Activity Day - Team Building in Devon

Last week we headed to the seaside for an Activity Day at the fabulous Langstone Cliff Hotel. Our clients got to grips with Archery, Rage Buggies, Laser Clay Pigeon Shooting and Geese Herding, with magnificent sea views as a backdrop. Starting off with Archery, CCC staff were extremely impressed with the skills of everyone involved - including one sharp shooter, who managed to split his first arrow with his second!

We then moved on to Geese Herding, which involves directing a real sheepdog and geese around the course, often with hilarious results!

Next was Rage Buggies to kick adrenaline levels up a gear - a fast-paced thrill ride which had the teams buzzing.

We finished the day in a slightly more gentrified manner, with a spot of Laser Clay Pigeon shooting. Team GB's recent success in Shooting events at London 2012 inspired the teams to give it all they had, and we saw some brilliant scores as a result.

All in all, it was a great way to spend an afternoon by the sea - for our clients, and for us! Event Manager Steve commented:

"I love this event because it's a chance for our clients to get to do activities they might not otherwise. There's always plenty of banter about highest scores and who's going to win, and it's always fun to get out of the meeting room and into the great outdoors."

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."

Team Building at Wotton House in Surrey

The sun stayed out and made for a great day yesterday at the beautiful Wotton House Hotel in Dorking, Surrey.

Event Manager Kate Packham was running our action packed outdoor team building event, the Cryptic Challenge, for 160 delegates and had this to say on the day:

"A little bit of rain doesn't damage outdoor events, and can sometimes even add to the enjoyment. That said, you'll never hear me complain when we get glorious sunshine like this! The clients had a great time and, as ever with a Cryptic Challenge, the finale was nail-biting and hilarious!"

The Cryptic Challenge sees teams compete head to head in a series of devious games, testing their mental and physical agility - and also their ability to work as a team! Imagine if the Krypton Factor and the Crystal Maze had a child together - we like to think it would look a bit like the Cryptic Challenge!

Give us a call on 0845 006 06 06 to discover how we can make your next event truly memorable.

Behind The Scenes - The Apprentices!

Another day, another great team building event! At the Grand Hotel, Brighton, we were right on our own doorstep for The Apprentices!

Mike Horner, the event manager on the day, said "Nick's entrance is great - he storms into the conference room shouting into his phone, switching back and forth between English and Russian, before finally hanging up and seeing the guests for the first time and fixing them with his trademark steely glare!"
