The time for planning an annual Christmas party is upon us – so what are your options this year? Dinner? Drinks? Or, perhaps, something with a little more excitement to it…?
Well, that’s exactly where Outdoor Living comes in. We’re in the business of organising corporate events with a twist – events that incorporate a fun, teambuilding element that will inject plenty of fun, laughter and cheer while also creating brilliant memories for your team.
“The whole idea behind having a team building event is to really add value to your Christmas do,” says Outdoor Living director Danica Fava. “Besides the usual festive food and drink, an event of this sort will ensure everyone networks and gets to know one another better – which will be a huge bonus once you’ll be back in the office to start the new work year.”
Plus, with work schedules getting busier and busier, Christmas is often the only time of year when a team can afford to take a little time off – making it the ideal opportunity to combine a party with something that will have long-term value. “The results benefit both the employees and the company, while adding a good dose of Christmas spirit,” Danica continues.
The really good news is that these sorts of events are very flexible and can be completely tailored to your needs. From indoor to outdoor, and events for a huge group to something more intimate, there’s a team building event to match.
These are some of our favourite Christmas-themed corporate events:
- Christmas iChallenge – we have given our very popular iChallenge a festive twist as teams use their iPad as their personal assistant to race around Valletta whilst completing various Christmassy checkpoints.
- The Flat Out Sleigh Ride – which asks each team to turn a flatpack sleigh into a working one, encouraging project management, resource management, and time management.
- Santa’s Toy Factory – in which teams focus on festive efficiency and creativity to help a child in need.
Finally, one of the added benefits is that you can also turn your event into a milestone within your corporate social responsibility calendar, just like the final one above. Other options include Go Team Go Give and Horses for Causes, both of which are ideal if your team members want to have fun this Christmas, while also giving back to a cause they believe in.
So why not consider something a little different for your Christmas staff party this year? By adding a team building element, you’re guaranteed to make it more fun and memorable than ever before! Plus, through our event management sister company PowerHouse and our extended network of contacts, we’re on-hand to plan everything from the venue, to the audio-visual requirements and the food.
