Team building in winter
With winter fast approaching we spoke to Dan Solen at GOTO Events about how to get the most out of team building events over the colder months.
What is your most popular team building activities in Winter?
Everyone always thinks the summer is the time to book a team building activity, and I can see why with the long days and great weather but winter can be just as perfect! Here at GOTO Events we have worked hard to develop and invest in some top quality indoor activities, and as they aren’t weather-dependent you can easily mix a conference with a fun afternoon doing something different.
Our most popular event for winter has to be our Qube Activity – we can transform the room and really add that wow factor! We come along with our Qube inflatable, we have the lights, the music, the games, the host and most of all the tension. It really is where simple games become epic challenges – there is great competition between the teams trying to defeat the Qube and a lot of fun to be had while under pressure!
What are your top tips to get the best out of team building events?
- It really is to let the clients feel at ease and not think they are in a working environment too much.
- Do the serious stuff in the morning and then have some fun in the afternoon – honestly you will get so much out of mixing it up and letting people feel natural while doing a team build.
What are the new up and coming trends in team building?
Here at GOTO Events we really believe team building is changing from the old school games to new, cool and quirky experiences – we think it is all about the feel and look of an event, mixed with great staff which is the perfect combination. We want the clients to be impressed from start to finish.
We have invested heavily in our very own mobile Escape Rooms, with four different themed rooms there is plenty for everyone all with a great feel. There are plenty of challenges and themed to the max to really think you are in a prison or science lab – just beware don’t get locked in or you maybe there forever…
