IMMEDIATE RESULTS: We’re going to help you build team work and communication and then we’re going to show you how to put it into action, right then and there, under the supervision of a trained professional.

COST EFFECTIVE: PTE workshops offer all of the benefits of a corporate retreat without actually retreating.  Help your employees relax and rejuvenate in PTE’s creative setting.

BANG FOR YOUR BUCK: Getting your employees active and playing together is great.  It’s even better when your employees are active, playing together, and learning the skills they need to communicate with each other in more effective ways.

Why do this?
These workshops develop team building in a way that nothing else can.  Your staff will learn to listen to each other in a new ways, as well as to work together to trust each other and to collaborate openly.  We offer a very honest approach to team-building, communication and inter-personal awareness.

Anything is possible
