Creative team building

Turn your vision into a masterpiece


Collaborative Art® creative team building aligns your team around a shared vision as a seemingly impossible artistic challenge. The shared experience clarifies the company mission, vision and values and strengthens employee buy-in, especially amidst change and transitions.


What happens at a Collaborative Art® creative team-building workshop?


The creative team-building experience starts with a pre-defined question in collaboration with the client. The teams will have a limited time to answer the question by creating a masterpiece in a famous artist’s style!


The challenge often seems insurmountable initially, but through collaboration, visual communication and storytelling, doubt turns into pride, and team insights emerge. 


While a fun and unforgettable process, the creative team-building experience brings your business objectives to life. In addition, our activities go beyond the canvas, turning introspective exploration into tangible works of art that can be hung on the office walls as long-lasting visual reminders

"Amazing results"


“Steph did an excellent job leading a group of about 50 senior people from our pharmaceutical company in a brilliant exercise to foster the concept of working together. Amazing results after everything was done. She made it look and feel much easier than it was, witty and challenging.”

Paulo Jorge Monteiro, Project Director, Janssen Europe

"Unlike any other team building"


“Collaborative Art® is unlike other team building - it takes people to a different space in expressing opportunities and challenges and how they can be overcome. It also helps visualise the journey to a stronger and more collaborative future. It is also fantastic fun, and when you hear the cheers ring out when people finish their painting 'masterpieces', there is a sense of pure satisfaction of having created something quite extraordinary together.”


Ruth Farrell, Global Marketing, Brand & Communications Leader, Eastman

“'I managed to do that!'...'Wow, I can't believe what I have done’, and ‘Finally, I am good at art’ are the comments we heard at the end of the day. What a great way to spend the day outside work with your colleagues! You learn about yourself, your colleagues and discover one of your hidden talents. Never say ‘I can't do that’ with Collaborative Art®!”

Cultivating creative collaboration

“Thank you very much, Steph, for sharing your personal experience and unique perspective on how organisations can cultivate creative collaboration in the workplace. We all enjoyed your most interesting, stimulating and thought-provoking talk!”

Michal Paserman, MBA & MML Programs Director,  Webster University

Creativity and resilience

“Steph helped us kick-start our off-site with a thought-provoking speech on Creative Courage. We wanted the teams to gain tips on becoming more resilient and thinking out of the box. Steph did so perfectly by sharing her experience and life stories with us. The teams liked that she didn't hide her failures - her authenticity made her more relatable. Overall, the intervention was very impactful, and everyone left that day with a list of actions they would do to be more creative and courageous. I recommend Steph to any team/organisation looking to bring creativity into their day-to-day job.”

Thomas Sengmany, Digital Strategy, Vacheron Constantin

Outstanding facilitation

“Steph is simply an outstanding facilitator. She has worked on client projects as a partner and directly with our teams. She models the best in facilitation: holding the process lightly yet with clarity and discipline, encouraging participation yet enabling high-quality output, and projecting self-confidence yet making the group the hero. I cannot recommend her or her product highly enough.” 

Will Hogg, Managing Director, Kinetic Consulting
