Character Builders The Bigger Picture

They say a picture paints a thousand words so to help get the message across we have designed a canvas workshop where each team member as part of the larger team must work together to make sense of the ‘big picture’.  Starting with an individual canvas, staff must work together and design a team canvas to finally gel with part of giant canvas structure for the entire staff contingent. Our facilitators will take your teams through a safe self-discovery and team bonding session to help them identify with their ‘big picture’. This is a very powerful activity that helps all staff members to acknowledge themselves and each other as part of the team.

We supply all facilitation, paints, canvases, drop sheets and materials. The finished product is a real possession for the team and will look great as a feature for any wall back at the office.
