Collaborative, Competitive and Fun
Depending on the activity you choose, we can adapt the approach of your away day depending on how you would like your team to develop.

  • Competitive? Split into competing teams, groups are given a set time to design and develop their team project. Working against the clock will encourage team work and prompt concise decision making skills.

  • Collaborative? Work as a whole and focus on strategising your project, practicing communication skills and understanding each others core strengths and the role you play within your team.

Plan ahead. Tutors and spaces need to be booked and activities planned, so the longer we have to listen to your needs before your away day, the more effective and fun it will be.

We also have spaces available for meetings and presentations* at additional hire rates.

* Seasonal and dependent on participant numbers.
