Fun ‘n Games that Cool Corporate Teams Love to Play!
Bushsports staff are big kids with heart. There is no better thing to do, than enjoying being with your team. We like working with cool corporate groups that are prepared to give anything a go! A bit off the bat, unique and refreshingly different is our scene.
Please let us share a little secret that you already know but a gentle reminder helps refresh the knowledge. PLAY, yep that’s right! Play games in a group. Simple as that!
The most effective team building we witness, is teams playing together. Its true, teams that play together – stick together! No, not like in a sand pit and acting like 5 year olds. But with games for adults that are clever and require teamwork. Communication and collaboration in order to succeed.
Throw in a bit of catharsis and hey presto…. You have the beginnings of breaking down barriers, opening up lines of communication and sharing common interests.
In no time at all you will have the whole group, up active, enjoying themselves without being self conscious. Why? Because we know how to run and organise games that bring out the best qualities in people. Easy to learn, simple to play, non competitive and friendlies to start with.
Then moving onto to more structured games with complexities that challenge the mind and corporate body. How did we become good at running games for corporate groups?
Our experience in facilitation of outdoor education programs, after school events and 20 years of improvising activities with no props trained us on this journey. We thought up whacky, wonderful, improvised games. While sharing our personal insights and stories with 1,000’s who have shaped our skills.
Let us, now shape and build your teams to be more functional, effective and efficient – just by playing the right games with the right people in the right places!
