“I’d like to see you do it in eighty days!” claimed Mr Stuart to Phileas Fogg. This was the very moment that Fogg was challenged to circumnavigate the planet in the classic adventure novel, ‘Around the World in Eighty Days’, by Jules Verne. Almost 145 years since its publication, not only has Mark Beaumont captured the same spirit of adventure, but so has Quest and the 450+ employees from one of the leading companies in the insurance industry.

Over the course of a dynamic weekend, Quest has once again executed a team building event for the hundreds. Working with one of the world’s biggest insurers, the 9th Team Walk Challenge took place at Elveden Centre Parcs. To the confusion of many, this year’s theme was Pointless. No, not as in a futile event, but the popular BBC One TV show!

Team building is what Quest specialises in, however it’s not often that a client calls and actually asks us to deliver a session for which they actually want to have Working as a Team as its title and very simple core objective . This was one of those occasions and as you’ll see below it was a most interesting session.

The turn of September signifies beginnings and transitions into new and exciting opportunities. For the 32 Graduates joining IMI this year, it marks the end of an era in education and the start of a career in the working world. For the third year running, Quest has delivered team development and training for the enthusiastic and diverse group of new employees at one of the UK’s major engineering companies. The event took place at their offices as part of their induction fortnight.

Team building doesn’t always have to be meticulously structured to achieve the desired results. Occasionally simply bringing a team together away from the workplace and providing a relaxed setting in which to socialise and have a little fun in one another’s company, works very well too.
