The Amazing Race
We bring the exciting TV series to your conference venue or workplace and lead delegates on an adventure they will never forget! Available on site at conference venues, off-site exploring the surrounds of a conference destination or within your city. Teams will solve clues that lead them to team challenge stations, detours and roadblocks! Take the challenge!
Laser Clay Shooting
Experience the thrill and excitement of shooting clay pigeons as they fly through the air. This dynamic and interactive activity uses authentic 12 gauge shotguns that have been converted to fire laser beams. Clays with omni-directional tape are fired from the launcher - when the shooter scores a hit the beam is reflected back to the gun and registers on the electronic scoreboard. This event is sure to be a hit with your team!
It is the task of your team to design and build a rocket ship that will dock safely within the landing zone! Teams must think smart, work together and show ingenuity to ensure success. All teams connect their rocket ship to the zip line and the finale will literally finish with a bang! The rockets are powered by a model rocket engine and will fly at speeds of up to 60 kph along the zip line. It must be seen to be believed! Will your team make it to The Landing Zone?
Teams will need to outwit and outplay their opponents in a fun and competitive survivor challenge based on the hit TV series. This activity is based on the "immunity challenges" that see the teams competing head to head at a series of initiative, problem solving tasks that require the whole team working together to defeat your opponents. Competitive, fun and requires a great deal of teamwork!
Beach / Mini Olympics
We bring the passion, energy and excitement of the Olympic Games to your team with this outdoor team building event. The Beach / Mini Olympics is a fun activity that provokes competitiveness and plenty of laughter. The event involves teams rotating around various sports such as Petanque, Archery, Ultimate Frisbee, Catapult Firing, T-Ball, Team Tennis, Volleyball, DodgeBall, and Bamboo Towers. Coming to a beach or park near you!
A unique team challenge where delegates will find their competitive spirit and put their thinking caps on. Using maps of your conference resort and a list of cryptic clues delegates will uncover a series of life size problem solving tasks. Successful completion of each task rewards teams with a crucial piece of the Matrix. When all pieces are joined together the Oracle will be discovered!
A competitive archery session will awaken, refocus and keep your delegates on target during your next conference. This ancient form of weaponry is suitable for delegates of all fitness levels and ability. Your delegates will love the rare opportunity to feel the power of firing an arrow! Available at conference venues with an appropriate space - they are real arrows after all!
Rather than running, jumping and swimming your way to victory teams will tackle a very different series of events. Grape stomping, wine spitting, cork popping and an array of winery related activities make for a competitive, informative and hilarious event. Great in conjunction with our very popular Grape to Glass wine blending activity - as delegates will blend and design a label for your very own company wine that will be bottled and delivered to you post event.
Tikes on Bikes
This powerful and life changing experience is the perfect combination of teamwork and corporate responsibility. Teams of delegates construct a brand new bicycle assuming they will ultimately be involved in a bike race. Just as teams are about to race - the surprise is unveiled and one child per team from an under privileged charity group enter the room to receive their new bike! The atmosphere changes as delegates come to realise that it is all about the "bigger picture".
Grape to Glass
Discover the Sommelier within as teams of delegates blend their very own wine under the tuition of an experienced Hunter Valley Wine Maker. The end result will see each delegate receiving a bottle of the winning blend with the winning label design upon it! A great team event - fantastic for those conferencing in the Hunter Valley!
A corporate drumming session will motivate and inspire your delegates both as individuals and as a collective group. Surprised delegates take their seats to discover a drum in front of them and over the next 45 minutes the Human Rhythms team will take them on an unforgettable musical journey, where laughter and elation is achieved in a high-energy interactive performance.
My Pizza Rules
Bring the excitement and drama of the reality TV cooking shows to your conference with this competitive cooking event. Teams will put their cooking skills to the test being judged on their entree, main and dessert. A team event with a delicious flavour!
Teams will manage time, resources and personnel to build their countries pipeline. The challenge is then to negotiate with the other 'country's' to connect their pipeline to all the other parties to create one continuous pipeline. By the completion of the project the whole group will have built a long and winding pipeline that is put to the test when the resources are sent down the line.
Battle of the Minds
Battle of the Minds is the ultimate indoor team building event for high impact in a short amount of time. Teams are each seated at their own table and issued with the Battle of the Minds booklet containing 45 challenges in total. A competition that will send your delegates into overdrive!
Bridge To Unity
An exciting construction project with teams working in unison to design and build an impressive bridge. Each team builds the bridge to their customer expectations while overcoming limited resources, communication barriers and strict timelines. The exciting finale sees each team's individual component bridge being installed as part of the huge, extended Company Bridge and tested with a remote controlled car.
Blimp My Ride
This fun and colourful challenge sees teams able to use a variety of resources that will combine to create a Blimp. The enormous helium balloons that provide the floating power are issued to each team. The teams must then gain extra resources by solving team based challenges. It requires design, creativity, construction, ingenuity and will finish with a sky of colour as the blimps set sail to discover who is the winner of the Blimp my Ride Challenge?
Give back to the community in this amazing working bee event. Delegates must turn a room full of boxed toys, dry goods and gifts into hampers for needy families. Pinnacle provides everything from the contents to the hampers to the wrapping and ribbon. An overwhelming sense of pride will fill the room as the charity partner presents a thankyou speech on behalf of the families.
Let your delegates be the creative ones. Teams make their own movies with each individual contributing to the success of the film. The premiere showing of the films takes place in conjunction with your evening meal that night. Roll out the red carpet for the Oscars awards such as Best Picture and Best Actor. This team-oriented activity has been described as innovative and 'ridiculously' fun!
Art lets people communicate in a way that words never can. Many people feel they don't have a creative bone in their body - yet up to the age of 9 or 10 we all loved to create!! Working with a professional artist, teams discover the tricks of a professional artist as they smash through negative barriers and mindsets and discover their creative potential. How? By your teams turning ideas and thoughts into a masterpiece that they never thought possible!
Build a Functional Team
"Not finance. Not strategy. Not technology. It is teamwork that remains the ultimate competitive advantage, both because it is powerful and so rare." Whenever we repeat that saying to a group of leaders, they immediately nod their heads, but in a desperate sort of way. They seem to grasp the truth of it while simultaneously surrendering to the impossibility of actually making it happen. The Teams Dysfunction Presentation makes this a possibility!
Using a model based upon the writings of Patrick Lencioni as a platform for thinking about how some teams typically sabotage themselves and in comparison effective teams succeed. This session will flow through the 5 functions that create a successful and functional team: Trust / Conflict / Commitment / Accountability / Results. This program is complimented with both indoor and/or outdoor team building activities.
Behavioural Profiling (DiSC)
DISC is a personal assessment tool used to improve work productivity, teamwork, and communication. DISC is non-judgmental and helps people discuss their behavioural differences.
DISC profiles help you and your team:
- Increase your self-knowledge: how you respond to conflict, what motivates you, what causes you stress, and how you solve problems
- Learn how to adapt your own style to get along better with others
- Foster constructive and creative group interactions
- Facilitate better teamwork and minimise team conflict
- Manage more effectively by understanding the dispositions and priorities of team members
Values Alignment & Team Planning Workshop
All workplace teams need direction and as the goal posts are constantly changing with external factors so too will the direction. It is crucial to regularly assess the current goals and ensure the path to success is clear and methods in place to achieve results. Each of our workshops is tailored to suit the dynamics of your team; whether you are a new team forming, a restructured team or an existing team in need of inspiration or clarity our facilitators will help provide the answers you are looking for.
Everyone should have a coach. Everyone! To get the best results from any team or individual a coach will provide direction, guidance, goals, accountability and encouragement. The coaching relationship is a solution-focused process of:
- Goal setting
- Taking action that ensures sustainable behaviour change
- Reflecting to make sense of these changes in terms of new understandings
Establishing a coaching program within your workplace will enable leaders to be more influential, sales teams to thrive and people to flourish in challenging environments.
Pinnacle Team Development conducts leadership development programs around Australia. We enable organisations to achieve their strategic goals through tailoring leadership solutions to your requirements.
Our leadership programs include:
- Leadership Development Retreats
- Keynote Speaking

A Night At The Races
Whether you are a punting enthusiast or a complete novice this is a fantastic night of entertainment. Each delegate will receive $$ to punt on each race aiming to pick the winners from the form guide. Once all the bets are placed the races will be viewed by the cheering crowd on the big screen. This is a great themed evening with delegates dressing up and prizes awarded for fashions on the field.
Teams of delegates will be competing against rival table groups at a range of challenge activities conducted between courses and after dessert. Activities include shock reaction, newspaper dress up, barrel of monkeys, and much more. A night your delegates will remember for years to come! A fun and interactive evening that will leave you begging for more!
A murder has been committed and it is up to you to solve the crime. Delegates must carefully inspect the crime scene complete with victim, weapons, clues and police tape. As a table group, delegates prepare a re-enactment of the crime to portray their version of events. Each group will perform a 2-5 minute skit aiming to impress the judges with their investigative skills but more so aiming to entertain the crowd!
Dazzle your delegates with a magic show that will leave them in awe for months to come. The Comedy Magic Show is a stand up piece lasting approximately 45 minutes. In this, you will experience sleight of hand magic, comedy gags, audience participation, non-stop laughter and entertainment! Or you may prefer a close up display that is suitable for smaller groups and those wanting a hand on experience! Our magician will not disappoint!
Murder Mystery Night
A murder mystery is a fun, exciting and extremely silly game of 'whodunit' hosted by the Murder Mystery Fun team. The aim of the game is very simple; solve a murder before the guilty party strikes again. What makes this entertainment truly special is your guests play the chief murder suspects with every delegate playing a different yet crucial character to the overall story - great over dinner and for those who love to dress up.
This session is a great opener to any conference. Your delegates will be left in stitches after a series of interactive and lively games that will break down the barriers that exist between strangers. Delegates will be swept into a frenzy of excitement interacting with the other attendees in a unique and entertaining manner. This session is available indoors or out at any conference venue.
F1 Rocket Races
This is a construction based event whereby each team is allocated a set of resources with which to build a Formula One race car. The car is designed around its power source - a rocket! The rocket is a specially designed piece of equipment that will create a blast of power generated by a high pressure cycling foot pump. The result is a car that shoots out of the starting gates and hopefully beats your opponents by travelling the greatest distance along the conference room floor.
Eddy the Egg
The challenge in this thirty-minute period is to construct a mechanism that can catch and support a raw egg after it is dropped from a height. In small groups of around five, delegates use straws, sticky tape and ingenuity to create a capsule to keep Eddy safe. A very simple, exciting and fun break activity that is guaranteed to liven the troops for the next session.
The Stretching Guy
"The Stretching Guy" is an amazing corporate presentation that, within seconds, will invigorate, inspire and enlighten your delegates. The Stretching Guy harnesses a unique approach to presenting the issues that most of us are afraid of discussing. Break the power point marathon with sessions available indoors or in the great outdoors.
Mouse Trap Grand Prix
This is a fun, spirited design competition and race that will have everyone cheering. Each Mousetrap car is built from balsa wood, plastic "CD's" for wheels, metal rods for axles, construction paper for the body. The spring of a mousetrap provides the main power for the car, though we also provide other materials to make key racing modifications to enhance speed and distance. Each team is given a kit of identical equipment - a set time frame to plan, build, test their cars before the race!
Morning Exercise Sessions
The best known hang over cure is exercise. As most conferences involve your delegates having a few wines over dinner why not ensure their alertness within the conference sessions by providing a morning exercise session? We have lots of offer and you can provide one or many to suit the needs of your team. Choose from:
- Tai Chi
- Morning Walk
