We started creating online virtual team building events in 2018 long before the COVID 19 pandemic made virtual teams commonplace. We saw a trend toward teams made up of people who were spread across regions or even countries, creating a need for team building events for dispersed teams, that was not being addressed. Collaborating and problem solving online in many ways is more difficult than in person sessions and requires more focus on good communication skills, better organization and a higher level of trust among the team members. As more and more teams move to a virtual model, the need for bonding and working together as a is higher than ever. Teams need to find ways to break down the barriers to effective collaboration in an virtual setting. The products below are designed to help teams learn and grow while still providing a fun and engaging team event.

Training Focus
The focus of this escape room adventure is to build critical communication skills when team members have different assigned tasks and different information. The adventure pushes the team to analyze their own information and determine what might be useful to them and other team members. In business problem solving situations, communication of the right information can mean the difference between an okay solution and a great solution. Often the right information is available, but the person holding that information doesn’t realize that what they have is needed by others in the organization. This event shows the importance of sharing information. 

Inspired by our favorite Secret Agent Stories
