As part of our corporate Amazing Race in Sydney and Melbourne, participants are asked to undertake our charm challenge. This includes having to find a worthy recipient of a random act of kindness.

So, you have a teambuilding activity in your diary and you want all that winning kudos to go your team’s way……but how? What makes for a winning team on a corporate team building exercise?
