Outdoor Team Building: Rule The World at Great Fosters Hotel, Surrey

Spring is already on it’s way and many of our clients are planning their summer team building events. It’s a bit like booking a holiday – the thought of a long, hot day in the sun, with plenty of competitive fun, perhaps followed by a barbecue and some beers is enough to get you and your team through the last dark days of winter and keep everyone motivated in the months running up to the big day.

One of our most-loved outdoor team building events, Rule The World, is the perfect solution: with our giant board game, numerous and varied challenges, and a life-size ‘Jail’ to send the boss to, you’ll be kept entertained all day and see sides to your colleagues you never knew existed!sean4

Team Building at Cannizaro House, Wimbledon

Last week Event Managers Kate and Kye ran an epic Monte Carlo or Bust team build at the gorgeous Cannizaro House in Wimbledon.

Teams went head-to-head in the race to design, build and race life-sized concept cars, letting their imaginations run riot and their inner F1 drivers come to life!

Back to School: Team Building at Down Hall, Hertfordshire

Last week our clients were taken Back to School  for a fun-packed trip down memory lane at the beautiful Down Hall Hotel in Hertfordshire.  After sitting assembly with our terrifying Headmaster, the group was split into ‘classes’ and embarked on a school day with a difference – breaking plenty of rules and avoiding their teachers at all costs!

Much more fun than you remember from your former years, our Back to School event is all your favourite lessons with a twist – think decorating cakes whilst blindfolded for Home Economics, giant footballs for Sports Day and hilarious renditions of your favourite songs in Music.

Event Manager Steve Scott had this to say about the day:

“It’s always amazing how quickly the teams regress to schoolchildren and start acting up! Everyone spends the day in stitches, but not only is this event masses of fun, it strengthens bonds and encourages teamwork in a situation everyone can relate to.”

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.

Enigma Challenge Gold Medals

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!!!!
