I couldn’t have asked for a better partner to work with! Dan and his team were incredibly tuned into the needs of our business and what would work for our team. Their team went above and beyond to trouble shoot and find alternatives to any problem or issue that came up. They were flexible, organised, friendly and a lot of fun to work with.


Offsite Brief

For this company’s first offsite, they wanted to bring everyone together for a few days of team building, team bonding and team adventures. Lisbon was the perfect choice for their trip. As well as it being a beautiful city with stunning architecture and plenty of amazing bars and restaurants, it also has the Arrabida National Park on it’s doorstep and stunning beaches a short drive away, for great activity options. They stayed in a modern hotel, with top facilities, and a rooftop pool with views over Lisbon. We added time into the itinerary for a Company Day – a rare and important opportunity for the team to work together face-to-face, plus a sunset boat trip and beach party so the team could also let their hair down, relax, and let the good times roll.
