The universal appeal of spies like James Bond and Jason Bourne has been translated into a team building event that engages participants as they delve into the fascinating world of covert missions, problem solving and intrigue.
TeamBonding first introduced School for Spies as Spy School in 1998. One of our most popular team building programs, our latest version is an enhanced, totally up-to-date evolution of our original “Spy” team building program.
The nation’s most prestigious espionage training academy, the School for Spies, is about to hold its annual graduation. Everyone attending has invested years of grueling effort to become part of the elite group that gets all the glamorous assignments. The problem is, there’s only room at the top for a few outstanding spies. So think of this as your final exam – the chance to prove once and for all who really deserves those international assignments, flying cars and big expense accounts.
Your group is divided into teams representing high-level intelligence organizations from around the world. Each team is armed with a briefing package including coded messages, top-secret passwords, and things too highly classified to mention here. Participants must break codes, follow clues, and retrieve sensitive information, all while pushing their mental acuity (and their scruples) to the limit. Every spy exercise requires a different set of skills and every exercise teaches them something new about themselves and each other.
School for Spies is a perfect way to become more effective at prioritization and activate effective time management techniques. This is a wildly exciting step away from the day-to-day routine, and always filled with hilarious surprises. This event is also really effective at pushing out-of-the-box thinking – let’s face it, success as a high level international spy these days requires a lot of right-brain ingenuity.

Large ballroom with tables for each team, plus additional open spaces for activities. 20 sq ft per participant is a good guide.
