can go a long way towards building TRUST…”

Team building, as any exercise, needs to be repetitive and systematic. Team building is the most effective when individuals can partake in a competition, have fun and be a part of it. Team building is not only about camaraderie: the real team building is much more powerful than paintball or cooking classes.
Urban Quest was amazingly fun experience for my team. No only was it fun but also a great team building experience that brings out everyone's strengths. Great bonds were formed and the smile lasted for the rest of the day!.
So well done! We had such a great day, Serge was very professional, helped get everyone on board at the beginning of the day and set the scene for all of us. Controlling 20 plus women who are all very forthright was no easy feet, but he did so with ease, respect and a sense if fun and adventure. The team also customised the game to fit in with our goals! So well done! Thanks Urban Quest!
This was a fabulous team building activity, that everyone is still raving about Monday! Thanks Urban Quest!
