Team Building doesn’t have to involve paintball and go karting! Sure these fun or recreational activities have a place but they just don’t provide the kind of results that truly drive your team forward and offer valuable return on investment (ROI).

TBi, founded by Dr. Chris Heunis and Robbie Verkuyl, focuses on getting results through a use of methodology that has been researched at doctoral level and is guaranteed to put your team in the right mindset to carry your organisation forward. But don’t worry, there’s still a lot of fun to be had!

Utilising the AEL methodology (Adventurerelated Experiential Learning) and drawing from the Herrmann Brain Dominance Instrument, TBi has formulated a set of programmes that promote team effectiveness, team alignment, leadership development as well as facilitating strategy sessions.


Conducted at their stunning premises in both Pretoria and Oudtshoorn, TBi strives to optimise the way your team faces challenges while creating a calm and open environment that is conducive to learning and change.

Take a quick, one minute Team Effectiveness assessment to translate your perception of your team’s behaviour into actionable steps to increase the value you add by having Dr. Chris reply personally, drawing from his years of training and experience. This tool is free and a fantastic way to analyse the current state of your team’s functioning which will undoubtedly give you insight into the challenges they may face.

Team Building and Business Management Consultant

TBi offer team building programmes but also act as a business management consultant.

Conducted by CEO and co-founder of TBi, Dr. Chris Heunis and drawing from over 25 years of networking and academic research, TBi’s mentorship programme separates itself from standard ‘coaching’ sessions which are often conducted by people who merely study a short coaching diploma without the necessary experience.
