Who We Are


Team Building & Stress Recovery Training

We specialize in team building and stress management events incorporating the climbing wall and dozens of additional experiential learning activities. The Stress Recovery Effect events are discussion-based programs for groups and individuals. The print and video resources will help you transform stress into success.
Team building events are customized for each client. We accommodate small or large corporate groups, clubs or couples who want to have fun while learning to work as a team. Communication skills personality differences, dealing with conflict and difficult people, and establishing trust of some of the most popular themes we offer. Of course, building camaraderie is assured during these fun, insightful programs.
Our Team


In 1988 Tom Dempsey and Nick Hall combined their respective expertise in business and science, creating highly successful team building and stress-management programs for government agencies, corporations, and youth groups. Now, Mobile Team Events is bringing these programs to you.

Shared Aha!

Nick and Tom met at Saddlebrook following Nick's keynote speech at a convention in 1996. After a relaxed four-hour discussion sealed with nothing but a handshake, they formed a partnership. They created workshops and team-building exercises modeled upon the human brain. Their efforts successfully merged mind-body research with the corporate world.
It was a simple business plan; Tom provided the resources while Nick designed the programs. They split the costs and the profits which proved to be a highly successful business model that lasted for 26 years until Saddlebrook was sold in 2022. That's when they hatched plans to continue the successful business they had created at Saddlebrook by taking the programs on the road. They also expanded the curriculum to include children and young adults. Another handshake and Mobile Team Events was born.
Tom Dempsey and Nick Hall in 2018 as Nick set out for the second of four solo unassisted End Polio Now rides. This trip took him from Tampa, FL to Toronto, Canada.

General Questions

  • Can anyone climb?
    Climbing and our other team building activities are great for the young and the young-at-heart. As long as you weigh at least 45 pounds and no more than 250 pounds you are good to go. You must also be free of any musculoskeletal injuries and other conditions that might be aggravated while climbing.
  • Is the mobile climbing wall safe?
    Absolutely. Our Extreme Engineering designed climbing wall incorporates one of the safest automated belay systems in the world. It features a fully redundant hydraulic unit requiring no power to operate along with an independent pneumatic system which maintains proper cable tension. The belay system, triple lock carbon steel climbing carabiners, and cables are inspected before each event. All equipment meets or exceeds the climbing and safety standards of all pertinent agencies (ANSI, ASTM, OSHA etc.). Our staff are fully trained in the safe operation and supervision of the mobile climbing wall.
  • Are you insured?
    We're insured by Lloyds of London--one of the most trusted and experienced insurance companies in the world for liability and medical coverage.
  • How much?
    Probably less than you expect or will find elsewhere. We offer hourly and daily rates which vary depending upon how the wall is used--for climbing or display. We can also offer it at no cost to host organizations and charge the climbers. We also offer discounts for nonprofits. Contact us for details. Complete the request below to plan your outdoor escape.
  • How much space is needed?
    Not much. The Mobile Team Events 4-person climbing wall is 29 feet 10 inches high- top to bottom. When raised, the operational footprint is 16 by 8 feet allowing the wall to set-up on the average homeowner's driveway. It can even be set up indoors with sufficient access and height clearance.
