Do you run a small business and think your team is too small to consider team building?

Well here at Merribrook we work with small groups of 5 – 10 people on a regular basis.

Being a small business ourselves we understand your need for a return on investment from your team building session which is why we work with you to design a program to best suit your individual business objectives, outcomes and budget.

A great experience for a small team on a small budget is our team games and challenges session combined with our creative art session. You only need 2 – 4 hours to offer your team an opportunity to have some fun, possibly get off site (or we can come to your premises) and get to know each other better through a range of different activities.

In the past 2 weeks we have run two of these programs.

For our first Perth based client the objective was to tap into the creative side of the group in preparation for a brainstorming and strategy meeting following the session.

Our other group was looking to do something completely different from the normal working day (accounting), outside the office (at beautiful Merribrook Retreat, Margaret River) and involving a lot of fun.

Both sessions were a great success. The team building challenges provided a great start to the session with groups seeing the positive benefits of applying open communication skills, brainstorming and listening to ideas. And then the art…we believe beauty is in the eye of the beholder and regardless of the outcome of the groups master piece, proudly hanging it on the wall provides a wonderful memory of the day and a bit of a giggle and great talking point for customers and suppliers alike.

So if you think your team could benefit from a bit of fun and building better relationships by doing something different, this program is highly recommended.

Some quotes from our happy past clients:

“Thank you very much for putting together an awesome art workshop for us. It got the accountants using their creative side which was great fun. Now we need to agree on where we are going to display the artwork! I look forward to working with Merribrook again in the near future.”

Barbara Fitzgerald, Senior Business Advisor, Alcoa, 11 Sept, 2009.

“We have had nothing but great responses from everyone involved in the event. They were all extremely impressed with yourself and the organization of the event and the fun factor. Many were surprised by how much they enjoyed it and have advised that they would and will recommend it to both other managers within Schlumberger, but also to clients they talk to.”
