iSpy - High-Tech Team Building in London

We had a brilliant time basking in both the sunshine and the atmosphere in London last week, running an iSpy for a fantastic group of clients.

One of our newest events, iSpy was created with high-tech gadgetry in mind - each team is armed with an iPad, radio, video camera and digital camera and tasked with a quest around their local city, tackling a range of entertaining challenges.

The teams had a great time playing with their new toys - the radio in particular providing the chance to indulge in childhood dreams of being a 'cop' - before the competitive streaks took over and they began their adventure.

As well as completing radio, video and photo challenges, the teams used GPS tracking on their iPads to locate costumed characters at popular London landmarks, who were ready and waiting with bonus clues:

London itself was looking fabulous - with the city still buzzing from the Games, it was the perfect backdrop for some competitive fun:

When the teams had tackled as many challenges as possible in the time they were given, we finished up at Browns in Covent Garden, where everyone was treated to some well-deserved drinks before the winners were announced - ending the day on a massive high.

Going for Gold: Team Building in London

After an amazing fortnight in London, we've all been suffering from withdrawal symptoms and eagerly awaiting the Paralympics. Luckily, we needn't have felt so blue - only a few days after the closing ceremony, CCC Events was running its own 2012 -themed day in London!

We began the day with an opening ceremony to rival anything Danny Boyle could come up with, including an inaugural lighting of the flame. The group then got competitive with jazzed-up versions of traditonal sports, including Giant Shot-put, Junkyard Javelin, Giant Penalty Shoot-Out and the ever-hilarious Water-less Synchronised Swimming!

The final activity was a brilliant 4x400ml Relay, in which we swapped out the traditional baton for water-soaked sponges! Teams raced to gather as much water in their team container as possible by tossing the sponges to one another - trying not to get too soaked themselves:

Event manager Kye commented,

"The 2012 spirit is still going strong today - there's been plenty of banter and the teams are even more competitive than Team GB!"

'The Apprentices!' team build gets a technological makeover in London

It wasn't just the mid-summer heat wave that had our teams fired up in London this week - The Apprentices! event had teams running around the city, haggling for the best prices and filming TV commercials to win the challenge and avoid those famous last words; 'You're fired!' We had the pleasure of working from the luxurious St Ermin's Hotel in central London where the staff couldn't have been more helpful and the decor was immaculate. We even got a sneak peak of the Olympic torch from our conference room window!

Teams were kitted out with iPads, digital cameras, HD video cameras and two-way radios to help them fight it out over who would be hired and who would be fired at the end of a very hectic day!

Our experienced front man Terry Bird had the teams begging for forgiveness when they arrived late and making final pleas in the board room - putting them through their paces in a battle of race-against-time business challenges.

Apprentices Team Building Event with CCC

Event Manager Katrina commented:

'The clients wanted something business focused, using the latest technology, whilst still being good fun - The Apprentices! event is perfect for just that. We tailored the event to have teams answer ridiculous radio requests from our tycoon, shoot their own TV commercials and create final pitches on their team iPads - it worked really well.'

Having the opportunity to tailor our award winning events with some of our in-house technology keeps us all on our toes in the office and we love to see a good plan come together - here's what our clients had to say:

'Thanks so much for the activity, really good fun. Sir Terrence was excellent, everyone enjoyed it, many thanks to you all!'

Think that your team would fare against our 'terrible tycoon'? Think you've got more business savvy than your colleagues? Want to see your boss grovelling for forgiveness? Then give our team a call on 0845 006 06 06 or visit our website for more info.
