Our team building events are designed to engage and inspire participant teams resulting in performance and productivity benefits. We create challenging experiences which focus attention on the teams specific “need-to-change” behaviours.
We specialise in bespoke team building events, each created to engage and enable participants to glean a fresh view of their performance and then to modify actions and behaviours towards greater personal contribution and overall team performance. These events typically include a blend of experiential team activities, opportunities to review performance and explore team building models, theories and strategies.
Our events last from a few hours and may extend over many days. Our team building activities and exercises can last from a few minutes up to a few hours, and we work with groups of 4 to 600 participants at a time, throughout the year.
Take On Engaging Team Building Challenges
Combining adventurous challenges with inspirational locations increases the longevity of learning, in many cases ensuring that the benefits from the team building experience last a life-time.
Bespoke Team Building
We've never encountered two identical teams or organisations and suspect that we never will so we design bespoke team building events as a matter of course. Each event is fashioned to give the particular outcomes that each of our client teams require.
We may use similar team building activities and challenges though the way these are presented, the nature and context of the challenges and the solution or methodology will vary according to each clients' unique team building objectives.
There are many factors involved in creating and managing a bespoke team building event, so we'll work closely with you to ensure a smooth management process.
Facilitated Team Building
During our facilitated team building activities and programmes, the experiential development activity is interwoven with a guided review and evaluation process that enables participants to reflect on the effect of their actions and behaviours, evaluate the relationship between their intention and the result, and subsequently to modify their approach in the next team building activity and in the workplace.
The key benefit of a facilitated team building course is the transference of new learning with specific intentions into the workplace environment through future path planning processes.
Facilitation of the learning during a team building event maximises the return on investment in both time and money, with the end result that team building becomes a powerful business development process, not merely a team maintenance or leisure activity.
Urban Team Building
Our towns and cities offer fantastic opportunities for urban team building events; perhaps not the same kind of challenges as you might expect in the more adventurous outdoors, but superb challenges nevertheless.
Our urban team building events take advantage of the environment and terrain engaging participants in a uniquely memorable experience.
Urban events have several advantages; they could be on your doorstep; they make use of the superb facilities available in most urban settings; they engage participants in their most familiar environment and they reduce the need for transport meaning that they can offer better value in financial and environmental terms.
Team Bonding Events
Team bonding events differ in that they focus on bringing the team together to strengthen the existing relationships rather than to change behaviours and develop performance.
Teams are like engines; they need maintenance (and possibly lubrication) so that they continue to perform smoothly. To expect a team to continue to perform without maintenance is similar to ignoring the warning light on your dashboard. It could become costly.
Effective team maintenance merely requires a change of scenery, a change of activity and a change of pace; a challenge to share, with the opportunity to work and play together as a team in a place from which a refreshed perspective can be gained.
Team Energising Activities
Every team need an investment of energy every now and then, a momentum-generating kick start to carry them through hard times. Our team energising activities and events are designed to refuel, revitalise, awaken and inspire participant teams.
We deliver team energisers for conferences and training courses lasting from 20 minutes to a few hours, and bespoke team energising events lasting up to three days; we can cater for up to 600 participants throughout the UK and overseas.
Team Building To Challenge Team Performance
We frequently use simple developmental and illustrative team theories and models such as Belbin’s Team Roles to help teams to identify why they work the way they do and what they can do to enhance their performance.
Our team building activities and exercises are designed to challenge team performance rather than physical or emotional prowess, and all challenges are achievable for anyone of average fitness and strength, with bespoke activities available or developed for specific inclusion situations.
Many of our team building events are run from venues specified by our clients, though we can offer options from our database of team building venues around the UK.
What Our Customers Say
The Moffat/McColl family had a fantastic experience on their day out with Key Adventures. Al was a great leader and saw us safely through abseiling, raft building and ghyll scrambling. There were some nerves at the start but much laughter throughout and a great sense of achievement afterwards. Even though the weather did it's best to dampen our spirits we all had lots of fun; it really was a superbly satisfying and memorable day!
Thank you Simon and Al for looking after us so well - we would 100% recommend Key Adventures. Take up the challenge, it's so worth it!Family Outdoor Activity Event
Thank you and your team for a fantastic day last Thursday. It has been extremely well received and, despite a few aches, pains and bruises, the workplace is absolutely buzzing this morning. We now have to build on the good work that we have started.Borrowdale Team Challenge
