History tells us that August can be a tough time to keep your team motivated.
The end of financial year frenzy is finished, it’s been a looong, cold winter…and the finish line is not quite in sight just yet.
It’s always a month when corporate Melbourne reaches out to us to help inject a little fun and energy into their team environment.
I thought I’d share some of our favorites with you today:
Human Foosball – get yourself in the game with this real life version of table foosball. Teams of 6 players are strapped to their pole with the ability only to move sideways to reach the ball. Players must work together in cohesion while strapped to their pole with the aim of sending the ball forward to score. It works perfectly as it evens out the skill levels – and it can be run indoors.
Boeing 737 Simulator event – Put yourself in the Captain’s seat with this Boeing 737 Simulator Competition. It’s an exhilarating experience that lets you challenge your colleagues and take charge of the aircraft.
It is based on a Boeing 737-800 and features a life-sized cockpit with stunning, realistic scenery that plays on your senses – making this thrilling experience as close to reality as possible.
Each flight will be Captained by two GT Pilots under the guidance of a Flight Experience Instructor. Right next door is one of our very favourite city bars and we recommend running a cocktail event there whilst your MPT host rotates teams through the simulator next door, then back to the bar. At the conclusion the Flight Experience Instructor will announce the results and issue the winner’s trophies (and loser’s wooden spoons)
Bubble Soccer – brave the elements get some fresh air in the lungs. Teams of four or five go head to head, or bubble on bubble, wearing giant inflatable balls.
Try shooting and scoring, while encased in a bubble and getting bounced around by your colleagues. It is nothing short of chaos but guarantees a lot of laughs and plenty of fodder for chats round the water cooler.
Remote Controlled Racing – How do you get truly unique interactive fun, thrills, spills and a challenge that everyone can be involved in?
Unleash the radio controlled toys! Options are limitless. Teams will be pitted against the clock as they navigate their way through various courses with action a plenty in specialized big jump cars capable of reaching speeds of 100km/h and designed for monster jumps.
There’ll be speed, wheel spinning action, crashes, controversy and more. This event can be set up anywhere, both indoors or out and can be combined with a cocktail party or an outdoor barbecue…the options are limitless.
