We'll Help You Build Amazing Company Culture

WHY CHOOSE DOVETAIL FOR YOUR NEXT RETREAT?

Experience You Can Trust: 
We’ve successfully designed and facilitated a wide range of training programs, workshops, retreats, and adventure travel experiences for companies and faculties around the world, including well-known brands like Rogers, RBC, Roche Pharmaceuticals, and more.

Experiential Programs (Without “Trust Falls”):
We know you’re looking for retreats that are interactive, engaging, powerful learning experiences, and fun! We believe the best learning experiences are hands-on, with minimal time spent sitting watching PowerPoints, but that doesn’t mean we want you “trust falling” off a building onto your peers! Our programs are interactive and fun without embarrassing or endangering your team.

Giving Back  To The Communities Where We Work:
We donate a percentage of our annual profits to deserving local charities. In Toronto and Ottawa we support our partners at StopGap Foundation, and occasionally facilitate StopGap charity ramp-building days for our clients.  All proceeds from our Culture Labx events go directly to Ladies Learning Code, a Canadian organization teaching coding to women and youth

All of our retreats include either a local charity volunteering session, or a donation to a local charity or nonprofit organization. We also hire locally whenever possible, and support small businesses.

Easy To Plan: 
Simply fill out our online planning form, and let us take it from there. You and your entire team can enjoy participating in the retreat, while we handle all of the details. 

Who Are We?

We're a small team of professional facilitators, event planners, and travel specialists who are passionate about helping you make your business more productive and profitable while creating a happy, engaged, and highly productive company culture.
