Amsterdam Team Building

Looking for cost-effective team building?

… then you need look no further our Amsterdam team building treasure hunt is for you!

Excellent team building takes place in a relaxed but challenging environment. Traditional team building supplies one or the other, making it less than 100% successful.  Very often, traditional team building challenges are physical and requiring good spatial awareness. This reduces their accessibility and demotivates.

A corporate treasure hunt in Amsterdam offers a series of creative challenges with a fun atmosphere. The perfect combination for building effective teamwork.

  • Inclusive – suitable for all ages and abilities.

Successful Team Building

Most traditional team building events are less than successful. Staff groan at the idea of being stuck outside at a venue, giving directions to blindfolded colleagues, building structures with tyres, barrels and planks or standing around in the cold and wet waiting for their turn to drive a golf buggy with reversed steering round a course for a few minutes.

Traditional team building is tedious. It often requires just two skills – physical strength and spatial awareness. OK, it should need communication too, but usually, the day is dominated by just a few people. The rest feel left out – exactly the opposite of what you want!

For innovative and successful team building, choose a treasure hunt.

The treasure hunt in Amsterdam addresses all key workplace skills. It encourages participation, everyone feels part of the team.

Winning the treasure is the physical goal of the day, but to do that, participants need to work together and become involved.  Instead of being in the same field, the same wood or the same venue for the entire event, you have Amsterdam! That makes it more interesting and motivational.

The Amsterdam treasure hunt can be as long or as short as you require. We recommend at least a couple of hours in order to feel the team building benefits. Many of our clients take a full day in order to maximise their return on investment.

There is no minimum or maximum group size, the treasure hunt works equally as well for a small team as for your entire company.

If you are using it as part of a larger event, e.g. conference, if a session finishes early or late, the treasure hunt is easily adapted.

Why Amsterdam Team Building?

Sending your team overseas for a team building event such as the Amsterdam treasure hunt takes them far from the normal business environment. This allows them to focus on the team building event in new and stimulating surroundings.

Amsterdam is a fascinating city with its canals and roads running side by side.  It has the oldest stock exchange in the world, it is the Netherlands’ commercial capital and one of the top European financial centres, so there is a business-like atmosphere. This makes it the perfect choice for any company away day, whether it is a corporate reward or team building.

The city developed around a dam on the river Amstel, hence its name. Amsterdam was founded in the middle ages and was granted city status in the first few years of the fourteenth century. Following the revolt against Spain and the eighty years war that led to Dutch independence, Amsterdam became an important centre of trade and has remained so ever since. These days, it is still one of the largest European ports.
