Play Outside The Cubicle
(In Orlando and beyond)
We believe that all work and no play makes the cubicle a dull world. And, in dull cubicles the world over people are watching the clock, just waiting for the work day to be over.
Some people believe team building has to be studious to get results. But, we ask you, when you were in school did you learn more about building a strong team in math class or in gym? Which did you look forward to more - history or recess? And what did you do in gym and in recess? You played!
It might sound like we’ll start chanting, “win one for the Gipper” at any moment. But, play does connect people making them more passionate about working together towards common goals and using their skills so the entire team can succeed.
So, the next time someone tells you to get serious, laugh! The whole office will laugh with you and your company will laugh all the way to the bank because play gets results!
The Audience Goes Wild
“Thank you for a very different and fun team building event. I have been a participant in many of these (boring) events during my thirty years in the corporate world. Without a doubt this one was one of the very few that I truly enjoyed. I will have no hesitation to recommend your company to my clients.” – Gloria M., HelmsBriscoe

Wild Harry Rules To Live By
- If you have a wild hair don’t tame it, unleash it!
- Carrots are good for you, but chocolate is good for your soul. Exception: chocolate bunnies - they’re just wrong!
- To avoid hair-raising experiences, over prepare.
- When in doubt, just take the next small hop.
- Develop a 24-carrot heart of gold by helping those in need. It will give you a warm fuzzy feeling.
- Don’t cotton to taking yourself too seriously, nobody else does!
- Close your ears to what other people think of you – it’s none of your business.
- Don’t turn tail if you lose, or you’ll lose the lesson.
- Sink your teeth into life.
- Life isn’t a race. As my friend Tortoise taught me, if you slow down and enjoy yourself along the way, you may even come out ahead.
- If you get thumping mad, don’t burrow in – agree to disagree.
Groups Large & Small, Far & Wide
Anyone who believes small isn’t important should keep Neil Armstrong’s words, "One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind" in mind. Little things make big things happen, which is why all our groups, big or small are important to us.
The experience we gained from putting on countless activities for smaller groups led us to land the largest team building-at-sea in history for a corporate group of 2,500. So, whether you have 10 or 10,000 participants, we promise your group will have a blast. And, like Neil Armstrong, we’d be over the moon to travel anywhere you’d like (without all of those noxious gasses).

"I always cursed my sloped forehead when I shopped for hats, but it turned out to be a blessing today" gushed Sally.

Wild Team Building Adventures
Fun With Lisa & Jane
Wild Harry: Why team building?
Lisa: When I was in college, I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life. Then, a fellow student told me she was a Leisure Services major.
Wild Harry: What is that?!
Lisa: That’s exactly what my parents said! Believe me, they were none too pleased! The degree taught me how to organize recreational programs. My friends made fun of me all of the time saying, "What games did you play in school today?" But you know, I’m one of the few people I know who still works in their field and one of the even fewer who loves their job.
Jane: Team building has always been part of what I do even when it wasn’t "my job." When working for a hotel here in Orlando, one of my tasks was to show a group of sales professionals why our resort was unique. Of course, I put them on a treasure hunt to have them experience it rather than have me tell them. We definitely got buy-in from the team and they talked about that hunt for months afterwards. It definitely worked and I was hooked.
Wild Harry: How did the two of you meet?
Lisa: We both worked for a team building company and we loved getting to brainstorm ideas for new activities, create clues for hunts, etc. We always dreamed about opening a similar – but wildly different - team building company some day and we finally did it!
Wild Harry: What do you like most about each other?
Jane: Lisa is a dynamo and her passion motivates me every day to be better. We have always enjoyed working on projects together – so why not work on the ultimate project, our own company? I can’t even imagine doing this without her.
Lisa: Jane is one of the most creative people I know. For years she worked in corporate America and she was afraid she’d lost her creativity, but it was just getting stifled. With creativity it’s a case of "use it or lose it" and now she uses it every day!
Wild Harry: What makes your activities different from your competitors?
Lisa: Jane’s background in Marketing and Meeting Planning has given her the eye.
Wild Harry: Not the evil eye, I hope?
Lisa: No, not at all! Although the last time I booked us on a 6:00 am flight, I have seen it. Rather, she strives to make everything look perfect. Whereas a lot of our competitors may stick clip art on rulebooks and photocopy them, Jane insists we use a graphic designer and get everything color printed. Our activities look 100% better than anything out there because of her.
Jane: I can’t believe you told him about that, but I have started a campaign to ban early morning flights. Seriously though, Lisa is a big part of why we are different. Her dedication to detail, commitment to our clients, and uber-creative brain, not to mention the late night working sessions, sets us apart.
Wild Harry: Is there anything else people should know about you?
Jane: There is a sign in the office that states: Dream big, plan well, work hard, smile always and good things will happen. When you live by that and love what you do, good things do happen.
