TeamBonding first introduced School for Spies 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.
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.
In terms of getting a diverse group of people to interact, I can’t think of anything better. The staff were excellent. They were helpful, witty and inclusive. I am happy to wholeheartedly recommend this activity to any other group within the firm thinking about a team building exercise. I’d be happy to speak to anyone first hand with my recommendation and endorsement.J.G – Goldman Sachs, New York City
We were absolutely delighted with the School for Spies program. It exceeded all our expectations. Without exception, everyone in attendance participated. No one felt awkward or embarrassed. No one felt silly and singled out.J.G – Goldman Sachs, New York City
It was fabulous. The team building training was a great success. It got folks to loosen up. They have been spreading the word around the association about your group. Thank you so much, it was just what the doctor ordered.J. C. – National Education Association
We chose this for our team building event, and it was a HUGE success! Everyone enjoyed themselves tremendously! We have already recommended you to our other regions in the Southeast. Rob and his team were excellent facilitators keeping the energy level fast paced and high.A.C. – Merck & Co.
