Unusual Team Building Activities

We specialise in unusual team building, team building that revolves predominately around music.

Here are our reasons why we are the best at what we do!  

  • Music is our absolute passion and when you’re so passionate about something you care about it and give it the attention needed to create successful team building events.
  • We recognise the power of music and how it can bring people together, to unite them, to make them laugh, smile but also teaches them concepts without them feeling like they are learning.

Our unusual team building activities are more popular than ever because they are so much fun and they deliver a session that allows us to drive home your key message or reach a required goal whilst creating great memories for everyone.

As we all know some of the traditional team building ideas have become cliched and many companies are now looking for more unusual team building activities for their corporate events. Something fresh and original that gets everyone excited and involved.

That is why we created our company Rock and Roll Experience to deliver fun and different musical team building events for everyone.

It was such a pleasure to work with you all, the experience was fantastic and we have had nothing but widely positive feedback.” Claire Paterson – Retail Support Assistant UK & Ireland -Tiffany & Co.

All of our musical team building events are easily adapted to deliver within any budget, group size and time frame. We can present the events anywhere whether it’s your office, a smart hotel, a village hall or a restaurant. We just need some space and an audience that is open to creating something special. In fact most of the time the audience isn’t even open to it at first so our expert facilitators warm them up and get them on-board.

The teams are guided by professional musicians and seasoned facilitators to find solutions to challenges and work together towards the common musical goal.

Fun team building activities

Fun team building activities do exist!

In fact we are so convinced by the statement “fun team building” that we have created a whole company around it.

If we asked you to sum up your past experience of corporate team building events, do you recall them with fondness? Possibly not.

In fact many clients that we work with tell us horror stories of past experiences that were dull, uninspiring and considered a waste of time by everybody involved. And as a result they were anxious about booking the next one because they didn’t want their colleagues aiming more displeasure at them!

Many of us have been forced to spend hours participating in mind numbing activities which often fail to build stronger relationships with our colleagues. In fact they often spread frustration because we know that inbox is filling up, the ‘to do’ list is not being chipped away at and we’re wasting time being bored without seeing any real benefit.

Fun Team building

Consequently, team building activities are often met with scepticism and are frequently stereotyped as being cringy, dull, clichéd and out of date.

But fear not, the Rock & Roll Experience is here to help. And we specialise in fun team building events!

We take the time to listen to our customers to find out exactly what they want the event to achieve. Are they looking for riotous fun to reward their team? Are they trying to reinforce a key message? Whatever it is, we listen to that and work with them to incorporate it and build our event around it.

We find that every organisation has a different need and requirement. Every client knows what makes their guys and girls tick. Every work group thrives on different things. At the Rock and Roll Experience our events coordinators always ensure that they establish the company’s needs and tailor each event to meet that requirement. We always ask our customers what their goals are and what they wish to achieve and take away from our events.

“Seems we will be calling on you again real soon. The fact we want to use you again says it all!!” Claire Chilton – GE Aviation

But the thing is, whether people just want a riotous jaunt or have a serious element that needs reinforcing, we will still have huge fun and create memories that will be remembered long into the future. All our events are music based and create a great experience. We don’t just run a session that you can be a part of. It’s a proper rock and roll experience. And who doesn’t like a bit of rock and roll in their life?

Our friendly and personal approach enables us to work closely with our clients to ensure that we deliver an engaging, unforgettable and fun team building experience that really connects you to your team and drives the workforce in a positive way to promote team work and unity in your workplace. Weather you are looking for just a few hours, half a day or a whole day, the Rock and Roll experience can cater for any need.

Team building checklist – team building planning tips

Simple Team Building Checklist

 Team building checklist tips to help you plan a team building event

If you are looking to plan a team building event for your company, you want to ensure that you book something that is fun and engaging but also fulfils its purpose and has a positive effect on everyone involved. Here are a few simple steps for you to think about before you begin your research with our team building checklist.

Team building checklist, team building, events, corporate events1. Identify company needs

The first question you should ask yourself is, “What needs to be improved in the corporation and what do you want from the team building activity?” If you can establish this in the first instance then you can target your search for activities on the most effective options to achieve the desired result. You need to ensure you are aware of the aims and outcomes of the chosen team building event before you start researching the different types of events.

2. Budget

Most team building companies are flexible with their pricing and can change the event to help accommodate you. So it does help to be forth coming with the amount you are willing to spend so that they can help you find an activity that fits in with your costings. Most team building companies have a variety of different activities and events with various pricing levels so there is something for everyone.

3. Venue

Perhaps you have a favourite luxurious hotel in London or, depending on the event you choose, you may wish to have the activity take place at your premises. In a lot of cases the team building company can organise the venue for you or are happy to just guide you to get the right venue and ensure you have thought about the logistics for the day. Just remember to think about the size of rooms, layout,  location, accessibility for staff and potential AV equipment.

4. Agenda

Its always good when planning something for your staff to write up an agenda and programme for the day. It will help prevent you from forgetting anything but also these types of events do tend to run over so its good to have a timescale of what you would like to happen and when you would like your team building to start and finish. The team building company will be there to ensure their part of the day runs smoothly but in between you may wish to have an inspirational guest speaker or a member of your management team talk about the success of the company and his or her views for the future. You will have lunch, tea breaks, etc so all of this should be taken into consideration prior to the booking of an event so you know how the day or days are going to run.

rock and roll experience 5. Talk to your staff

This is very important. If employees are asked for ideas then they need to be dealt with constructively. If the ideas are dismissed or ignored it tends to make people feel they have wasted their time or are not a valued staff member. Everyone will have different views on what they consider to be beneficial for the company and what they think will be a good team building event. Depending on how big your company is you may wish to have a few smaller meetings with each team leader to establish everyone’s views and ideas. You can then take 3 of these options and request quotes from each company you have selected.

6. Open your mind

Finally be open minded because you may find that the majority of your employees want to go for something totally different to what you expected. But that’s ok because it’s predominantly down to them and if your staff are happy then you should be happy. Team building is an extremely important and vital part of any company. In recent years it has become more popular and has been proven to increase employee moral and positivity, which in turn will have a huge impact on the success of your company.

We hope our Team building checklist has been of help to you and will help you to book an amazing team building activity for your staff. If you would like to have more information about the events on our website then please Get in touch today for a no obligation quote.

Are you a Walking Dead Fan?

Love The Walking Dead? Bring the zombie vibe to your team building event!

walking dead, zombies, thriller, team building, dance, music, corporate eventWith season 7 of the highly addictive television programme The Walking Dead being back on our screens, we are sure you are enjoying this blood thirsty knuckle ride of show! And for that reason we feel it’s right time to mention our zombie themed team building event.

Our thriller dance team building event is fun and energising and is ideal if you are looking for something a little different to bring your work colleagues together. Using professional choreographers, we teach you the iconic moves from the famous Thriller dance routine before bringing it all together to learn it for a full performance. Absolutely no dance experience is required and even those with two left feet and no rhythm will still find it easy to join in.

Then once you have mastered the dance its time to transform you all into some authentic gruesome zombies. We will give you a short tutorial on how to become a realistic zombie but you might not need help if you are already a Walking Dead fan. We then supply you with some nice blood splattered costumes so you can truly get into character, we also have Michael’s iconic red and black track suit so someone can become the legend himself! If you have a CEO or manager with a good sense of fun then it can work really well for them to play the part of Jacko.

If you want this as a shorter energiser session, then we can avoid the zombie make-up and get right down to it with the dance routine. Whatever you decide it will be a unique event that will be remembered in years to come.

So whether you want this as a smaller group affair for two hours with zombie makeovers, or a 30 minute energiser at a large conference, this Thriller team building event will leave your audience laughing and pumped up with excitement.

“We are often invited to PA/EA functions and I can safely say this was the best event I’ve been to in my 7 years as a PA. The event was well organised, the staff were superb and the activities were all of a high standard. Kindest Regards, Charlotte.”

Why not film the fun? Our film crew can capture all the fun in high definition and edit it for you to keep those zombie memories for all to enjoy.

Why competition at work is good

Don’t be afraid of competition at work

They say there’s nothing like a little friendly competition at work to bring people together. After hosting so many team building events and experiencing team building activities, we have proof to back that up. People love a little friendly competition, so much so that most of our Team Building Activities have some competitive elements.

Competition at work drives us to do better

Rock & Roll Gameshow

Competition works as a motivator because it pushes us to exceed and do better. Not only are we driven to exceed our own capabilities, but also those of our teammates and coworkers as well. Friendly competition in a relaxed setting, encourages people to work together and to spend time together, creating social bonds which strengthen teamwork. Taking it a step further, competition fosters cooperation, which is the backbone of good teamwork.

“One man can be a crucial ingredient on a team, but one man cannot make a team. -Kareem Abdul-Jabbar”

We all know how easy it can be to become jealous and in some cases people can take it to heart if they are losing, which can cause bad feeling. Sore losers can easily spoil the fun, while bragging winners can also ruin a joyous atmosphere. How do you keep the event friendly whilst still encouraging people to compete against each other?

Some of our programs feature some kind of contest, for example our gameshow event is structured around the idea that competition brings out the best in people, plus there are several rounds where everyone can win something. Our rock band experience sees people taught to play an instrument and then rehearse in a band before competing in the battle of the bands. Our facilitators are specially trained to keep the games friendly and exciting, They’ll make sure bragging winners or sore losers won’t spoil the event for anyone. All our events are fun and engaging, so that everyone walks away feeling like a winner! Why not get in contact today to discuss our range of events and see what would suit your company.
