Fairbridge holds regional seminars usually every two - three years and a National Seminar which all employees attend over a few days in alternate years. At these events activities such as sports tournaments, dance, quizzes, team building, encouraging employees to mix with others from different teams and job functions. Central Office and Teams also hold their own team away days, for which the focus is fun and team bonding. An example of a recent team away day included a walking tour of the new Olympic site followed by boules in the park and a pub quiz written by Fairbridge team members.
