At Travel Out There we have developed a Program designed for your team to spend some time to 'connect' and collaborate, with the assistance of a key trainer,  on strategic issues that aim to dramatically improve growth, profitability and other areas of company performance.  The impact of taking your team out of the normal working environment really does help encourage a "think different approach" in tackling some of challenges you may be facing as a company. 
Complimenting the Connect experience Travel Out There then faclitates a disconnect experience – where all the participants have to leave their phones, tablets and computers at the hotel and head out for 2 days in to Latvia's wilderness. We guarantee you will come back as a fresher, more productive and creative team.  Our standard programme involves going out in to nature and working with our team building facilitators on team building workshops. 
We can incorporate some wellbeing activites such as yoga, mediation, creative workshops and or cullinary team building in to the prorgramme.
