10 Team Hosted Experiences to get your team through lockdown.

Before we start - this list is not exhaustive. There is so much more for you and your team to experience!

As the Delta strain continues with its nationwide lockdown tour here in Australia, most of us are at home reminiscing physical coffee catchups with our colleagues, and wondering if our office plants are doing okay. It’s tough on all of us, so it’s important now, more than ever, to check in with each other and keep your team strong.

Creating authentic connections through team games and activities is key to forging that social connection among team members. We thought we’d help you help your team by rounding up some of our Hosted Experiences.

Needless to say, all these Experiences are Australia time-zone friendly.
