As clients become more and more discerning about what they want to achieve with their team building events, being able to offer distinctive, unique and fresh events is increasingly important. While all of our sessions are unique in some way, we also offer truly bespoke activities.
Whenever we receive an enquiry, one of the first questions we ask is, “What is the nature and objective of your event?” By first understanding what the CEO, directors or managers expect to achieve with their investment, we can propose an option that offers a perfect fit within the agenda, budget and objectives of our clients.
In most cases, it is obvious that one or more of our existing activities will fit the bill and we simply outline to our clients the best options from which they can choose. Occasionally, we get a brief that is so different or unusual that that it demands an immediate ‘office think tank’ to come up with specific inspiring ideas. We love this situation! We’re proud to say that, within our circle of regular clients, we are the first call when they need an entirely new and exciting concept that will work and is achievable.
The term ’bespoke event’ is often misused. I believe that there is a significant difference between slightly augmenting a ‘standard’ team building activity, which is delivered regularly, and thinking up from scratch, creating and then producing something totally new.
Ideas stay ideas unless you can find the right people to make them real. When asked to come up with weird and wonderful activities, in strange venues or baffling corporate environments, we first identify the facilitators that would be perfect for the job. This is because the success of a session often comes down simply to the expertise of the head facilitator. We are so lucky to be surrounded with highly talented facilitators with their own specialities, including entertainment and musical skills and team development expertise.
Here are three examples of really interesting bespoke events that we have recently delivered.
Only last week, we totally transformed a conference room into a Victorian Music Hall. With some of the UK’s leading expert entertainers in this very stylised entertainment form, the audience were treated to many singers, dancers, comedians and magicians, recreating a ‘knees up’ spectacular as a one-off bespoke performance.
We delivered a musical session on behalf of a bicycle company. The client had already commissioned an expensive music score, which was created to accompany a video. The video was to be shown within a large conference and our client wanted to enhance this presentation with something that involved the audience. Throughout the day, we taught specific vocal bicycle sound effects to different groups within the thoroughly bemused audience. Not until the end of the day did it all make sense. As a finale, we conducted each sound effect in perfect sync with the music and video, creating an amazing team experience.
We recently created a ‘Christmas in Vegas’ theme for an annual award ceremony. The room was set up for 300 diners in sultry black and shocking vibrant pink. Huge ostrich feather table centres provided an extravagant feature and the large flat screens around the room displayed continual falling snow. Naturally, there was an Elvis show after dinner and the company drink tokens were, of course, casino chips!
So, please do not feel constrained by the range of options featured on our web site if you feel you want something different. Please call us and ask for a new approach or radical entertaining options, to make sure that your forthcoming team building event or corporate entertainment activity is totally memorable.
