Indoor Team Building Events

If you have a tight schedule for your meeting or conference, holding your team event indoors enables you to have a fast turnaround giving you better use of your available time. With the UK's unpredictable climate and a large number of event venues having little or no outdoor space for activity events there are many advantages to holding your event indoors.

KDM has developed a range of events designed specifically with this in mind. These will keep the team within your conference and meeting room - and will keep you well away from the elements!

Outdoor Team Building Events

If you wish to take a fresh air break to re-energise and relax as part of your conference or meeting’ KDM can work with you to choose the right event to achieve your objectives ... and make the most of the sunshine!

If however you would like the option to switch indoors if the weather does not do as you hoped then our optional Wet Weather Contingency will keep you and your team in the warm and dry.

Ice Breakers and Conference Energisers

Ice breakers are a great way to get people talking to each other, put a group at ease and build trust whether at a small meeting or a large seminar. Each ice breaker is designed to complement your conference programme to ensure that it delivers the maximum benefit.

Invigorate your guests, give them the opportunity to benefit from a break in the conference schedule, refocus their concentration and get to know their colleagues in a cooperative environment – with a Conference Energiser. This is simply a short, sharp cooperative activity designed to get your delegates on their feet, energise them and put their concentration back on track.

Whether it be Indoor, Outdoor, an Energiser or an Icebreaker - for a huge range of options please contact us for the inspiration you need and to see an indication of the many options on offer. You can also browse our most popular events above.

  • Working as a Team

    What is Team Building?

    Team building is interaction among members of work teams to learn better how each member thinks and works. Unfortunately, in today's practice, the focus has been misinterpreted. The key phrase here is "to learn better how each member thinks and works". Activity events therefore should go beyond the idea of an away day. They should allow for learning about how each member of the team thinks and works in relation to the workplace and to each other. However, some companies today simply use corporate activity events to simply ‘encourage’ people to work together rather than to learn about how each team member actually thinks and behaves.

    The common message inherent in most team events is "you must all learn to work as a team". A successful company needs to do more - they need to provide a structured opportunity to help team members learn more deeply about how other individuals operate in the workplace.

    What are The Benefits of Team Building Activities?

    KDM's events will help you to:

    • Use conference ice breakers to energise your meeting
    • Use a team event to reward performance
    • Deliver your corporate training
    • Aid team communication through team exercises
    • Add sparkle to your conference events
    • Develop communication in your management team
    • As a catalyst in building your new team
    • Boost productivity through team development
    • Have a successful conference break-out session
    • Use a team away day to reward your team
    • Have an activity session as part of your management conference

    Building a Successful Team

    A tailor-made team building event will help in the team development process by taking some time away from the workplace to slow things right down. Through discussion, brain storming, game play, role play and goal setting, you can sort out problems, put forward new ideas, plan the future, look at the team's purpose, vision and mission and learn more about each other as people. Subsequent to the event team members will enjoy a fresh perspective, achieve a sense of focus, build confidence and prepare for the real "game" ahead.

    A well-considered activity event has a positive effect on the morale, motivation, confidence and effectiveness of the team and its individual members and this immediately transfers to the workplace. Each event should be created from a specific brief and be tailor-made by working closely with your company to ensure the most appropriate programme.

    Tailored specifically to each group, KDM’s team building events are designed to help create and nurture successful, professional, productive and motivated teams.

    Team Building Ideas from KDM

    Every company has individual team building requirements which require a solution tailored to their unique needs. For this reason, we have a wide portfolio of proven events and activities. After a discussion of your objectives and the Learning Points you wish to draw out from your corporate event we will produce an individual solution that meets your requirements. If required, our event manager will work with you in a post-event feedback session to draw out from the group the learning points and their application within your team.
