Players in remote teams compete in the Online Olympics across a multitude of new disciplines.
Each high-energy, fun discipline is designed to push players to step up and practice remote-working skills. Communication and collaboration are key, but can teams adapt to the complexities of a virtual working environment and achieve results?
This energizing team activity keeps players hooked from the Opening Ceremony till the final points on the scoreboard are tallied.
Mission: To be the winning remote team of the virtual Online Olympics.
