BlueSky Experiences organised a team building day for BAM PPP one year and the client was so impressed they wanted to come back for another event the following year. BAM PPP were looking to organise their annual overnight conference and team building event again with BlueSky.
BlueSky were responsible for the organisation and management of the entire event. They organised for the BAM PPP team to hold a company meeting in the morning at Gleddoch House Hotel near Greenock. This hotel was recommended by BlueSky due to its close proximity to the client's office as well as being an excellent venue for an event of this style.
It was very important to BAM PPP that the team building activities within this event was creative, collaborative and inclusive, allowing everyone in the team to be fully involved regardless of their age of physical ability.
The Big Picture team-working activity was chosen by the client to not only provide a collaborative and inclusive event but also reinforce their business strategy and key messages. The Big Picture is a creative and interactive activity that teams work through to complete a visual representation of the client's vision or strategy. BlueSky design and develop the image prior to the event, and the team will have no idea until the activity is complete. On this occasion the image included a carbon footprint, a globe and two building projects that BAM PPP had ben involved in. This image was fundamental to their key message in creating "Excellence in Sustainable Public Private Partnerships".
The day was rounded off with a gala dinner at Gleddoch House Hotel, organised by BlueSky.
Morven Wylie from BAM PPC commented:
"We were very pleased with how BlueSky Experiences handled our last event so decided we would use them again for this year. What really impressed us about BlueSky was their professionalism and speed of response to our initial enquiry. James came out to visit us and discuss the various options available and thereafter offered a one-to-one service."
"They took care of all the details of managing the event - it made the whole process very simple for us. Their recommended team building activity was great and it really fitted in well with our business. The BlueSky staff did a great job of integrating people and getting them working together, which really made the team building event work. The venue chosen was appropriate and the duration of the event was just right. The BlueSky team were friendly, professional, prompt and a pleasure to deal with. We will definitely be working with them again."
