It was a great way to start the morning. Definitely a favourite of any group activity I have been involved in.

'WE HAD A GREAT TIME' is all we're hearing around the office. THANK YOU for a great day out of the office!

60 seconds... and your time starts now!

American Outback's Minute To Win It features teams of 8-10 participants using their brains and brawn in head-to-head competition of seemingly simple 60 second challenges. Teams must work together to decide the best strategy for acquiring the highest score in the allotted time frame and assign responsibilities based on personal proficiencies and existing skills.

Some challenges may feature one, two or all team members. Some challenges look easy but can prove to be more challenging than anticipated! True team work, strong communication and strategy all come into play as you tackle these fast-paced tests of skill. At the end of the event the scores will be tallied and the top team(s) will be rewarded during the recognition ceremony.

Event Overview & Features

The key themes this event focuses on are resource management, communication and team interaction all during a fun and fast-paced morale building experience. Minute To Win It will test your ability to think on your feet and find creative ways to beat the clock and the competition. We come to you and modify the program to your venue or location requirements. This program requires low to moderate amounts of physical activity, exuberantly cheering on your team however, is mandatory.
