Ideas for Maritime and City themed corporate team-building activities

Team-building activities are designed for group members to strengthen their relationships, improve communication and explore new ways of working together. A well-designed team-building programme can also reward employees and achieve company aims and objectives.

Are you looking for an innovative and exciting team-building activity to offer your staff members and clients in 2017?

The Maritime and City themed team-building packages developed by Trinity House in Tower Hill, are new and exciting products designed for groups looking to incorporate a strong messages and a team-building element into their corporate event, such as setting priorities, problem solving, decision making and teamwork.

One of the most elegant and historic venues in Central London, The Trinity House in Tower Hill, is famous for its maritime history that goes back to 1794, when it was first built. Today The House is a Charity set up to improve the state of navigation in our waters and to provide support and training for mariners. The maritime theme is also strongly incorporated into the venue through carefully selected furniture, décor and pictures, to reflect venue’s story.

To strengthen the Maritime and City theme even further and offer the corporate market an innovative product, the venue partnered with The Solent Rib Charter, palette catering and Wildgoose to bring you the two following corporate team-building packages:

Thames Rives corporate bonding power boat package

The half day incentive programme will start in the morning with a light continental breakfast in Trinity House, afterwards delegates will head towards St. Katherine’s Dock, just short walking distance from the venue. They will be greeted by the experienced guides from Solent Rib Charter to brief them and provide protective clothing including breathable oilskins for warmth and delegates are ready for a thrilling power boat ride on the River Thames! The boats are weather resilient and events can be run throughout the year.

The Solent Rib Charter can accommodate up to eight guests per boat and while the duration of the ride is flexible, most opt for a two-hour zip through Central London and/or to the Thames Barrier and back, running past major London Landmarks, such as London Bridge, The Shard, House of Parliament, London Eye, Docklands and The O2 Arena, experiencing London like never before.

After the thrilling boat ride participants then return to Trinity House to wind down and enjoy seasonal three course lunch created by the caterer palette (Such as Basil Panna Cotta for starter, followed by Gressingham Duck Breast as a main with Elderflower Tart for dessert), and accompanying wines and/or champagnes will be served by uniformed staff.

Costs: The Solent Rib Trinity House package is charged at a (non-negotiable) £1,988 + VAT (i.e. £248.50 per person at full capacity) per boat and includes exclusive venue hire and the two – three hour ride (irrespective of final numbers). The breakfast and post-Blast lunch is charged separately starting from an additional £167 + VAT per person for a minimum of eight participants. (Fewer numbers can be catered for a slightly increased charge).

All bookings are subject to availability and general booking terms and conditions of Trinity House, Solent Rib Charters, and palette.

The half day corporate treasure hunt is designed to showcase City and Tower Hill landmarks and historic points of interest. Suitable for groups from 20 participants and up to as many as 130/180 – the maximum seating/standing capacity of the House, the objective is to strengthen team bonding through challenging and entertaining team activities.

Participants will meet and depart from Trinity House in groups of five, armed only with tablets as their guides. They will be given questions and asked to document the locations on camera, both taking photos and video whilst exploring the locations. Team that earns more points wins the challenge and will be awarded champions at an awards ceremony reception and/ or dinner back at Trinity House, provided by one of the 12 approved caterers. Finally, the ceremony will typically include images and video footage taken by the teams during the day resulting in an often hilarious event finale.

Costs: the half-day package is priced at £40 per person + VAT for a minimum of 20 participants and up to as many as 130/180, the maximum seating/standing capacity of the House. The package can only be booked in conjunction with a confirmed booking at the House which is offering 10% off published venue hire rates in support.
