Testimonial

Because of a lot of travelling and new team members coming in, our team had not been behaving as a team lately. So I was looking for a team activity that was not too invasive but allowed our team to have some fun together. The creativity workshop was the perfect solution. Short, instructive, to the point and fun. We all came out newly motivated and sort of Zen and relaxed. I can highly recommend the workshops to get off the corporate treadmill and reconnect with your creativity as a team.
