Top tips for teambuilding events

We've seen a surge in demand for teambuilding events at our 26 venues across the UK in recent years and this is partly down to QHotels' official partnership with Team Spirit.

Working with our preferred teambuilding partner means our clients not only benefit from their expertise and experience, but their understanding of our venues and our customers. The Team Spirit teams understand what works at each of our venues and the experience our delegates have come to expect.

With so many unique hotels in the group, from rural acres at Chesford Grange, to The Midland and The Queens in bustling city centres, it's important for us to be able to create teambuilding experiences that suit each individual client, but also play to each venue's strengths and work within the space.

This year, we've worked with Team Spirit to organise teambuilding activities ranging from problem-solving challenges and app-based treasure hunts, to falconry and outdoor 'It's a Knockout' events complete with giant costumes, water and foam. These types of activities have a huge effect on team morale and delegates can go away having bonded and formed lasting relationships.

Here are just some of our favourite teambuilding events and top tips:

Go Team

The popularity of Pokemon Go has put treasure hunt app activities at the top of event bookers' lists this year. So, it's no surprise that Go Team - a GPS-enabled treasure hunt app which allows real-time interactivity in a live teambuilding environment - has been in demand at our rural venues, such as Norton Park.

Delegates can use tablets to navigate their way around the grounds of the hotel on mini-missions, completing location-based questions, team picture contests and QR code-activated tasks. Go team!!

It's a Knockout

It's a Knockout replicates the fun 70s TV classic, with teams competing in fun costumes, on giant inflatables with water and foam in the scenic grounds of   Chesford Grange, in their quest to earn the most points and be crowned the 'It's a Knockout' champion.

It goes down a storm with delegates. It's competitive, fun and puts a huge smile on people's faces.

Whilst the event is fun, it can also re-enforce key business themes of teamwork and communication and working together to achieve a common goal.

Outside influence

Outside influence offers a selection of problem-solving activities and challenges for teams to work through together.

For example, for our Toxic Transfer activity, teams have to transport the toxic liquid to the safety vessel in the outdoor grounds at Chesford Grange, without touching it or spilling any liquid, which would lead to contamination!
