A taste of things to come 

May 5, 2017

In the increasingly solitary realm of today’s working environment, event co-ordinators at Wynyard Hall have cooked up the perfect plan to refresh and reconnect your workforce.

The luxury North East hotel has added corporate team building to its menu, with the introduction of a series of workshops, including ‘Cocktails and Canapés’ and ‘King of the BBQ’.

Many of us spend a greater proportion of our waking hours with our work colleagues than with friends and family, and yet the pace and pressure of the modern working environment means we are often rendered strangers in the office, with team bonding falling short of the agenda.

However, countless academic studies have highlighted the positive impact of a happy and unified workforce on company productivity, and organisers at Wynyard Hall believe they have mixed up a terrific tonic for office morale.

Set amid 150 acres of historic parkland, Wynyard Hall proves the perfect remedy for those burdensome office blues. Escape the grey Monday monotony and discover the lush green of the landscaped grounds, or experience the serenity of The Gardens, home to more than 3000 delicate roses, renowned for their therapeutic and calming properties.

An essential component of any successful modern business, Wynyard Hall offers bespoke team building events of all sizes. Perfect for all companies and business fields, a dedicated event co-ordinator will design an exclusive package, tailored to your needs and business goals.

For example, you can take part in a Show Stopping Cocktails and Canapés workshop (prices start from £37.50+VAT per person) presented within Wynyard Hall’s inspiring Glasshouse. A culinary masterclass led by leading mixologists and expert chefs, you and your colleagues can reconnect in an intimate and elegant environment, while discovering the secrets to amazing aperitifs. This informal and relaxed setting, centred on the shared pleasures of food and drink, allows team building participants to engage in genuine conversations, while learning a new skill and sharing a delectable spread; the perfect ingredients for establishing valuable, satisfying and lasting working relationships.

Or, why not challenge your co-workers to become King of the BBQ for a contrasting morale-building experience? Divided into competing teams, participants work alongside a Wynyard Hall chef in a bid to prepare the best multi-course meal.

Spirited rivalry is sure to nourish and impassion the most demoralised of workforces, while the additional competitive factor encourages colleagues to showcase crucial business skills, such as leadership, delegation and creativity.

Groups can then reconvene to unwind and indulge, in a charming and congenial setting.
