Our Brief

To deliver our client’s key business messages in a fun, engaging, memorable and impactful way – while encouraging delegates, from diverse areas of the business, to bond and develop more positive relationships.

Once delivered, all insights and learnings would empower Regional Sales Managers to motivate their respective teams to facilitate improved performance across the business.

The Event

For this landmark event, instead of using a team building activity simply as a supporting mechanism for the conference content… a bespoke filmmaking team building event was used to deliver the entire solution.

Instead of punctuating the formalities of an orthodox-type conference with team building as an energiser or break out activity, we developed the entire content to be delivered as an integrated team build, as the spotlight was turned on the delegates to create their own content.

The 140 delegates were challenged to create a series of short movies around a popular movie genre, from Austin Powers to Pirates of the Caribbean, Harry Potter to Grease – each with the objective to communicate a specific business-critical message.

  • The filmmaking challenge provided the platform to deliver a series of specific messages in a fun and engaging way.
  • The collaborative format gave the delegates the opportunity to bond, working together more effectively whilst having fun.
  • The activity also encouraged teamwork and communication.

The event was brought to a rousing finale as the Oscars were handed out for ‘Best Movie’ at a Hollywood themed Gala dinner with the movies being aired on the main screen!


“Having worked with Team Spirit on many outstanding events, our ‘Play Your Part’ conference at Chesford Grange – combining fun, team building elements with the delivery of serious business messages – stands out as one of the most engaging and successful.

Team Spirit developed challenging creative briefs for each team and did a superb job of keeping everyone focused and energised throughout the day. The evening event was simply spectacular, with slick Hollywood theming creating a stunning backdrop to the film premieres.

After the event I was inundated with calls from delegates saying that it was the best event they’d ever attended, and when could they get a copy of the movies. Team Spirit compiled a spectacular DVD of all of the teams’ films, including special highlights and out takes.

The design and delivery of the whole event was seamless from beginning to end. Not only are Team Spirit the friendliest bunch of people you will ever work with… nothing is ever too much trouble. Each year we challenge them to create something unique and fresh… and each year they rise to the occasion!”
