Take advantage of the warm weather to hold your team away day in the Great Outdoors. Taking your team into nature has lots of benefits.
An away day in the wild builds camaraderie and team spirit
A few weeks ago we ran an away day for the UK Green Building Council, a passionate and busy organisation who advocate for a better built environment.
We got their team of twenty to connect around the fire, take an inspiring tour of the Brighton Earthship, and do some whittling and foraging.
Usually based in an office in London, the activities and time together in nature really worked - Julie Hirigoyen their CEO wrote that the day gave them a “palpable sense of calm and togetherness which is still with us a week later.”
At School of the Wild, we offer team days that mix activities like foraging, whittling, and making fires, with conversation and reflection, to bring you all together and allow for meaningful connections to unfold.
It means your team can have fun and also go a bit deeper - the activities, the positive stories that are seeded, and the shared time together, create and reinforce the type of bonds that take years to build in an office.
Spending time together in nature has other special benefits:
Don't take our word for it, Nick Hiller from the Academy of Medical Sciences wrote, “The wild workshop enabled [us] to think about the future in ways that would never have been possible in a standard meeting room.”
Book an away day in the wild for your team. We have packages to suit - with half, full, and three-quarter days available. Read more here, or
