Calling all Small Businesses

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.”

Corporate Team Building At Merribrook Gets Creative

Team building activities in Perth and across Western Australia have just got a little more creative.

Introducing Merribrooks Creative Team Art Workshop.

Discover the depth of your teams creativity and talent with an art workshop at your next teambuilding day.

From a blank canvas to a creative piece of art, teams experience the fun of working together to create a masterpiece. There is a role for all to contribute and overcome the daunting prospect of putting paint onto canvas. The results are surprisingly excellent and have often been framed for the office wall.

Our Art facilitators have extensive experience working with corporate groups to challenge their creativity, have fun and uncover a wealth of talent in the teams.

Working in teams, participants are given basic instructions in the use of the materials and ways to create different effects on the canvas . Preliminary sketches and ideas representing a theming topic, team values or future vision are put onto canvas by the team, to create the painting. A large team may create one very long art piece with smaller teams completing their section of the canvas and integrating with the team on each side.

A great journey for any team. Book your creative experience today!
