As well as the business benefits that can be gained from the event it will give your employees the chance to relax away from the office and explore a new city or enjoy a picturesque background
A range of our top ideas for team building events around the UK include...
Dragon Boat racing is a wonderfully colourful and exciting way of getting staff out of the office, in a highly competitive, adrenalin pumping team activity.
Perfect for competitors for those fast and furious bursts of energy over short distances, but also fantastic for the spectators.
Before getting into their dragon boat for the first time, participants are encouraged to contribute to an open discussion on the most effective way to work as a team and paddle their boat as fast as possible.
After some practice on the water, team members are asked to appraise each other constructively in order to improve communication, teamwork and build on each person’s individual strengths - these are all important techniques that can be applied directly back in the work place.
The UK has been taken over by a baking craze, mainly due to one of the country's most popular TV shows.
