The knowledgeable and professional conference management team at Ste. Anne’s will assist any company in selecting an ideal team building program.
“It’s healthy for any organization to pause from time to time, to take stock of where it stands, to anticipate challenges and to rebuild the team,” says Jim Corcoran, Ste. Anne’s owner and general manager. “Those who’ve chosen Ste. Anne’s have discovered that our superior services, our first-class amenities and beautiful environment rejuvenate participants and make them feel like the special people they are.”
The culinary program is a proven team building exercise for companies of all kinds, an opportunity for participants to assign roles, to share in responsibilities, to collaborate and to create together. A Ste. Anne’s chef can lead a hands-on class in creating a delectable dinner or a specialized course in pastry making or working with chocolate.
There are several options for those who would rather be outdoors, including a range of group activities related to outdoor exploration. There are scavenger hunts, designed to build trust, confidence and fellowship; an amazing race, a challenge that involves team problem solving in an atmosphere of fun, fresh air and fitness; guided walks to re-energize the soul; and even a customized boot camp, as an adrenaline boost. Participants need not be experienced with horses to take part in the equine program, where communing with nature in an outdoor environment becomes a central activity.
A range of wellness workshops and classes provide an ideal way to relieve tension, to re-evaluate lifestyle habits or to teach techniques that improve posture and reduce body aches caused by repetitive activities.
Ste. Anne’s will include a complimentary team-building workshop for organizers who book a meeting this fall (September to November). Conference facilities and equipment are provided at no extra charge and free WiFi is available. Participants may enjoy access to all spa facilities, such as the Maison Santé fitness centre, saunas, outdoor pools and hot tubs.
The beautiful countryside, unique accommodations, delicious food and full roster of spa options serve as a source of inspiration and motivation for any gathering, at any time of year.
Some of Ste. Anne’s meeting spaces are conveniently located in spa cottages with onsite accommodations. Staff will collaborate with organizers to provide whatever is necessary to furnish meeting rooms; to provide meals during gatherings, if desired, or to customize programs.
For the past eight years, Ste. Anne’s has been voted “Canada’s Favourite Spa”. Located on more than 400 acres of scenic, rolling countryside, it offers guests more than 35 rejuvenating spa services, uniquely appointed accommodations, first-class amenities and, of course, delicious cuisine.
