The Guernica of the Team Building World!

An enquiry comes in from one of our top clients to provide a creative team build for a group of 150 in a meeting room in Northampton which accentuates the need for communication, dedication and the whole group working towards one spectacular achievement. “OK, leave it to us!” we said. This will require creating a painting so big only Picasso could rival it we thought!

Pablo Picasso was one of the World’s greatest painters, and one of the most influential artists of the 20th century, with some of his most famous works including Les Demoiselles d’Avignon and Guernica. But these paintings are not only an outstanding expression of his thoughts, they are on a particularly grand scale! Les Demoiselles d’Avignon, which portrays five nude prostitutes from a brothel in Barcelona, stands 244cm tall and 233cm wide and is considered to be central to the development of cubism and modern art.

What a Work of Art!

As Event Managers at CCC Events we’re trained to run a broad range of team building days from Treasure Hunts, Murder Mysteries  and outdoor activities, to Chocolate Workshops and cooking master classes. The events are fantastic fun and designed to get colleagues working well together, communicating and competing for a winning prize! However one of our most popular events, the Work of Art, not only gets the delegates to work wonderfully in their teams, but the whole group is working towards the same goal, to produce a huge and colourful multi canvass masterpiece!

Just 18 days to go until London 2012!

I can’t believe it’s only 18 days until our capital hosts the worlds most prestigious sporting event in history, the Olympics. We’ve had years of build up, planning, controversial ticket sales and what seems like an eternity of talk of the torch relay, and now it’s only two and half weeks away!

As an award winning team building company we are used to encouraging competitive activities and games, but this is particularly exciting for us as we were lucky enough to run a team building session for our very own Team GB Diving Team in Palma, Majorca last month! The team, their families, coaches and sponsors at British Gas were split into 5 teams and competed in one of our most popular activities, The Enigma Challenge.  The event is a fun and frantic race against the clock to complete as many challenges as possible with the kit provided, tailored especially for the diving team and their needs. This was not the first time we’ve run an event for the Olympics, but one in a series of team building days for LOCOG, The British Swimming team, and the British Paralympic Swimming team.

Gold Medals for Pete Waterfield and his team

This light hearted fight for the Gold Medals is not quite as intense as what we expect in the 2012 games, but at the end of the excitement there could only be one winning team and that was Pete Waterfield’s, just beating his diving partner Tom Daley by a few points!

British Swimming Sponsorship Manager, Jenny Forbes, said:

“The Enigma Challenge was a fantastic event, with a great mix of challenge types, which brought all members of the diving team together. We will definitely be working with CCC Events in the future!”

As far as team building events go, this has got to go down as one of my favourite events ever. I wasn’t lucky enough to get tickets to see the diving in London 2012, but I’ll definitely be following their progress on the TV. What an absolutely lovely bunch of people. An absolute pleasure to work with. Good luck to Team GB and lets hope we see some more Gold Medals in the weeks to come. GOOD LUCK TEAM GB!!!!
