In 2011, Oliver Sheer and business partner, Kingsley Seale, purchased Be Challenged. They saw that the majority of organisations were ignoring their most important resource- their people. The most critical investment for any business is in developing and maintaining its staff, with Be Challenged they now had the vehicle to change this – to bring people together and achieve meaningful results for their clients.
Oliver’s passion has always been team development. Completing a Bachelor of Arts in Sport and Exercise management, as well as a Bachelor of Business, at the University of Technology, Sydney, Oliver has both the understanding of what makes a business successful, as well as the psychology and dynamics within team-based environments.
During the years since acquiring Be Challenged and operating as its Managing Director, Oliver has focused on building the company into the ultimate resource for organisations that care about the morale, well-being and performance of their employees. He has developed Be Challenged’s range of programs and workshops to help people of all walks of life to reach their full potential. Be Challenged now offers dozens of different business simulations and team bonding exercises that range from the creative to the strategic, to encourage people to think differently, or simply work more cohesively with their peers. Oliver’s highly consultative approach to business drives him to make Be Challenged a genuine partner for each of its clients. He engages closely with each customer to really understand the needs of the business and its team dynamics, before working with the business leaders to develop a comprehensive strategy for enhancing their teams
