Staff Training, Development and Team Building can be Fun

Added 24th November 2011

Businesses have requested that we run activities for their staff having seen them enjoyed by school students and their volunteers.

Mark Hunter from Hunter Accountants in Bristol- "We were looking for something that was fun, explored the local history and environment and would take staff out of their immediate comfort zone. We wanted something unique and memorable that would  give us some unusual media assets for display in the office and on the website."

The activity was run by two staff from My Future My choice and supported by Bristol Ferry Boat Company who ran a tour of the docks and gave information about the areas history and different types of boat design. The Ferry Boats also supplied VHF radios, life jackets, clearance from the Harbour Master and an enthusiastic crew to help stage the 2011 Hunter Accountants Sail Boat Race as the final event of the day.

Watch the film to see how teams of accountants build and race boats made from corrugated board. Staff had to take turns to gather information from the 'taciturn shipwright's booth', lead and observe their group.  Each boat is decorated with positive observations of what their colleagues bring to the task and to their work in the office.

The activity is open to up to to 40 staff with teams of up to to six coming from one or many businesses. Events can be staged on water or on land and all use fully recyclable materials and the power of the wind.
