Team building

“The most powerful and effective team building event in the world!”

You’ve tried building rafts, Pizza nights and abseiling! Now its time to do something that really works and creates long lasting change!


Our team building event is much more than just a firewalk it’s a transformational event that uses multiple tools and tasks to bond people at a deeper level subconsciously.



Traditional team building doesn’t work!

One of the biggest challenges companies of any size face is getting their people to work together for the greater good of all concerned. This is because instead of everyone supporting each other as one entity and working for the good of all, companies often end up with a lot of individuals whose sole concern is self-interest often to the detriment of everyone else including themselves!

I firmly believe that getting everyone outside to build a giant jigsaw puzzle simply doesn’t work and doesn’t create long term change.

But what if there was a way to get your team to bond at a deeper level and as direct consequence their relationships with their colleagues were transformed and remained that way. Because they can!

People bond as a direct result of profound shared experiences which connect them at a much deeper level. This all happens subconsciously. In the extreme its tragedy that brings us together. Which is why survivors of plane crashes or similar events have annual reunions and often keep in contact for the rest of their lives.

Why would this happen? It’s because they crave and seek the deep connection that the event created within them.

What I have created as a result of 25 years of research achieves a similar result as it bonds people at a significantly deeper level, and when we bond at a deeper level we connect with people, and when we connect we start to be more considerate towards others and are much more likely to enter a mutually supportive relationship with our colleagues as we become personally invested in them.  .

How do we do this?

We use techniques, tools and challenges that most people never consider or even conceive of doing.

These are tools that require people to really get behind their colleagues as they encourage them to achieve what they believe to be impossible! Consequently, profound and long-lasting change takes place when they achieve what they thought was impossible or attach a high degree of difficulty to and are unlikely to have ever considered attempting.

I continually witness these kinds of changes take place as I watch people bond at a significantly deeper level as they begin to open up to people who they thought they knew but knew very little if anything about. It’s during these times that the entire dynamic between the group changes as a subconscious connection is made amidst the realisation that they are all in this together.

Consequently, everything gets better because everyone begins to work towards a common goal for the betterment of themselves, the group and the company.

This is how we build unstoppable companies, because as my wife always says, “You can only be as good as the people that work for you”

The entire experience is woven together by a powerful talk which provides insights, examples and strategies that will live on within the hearts and minds of your people long after the fires have gone out and the last arrow has been broken!

We use the following exercises as metaphors for breaking through the unseen barriers that hold us back and prevent meaningful connections being made.

These are extremely powerful metaphors for breaking through and with great breakthroughs comes great change.

But don’t take our word for it. Listen to what Rai Garcia Singh and Maureen McCabe had to say about their experience on BBC Radio.

The tools and tasks

The Fire Walk

This is our ultimate tool “The Fire walk” most people have heard of it, most have never done it, and even fewer believe that they can!

It’s all very safe and conducted by a professional firewalk instructor who has taken over 2700 people safely across the coals.

The firewalk creates dramatic changes within them as it alters their perception and beliefs about challenges.

Why? Because they have just shattered one of their most deeply held beliefs.

“Don’t touch the fire or you will get burned” When this belief was instilled within you it was normally followed by a smack or a clip around the ear or was that just me!

But when they walk across the fire and don’t get burned they subconsciously begin to ask the question “What else can I do that I didn’t believe was possible” which leads to increased performance in all areas of life and has a powerful effect on their performance in the work place.

The changes we see in people is nothing short of dramatic as they immediately begin to question what else they can do. It’s always a great deal more than they have achieved up until that point and the impact this has on them permeates all areas of their life. Their ability at work increases and their effectiveness in their own life also improves. Both are equally important as problems at home always affect the workplace environment and vice versa.

As a team we build the fires, tend them and then ultimately prepare them so that your team can walk across them, it takes diligence and care to build a safe fire walk and this is the very first step in getting your team to act for the benefit of the others.

Then they walk on the fire, we always try to do this in the evening for dramatic effect. There is something quite profound and bonding about fires, especially when you are going to walk on one!

The Glass Walk

It is exactly as it sounds, we walk on glass, it’s not a trick, it’s not sugar glass (Is there even such a thing?), it’s a mixture of spirit and wine bottles and its very real!

The exercise requires focus and teaches the value and the importance of having the ability to focus on one thing and the feeling of elation when that “one thing” is achieved.

When people do this, they do it with a great deal of trepidation and a lot of support from the group.

While this is taking place, they get to understand the importance of support and of supporting others. It’s not a conscious realisation, which is why the benefits of this type of training are long lasting, THEY have the realisations and THEY make the changes within. Motivation that is forced upon you is always short lived and normally doesn’t survive the night. But this is very different and the underlying benefits and change last because its inspiration and motivation from within.

Arrow Breaking

Have you ever broken an arrow with you neck? We do it every day! This is another very powerful exercise because again it’s something that we believe we cannot do at a conscious level and every time we do something that we previously thought we couldn’t do we become more capable and open to new challenges. The arrow break is the ultimate metaphor for breaking through.

Board Breaking

We have all seen Bruce Lee or Karate experts break through wooden boards and marveled while we watched them and visualised doing it ourselves. Now is the time when you get to do it for real. A real breakthrough experience!

The trick is to be able to look beyond the wooden board. The talk around the board break is all about looking beyond the challenge and the solution that’s always on the other side of the obstacle.

It’s not the challenge that creates the problems it’s the inability to think beyond the challenge that causes companies and individuals to remain stuck as they ruminate instead of looking beyond the obstacle in the direction of the solution which is always just on the other side of faulty thinking!


This is a very different kind of company event, it’s an event that creates massive change within individuals and companies and will be talked about for years to come.

As we go through these exercises, I deliver a seminar as we go through the various processes. I teach people how to utilise their untapped potential and the most powerful ways to utilise the mind (After all you never received a minute’s tuition on this all-important subject at school)

Consequently, everyone will become aware of the unforeseen forces that hold us all back in the form of limiting beliefs and we will systematically identify and dissolve them and then create empowering new beliefs that will allow us to release our untapped potential.


Went firewalking tonight and saw it as the catwalk to the beginning of the end of my lack of belief in myself. I feel amazing and it was an amazing talk. Thanks mark!

Enjoyed every minute, totally relished that moment, created a sensational memory. I’ll be sure never to forget this. Thanks Mark Baker for such a unique, exhilarating experience. Highly recommended.


We have bought in outside help on several occasions to help us try and build a cohesive and connected team without any luck whatsoever. When you came to us, we were extremely skeptical as you were aware. However. You proved to be one of those rare companies that under promises and over delivers to the extreme. The bond you created with our teams can still be felt and experienced today. It was simply amazing. Thank you.

Successfully completed the fire walk and thankfully no blisters, thank you Mark Baker for a truly inspirational event and such an exhilarating experience

Maureen McCabe


Fantastic evening with some amazing people…. I did the walk 3 times….everyone had a reason for doing this…and some profound reasons to let go of the past bring on the future….let go of those you don’t need and let in those that will be good for you. The future is bright…. changes are coming for everyone that did this today…

Rai García Singh

I thoroughly enjoyed Mark’s talk, arrow breaking and the firewalk at his event. After an incredible journey of self-discovery, massive action and a huge change in beliefs he has managed to achieve some amazing feats! His passion for authentic transformation in mindset regarding altering beliefs we pick up that aren’t helpful is infectious. it was clear the event had a very positive impact on all people’s lives that night including me. An engaging, inspiring and fun event.,

My first fire walk was so amazing and exhilarating I made two passes over the coals on the night. For me this was the perfect event for moving forwards in life and a great metaphor for tackling life’s challenges. Thank you, Mark Baker you have truly inspired me, in ways I would never have imagined. I am who I was and so much more. I would highly recommend this event.



I drove back last night shouting to myself I did it then had Meatloaf’s new CD full on in car. When I got back changed the lounge around. Today working out retirement and sending book I’ve written to good friend to edit and looking at things I can do either as volunteer or just to supplement income until my books get published. Best part is something I didn’t mention when I broke that arrow it removed the feelings; I had had from my father’s relationship with me and my ex-husbands infidelity so now I can move forward without mistrust. One more amazing fact my 5-year granddaughter told her mummy she was so proud of Meme


That means a lot to me thanks your very inspiring and have experienced hard times and can relate and understand , that’s why I could talk to you as I knew you had been through it also , you have helped me in such a great way , I was so severely depressed and anxiety ridden , I couldn’t cope , even to get the energy to cone to the event was a big thing but I am so glad I did , I probably will be messaging you if needed , and I will do what I can on my side to spread the word , it was a pleasure , I now know anything is possible, and that is down to you , speak soon ,

I just want to say thank you so much for everything yesterday and for making me say yes, I will do it…

really enjoyed the talk special the part off when you crossed your arms and you said, “well that never happens to me” (so saw my sceptical side being played in front of me)

I’m not sure if it was the cold or my emotions, but I was shaking so much by being flooded with so much information and off course your great passion of what you have learned over the years.

I knew I could do the fire walking but the arrow I wasn’t prepared for and I can say it was like breaking free … I had time out shortly after and I felt so light , and just now I took a look at myself and my ways over the last few years and never realised how bitter I have been and this is been going on for so long… now I know that I need to dedicate myself on learning ways of not being bitter to myself I know this was something I learned and thank to you I know that I can unlearn it.



For anybody who wants to experience the feeling of freedom and support and love then go and see Mark Baker. We all find our own way in life and some people help and others hinder. Once you take control you know you are really living. Mark can help you if you need a nudge in the right direction. That first step is the best step to a brighter and happier future, I know, because it’s true.
