Client Vision:

HSS wanted to hold an event to combine both work and play that enabled them to have a business meeting in the morning and a team building event in the afternoon accompanied with food and drinks. They wanted to bring two different departments together to create two different team building days for 90 people in total. They wanted a venue suitable for a meeting space, team building space and also bedrooms for their staff in the evening. The main principle of their version was to bring the team together, so they asked us to think of creative team builds we could do that would be suitable for an active group.

Our Solution:

ATM Events venue finding team located the Chesford Grand as an ideal location to hold their event for the two day team building activity days. This friendly hotel combines the character of a historic manor house with brink, contemporary areas, surrounded by 17 acres of countryside portraying the quality of its interior and grounds.

On both the day’s of the event the hotel provided one of their characteristic meeting rooms where HSS were able to successfully meet their aims and objectives for the morning.

Chesford Grange with their complete exclusivity of the lawn area allowed ATM Events the pleasure of delivery their Qube Challenge and Crystal Mazes team build across two different days for two groups.

The Qube Challenge is an event which is based around our main set ‘The Qube’ where individuals from teams were be invited to take part in a number of bonus challenges and tasks. There also was a series of team games and activities taking place designed to get the whole team interacting. We split the teams into groups of 4 teams and all teams aimed to beat the Qube. This was a perfect activity for HSS as it achieved exactly what they were looking for and had the correct amount of activities to get the mind and body working to complete challenges.

For the other group, ATM delivered the Crystal Maze Activity this is Based on the popular ‘90’s game show, our flagship Crystal Maze is probably one of the most popular team building events in the world. Hosted by our very own energetic presenters, in teams they competed against each other in an exhilarating mix of activities, dashing between the Aztec, Medieval, Industrial and Futuristic zones.

Teams faced an exciting range of mental, skill, physical and mystery challenges that if successful, will yield a precious crystal and seconds of time inside the crystal dome. At this frenzied finish to the day, a representative of the top teams battled and collect as many gold tickets as possible in our dome, the team with the most gold tickets are crowned the winners.

After a fantastic afternoon the group freshened up and enjoy a delicious 3 course meal and drinks allowing delegates to unwind after an eventful day.
