6 Team Building Ideas for Your Next Corporate Event

A healthy workplace is one where every team member feels understood, valued, and connected. How can you achieve this? Team building activities are an effective way to cultivate a culture of communication, collaboration, and mutual respect. And who said corporate team building had to be all seminars and PowerPoint presentations? Not us! 

At Venue Crew, our expert Venue Specialists have booked hundreds of businesses for their company team building events. So, we’ve selected our favourite ideas that guarantee a fun and exciting bonding experience for everyone.

1. Workshops and learning experiences

Arrange workshops that focus on building skills that are relevant to your team’s professional development or personal interests. For example, a public speaking workshop can be an excellent opportunity for team members to improve their communication skills while promoting a culture of growth and continuous improvement. For more engaging subjects, consider cocktail making, coffee art, or a cooking class. These activities aren’t only educational but also encourage teamwork and skill development. 

2. Trivia night

Trivia night is all about having fun, working together, and enjoying great food – it’s the perfect activity to get closer as a team. It’s also a fun way for team members to showcase their knowledge, as well as learn new facts, and strengthen team unity in a relaxed atmosphere. 

3. Murder Mystery Dinner

A murder mystery dinner is a unique way to build an engaging team bonding experience. Assigning roles to each team member to solve a mystery encourages communication, creative thinking, and teamwork. To create an even more engaging event, you should consider incorporating a theme and having a professional facilitator run the game. These additions not only make the murder mystery dinner more than just a game; they become a valuable team exercise in a fun, immersive setting. 

4. DIY arts and craft projects

Encourage your team members to unleash their inner creativity with DIY crafts and arts activities. Whether it’s a paint-and-sip session or a pottery workshop, a hands-on project offers a therapeutic break while allowing each person to show their creative side. In addition, the final result – like a painted canvas or a pottery piece – can be a cool memento of the fun time they had.

5. Wine and beer tasting

Wine and beer tasting events are both fun and educational, allowing the participants to explore and enjoy new flavours. From learning about wine making or brewing to participating in a friendly competition to identify tasting notes, wine and beer tasting offers a perfect mix of entertainment and engagement. It’s an ideal setting for teams to relax, communicate, and strengthen their relationships in a sophisticated yet casual atmosphere.

6. Talent show

Organising a talent show as a team building activity offers a unique and dynamic way to bring your team members together. It provides them a chance to showcase their hidden talents – whether it’s singing, dancing, playing an instrument, or juggling – in a supportive and encouraging environment. In addition, stepping into the spotlight can boost your team members’ confidence and foster a deeper appreciation for each other’s skills and interests beyond their professional roles, all while enjoying an entertaining experience.
