RE-Develop is not venue based and has access to a number of venues nationwide.
Gallup indicates that only 33% of US employees are engaged at work, with the worldwide stat being a shocking 13%.
In an effort to change this stat, many organisations focus on team building activities which should, in our opinion, rather be called “team bonding” activities. They bond the team but don’t drill down to core issues like trust, transparency, power plays etc which ultimately affect the functionality of a team. When RE-Develop is contracted to build a team, that’s what we do.
Over a period of time, and through the integration of strategies such as 360 reviews, group coaching sessions and experiential learning activities we provide opportunities for teams to REDefine themselves and in so doing, RE-Develop new patterns of thinking and behaviour that are beneficial to the team and the organisation.
“McLuhan believed that experiential learning has always been and will continue to be a major, if not the major, way in which most of us attempt to make sense of our universe.” (Adventure Programming, Miles & Priest)

Working with age groups from Gr 00 upwards, our outdoor education programmes are outcomes based and tailor made to align with our client’s objectives. Due to the popularity of our programmes, most of our clients re-book a year in advance in order to secure their preferred dates.
