Corporate Outdoor Team Building

Our corporate outdoor team building activities prepare teams to achieve exceptional results. All in the great outdoors!

When we work together effectively, we achieve far more than we could alone. That’s why it’s worth investing in building a team with the right skills to reach your organisational objectives. 

How Does Corporate Outdoor Team Building Improve Performance?

Our outdoor team building events make the most of large spaces for team building on a grand scale. They get your workforce into the fresh air and natural light and encourage physical activity and interaction between colleagues. This creates a highly effective learning environment for your team.

Our activities develop skills necessary for extraordinary team performance. Need better team working skills? Try your hand at the Crystal Maze! Problem solving skills? Crack a Code Breaker Treasure Hunt. Resource management skills? Try building a working catapult in our Junkyard Challenge.  

Our team building activities feature time limits and competition to simulate a fast-paced work environment. Working together to achieve a result also improves team bonding and motivation while allowing you to see how your team performs under pressure. You’ll identify strong points that you can leverage at work, while resolving potential stumbling blocks before they can negatively affect your organisation.

What are Outdoor Team Building Activities Best Suited for? 

Our corporate outdoor team building activities are excellent as standalone team building events or as part of a larger event, such as a company fun day or corporate conference. All outdoor events can be adapted to suit different team sizes and time frames. They require an outdoor space, such as the grounds of a hotel or an open field. 

Don’t have a venue yet? We’ll find a venue for you free of charge. And if you’re putting together a larger event, take a look at our event management services to see how we can help. 

Measurable Team Building Outcomes

No one wants to shell out for a team building event that doesn’t deliver. This is why we’ve used our 21 years’ experience providing award-winning corporate team building activities to create a unique 5 step team building process. This process allows us to identify your objectives and then design an event to fulfil them all. 

As part of this process, we offer Team Impact Reports that evaluate your event’s effectiveness. These combine performance data, facilitator observations, participants’ feedback and expert insights to tell you how your team performed, assess your event’s effectiveness and generate actionable points for the future.

Many thanks to Neil and Ruth for leading our virtual team building exercise... Many laughs were had while scrambling to collect the twenty items...!!!
