Team Building

We deliver unforgettable team development experiences

At Cycle Canton we believe that a happier team reaps success for the entire organization. That is why we invest energy in creating serious yet fun experiences for each stage of team development. Be in touch on email at info@cyclecanton.com or WeChat (bram_wechat) to discuss the options.

Our team building experiences are built around team bonding, team building and/or team coaching, to help your team grow stronger. Whether you are looking to have a fun day out with the team, are trying to improve team work and engagement, or are actively working towards developing a shared vision and collaboration. We can turn scavenger hunts into business case scenarios, cycle rides into team missions, and arts workshops into creative strategic planning activities. We challenge teams to form, define goals and strategies, foster psychological safety, handle conflict management, and manage diverse leadership behaviors. Working with you and our partners, we craft experiences specific to your organization’s needs and wishes, to help your team perform, meet organizational goals, and nurture leadership development.

Clients over the years mostly include corporates, consulates, and international schools. Our events are all-inclusive, and everything is catered for from the first to last minute, from activities to food, transport to hotels, and insurance to ‘fapiaos’. Professional photo-/videographers can be arranged. Events can be hosted in English and Mandarin Chinese.

Some of our popular team building experiences are shown below. These can also be combined with any other activities you may be interested in.
