Even in wet and windy months (that’s a fair chunk of our year right?!) we still host great teambuilding activities for cold weather.
OK – that may be a little exaggerated. The weather part that is.
Even though us Brits love to complain about the weather, it rarely prevents us from enjoying the outdoors. But our experience shows that some people prefer to stay dry and (relatively) warm.
So what do you do when you need an inclusive teambuilding activity for cold weather? Get your climbing shoes on of course!
The tale of two motorbikes and a climbing wall
Ever found the perfect team building activity, but couldn’t use it because it wouldn’t fit indoors?
Our climbing wall is quite versatile and luckily for Harley Davidson Motorcycles Europe, it can be used both indoors and out.
Working closely with the German Event Management company responsible for delivering events for the iconic motorcycle brand, we reviewed access, space and height requirements at the Harley Davidson European HQ in Oxford.
After a few discussions we confirmed the wall would fit – making it a great addition to the other activities arranged for their staff day.
And what a day it was!
The morning saw teams working together to build and race their own go-kart. Then followed a fantastic BBQ lunch and an afternoon of calorie crunching activities, including our climbing wall.
To add an element of light-hearted competition the climbs were timed.
The prize? A £300 custom made helmet!
Sadly none of our team were quite as fast as the winner….. Stephen wowed the crowd with an amazing time of just 8.6 seconds!
The day finished in style with a fantastic display by one of the few Motorcycle Stunt riders who use a Harley Davidson.
All in all, a perfect example of how our activities slot in with others to create an engaging and memorable event.
