Our customers say:

“I just wanted to say a MASSIVE THANK YOU to you and your team for the brilliant event you have put together for us on Friday last week.

Although it’s now been a few days, people are still talking about the day spent in Brogdale and the feedback I have received has been overwhelmingly positive – words are now spreading fast on campus and some people are even talking about next year!…

Despite the hot weather conditions, people have really enjoyed all tasks;  especially the Scavenger Challenge which as an exercise, really brought the teams together. Our Department is made out of 70+ members of staff, spread over 3 different sites and although some people might talk to each other over the phone, with turn overs etc, people don’t necessarily get to meet or know each other and I have to say that since our away day,  I have seen people  interact much more and speak to each other. So just for that reason, I think this has been a very successful day!

Big thank you also to the actors and activity facilitators who were really fantastic and kept us entertained all day!”
