Executive Teams

Onsite Team Cooking

Cringe-FREE Guaranteed!

C Suite / Executive Team Fun

C Suite teams require a sophisticated offering, facilitated by someone with the business acumen they can respect. A person who understands their world and who’s spent hundreds of hours working with and facilitating senior teams.  With the expertise to seamlessly deliver the objectives of the strategy session, within the team activity itself.  And then sometimes you just need to bring the team together after a long day strategising, sneaking in key messages, keeping it light and fun.

  • How to get yourself and your team “Unstuck” with unique Pattern Disrupt techniques.
