Community Profile Raiser
The client was looking for an event that would help create networks within it’s people whilst also benefitting their local community. The event would also include a short time for an update from the boss, whilst he had his full team of 250 in the same room at the same time.
After researching the local area for appropriate projects, we chose the Docklands Watersports & Sailing Centre. Relying heavily on volunteers, the registered charity serves the local community promoting and teaching watersports to schools and children. The centre suffers from its exposure to the elements and had a number of areas in serious need of repair.
The day was designed to fully engage guests from the moment they arrived on site. This started with a fun and active energiser before the short business session. The next part of the day saw the group working really hard in drilling, sawing, replacing, painting, cleaning, clearing, constructing and all the other jobs required to get the site ship shape.
Following a hearty BBQ lunch and the completion of their tasks, the group were rewarded by the centre with a fantastic dragon boat racing competition in the dock.
Very successful. The event got people working together, communicating, having fun and broke down barriers. We were able to do some good community service. You suggested a number of ideas that were exactly what we wanted and gave us a number of very good options.
