It’s becoming a bit cliché at this point yet no less true: the hustle is real.
And what better way to reward the hard working top performers that comprise your group than hovering in a heli alongside glaciers so close you can count the icicles, skimming the seas in an America’s Cup yacht with a crew of professional sailors or savoring some of the best wines in the world during a cultural performance by the legendary Maori, and perhaps, a culinary workshop featuring a traditional hangi meal. These New Zealand incentive experiences are just the tip of the iceberg.
