Team Building and Corporate Events in Switzerland & Abroad
I’ve trained and developed teams in a wide variety of settings, from corporate to military to sports. I specialize in delivering team experiences that are high-energy, memorable, and customized for the client’s needs. Overarching goals are to improve team cohesion, performance under pressure, and communications. Activities may include obstacle courses, scavenger hunts, chaos drills, group physical training, adventure race simulations, training in a team with logs, and tasks designed to expand limits and take people out of their comfort zones in a safe and controlled manner.
My team events are prepared and delivered with a keen view of the client’s needs. I work with each client to ensure that the level of physicality is appropriate to the group and setting. Some events are extremely light physically (set for indoors and in business clothes). Other events are quite challenging physically. Most commonly, I incorporate a mix with the potential for the team to share activities across the group. This ensures that the challenge is appropriate for each attendee type.
An average team event is 3 hours in duration and takes place outside. Some events are as short as 1 hour and other events are as long as a full day. Activities are designed to expose and train the client’s requested area(s) of development. This typically includes a mix of challenges spanning physical, creative, mental, trust, humor, camaraderie, senses, awareness, and more. I have also successfully delivered events that combine a bespoke inspirational talk with a team event.
Below you will find a menu of events I’ve delivered in the past for companies and sports teams. I’m happy to combine activities or custom-design an event to meet your needs and location. And if your team is remotely located and not able to travel to one location due to COVID-19 restrictions, I’m happy to talk with you about innovative virtual team training experiences I’ve delivered during the pandemic.
