Who we are

Years of experience working in a multi-cultural  environment often in arduous conditions in conflict environments gave me the ultimate "class room" to develop my team building skills. For over 35 years I have faced many challenges on several continents. Success was always based on the foundations of a coherent team that "worked as one".  Fully understanding the concept of "Work Hard, Play Hard", we are perfectly positioned to provide either or a balance between the two.  To create "Outdoor & Active", I have moulded a team to provide equilibrium a balance of youth and experience, military doctrine and "free spirit adventurers" blended together to provide you with a first-class event. Should you require, our services can be underpinned by professional Psychologists and therapists who are able to explain the theory behind the activities you will perform. We have developed methods, styles and philosophies that have a proven track record. Whether you would like to simply bring your team together for some quality time or develop a stronger, more efficient and effective team. We have created the resources to help you.
