No other TV show has successfully packaged the harshness of business life with brutal interpersonal competition to match the BBC’s The Apprentice. The long walks of doom towards the boardroom and the no-nonsense rulings from Sir Alan Sugar are dramatic to watch!
Whist we definitely recreate all the inter-team rivalry and many other elements from the TV show, the overriding factors in our own team building event version – Team Apprentice – are sheer fun and creative team thinking.
Team Apprentice starts in familiar dramatic style with participants asked to stand while our very own Sir Alan Sugar Rush enters the room, totally in character, with his stern faced assistants. From this moment on, the fun, pressure and healthy competition begin as teams try to avoid the immortal words “Your Fired”!
With a series of interactive team tasks to complete against the clock throughout this popular team building activity, together with occasional team reshuffling, participants get to put all their business acumen into practice. Teams have to think practically, financially and even aesthetically to successfully complete tasks before regrouping in the boardroom to face you know who!
Our Team Apprentice event is very flexible. It can be run as an immersive full-day experience or just for half a day. We can make use of outside locations, if required, or you can completely avoid the rain with participants completing the tasks indoors instead.
Our skilful actors really do make this unique team building activity special, as they seamlessly maintain the flow and energy throughout the day. Sir Alan Sugar Rush is hilarious and regularly pops up when participants least expect him with probing questions and a knowing smile. As each task comes to an end, the pressure mounts and final touches and last minute changes are fussed over.
Team Apprentice lets participants see whole new sides to their colleagues as they work in very new ways together. Leadership, patience and compromise all play a vital part in achieving team success.
So, if you want to have a completely entertaining team building event with all the thrills and spills of the hit TV show, then just give the office a call and tell them ”You’re Hired”! For more information about Team Apprentice, or any of our events, please contact us.
