Virtual Team Building

Are you an executive struggling to lead your team virtually during the pandemic?

Managing “Zoomed-out” virtual teams can be overwhelming, confusing, and chaotic when work/life compartmentalization is no longer possible.

Virtual work is creating new challenges for executives including:

  • retaining your existing client base
  • supporting your clients & team & in the midst of trauma
  • accommodating asynchronous communication styles across multiple platforms

Executive Oasis International is pleased to unveil our suite of experiential virtual team building to address these challenges.

Our Flagship Programme:

Lemons to Lemonade: Squeezing Opportunities Out of Adversity When Business Goes Sour

Group Size: 6 – 20

Delivery Options:

Face-to-Face: 1 1/2 Days

Virtual: Four 2-hour weekly sessions *

Lemons to Lemonade: Squeezing Opportunities Out of Adversity When Business Goes Sour

The fallout from COVID-19 will continue for the foreseeable future.

Our brand-new virtual team building simulation guides your team through the process of transforming your business to thrive during a time of turbulence and uncertainty.

In Jamaica the beverage will be lime squash, rum punch, or limeade. Until COVID-19 has been contained, there will be no hands-on mixology. Instead, a professional mixologist will bring the teams’ creations to life.

Bespoke Caribbean

Custom Crafted, Bespoke Team Building

If none of our existing simulations “hit the mark”, rest assured, our capabilities extend to custom designing an approach to address your organization’s specific needs.

Simulations in the Caribbean can include market challenges, creating and recording music or African-Caribbean drumming, initiatives to help local communities, projects to help schools, raft building to help river raft captains, construction, gardening, and much more.

If your organization requires more intensive support, we provide long term consulting and facilitate on-site, brainstorming, and problem-solving sessions.

Need a custom curated business simulation, executive retreat, or team building?

Many of our team building simulations began as off-the-beaten-track executive retreats to inspire discerning clients.

Our owner, Anne Thornley-Brown, specialized in instructional design for many years so we have the capability to design and create custom curated experiences to fit your specifications.

Give us your:

  • dream experience
  • objectives
  • timeframe
  • budget

We’ll do the rest.

Your dream…our design. A winning combination.

Visexecutaries: Seizing Opportunities in our Shifting Corporate Landscape

Group Size: 6 – 20

Delivery Options:

Face-to-Face: 3 – 4+ Days

Virtual: 1 1/2 – 2 hours weekly sessions *

Visexecutaries = Visionary Executives

Visexecutaries: Seizing Opportunities in our Shifting Corporate Landscape is an Apprentice inspired team building simulation for times of turbulence, change and uncertainty.

This powerful business simulation was initially designed as a response to the economic fallout from SARS in Asia and Toronto.

Teams design and launch an actual product or service.

In the Caribbean challenges can involve coaching market vendors, helping farmers, initiatives for schools or health care facilities, or guerilla marketing.

Teams meet in the boardroom to present their strategy and results. Best practices are highlighted and prizes are awarded but nobody gets fired.

Tropika, a South African brand, teamed up with Coza Productions to create a great guerilla marketing campaign combined with viral video.
It’s a great example of a project that would work for Visexecutaries.

Luxury Upgrades – Caribbean Team Building

Luxury Corporate Event Planning

We offer clients who book our services to design executive retreats, team building, and corporate events the convenience of one stop shopping to find suitable venues, handle logistics, and plan the unforgettable events to round out your agenda.

In the Caribbean, corporate teams can select from beach galas, mountain hideaways, and rainforest settings.

The right setting really opens up the possibilities. For example, we surprised one of our regular clients during their President’s Club with world class polo featuring Ralph Lauren Polo model and internationally renowned professional polo player Nacho Figueras.

A Quick Glimpse at the Caribbean

Each destination has a unique culture shaped by African, Amerindian, and British, Spanish, French, or Dutch influences. It’s an unparalleled opportunity for your team to explore historical sites, experiment and try new activities, cuisine and music. If you so desire, we can even build an opportunity to give back to the community into your agenda.

Everyone I talked to about a post-Covid Caribbean mentioned one thing: a hope that the pandemic might result in a different kind of tourist: a traveler, not necessarily richer in money, but more conscious, more of an explorer…
