The main goals of corporate team-building are to improve productivity and motivation within the  workplace. Taking employees out of the work place environment helps groups break down social and professional barriers, eliminate distractions, and ultimately have fun.

“Thank you for an excellent Team Building day, it is clear that your staff enjoy the work they do which makes for a rewarding experience for all. The organisation and professionalism displayed in both the preparation and the execution of the day was excellent, and all at a very reasonable cost.” 

Laura Croxford, The AA -



  • The main goals of team-building are to improve productivity and motivation. Taking employees out of the work place helps groups break down social and professional barriers, eliminate distractions, and have fun. The benefits of team building programs are so significant that many corporations have incorporated teambuilding strategies into their standard training curriculum.

    At Gateway Adventure we can help you or your organisation achieve your goals. With an experienced team of qualified training staff and with over 50 years combined experience, we know a thing or two about helping people fulfill their ambitions.
