The Apprentice (2-5 Hours)

We bring all the action, competitiveness, team work, innovation, determination and of course the boardroom to life in this amazing emulation of the famous TV series. Themed with our very own Sir Frank Sweet, teams are divided and given their challenge for the day. Challenge themes are dedicated to a chosen charity. We have a number of charities which work particularly well for the event, however we can bespoke the experience to a charity of your choice. Event themes include acquiring items from a set shopping list. Teams’ pocket money is a lot lower than the value of the items, requiring lots of negotiating with local business owners. We design this list to ensure all items are of direct benefit to the chosen charity..

Each group are given a briefcase of resources including maps, local business information, travel resources (which can range from travel cards to the traditional blacked out people carriers), and a dossier detailing Sir Frank’s specific instructions such as penalties for being late. The event concludes back in the boardroom, where teams go head to head with their results and their personal pitches to ultimately see who is hired.

Why Team Building Is Important for your Business

Improving communication · Making the workplace more enjoyable · Motivating a team · Getting to know each other · Getting everyone "onto the same page", including goal setting · Teaching the team self-regulation strategies · Helping participants to learn more about themselves (strengths and weaknesses) · Identifying and utilizing the strengths of team members · Improving team productivity · Practicing effective collaboration with team members

Team building refers to a wide range of activities, presented to businesses, schools, sports teams, religious or nonprofit organizations designed for improving team performance. Team building is pursued via a variety of practices, and can range from simple bonding exercises to complex simulations and multi-day team building retreats designed to develop a team (including group assessment and group-dynamic games), usually falling somewhere in between. It generally sits within the theory and practice of organizational development, but can also be applied to sports teams, school groups, and other contexts. Team building is not to be confused with "team recreation" that consists of activities for teams that are strictly recreational. Teambuilding is an important factor in any environment, its focus is to specialize in bringing out the best in a team to ensure self development, positive communication, leadership skills and the ability to work closely together as a team to problem solve. Work environments tend to focus on individuals and personal goals, with reward & recognition singling out the achievements of individual employees. "How to create effective teams is a challenge in every organization" Team building can also refer to the process of selecting or creating a team from scratch.
