Corporate Events and Team Building in the Peak District.
The traditional team building activity of physically challenging your staff is well served in the Derbyshire Peak District. With wild moorland areas to challenge their navigational skills and easily accessible climbing areas for climbing and abseiling, what better area of the UK to visit. As the Peak is central to the UK, it is a perfect place to meet up if you have offices scattered throughout the UK and is only a 2-3 hours away from most of the major cities of England. So your team will feel that they are really getting away from it but not having to spend a long time getting there! Below is some more specific information. If you are a provider of team building and corporate events and wish to be featured on this page, please let us know. There will be a one off admin fee to add your listing.
Physically challenging events that develop trust and communication are still a very popular type of corporate event and team building day. Activities such as navigation across featureless moorland, climbing, abseiling and weaselling are favoured since participants have to trust each other, trust the leader and communicate with one another whilst being pushed well out of their comfort zone.
But team building in the Peak District need not be all challenge and discomfort. There are other, more civilised ways of developing teamwork.
There are plenty of providers team building in the Peak District, for example Hydroactive and Hunt for Treasure.
Hydroactive offer Abseiling, climbing and weaselling out in the Peak District (usually at the Roaches and Millersdale Viaduct plus residential days at a site just north of Derby where you can focus on problem solving tasks. Of course, there is no need to use these activities for team building, they make for exciting and unforgettable corporate events that you can use to reward your staff – particularly appropriate for organisations with staff who are young and dynamic.
Hunt for Treasure organise treasure hunts (no surprise there then!!) at any venue in the UK. Treasure hunts make superb team building days as they foster communication, problem solving, planning and other skills essential to the creation of a successful team in the workplace. The great thing about a treasure hunt is that you can announce it as a corporate event – a company fun day out – and your staff will not even realise that they are on a team building exercise!
As technology has advanced, this too has been incorporated into team building and corporate events. GPS is a popular gadget and so GPS treasure hunts are becoming more popular.
