Quick team building activities are cost–effective team events that run for a shorter amount of time than regular (or traditional) team building games. Durations can vary from 15-45 minutes, making them a flexible addition to meetings. These shorter team building activities are ideal for both remote and in-person teams. Quick team activities are often associated with budget team building activities and icebreaker games.

How long do your quick team building activities last?
Our quick team activities last for 45 minutes. However, our times are flexible so we can adapt to your needs. You can find game durations in the ‘How can this event be delivered?’ section on our individual game pages.
Can we host our event on Zoom?

In-Person In-Person Team Building Activities are designed to physically bring everyone together to complete a series of challenges or tasks. Quick team building activities played in-person are designed for indoor spaces (your office, conference room or space of your choice.)
Virtual Virtual Team Building Activities use many of the same elements as in-person team building activities, however, they’re designed to be played remotely. Teams are still divided into groups and complete a series of tasks or challenges that encourage engagement and fun, but the delivery of virtual team building activities means they can be played from anywhere.
Hybrid Hybrid Team Building Activities offer a blended option that suits both in-person and remote teams, using gameplay that can be adapted to suit a wide variety of participants, both in and out of the office.
Will we get our own event host?
Yes! Our expert Remote Hosts will be on standby throughout the activity to support teams, encourage communication and provide a fun virtual wrap-up at the end of the activity. Watch this video to find out more about why we use Remote Hosts.
Can we include short team activities as part of our meetings?
Sure! Our short team building activities are ideal for kick-starting meetings, senior strategy days, etc. We highly recommend our Icebreaker Games or Office Games.
