Why are Corporate Away Days so powerful?

Day to day work involving stress, working under pressure and meeting deadlines gives little, if any chance to spend quality time with your colleagues in your team. You have to remember you are in a team and not working alone.

For some businesses, strategy planning, budgeting and scenario planning is essential. But is that enough to achieve all your objectives? For some organisations they would answer no to that question. Adding a chance for a team to build relationships, get to know each other, be more innovative and the ability to achieve so much more is added top of their day to day corporate planning. Do you know how they do this? A change in environment for a fresh way of thinking and the chance for each member of the team to get to know each other. It’s as simple as that. Taking your colleague out of the office will not only add productivity, motivate them but will give them a chance to see a new of thinking about things. Organisations have taken professional Event Management advice and learnt team-bonding should not be ignored.

The power of valuing your team

Is your team heading in the right direction? Do they even know what direction they need to take? Your team members might know how to work successfully on a solo basis, but can they work in a team of 10, 20 or even 50 and still perform with results? Research has shown ‘93% of employees feeling valued said that they are motivated to do their best at work’. Making employees feel ‘valued’ can come from many things. This might be through extra annual leave or a pay-rise, but how many employers can afford to do this all the time?! Very very few…exactly. Valuing employees by taking them out of the office for a couple of days, a day, or even a half day gives them the opportunity to let their hair down, get to know their team on a social and fun basis but also motivates the individual to do their best when they get back into the office.

Let 2015 be the year your team excel at everything they do.  Enabling your business to flourish stems from assembling, motivating and keeping a great team happy.

 ‘The quality of the work you do will never exceed the quality of the team behind it’.

Our testimonials prove we are professionals in creative team-building. Team-building activities we produced in 2014 included:

  • Getting creative: Painting, pottery and sculpture master classes
  • Drumming workshops
  • Cookery – Get messy in the kitchen cooking a 3-course meal and producing a beautiful box of chocolates
  • Orienteering and team code breaking to achieve a team mission
  • The Apprentice – a team challenge to show how effective teamwork wins the day.
  • A  CSR project based near the client’s office.
  • An ‘Around the World’ Challenge in a famous London park

Effects will be shown in the office from Day 1.

If you think 2015 is the year for your team to be motivated and inspired to achieve the best results, then contact us to discuss the best requirements for your team. We produce unique and memorable team-building events across the UK with different styles, locations, budgets and objectives.

It’s a Wrap: Inneventive in 2014

Looking back over the past year at Inneventive, we have been reminded of some special memories and great times…

The New Year saw us wiped off our feet, and putting our creative caps on to produce some unforgettable team-building days. Our clients were on the water, on bikes and getting their hands dirty in fields and kitchens. Our testimonials have proved we really are professionals in organising team-building events.

“Just to say a big THANK YOU to you and your team for making the day go so well.  I have had a lot of thank you emails and feedback already to say how much everyone enjoyed themselves and the fabulous venue”.

As spring came and the days got longer and flowers started to blossom, so did our team. Olivia, our Events Executive was lucky enough to travel to Istanbul, Turkey to work on a very exciting event for Inneventive.  As a team, briefs for summer parties in Dorset, London and the rest of the UK were coming in. Hospitality at Glastonbury Festival proved to be very popular, and although tickets were sold out – we kept our clients VERY happy by using our contacts to get VIP tickets. (It always helps to have a huge contact list in the industry!). We offer our clients access to the biggest and best sporting and music events across the world.

“Our whole event was exceptionally well managed and run by the Inneventive team. There is nothing I feel that could have been improved on – the level and quality of service and venue was superb, and one of the best that I have experienced! Many thanks”

Summer was a very busy time for us. Hosting a stunning marquee on a farm, hidden in the beautiful idyllic countryside of Dorset, we managed summer parties our guests will never forget. We have exciting plans to keep this going for summers to come, so whether you are based in the South West or want to travel from London, we can arrange all logistics and accommodation for you so you get to experience an evening in the marquee sipping Champagne watching the Dorset sunset!

“The summer party venue was excellent with highly professional and friendly staff. Everything was ready and looking fantastic when guests arrived! Hassle free and felt well looked after all evening and throughout the whole process. We would book again with Inneventive!!”

As autumn came, and the day’s got colder, Christmas party briefs were flying in! Operations begun for a huge Sherlock Holmes themed party in a famous London museum! Roasted chestnuts, snow machines, lamp-posts and Victorian costumes made the event a success. Team-building events carried on throughout the Autumnal months and a client of ours rather enjoyed ‘Around the World’ games held in iconic London outside space! Our team-building events are not only enjoyed by all, but are beneficial as that they are hand-picked to bring teams together and develop communication and leadership skills whilst motivating staff.

December at Inneventive has seen Lizzie, our Events Executive come back from Asia to take over from Olivia who is leaving to work in the Alps! Christmas parties in London have been a success! We were lucky enough to organise the Dorset Christmas Fair 2014. We managed over 40 traders whilst organising live entertainment and created the perfect Christmas shopping experience for the people of Dorset!

We have exciting plans for 2015 and we can’t wait to share them with you!

If you have any event queries or need assistance on any aspect of an event, whether it is production, travel arrangement, venue-finding, team-building ideas or a full production service for large public events, we have the creative knowledge to make your event a huge success.
