Our team building event of the month for December had to be a fantastic Memory Lane, our largest one to date, run at the Reebok Stadium. With the majority of our facilitation team being avid football fans, the venue was perfect! We even managed to get a sneaky peak of the pitch with its floodlights on the night before when our preparations began. This event wasn’t just chosen for the event of the month because of the venue, the client didn’t let us down: they thoroughly enjoyed themselves and were a laugh a minute!
With it being December, there was a subtle Christmas theme throughout, with each team having their name after the twelve days of Christmas. With more than 12 teams we had some inventive ones mixed in as well. We had lots of “gifts” and “true loves” amongst the many “maids a milking” and “lords a leaping”! Continuing the Christmas theme, we created our very own pop band who played a brilliant rendition of ‘Jingle Bells’ which had everyone singing along, some in the audience even got up on their feet to get a better glimpse at the new pop stars and to dance along! Whether it would ever rival Band Aid in the real charts is something that you’d have to decide for yourself…
Everyone got involved with all the tasks available, whether they were pouring over the many artists from each decade, competing in PacMan, completing wordsearches, hula hooping or creating beautiful flowers for the origami garden. The stand out highlight for us, the facilitation team, and quite likely the client as well, had to be the Air Guitar contest. The winner was certainly one of our best competitors to take part to date! Even the others guitarists competing were watching the winner rather than concentrate on how to entertain the audience themselves!
All in all, it was a brilliant event to end the year with. We’re looking forward to 2012 bringing us more of the same!
