Our "everyday" offerings
(Contact for pricing as elements are customizable)


Micro events can be more impactful than large-scale programs. If your company has a large event, creating a small, intimate gathering to take place inside the program is your best way to create community and drive business.

Rising costs keeping you from holding in-person gatherings? Let us bring a wild adventure to your participants' screens through one of our Zoom-based virtual adventures!

Spontaneous Think Tanks (In-person or virtual)

Add free-flowing peer conversations into your event to drive active conversation, idea sharing, and problem solving. Facilitation can be 100% peer-led, or run by your company's SMEs on the topics crowdsourced from the participants. 

Think tanks fit well into existing conference programs, as an add-on pre-event program, or as a stand-alone event, and can be turned into full multi-day experiential programs anywhere in the world.

Zoom-based virtual adventures

Contrary to popular belief, highly engaging virtual programs don't have to break the bank - and they can take place just on Zoom. 

Treat your customers, prospects, or employees to an hour of fun by using the screen as a portal to exciting adventures. 

Need some business content? We'll marry the adventure with your subject matter (Talking about cloud? How about skydiving? Got a supply chain conversation? How about an exploration of a coffee farm?), and craft the agenda to ensure you have time for content delivery and conversation, too!

Sure, you can bring in a consultant to tell you how to run your business and help you align on a mission statement. Then you can go to a great group dinner and get to know each other. Or.....

You can plan the most impactful, eventful, and fun-filled business strategy session your team has ever been a part of. We're experts at customizing a one or two-day program anywhere in the world that will get your team laughing, sharing, and revealing their expertise which will drive your strategy further, faster than you ever thought possible.
