10 Top Tips for a Successful Teambuilding eventPosted on: 01/10/2019
Deciding on an appropriate office awayday event is not a task to be taken lightly as there are always lots of points of view to be taken into account. However, here is a handy 10 point guide prepared specially by Black Cat Treasure Hunts to help you show your boss,friends and colleagues how a treasure hunt written by us could be the perfect solution:
1. Team building or Team bonding
? Treasure hunts are perfect for either. Here is a chance to work closely with colleagues from departments you only talk to on the phone or have fun discovering a new City with your regular, great team mates.
2. Tax Deductible
. If the economic climate is not to your boss` liking then just drop the phrase "Of course a team building event is tax deductible and includes transport,activity,accommodation,food and drink up to a certain per person cost." Your boss is already looking into your rise for next year.
. Bit of a deal maker in my opinion. Black Cat would like to point you to our reviews on Google Maps, on this website and on our Facebook page. Feel re-assured when you see a steady stream of 5* recommendations.
I know.... you dont have any! Black Cat can recommend start/finish points,pubs,cafes,team numbers,guidelines,routes for pregnant competitors..anything and everything you need for a treasure hunt in your chosen venue in fact...saving you a lot of time really just to relax and bask in the glory of being the person who suggested this.
. Best places to park or be dropped off are suggested. Oh and did I mention it can be tax deductible!
6. Team selection
. Part of the fun. The most recent teambuilding event I attended got everyone to pick a random stick of flavoured rock (we were in Brighton). Alternatively if you are ultra competitive and the pride of the company is at stake then I recommended going inter departmental.
7. Thrilling and Testing
. Black Cat believes in using a wide range of challenges,questions and tasks that can range from the daring to mentally stimulating and will involve everyone.
8. Typecasting not allowed
. We personalise the hunts by using info and photos about and of the participants or use a theme if preferred or just concencentrate on making the challenges and questions bespoke for you..whatever you prefer.
9. Terrific fun guaranteed
. Discover things about a City and your colleagues that you never knew. Watch the video clips and look at the photos afterwards from the other teams. This is not the sort of thing that a regular tour guide will be giving you.
10. Teasing , Tea and Sympathy and Trophies
. Teasing in full measures when you see some epic fails from your and other teams. Wash it away with some tea and sympathy from friends and colleagues..or maybe drink something a little stronger if it`s a day off tomorrow. Black Cat Treasure Hunts trophies tend to be fun and imaginative rather than shall we say `no expense spared`! After all if you won our Cockney Rhyming Slang treasure hunt you would be disappointed if a bag of apples and pears was not awarded to the winners!
