EY Senior Team Meeting – London
EY were planning their annual senior management team meeting for industry and wanted some help with the thread of the event and some fun, focused team builds during the 3-day event.
Onyx got involved in the early stages of the event so helped advise on the venue that was selected. Delegates were flying in from all around the world so the venue had to be close to London’s airports but the quality of the venue needed to be high. The Grove in Watford was a natural choice.
On the arrivals day Onyx arranged a cocktail master class as a team build and ice breaker as it had been awhile since all the delegates had been together, and some did not know each other. In randomly assigned teams they all had the chance to make their own cocktails, it was light hearted fun and let everyone relax into the event and make new connections. This was followed by a country style BBQ buffet in the Walled Garden which made a beautiful back drop to the dinner.
The following day was a tight agenda full of meetings, Onyx put on a ‘tangles’ team build after lunch to rejuvenate everyone. They were put into groups of 5-6 and then tangled together, there were a couple of ways that they could free themselves, but they had to work as a team to break free.
On the last day Onyx arranged a iPad treasure hunt for everyone in the grounds of The Grove, 10 questions were related to EY and the meetings that had taken place over the past couple of days, the others were fun questions and photo challenges.
The EY team enjoyed a successful three days of meetings with team builds added into the mix, a good balance of focused meetings and inter-team networking opportunities. Onyx look forward to working with EY again in the future.
