert guidance of a trained chocolatier.

The event is one of many different corporate team building sessions run by Chocolate Delight involving copious amounts of chocolate. Also available are chocolate portrait painting classes, chocolate treasure hunts and Belgian chocolate truffle making workshops.

Particularly popular are Chocolate Delight's Apprentice Style events, where teams get to take over 'a failing chocolate factory'. Their task is to turn it round, making and marketing chocolates under the guidance of an experienced chocolatier before launching a new product line to save the failing business.

Also in demand is the Big Chocolate Picture, where teams get to create their very own masterpiece out of chocolate.

"These events are a great way of building bonds and strengthening relationships while having fun and being creative," said Gerry Wilton.

"Delegates are given a business scenario that involves manufacturing chocolate, then developing a package and presentation so they can understand the process of creating a business."
