Mike O'Meara of Dragon Boat Team Builders

Each event is custom tailored to meet the needs of our clients, considerations are made regarding group size, participants’ age, gender, and ability. Our dragonboating events can be as brief as an hour or two, or span multiple days.

We will help organize participants into compatible, cohesive groups and prepare them with instruction, strategies and techniques to motivate them to reach their potential. The sport of dragon boating relies on many of the same principals found in successful businesses: leadership, incentive, teamwork, communication, and goal setting.

We will help identify the personnel necessary to fill key positions while instilling a sense of team unity and bonding. As the program progresses, participants witness incremental improvement in their coordination and synchronization, ultimately translating to a positive feeling that comes as a result of working together as a team..
