Who we are

MOTIVA EVENTS, LLC specializes in hosting the highest quality team building and Corporate Incentive events on the market. Founded by experts in the international team building industry whose experience was gathered through years of hosting events across Europe and the USA, MOTIVA was established with the goal of sharing this know-how with a new set of clients. After relocating to the Triangle area, Kiku Vives hand-selected a vibrant team that excels in many arenas with all types of clientele and lends a local pulse to his international background. Together they compiled an attractive catalogue of over 125 proven and exciting team building programs to choose from.

Francesc (Kiku) Vives:


Kiku finished his degree in Business Management in Tarragona after studying at Clemson University and Högskolan Dalarna (Sweden), and his entrepreneurial spirit led him to start his own company revolving around his passion, the organization of sporting events with a special focus on sailing. After organizing several successful corporate and social regattas, Kiku embarked on his biggest project yet, designing corporate incentive packages for companies attending The America’s Cup held in Valencia, Spain.

Soon after this amazing experience, Kiku joined the leading provider of team building events in Spain to work as a Production Manager and later on as the Operations Manager of the company. He has led and organized over 300 programs on 3 different continents for groups of all sizes and backgrounds. He has also proudly trained over 120 international interns in the field.

Jason H. Huggins:


Jason Huggins is an event professional with 14 years of event experience. With a background in professional journalism, art history, broadcast radio, voice-over acting in film and television, education, and event management – Jason was a natural fit for Motiva.

As a writer for Knight-Ridder, the New York Times, and Emmis Communications, voice-over acting in film and television, as well as in broadcast radio, he developed the rhythms and approaches to presenting information in a clear, concise, and entertaining way. As a teacher, he also also learned that it’s about paying attention to your audience and responding to their needs.

Jason knows what makes an event a total success, being able to “read” the crowds, picking the right tone and approach in every moment. His leadership and guidance helps our groups live great experiences during our events making them memorable and truly impacting.
