What’s the difference between an effective team building exercise and a fun day out with work colleagues? At Team Bonding we believe that the difference is the type of activity undertaken as well as the amount of thought and planning that should go into such an event. Any team building event should have a clear purpose and goals in mind. That being said, there’s no reason why “team building” and “fun” should be mutually exclusive: the activities that are well-planned and where everyone gets involved often turn
