QHotels partners with Team Spirit to host summer team building activities

Teambuilding at Norton Park

Who wants to be stuck in an office or meeting room when the sun is shining outside? If you really want to engage, motivate and bond with your delegates this summer, take team building outside.

This year, QHotels, together with team building partner Team Spirit, is organising a host of summer-themed activities for corporate professionals ranging from outdoor problem-solving challenges, to falconry and 'It's a Knockout' events complete with giant costumes, water and foam.

These types of summer activities really boost morale amongst your team. Delegates can go away having bonded as a team and formed lasting relationships.

Tom Woodhead, Marketing Manager at Team Spirit explains:

"We love to work with venues, like QHotels' Norton Park for example, which have plenty of indoor meeting and conference space to accommodate large delegate numbers, and the outdoor grounds  - (Norton Park boasts 54 acres) - for the team building activities.

"Our clients and delegates love the combination of old and new, so the traditional manor house and barn at Norton Park, contrasting with all the mod cons of its modern conferencing facility, is really appealing. And there's the option to be flexible with lunch and dinner arrangements as many professionals dine alfresco or opt for a summer barbeque to complete their day outside"

Whichever of QHotels' 27 venues you choose for your next team-building event, below are some of our recommended summer activities for you and your team:

It's a Knockout

It's a Knockoutreplicates the fun 70s TV classic, with teams competing in fun costumes, on giant inflatables with water and foam, in their quest to earn the most points and be crowned theIt's a Knockoutchampion.

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 Influencer

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

For example, for the Minefield challenge,teams havelimited equipment and time to make their way through a minefield to set off a "live" bomb.

For our Toxic Transfer activity, teams have to transport the toxic liquid to the safety vessel, without touching it or spilling any liquid, which would lead to contamination!


Snapshot is a photo-based treasure hunt activity and the ideal way for your delegates to appreciate their conference destination, as they navigate their way around using a route and clues.

Teams are also tasked with completing practical challenges to earn extra points. They can earn bonus points en route for solving fun treasure hunt-style cryptic clues and questions, meeting a few interesting characters along the way.

Snapshot works brilliantly in the rolling acres at Norton Park, but can equally be adapted to city centre location like The Queens or The Midland.
