We provide facilitated team building events, which means a trained host will run engaging activities for you and your team. For larger groups, we also provide a co-host to support on any technical issues.
Most of our events are 90 minutes, and for the online ones our default platform is Zoom. For some event types we can use Google Meet, Microsoft Teams, and Webex.
The actual experience depends on your event type, and typically involves two or three of our proprietary games and activities.
