From 24-25 January, we were proud to host a large multi activity event with accommodation on site for 43 JPMorgan employees from across Europe and the US.
JPMorgan approached Withinnovation late last year to discuss an event that would take people away from their desks and accentuate the human element of the business with a team spread across numerous locations. We meticulously planned a 2-day activity-based team-building event to their specifications, encouraging friendly competition by creating 8 small teams, each of which would tackle a variety of exciting and unique indoor and outdoor activities including quad biking, pistol shooting and ‘pub sports’. The aim of the activities was to encourage group-work and enhanced communication, as well as to give the participants an experience they wouldn’t forget.
The event began with guests checking into a hand-picked hotel, where they completed a variety of team presentations and discussion topics before enjoying some downtime at a drinks reception followed by dinner. After dinner activities ranged from a team based quiz to pub games including pool, air hockey, table tennis, table football, darts and much more.
After a good night’s rest, the guests enjoyed a wholesome breakfast before attending a morning session of presentations before heading outside to gear up for a series of exhilarating activities that included rifle shooting, archery, rage buggies, power turns, pistol shooting, cross bows, quad biking and Segway racing. While the storms on the previous day had provided a muddy backdrop to some of these activities, the sun soon came out and every participant immersed themselves in the experience, giving it their full effort and creating a truly vibrant environment.
As the day came to a close, the winning team members were awarded with Withinnovation medals after their final dinner before commencing an entertaining evening of more pub sports and a casino style event. The event attracted extremely positive feedback from the guests who described the event as ‘fantastic’ and commented on how the varied and fun the activities were and how well organised every aspect of the offsite was.
We had immense fun organising and overseeing this 2-day event for JPMorgan and are absolutely thrilled that they not only enjoyed the experience but took from it valuable teambuilding outcomes that can be implemented into their business going forward.
