Team Building Outdoors

Whatever your group size or objectives, whether in-person or virtual - we deliver memorable shared experiences!

Outdoor Team Building Activities

Aside from being energising, fun and engaging, outdoor team building is a great way for your team to bond, re-energise and relax outside the confines of the workplace. An outdoor activity offers a chance to break out of the routine of a conference or meeting, in favour of getting active, creative or competitive in the great outdoors. It can entail anything from a race to a game show-style competition, or puzzle-solving challenges.

The change in environment and shared game or activity helps to disengage your teams from their screens, putting an emphasis on communication and collaboration to foster vital skill development. KDM Events can help you choose the right event to achieve your objectives and make the most of the sunshine!

We have a wide range of outdoor team-building activities to choose from, for a variety of requirements and team sizes. We pride ourselves on our ability to deliver unforgettable experiences; this is why we have been an award-winning event management company for five years in a row.

If you’re worried about the unpredictable British weather, we’ve got you covered. Our optional Wet Weather Contingency gives you the option to move your activity indoors if the weather is not as you hoped. This will help keep your team warm, dry and in high spirits, without compromising on your goal for the day.

As a supplier to the industry, we own all of our equipment and have our own team of experienced Event Managers to deliver your activity or event. This allows you to maintain more control over the quality, delivery and price of the end product.

How outdoor activities improve team building skills

Outdoor activities take place in a completely separate space to the office. The change of scenery helps take your employees away from the rigidity of the office environment and the confines of their computer screens. This then provides the ideal conditions for improving interpersonal relationships. Outdoor team building events can help you leverage this unique situation to build on skills and team qualities, such as:

  • Communication
  • Interpersonal relationships, providing a common activity to discuss 
  • Reduced stress levels, supporting employee wellbeing
  • Team spirit, motivation and cooperation
  • Trust between team members 
  • Observation 
  • Maintains focus 
  • Strategic planning 
  • Analytical skills and decision-making 
  • Problem-solving
  • Collaboration and teamwork, leading to improved workflow 
  • Creativity and innovative thinking
  • Use and allocation of resources and prioritisation
  • Time management 
  • Delegation and leadership skills 
  • Confidence to share ideas within the team

Outdoor team building is not just beneficial to your whole team, it can also encourage individual development, inspiring confidence and a sense of valued contribution. It can also help to get your employees out of their comfort zone to explore their personal abilities and go past their perceived limits. 

Ultimately, a shared outdoor team-building activity helps individuals feel a sense of community and involvement, which helps to increase productivity and contributions to collaborative workplace projects in the long run.
