Much has been written about Team Building in all its various guises and forms.  Here is a small and unique selection of articles, websites and general information written about Team Builds.  It is not specifically orientated towards Ice Team Building, but team building in General.  The overall and overwhelming evidence is that Team Builds - if conducted correctly, not only benefit the employee, colleague or participant but also the company in the Short, medium and long term.

Ice Team Building is unique.  It combines all and in fact,  more aspects than a great number of 'traditional' Team Build activities.

The list and links below regarding Team Building Articles is not exhaustive nor complete - but is a sample for any Organizer, HR, MD or Manager to read-up on how to conduct a Team Build as well as the benefits and the affective outcome a Team Build can achieve.
