Prodrive Team Challenge


> Brief

Oxfordshire based motorsport specialist, Prodrive, approached The Events Company to deliver a team building team challenge event for 160 of their employees.

> Scale

The 160 guests consisted of Directors, Management, Shop floor and Admin staff.

> Solution

Prodrive’s original brief was very interesting and required elements from a collection of team building team challenge formats to achieve their objectives. Our Head of Team Building developed an idea based around our classic team building event, ‘Crystal Challenge’. This event rewarded guests with (fake!) crystals depending on their achievement in each challenge. The bespoke team challenge format included our standard Crystal Challenge activities, as well as a selection of games such as archery, laser clay pigeon shooting, inflatables, team building games and a climbing wall.

The crystals were to be exchanged for time in the large inflatable dome / vortex. Unfortunately, the weather was so severe, the finale wasn’t able to take place.  However, this did not detract from the day. We knew the day was going to be a success right from the get go when the PT from Prodrive gave the audience a 15-minute warm up! All guests took part and all entered the day with the right frame of mind, even though it was probably the worst weather we have ever delivered an event in!

We are very impressed with Prodrive and look forward in seeing their next brief and creating something weird, whacky and wonderful for them.

‘I just want to say thank you again for yesterday! It was a pleasure working with yourself and your team, despite the rain I think everyone had a great time! It was great to have you guys run the event and just nail it so smoothly! So glad that I chose you guys and pushed through after speaking with you in the first discussion we had! I will try and obtain photos for you next week, and if you would like testimonials I am happy to provide one and can see if any of the people at Prodrive will be willing to also and hopefully we will work together again in the near future.’
