Corporate / Team building Workshop – EVOHE
“As the team leader of a progressive company I am always looking for meaningful activities that are both fun and productive. Our Bodybalance Slackline session with Cooper was all this and more.The team absolutely loved it!
I watched the team have fun, focus and set goals. They encouraged each other when the going got tough and celebrated each step of success along the slackline.
I noticed how the team energy from the session produced a unity that carried on in to the daily activities of the business.
I appreciated the method and delivery of the session by Cooper. He was professional and clear with instructions and I felt confident with his management of safety.
Cooper was also very compassionate and considerate of each persons physical/mental/emotional capacity on the day and I know that each team member walked away with their own personal gem from the experience.
I look forward to including Slacklining as a regular team building experience
within my company.”
