Oxford Team Building FAQs

Apart from energisers, most of our corporate team build activities last between 2 – 3 hours. Sometimes there is a tight schedule for an activity and only a limited amount of time is available; if this is the case, we will suggest the best event based on group profile, budget, and brief.

Our Events team always ensure activities can fit around any conference schedule.  Within a day’s conference, often a more fun, light-hearted approach is required by corporates. The event may be to reinforce a company message, to instil collaboration, shared values or indeed energise the group.

We operate events 7 days a week, 365 days of the year, 24 hours a day. Our most popular days for team events are Thursdays and Fridays so do book in advance! We are open during bank holidays (Scotland has some different bank holidays to England for example). There is no price difference whatever day you choose to run event with Team Tactics.

Team building activities are as active as the specific event chosen and to a lesser extent, how energetic each team is. Team building can as active or inactive as required.  For example,

Cocktail Masterclass and Give a Helping Hand – The Hand Project are a more relaxed team activity.

Circus skills workshop, Robot Wars, The Rat Trap, are relatively active that will require some movement of walking, bending down, sitting on the floor.

Wild Wipeout, It’s a Knockout, School Sports Day will require a higher degree of activity.

But do bear in mind, Team Tactics is a corporate provider of team building days out and all games are designed with this type of participant. Got any questions? Call us!

Team activities for the whole office is a common request. Very often, the brief for these types of events are that they are required to tick many boxes in order for all departments in the company to enjoy and to get involved with. This could be for 20 or 250 persons. But from an administrator to an actuary, to a clerk to a CEO, it’s a task to organise an away day and make everybody happy!

You have made it to us, and we can help! Team Tactics has specifically created events that will suit a wide range of staff.

Tasked with providing a team building activity indoors as part of a conference offers clear guidelines to event organisers. With theatre style, delegates will be seated in rows, like the theatre. There is limited movement of delegates, and any event will need to take this into account. The Haka, Drumming, One Voice or Thriller Experience are the perfect fit to this event brief.

Your brief is to provide an engaging, collaborative event with an existing cabaret layout in situ. Consider The Bigger Picture or Around the World. Cabaret seating is seating around round tables, but half of the table is not used, so that all delegates can view the front of the room without having to turn their heads or chairs to view the projector or speaker. This is ideal for event organisers and generally we will use tables and teams.

Our team offer a variety of different philanthropic events, offering team building events to give something back to the community. Corporate Social Responsibility is high on many company agendas and combing it with a team activity provides a double whammy – giving something back to the community whilst at the same time, giving something back to your staff by way of team building.

To witness or create something that will positively impact others makes for a humbling and memorable team experience with a difference. Check out our some of our favourite charity events including Charity Bike Build , Wheels for Walkies and Give a Helping Hand – The Hand Project.

We recommend a minimum group size of 10 people to ensure the best possible experience. However some of our  team activities are suited for larger groups of 30+. Speak to one our event experts if there is a particular event you are interested in. Some of our events can cater for much larger groups of 500+.

We have a selection of events perfect to bring your remote team back together. Designed to encourage connect, team build and motivate your team.
