About Us

Who is the EML Team?

The EML Team is an award winning corporate team building company. Founded in 2000, we’ve successfully designed and delivered exceptional team events worldwide. 

Our diverse team is made up of individuals who love what they do. We’ve assembled the finest hosts, team facilitators, and organisers who are all dedicated to helping your team achieve amazing things.


Where did it all start?

The inception of EML can be traced back to the meeting of its co-founders, Jon Huggett and Neil Cleaver, during their employment at a corporate events company in the Midlands. As they honed their skills, they aspired to offer team activities and events of the highest quality, focusing on delivering measurable outcomes for companies seeking more than just throw away fun.

Their vision entailed establishing a company that identified clients’ objectives and delivered tailored events of exceptional caliber to help them achieve their goals. EML aimed to guide clients through the entire event process, from developing a business case to evaluating the effectiveness of an event.

Thus, in the year 2000, Jon and Neil established EML Team—a business committed to customising events to suit your specific needs, seamlessly executing them, and accurately assessing their impact on your objectives. Our friendly and experienced team is dedicated to providing comprehensive support at every step. To this day, we exclusively organize team building activities, workshops, and events that we are confident will fulfill your aspirations.

We also work with organisations like the NHS, Birmingham University and Southampton Football Club to deliver exceptional results.

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