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.

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. Staff collaboration and trust across the team is invaluable. So, there’s your recipe. And during Accolade office team building activities, that’s when you’ll get your hands on all the ingredients.

OK, party time – this little list of corporate party ideas is less David Brent, way more Freddie Mercury. So dig in, rock out and tune up your workforce’s goodwill for the rest of the year.

Ideas for Corporate Party

Your Very Own Company FestivalForget Reading Festival, Boomtown and Bestival. As for Glasto? Huh, it’s not going to have anything on your very own company festival.

We’ll even create chill out zones, complete with a massage service on tap and performers that could include fire eaters, jugglers, acrobats and stilt walkers. The warm up acts can include harmonica players, acoustic guitarists and drummers, and of course no festival is complete without ponchos and props for selfie sessions.

Corporate party ideas

German Beer Festival PartyJust when you think you’ve seen it all and experienced every party theme, along comes your CEO in a blonde braided wig and a pair of Lederhosen. Now, just how many corporate party ideas incorporate thigh-slapping, foot-stomping Bavarian-style oompah bands? This is a miniature Deutschland set up wherever you wish – they’ll be inflatable pretzels, mountainous backdrops and plenty of beer (and no German beer party would seem complete without the odd life-sized cow). Prost! (that’s ‘cheers!’ in German – this glugging down beer isn’t just for fun you know – it’s a cultural learning experience!)

Perfect for? Standing up, sitting down, linking arms, laughing, then swiftly falling over – it’s the ice breaker of all ice breakers, a perfect way to boost communication and rapport between your workforce.

Corporate party ideas – dare to be different…Company Party Idea

Back to School Party ThemeRing a ding ding – it’s time to turn the clock back and step into a school not quite like the one you remember. Whether 50’s student or 90’s wild we’ll take your workers right back to their school days. Imagine a packed curriculum of fun, a science lab as a bar and a host for the evening who’s your resident Headmaster (fair to say he’s pretty old school). They’ll be coat pegs, benches and blackboards, flying saucers in the tuck shop, and an end of term party to end all end of terms. Choose from a school DJ, a live band, or mix it up with both.

Perfect for? This corporate party idea is ideal for those that like plenty of personality and a little nostalgia to their wild nights out. We can even combine your back to school party with our School Sports Day Team Building event (complete with a skipping race, good ol’ egg and spoon and soft javelin thowing).

Speakeasy Company Party

The Speakeasy PartyProhibition – a time when alcohol ran dry and the heavy hand of the law would weigh down on you if caught with so much as a shot of brandy. Serious stuff. But it also meant that parties of the infamous 1920’s were wholly more fabulous, raucous and downright wild. The Speakeasy Party celebrates the creativity behind the sneaky underground parties during the times of prohibition – with gin served up in retro tea cups, gangsters and casino games. We’ll welcome you into our clandestine club, complete with jazz band and 1920’s attire for your employees (think trilbys and feather headbands).

Perfect for? Lovers of swing, jazz and the casino, as well as those looking for a party that’s slick, sharp and truly entertaining (look out for the Bugsy Malone-style tommy gun showdown!).

Ideas for team building events

Brilliant. You’ve just landed on the page of the team building experts, that’s exactly what we do, we build teams.

Singing conference icebreaker

Before we look at nine ideas for team building events, let’s just tell you what type of clients we work with; we work with all sizes of business and all types of industries; from Blue Chip to small business, from Pharmaceutical to manufacturing. These are just some of the companies that have trusted Accolade Corporate Events with their team building activities Shell, Norgine, Lloyds Banking Group, BT, Pfizer, BJSS, British Gas, John Lewis, Abbott, BPLC, 3M, AkzoNobel and the list goes on…Now on to the team building ideas!

Ideas for teambuilding events

Team Animation: We love this fun team event. It’s got all of the right ingredients for team building, time management, communication, planning and creativity in bucket loads! Who would think that being handed packets of plasticine, paints and an iPad would create a wonderful team building experience and my goodness it delivers. Your teams script a short animation film together and then it’s time for some hands on fun as they make the stars of the show. Naturally, we have creative experts on hand for advice and technicians to ensure that everyone can produce a film to be proud of. Call 0800 083 1172 for more details.

Game of Knights

Game of Knights: Winter is here.If your team want to get anywhere near the iron throne then they are going to have to prove they have got what it takes with this fantastic Game of Knights come Medieval team building activity. Name your team and design a flag that’s fit for the throne, build a castle, knock a castle down, joust the other teams right off their bouncy ‘horse’, construct a life-size suit of armour and dance around the maypole, simple. A great team building event that can be hosted for up to 100 people.

Indoor Event

Drumming: Calling this event a ‘drumming workshop‘ never seems to do it justice. We can’t encapsulate the energy and the levels of heightened communication by its name. If you’ve got a specific message to communicate to your team, no matter how complex or how difficult you think it’ll be to convey in a team building event, then this is the event for you. Our expert drum facilitators don’t just teach drumming skills, the drumming is the icing and your company message is most certainly the cake.

Outdoor teambuilding

Total Wipeout: We couldn’t resist including this in our 10 ideas for team building events because it’s fun on a huge scale. Just the sight of our giant inflatables brings smiles to faces and yes, there are a few nervous looking faces but there are games that everyone can enjoy. This is definitely a great team event if you want to nurture team spirit, cheering your team members on and encouraging them is high on the list for Total Wipeout. Email us if you’d like more details.

Big Picture event

Big Picture: No one person can take care of everything, if you’re going to succeed then you need a collaborative effort and Big Picture team building activity illustrates that perfectly. Think of a picture, a Picasso and imagine it split into small squares, then imagine your group being split into teams and handed a square and paints and a section of the Picasso to recreate. Easy? Well no, not as easy as you may think because the lines have got to match up, the colour has got to match and so each team needs to communicate with the others. Perfect. Once all of the squares have been finished our team will busily construct the giant masterpiece ready for the grand reveal. You can take your art work back to the office with you and display it for all to see. What a great idea.

Right Track

Right Track: It’s amazing what you can build with just a bunch of cable ties and steel rods, which incidentally, is a great business analogy. Each team will be tasked with building a small section of a race track, think of a kind of manual Scalextric but this one twist, turns but this one can be as tall as you! Brilliant hands on team building.

9 different and fun ideas for team building events

Not all team building happens in the daytime, so what are the options for you in the evening? Here are just three ideas for team building events in the evening.

Team building events for large groups

Haka: Oh yes, this is definitely a huge and powerful team building activity. Never underestimate the power of this magnificent event that features genuine, real deal, Maori Haka masters who are so good that even Prince Harry chose them to open the Invictus Games with him, yes, they’re that good. Just like the drumming in the daytime, we are able to expertly blend into the Haka your company message in a strong, focused and successful way. Stunning.

Game Show Marathon

Gameshow Marathon: Bruce Forstyth, Chris Tarrent and Roy Walker eat your heart out because we take our favourite rounds from our favourite shows and put them all together to create the larger than life Gameshow Marathon. And if you’re looking for ideas of how to make it just that little more special, that little bit more memorable then why not have a celebrity like Roy Walker host your show…now that really is a great idea!

Auction team event

Antiques Teamshow: Is that really a Picasso or did we just paint that with our eyes closed? Is that plate a wedgewood or from Tesco’s? Would you know? Could you spot a fake? Well that’s exactly what we ask your teams to do tonight. Our auction house will be open for viewing and your teams get the chance to study the brochure and see the items on sale; then armed with their team money they have to decide what to bid for and what to bin. Will they make the right choices? Will they spin a profit or will they be totally broke!

Get ready to join the undisputed King of Pop and his deadly crew of zombie dancers! We take you on a team journey as you transition from a group of colleagues to a finely tuned, deathly looking crowd of zombies. Our expert choreographer isn’t just any old choreographer, he’s a talented choreographer who has worked on the stage show Michael Jackson’s Thriller Live – so you know you’re getting the real deal here. He takes even the most nervous of dancers and shows them effortlessly how to recreate the Thriller dance. Teaching them in a fun and relaxed way, your team will soon pick up the moves. Once they’ve got the zombie moves mastered, we’ll give them the zombie look with costumes and a horrifically looking makeover – yikes! Then it’s time for the grand finale, the lights dim and the music starts…cue the zombies! Why not film the whole routine and show it over dinner? You can give each of your team a copy of the film so they can show their families back home. This is a fantastic team building day – quite literally thrilling!

Crystal maze team building events

Crystal Maze: Start the fans please! Ahhh how we love to hear those iconic words from good old Richard O’Brien but there’s a new breed of Crystal Maze contestants ready and waiting now, as you company get ready to play this fantastic team game.

We bring the ovens, the ingredients and the know how for each team to be able to successfully create a range of cookies or petit fours, then all that’s needed is teamwork, communication and imagination to win the day!

Outdoor Team Building Events

Country Pursuits: This is always a firm favourite with organisers of corporate days out. It’s a great way to mix activities and networking and always works especially well. So what could you expect to do? Well, you could fine tune your geese herding skills for starters as our flat capped Shepherd shows you how to communicate with the sheep-dogs to get those unruly geese into their pen! You could try your sense of balance on the Segways, a gentle touch is definitely needed here as you have to navigate your way around a course, it’s not speeding, it’s accuracy here that counts. Then let off steam because no country pursuits day would be complete without welly throwing and hay throwing. Fabulous country fun and can be hosted for your team day out anywhere in the UK.

Spooks Team Building Event

Spooks: Add intrigue, challenges and the opportunity to see the sights of your location with our spy themed corporate day out. Houston we have a problem, well no actually, Houston doesn’t have the problem, the UK has the problem. MI4 is reaching out to your teams asking for their help in tracking down under cover assets who hold vital evidence that is of national importance. Naturally, these assets are suspicious and will only reveal their identity to the most elite and convincing of teams. Each asset can be located by following a set of clues and by speaking a special code phrase to them. Easy? No, not that easy we’re afraid. When they do reveal their identity, they will then have an MI4 challenge for your teams, it could be safe cracking, code breaking or legend learning – who knows, our assets are clever and forever changing the challenge. A thoroughly fun, team focused activity and ideal for corporate days out. If you’d like to find out more about Spooks or any of our other team days, then talk to the experts on 0800 083 1172 or fill out this really quick and simple contact form.

Team events have the most success if your staff feel like it’s a fun event, the fun takes over and the team building, increased communication and a healthy boost to morale is achieved without them even noticing. We’ve got a huge amount of fun corporate events, too many to name here or even have on our website, the best way to find which team event would be right for your company is to call us on 0800 083 1172 and we’ll talk you through some of the fun event ideas we have or why not send a quick message to us and we’ll get right back to you.

Movie Making Corporate Event
Movie Making: Action! The glamour of the film industry is heading your way as you’ll be asked to make a short but ever so cinematic film.

Teambuilding ideas

You’ve got a challenge on your hands – as the person charged with organising your corporate event, you know that the bar is set higher and higher every year. The pressure is on. This year? You need something up your sleeve – a genuinely unique corporate event that engages, inspires and motivates.

Unique corporate events: The top three countdown

Think you’ve seen it all? That you and your teams have been there and worn the corporate colour t-shirt? You may want to think again. Here we countdown three truly unique corporate events – for days that create sales staff worthy of primetime telly, marketing departments that rival Wallace and Gromit, and admin teams that transform into Bananarama under the disco lights.

Team Apprentice Boardroom
1. The Team Apprentice Event 12 – 250 people. 1 day. The search for the ultimate team building event is over. The Team Apprentice could well be the most entertaining corporate event, ever, and Karen and Claude ain’t got nothing on Lord Sugar-Rush’s ever-present (and pretty terrifying) twosome.

Your workforce will be pitted against one another over a series of challenges which could involve everything from the classic product creation task, to the branding challenge. We can even include an activity that’s directly related to your industry.
Perfect for? Team building, engagement, communication, time management, motivation and good ol’ fashioned fun (and if you choose The Apprentice for your unique corporate event, you’ll be in good company – this event remains our most popular to date). This event is suited to all staff, teams and experience levels, as it creates an entirely level playing field.

Group Size: 12 – 250

Unique Corporate Events
2. Animation Team Event Lights, camera, action! This unique corporate event demands a diverse set of skills from your teams, and together they’ll choose a theme for their directorial debut – this could be befitting of your company and its message, or it could be a free-for-all.

Each team member will shape their own plasticine creation (Wallace and Gromit can move the heck on over), and shoot their very own story. On hand will be a team of professional animators who will help, advise and guide your teams onto cinematic greatness (Steven Spielberg should get ready to loosen his grip on that Oscar).  At the end of the day we’ll have a mass replay, showcasing each team’s film, we’ll also send the films direct to your inbox (ideal for using on social media or featuring on your website).

Perfect for? A hands-on event for improving communication, team work, creative problem solving and original thinking – suitable for everyone from the most junior of teams to the C-Suite.

Ideas for Company Party

3. Back to the 80’s Corporate Party Leg warmers, Kylie and Jason, Crimped hair and homemade music mash-ups on your cherished Walkman. Show us someone who says the 80’s weren’t the greatest decade of all, and we’ll show you someone dodgier than Nick Cotton’s original leather jacket.

Our Back to the 80’s party is a unique corporate event for any team, from any industry, with a lust for all things retro. Think funky disco lights, dayglow and a line-up of arcade games. Imagine huge Rubik’s cube tables, the ultimate 1980’s soundtrack and a celeb lookalike of your choice (such as Adam Ant, Mr T or Madonna). This is less your usual underwhelming corporate ‘do and more Ferris Bueller’s Day Off on rollerblades.

Perfect for? Rewarding staff, celebrating performance and providing a relaxed environment in which staff can see each other as individuals, not just colleagues. Chink, chink – let the good times roll!

Not feeling the 1980’s retro vibe? Sometimes there’s no accounting for taste. But hey ho, here’s the complete countdown of all our corporate party themes – from the Wild West to Las Vegas.

Group Size: 30 – 5000

We can host our Thriller event for as little as 10 people right up to a whopping 2000 people and in as little as one hour and as long as four hours meaning that this is a really flexible event.

School Sports Day Energiser – Sometimes you just want to get your team out of the conference room and out into the fresh air and our School Sports Day is a perfect team building event for this! Heavily focused on retro school games your teams will find themselves competing in races like the egg and spoon, skipping races and bouncing along in the space hopper race.

Many events organisers also host our fun back to School themed party in the evening where complete with a school tuck shop, retro games and of course a school disco, this ties your day together perfectly. We can host our School Sports Day event for up to 250 people.

Movie making

Movie Making Energiser – A hugely creative and popular team energiser idea that creates lasting memories. Your teams have to script, shoot and edit their very own short film. Armed with an Ipad, boom microphone and some very interesting props, your teams really have to work together to decide on the direction of their film and then how to make sure theirs stands out.

This fantastic teambuilding event can be hosted either totally indoors or a mixture of indoors and outdoors, depending on your location and the time you have available to host the activity. We’ll have an Oscar style film screening as teams wait in eager anticipation to see if their film has won any Oscars!

We love giving  Company Treasure Hunt ideas and when one of our favourite clients asked us to host one for them in the lovely town of Colchester, we were excited as we knew it was a brilliant setting for a treasure hunt!

All of our treasure hunts are always written just a couple of weeks before the event especially for your group, so we set off to sunny Colchester to prepare. We found lots of material and a great route and trail for the teams follow and we were able to write an excellent route.

Unique Town or Country Company Treasure Hunt Ideas

The day of the event arrived and we briefed the teams of their challenge, we split them into teams and then it was a quick ride on the coach into town, completing a team quiz on the way.

As soon as the teams got off the bus they were busily completing tasks; with our hunts we feel it’s important to give more than just a trail, there’s other fun, interactive and team focused challenges that they complete also including a photographic challenge where we give each team a digital camera and ask them to recreate some very specific unusual team poses!

DSC_0065

Teams frantically raced against the clock in an attempt to complete all of the different sections of the challenge while all the while our Events Director Jane Chapman was keeping a close eye on them ensuring that they all were having a fantastic time!

Time was up and it was time to mark up the scores to see which team were going to be triumphant and crowned the winning team; the winners were beside themselves and there was a lot of cheering and showing off of their first place medals!

Our client was extremely pleased with the event and said:

‘Thanks so much for yet another excellent day, everyone had a brilliant time and I’ve had lots of good, positive feedback!’

The term ‘quick’ can mean different things to different clients and usually ranges from anywhere between 10 minutes and three hours, so naturally, there’s a huge range of different events that can be hosted within these time frames.

If you want to see our range of quick team building activities then take a look at our conference icebreakers, indoor events and outdoor events for an idea of how we can help you. Let’s take a look at three very popular quick team activity ideas.

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. Forget any preconceived ideas you may have about drumming, we only use experts at the top of their game, our facilitators are highly experienced in taking your objectives and conveying them in a motivational way and in a way that your entire team will buy into. Drumming events can be hosted in as little as 40 minutes up to three hours.

Drumming corporate event

Another popular team building event idea to build communication is Team Apprentice. Our version of this hugely popular TV show has been designed to specifically boost confidence and build communication amongst your teams – totally unlike the TV show! We can tailor it to your specific business objectives and like with the drumming, we only use the best. Our Lord Alan Sugar-Rush and his Eagle Eyed Advisors are trained actors and experienced event managers who know exactly how to get the best out of your team. We believe our events are only as good as the team we send out to host them, that’s why we always send out the best.

Shoot Out

In the meantime, why not take a look at our different company away day ideas that have been designed specifically to motivate teams just like yours.

Company Away Day

Daytime team activities can be both indoor or outdoor and as you would expect, we’ve got many different inspirational events for you to choose from.

Company away days don’t always stop at the end of the afternoon and many of our clients stay overnight at a venue and combine their evening meal with fun corporate entertainment, this can be as low key as a magician entertaining your guests during pre dinner drinks right up to a fully themed party night and once again, we’ve got a portfolio packed full of great Evening Entertainment Ideas.

Entertainment Ideas

Case Study

We were delighted when one of our favourite clients that we’ve been working with for many years now, asked us to host their company away day this year.Knowing what a great bunch of people they are, we knew that we were going to have a lot of fun with them!

Fun Company Away Day Ideas

Our clients wanted us to organise the venue for them, they were to arrive, have activities in the afternoon, an evening meal with entertainment and then everyone was to stay overnight. Partners were included as they realise the importance of including partners and making everyone feel like they belong to the company. Hanbury Manor in Hertfordshire was chosen out of the shortlist we suggested to the client and the activities were decided upon.

Team Away day

Company Away Day Ideas That work

The afternoon got off to a roaring start, the sun was out and everyone was up for a great afternoon! With lots of activities to participate in, there was certainly something for everyone and everybody could feel that they’d really had a go and enjoyed themselves.

Fun Team Away Day Ideas

Geese Herding was a big hit, with the sheepdogs at the ready and the shepherd demonstrating how the dogs respond to the commands, it was up to the team members to try to round up a gaggle of rowdy geese! There were Segways to master too, balance and coordination was essential to be able to navigate their way through the twisty course laid out for them.

Fun team activities

Rifle shooting was very popular and with their eyes firmly on the target you could feel the concentration as everyone tried to hit a bullseye – some more successfully than others! Another one for a keen eye was Crossbow which was a breeze for some but infuriated others!

For those wanting a little adrenaline rush we had our double seated powerturns, they always go down a storm and are quite tricky to master – Jeremy Clarkson once described them as ‘shopping trolleys on steroids!’ These are real boys toys but not just for the boys!

Archery team building event

No Country Pursuits Company Event would be complete without hay sack throwing, horseshoe throwing and of course Wellie throwing – nice and simple and brilliant fun!

Each of the teams were playing for fun money and we have to say that the lengths that they went to to ‘acquire’ it was admirable! But there could only be one winning team, so the money was counted and the winners announced and the celebrations started! Then it was off back to the bar for a well deserved drink and to get ready for the evening entertainment – a perfect end for their company away day!
