CREATING PRICELESS MOMENTS FOR BUSY TEAMS.
F rom business adventures in Norway to beautiful outdoor dining for groups closer to home at Spitalfields City Farm, I love to work with companies to build company culture through table-based events. I really enjoy the challenge of coming up with creative ways to get your team around the table.
I think there is an art to creating an environment where your team get to strengthen relationships in a way that feels natural, inclusive and fun. Seeking to steer away from it feeling forced team bonding, the goal is to create a space which enables intentional conversation and facilitates creativity away from the busyness of the daily to-do list
Company culture is a real buzz word, but it can be broken down. Aside from the nuts and bolts of a job, I think people need two things from their work:
- to feel appreciated and valued
- to have some sort of community.
Both of these are incredibly simple but also notoriously hard to achieve on a genuine level. One way of achieving this is through events. Too often company events are missed opportunities where not enough thought and attention is put into planning the event (despite good intentions) and it ends up being a last minute scramble.
Whether it's a one-off event with a specific purpose, or a series of fortnightly lunchtime speakers, I have a wide range of experience organising events that have created priceless moments for teams, and had a positive impact on their culture.
I have used events such as…
- It’s A Knockout afternoon of inflatable fun
- A ‘Breakfast in Bread’ bespoke breakfast
- Chalk + Cheese life drawing evenings
- A Mad Hatters dinner party
- Lunch + a petting experience at a city farm
- Pedalo + Pimms summer party in the park
- A team weekend away in Cornwall
- A Yoga On The Strings evening
…to bring teams together in a fun and creative way.
I pride myself on spending money efficiently, thinking slightly outside of the box and paying great attention to detail.
