A great expedition of discovery

The challenge

To kick off a business change programme with an off site team engagement day. The main aim of the exercise was to educate and engage employees with the reasons for change, to get to know the amalgamated teams and how they will contribute to shaping the future of the organisation.

Our response

A concept led approach to the day was proposed as “an expedition of discovery” appealing to different cultures and languages aimed at galvanising a team of 180 staff from across Western Europe into bonding over shared change.

An expedition theme ran throughout the whole day from the pre event build up with people getting their travel plans in order to an intrepid explorer hosting the day. Delegates had a branded diary journal to fill out on the day featuring “get to know the expedition team leaders” as top trumps style cards for sticking in the journal.

Team activities were all aligned with the event theme and the outdoor venue combined with beautiful weather made the day both memorable and successful with a barbeque to end the day in al fresco style!

This fully project managed event including creative ideas and concepts, final design and production brought disparate people together in what had been seen as a trying time to engage and inspire them for an expedition for the future!
