Hands-on Education&Training

Team Building Activities and Corporate Exercises - Auckland and Northland

If you are looking for a new angle on staff development and team building; something practical and fun and accessible to Auckland and Northland-based companies, you are in the right place.

Team building at its very best

One of the common requests from HR and business owners is to develop problem solving abilities and creativity amongst its teams. ‘Build projects’ are perfect for both of these and of course you get all the other benefits of communication, bonding and trust in the process.


Build projects have the means to change lives.

They increase confidence, encourage creativity, exercise practical problem solving and create team cohesion.

Our hands-on corporate and team building exercises can also include a community link, by choosing to support a local school or kindergarten with what you build.

Contact me today to discuss what will work with your team and make a booking.


I will lead your team in a unique experience that will safely exercise their ability to set goals and problem solve whilst challenging their practical skills.
