Corporate Events and Team Building

Developing trust, communication, accountability and camaraderie is important to a team's success, but the phrase team-building often gets a bad rap. The activities might not resonate with the group, or the structure might seem too much like a regular day at the office. Odds are, your team is ready for something different.

Here at SAIT, we're using our expertise in applied education to turn the concept of team building on its head. Our custom shared experiences for corporate teams feature interactive learning opportunities that are engaging and most of all, fun!

The road to a better bottom line and a stronger corporate culture is paved with happy and productive people. Get your team out of the office and into a unique, casual atmosphere that brings people together in new ways.

Culinary experiences

Perfect for foodies, SAIT's culinary experiences combine luxurious food choices with hands-on prep, tastings and pairings. Your culinary education experience is completely customizable and includes options for corporate team building as well as client parties or other social engagements.

Based on SAIT's world-class professional cooking programs, our culinary experiences take you on a hands-on journey through the creative culinary process. Visit our live kitchen and dining environment with colleagues, clients or friends and cook up some delicious memories together.

All our experiences feature:

  • hands-on learning opportunities with trained educators
  • flexible calendar availability, including weekends

Get Energy series

Game on! Our Get Energy team challenges create authentic opportunities for corporate teams to get their hands dirty. Using state-of-the-art labs and simulators, participants will train using real world scenarios. Teams will work together to achieve actual industry targets and outcomes and, because a little competition never hurt anyone, we'll be keeping score.

We know communication between the field, operations and administration is challenging if your team isn't connected by a common goal. Similarly, your customer relationships are impacted when the team and clients aren't speaking the same language.

Our world class instructors at the MacPhail School of Energy offer this fun and informative way to bridge the gap for non-technical teams working in the energy sector.
