Live and Virtual Teambuilding


In these times of virtual work, teambuilding has never been more important.

Following are dozens of teambuilding ideas, both live and virtual.

For Your Remote Team

Ideas for remote teams from Sharon Fisher, president of Play With a Purpose. Fisher is the go-to resource for business games, the creator of the Play Room at IMEX Americas and has spoken about and led numerous group activities at Prevue’s Visionary Summits over the years.

Chocolate Teambuilding

From the Hershey Chocolate Challenge to Teambonding chocolate cooking and baking games, chocolate teambuilding is a sweet addition for your next live event.


Haka is the traditional dance of the Māori people of New Zealand and is also a powerful group activity. And now it’s virtual, too!

High-Tech Games

Great for employees in the high-tech fields. Attendees can create videos, build robots and collect points in real-life “Amazing Race” excursions at the click of a button on their phone.

Flash Mobs

Los Angeles-based experiential event-planning company Mystery Trip helps meeting planners incorporate offbeat activities for groups of five to 200, including a flash mob exercise.
