“NexLevel Challenge brought a team of energetic and excited professional facilitators to our conference, offering a half day of engaging exercises designed specifically for team building.  NexLevel definitely delivered what they had promised, providing our group with a creative atmosphere in which we were able to learn to better work as a team and to grow as individuals. The activities were challenging yet fun, and the lessons learned by completing them was truly eye opening, overall it was an awesome experience.”

Our Values Drive our Business


Humans are wired to connect with others. Connection allows people to be happy, healthy and creative. Nurturing connection with our clients and each other is important to us.


As children, learning always revolves around play and it’s no coincidence that kids are creative, great problem solvers and get along! Amazing things happen when you stop to laugh.


For us, Excellence means doing your best, being your best and helping others be their best. Imagine your business success when everyone on your team is always striving for excellence!

Your Team Needs a Cheerleader

We believe, given the right tools and proper support, teams can achieve the impossible. We know your team is capable of great things and we are committed to cheering you on and doing everything we can to propel them to excellence.
