Corporate Team Events UK

In the everyday of your business, your teams must be creative, resourceful and ready to react to rapidly changing circumstances. Each individual in your workforce has been chosen especially for their natural talents in each of these areas, yet continually nurturing and developing these individuals is often what defines your company, from your competitors. It’s no easy feat, but that’s not to say that training must be dull and devoid of fun. Let’s take a look at how creative events can be put together, and what you should think about.

Creative Events – Six Core Elements
Team building could and should be fun. Full stop. Yet in order to also be productive you need to ensure the following six elements are woven into the fabric of your team day.

  1. The event is fun for all: This first pointer can be a tricky one to get right if you’re organising the event yourself – after all, everyone’s idea of fun differs, and whist the CEO may think that old school trust exercises are a belly-rumbler, others may consider them a tear-jerker. Your see, ‘fun’ is nothing short of an art form in this industry of ours. If you are set on organising it yourself, undertake plenty of research – explore our fun team building activities as a great starting point.
  1. The activity is something completely new to everyone: Creative events must push your teams and challenge them in new ways to work out fresh ideas and solutions. So you can forget about going bowling, ice skating or anything else that’s been done before and has no focus on creativity.
  1. The task encourages communication and problem solving under pressure: Pressure is a critical ingredient to developing creative thinking, without it your team could just sit back with all the time in the world to test and trial bog-standard solutions to the challenge before them.
  1. The fun team building activity is seriously challenging, a little competitive and truly rewarding: Just because you’re aiming for ‘fun’, doesn’t mean that the task at hand shouldn’t challenge your teams and pit them against one another or against the clock. The best team building activities balance fun with adrenaline and pressure – so don’t be afraid to challenge your professionals with a task that tests them to their limit. In doing so, they’ll be forced to find new ways of working, or admit defeat to their co-worker counterparts.
  1. The challenge must involve everyone: A team is only truly a team when every last individual is involved – so make sure you consider skill sets and roles, and create a challenge that is interesting enough to engage and inspire an entire room, not just a select few motivated individuals.
  1. The team building activity must ensure that success is felt by everyone: Experiencing success is a great morale booster – and success, to some extent, should be experienced by every member of every team. While there may well be an ultimate team that wins the illustrious prize of top dog, smaller awards are helpful in recognising the unique strengths and differences between your staff and your teams.Creative events

Lets get those creative juices flowing with our ever so fun, ever so productive creative events

Fun Team Building Activities – Accolade Style

Those six mission-critical pointers above may have you thinking that fun team building activities that also nurture creativity are tough to get right. We get it. We’ve been in this business for two decades, and over those years we’ve sought to perfect this corner of the company events market. Here’s the fruits of our labour…

Sculpture WorkshopThis event is ALL about creativity, as your team is challenged to create a totally unique sculpture that fulfils our brief. The Sculpture Workshop can even be entwined with your company’s vision, values, goals or target market.

FunopolyFrom destination to destination, donning police hats to jail bird jumpers, Funopoly encourages your team to be as creative as possible for photo ops around the local area – for which they’ll receive points (and what do points make?!).

Team ApprenticeEver watched the latest hapless intake of apprentices on TV and thought that you could do better? Now you can hand your teams this chance with the Team Apprentice day – an event that’s totally customisable. You could even create viable business ideas that are ready to be taken straight back to the boardroom come Monday morning. The real Sir Alan Sugar hasn’t got anything on our Alan Sugar Rush.

Company Bake Off!Mary Berry? Pah! Who needs her when you’ve got teams who are encouraged to channel their creativity into baked creations? This event is perhaps the least pressurised of our line-up, yet it’s no less demanding when it comes to your team having to brainstorm, develop and design their very own cake.

At Accolade Events, we know just what it takes to get your teams thinking laterally and helping them pool their creative input. From Play Dough to Big Pictures, we bond teams and boost productivity. Let’s get those creative juices flowing, let’s talk about organising your creative event.

team building activities for executives

Let’s talk team building, shall we?

First and foremost, when team building comes into the equation, you’d be forgiven for automatically assuming that we’re arranging activities for your lower management and workers. After all, such corporate days are often organised by management and infused with the company ethos, with the aim of helping employees work well together.

Sounds brilliant, doesn’t it. And it is. Accolade Corporate Events have a proven track record of helping businesses bring their teams together. This gives staff morale a boost, as well as their productivity. Everyone’s a winner.

A not-so-new take on team building

But let’s apply that to team building activities for executives. This isn’t a new concept, but chances are it may be new to your firm. Over the last five years, its crept back into popularity, with organisations realising just how much can be gained from team building activities for executives.

Consider the benefits when team building events are offered to workers. Your results will tell you that this intervention is a worthwhile investment.

Now, encourage your execs to undertake similar training. It is oh-so-important that leaders within your company unite in their vision for progression. To do so, they need to have each other’s backs. They need to know who to turn to, and when. They need to know who excels in which areas. Your management needs to be a strong, robust, force that helps your enterprise achieve objectives and smash through targets.

The first step to making this a reality is Accolade team building activities for executives.

Office team building activities

Unless they’re hugely behind with the times, every organisation knows that team cohesion is integral to every office environment. After all, employees are the vital cogs in the big corporate machine. When they work together, with each other, and they do it well, that is when businesses achieve their full potential. Office team building activities can help make that happen. But how? Let’s look below or if you’d prefer to seize the moment and talk to one of our events experts then why not pick up the phone and call us on 0800 083 1172, we’d love the chance to talk to you and tell you how we can help your company; you can even get in touch by filling in our ever so quick contact form and we’ll call you at a time to suit you best.

How office team building activities benefit your business

Fun corporate event ideas

Sure, it’s great to get everyone together and break the ice a little bit. But that’s not all that office team building activities have to offer. Effective events can do much, much more for your business.

Before we look at events that can help your company reach its full corporate events potential, let’s break the business benefits right down. Don’t tell mama, but here’s the Accolade family recipe for the ‘Ultimate Workforce’.

Open a can of communication – Away from the rigid office routine, delegates are encouraged to talk to team members they perhaps wouldn’t normally speak with. Working through tasks together insists upon staff developing effective communication methods.

Sieve through some fine-tuned skills – At Accolade, no two team building activities need be the same. Your team will master skills relevant to their role within your organisation.

Add a few lbs of productivity – One of the main aims of team building is for delegates to learn how to work together. With communication enhanced and skills smashed too, productivity can only soar.

Mix in a good measure of motivation – It’s all systems go. Staff feel comfortable communicating with one another and completing the task in hand. Confident, valued employees, with clear direction, naturally experience a boost in motivation.

Bake until team roles and relationships are perfectly golden

Bake Off

Transferrable team processes. Check! With roles established, these now tried and tested working methods will be adapted and adopted in the office.

Quick Team Building Activities

Boomwhackers are a great idea if you are really tight for time but want to invigorate your team and leave them in a heightened state of listening.Boomwhackers are a small hollow tube, they are different lengths and different colours and each one produces a different note that when you layer them on top of each other, can create an incredible harmonious sound.

Quick team building activities ideas

Our expert facilitator can build your group and deliver a meaningful quick session in as little as 10 minutes and for as long as 20 minutes and with no need for your group to even leave their seats, this is a perfect quick activity idea.

Qucik teambuilding activities

Against the Clock is a fun team focused interactive event. We ask your teams to gamble with their time and complete up to 100 different fun challenges. Challenges are always fun and test dexterity, communication and thinking outside of the box. There are problem solving challenges, technical challenges and sensory dilemmas, they include quick fire lego building, infuriating sailor knot tying and of course a domino rally.

Quick teambuilding activities ideas

Of course teams may believe that some challenges are easier than others and so they have the opportunity to put their money where their mouths are and place a bet and gamble with their points. Fantastic ideas which will definitely see a huge surge of energy and can be hosted in as little as one hour and up to four hours.

Company fortunes

Gameshows are perfect for a little conference interaction and we’ve got many different ideas to suit all types of groups. Choose between Team Millionaire, Company Fortunes and Million Point Drop to name but a few.

Company Game Shows

Our gameshows can last as little as 45 minutes and up to 90 minutes. Your delegates won’t even have to leave their seats and we include everyone at the same time, everyone plays here, ensuring that all your delegates are engaged.

Quick team building activities ideas that help to improve communication

084

Building communication is a popular objective for our clients. Sometimes your conference will be the only time you have everybody under one roof and you need to break the ice and build communication as quickly as possible, relaxing, inspiring and building the sense of your company as one big team.

Harmonica

There are many ways we can easily achieve this, we’ve got some great ideas; Drumming will build your group like you didn’t think possible.

Drumming corporate event

Another popular team building event idea to build communication is Team Apprentice.

The Apprentice: A forerunner to Fisticuffs?

Sparks were certainly flying on the Apprentice last night – and it wasn’t anything to do with the fire that Lord Sugar believes market trader Daniel has in his belly.

Fall out number one

It all came to a head between Summit project leader James and cool Bianca when the male motor mouth accused her of being “too big for her boots.” We’d already received an inkling of what was to come when, in an aside to camera, he announced that he would “soon put her in her place.” During their argument James reminded Bianca he was project leader and refused to listen to anything she had to say. So she talked over him. Children, children…

030

Fall out number two

The other big fall-out last night – and one we can’t wait to see come to a head in a forthcoming episode – is between Daniel and suave Aussie Mark. Daniel took a few deriding swipes at Mark’s constant football analogies while back at the team house Mark had a good old bitch about Daniel in his absence. Don’t know about you but we think there’s just something too smooth and goody two shoes about Mark. Could he be a secret sociopath?

Party’s over for Pamela

The Queen Bitch of last night’s episode though was Pamela – who was rightly fired. She constantly grumbled about half her team’s failures to sell and managed to ostracise them completely. Actually we were pretty surprised they did manage to offload the board game to anyone considering the crap product they were landed with. This was one, incidentally, that Pamela had given the go-ahead for.  Not only that but she refused to accept an iota of blame for its failure – despite being the one making all the executive decisions. And boy were those decisions wrong.

In our opinion her biggest mistake was completely dissing the market research. She didn’t seem to bat an eyelid when the adult male board gamers announced Tenacity’s dating game was sexist, boring and even offensive to women. One participant said that were it to be brought out at a party he’d go home! Red flag anyone?

Lord Sugar needs sweetening

But the best fun was to be found in the board room. Lord Sugar Lump is getting tough and taking no prisoners. Daniel was told he was a “fantasist” and a “loose cannon.” For Mark “the jury was out” on his abilities to lead a team and poor Lauren was told in no uncertain terms that if she doesn’t stop “playing the game” then there wouldn’t be a game for her to play anymore. Lauren’s tension in the boardroom was almost audible while Daniel’s left ear twitched of its own accord on a few occasions.

Surprisingly, even though he was named “a dictator” by Bianca, James came off well last night, leading Summit to a superb victory. Lord Sugar only had to tell him off once for gabbing but he did so beautifully, announcing that it was a shame James hadn’t chosen Charades as his game for then no-one would have to listen to him.
