      The event: 1920's Themed Dinner and Party
      Venue: Western Park House

      Sixty clients and their partners enjoyed exclusive use of one of England’s finest stately homes for a 1920’s themed murder mystery evening.

      The event: Corporate Team-building day
      Venue: Tandem Experience
      Total Number of delegates:50 People

      Event Overview

      The Tandem Experience is a unique opportunity in Team-building. Riding a tandem is used as the focus to concentrate the team's energy, building on relationships and promoting cooperation. Team members experienced piloting and co-piloting a tandem while taking part in: steering and navigating exercises, Tandem team games and a treasure hunt.

      Quote markThe 'Tandem Experience' ticked all our boxes - fun, supporting each other, using each other's skills, communication, building relationships and achieving success as a team. It also helped them understand the different 'teams' they are in within a branch and how they need to work together to achieve results.
