Corporate retreats reimagined, the Explore Sideways Discovery Breaks service is for companies looking to get their employees out of the office (or house) and immersed in exclusive experiences.  A time to reconnect, build stronger relationships and explore new ideas. Whether you’re the brand team of a fashion company trying to figure out your annual campaigns or the management team of a travel agency looking to work on department budgets, we’ve got the perfect Discovery Breaks for you.

From multi-day adventures to a single day packed with activities, our Discovery Breaks take you to private locations and venues that’ll leave you wondering why you ever had an office in the first place.  All you need to do is rally up your team and Explore Sideways will take care of the rest.

Why Do You Need a Break?

To Brainstorm

Escape the distractions of city life to brainstorm areas of your business that you’d like to improve.  Sometimes all we need is a change of scenery (and possibly an incredible view) to get our brains ticking and ideas flowing. Take the time to let your minds wander and to develop exciting new ideas.

To Inspire

Let’s be honest, the day-to-day chug of work life can sometimes leave us a little weathered. And so often all it takes is a single video, podcast or pep-talk to reignite our passions and inspire us to keep on keeping on. This is a time to boost your team’s morale and leave them feeling inspired.

To Connect

Loving where you work often means enjoying the people you work with.  Discovery Breaks is the perfect opportunity to get to know your colleagues on a more personal level, even if it is just knowing how they like to drink their coffee.  Form new relationships, build on existing ones and show your appreciation for each other.   

To Create

Whether it’s putting together the perfect work flow with sticky notes or grabbing a brush and painting a picture, Walt Disney knew what he was talking about when he said “the way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing.”  Take the big ideas you’ve been thinking about for ages and get creating.

Please Note

In light of COVID-19, extreme measures have been put into place to ensure that every aspect of these experiences has undergone strict quality control measures. This includes testing all persons involved, sanitising all vehicles used, sanitising all venues and facilities, and implementing social distancing practices where necessary.

Nothing inspires people more than a speaker with an incredible story.  Whether it’s getting a speaker to join you and your team on your Discovery Break or dialling them in on a zoom call, sit back and be inspired.

Live Performances

We weren’t joking when we said these breaks are corporate retreats reimagined.  Enjoy an acoustic set while watching the sunset or get your toes tapping to one of your favourite artists. We’ll match you with the perfect performance.
