Recently we all went down to explore the world of BOUNCEinc, one of our valued clients, as a team building exercise. BOUNCEinc, based in Glen Iris, houses over 100 trampolines, letting little tykes and adults alike jump around, and try a few tricks if they're game.
We took the whole office over last Friday afternoon to enjoy the benefits of this unique venue, while getting to know one of our clients a bit better at the same time. The excursion also coincided with the welcoming of our new web developer, Blair, providing a pretty fun introduction to our company and how we try to mix up our busy work schedule.
We worked together, as a whole and as separate teams, to battle it out in a game of dodgeball, as well coming up with some pretty inventive ways of dunking a basketball across three trampolines. As you can see from Nathan in LeBron-esque form. The whole team left in high spirits, however achy from the much-needed exercise.
While the afternoon was a great team building exercise, jumping across a field of trampolines is a great way to fuel enthusiasm among team members, it also gave us some helpful insight into what it is that our client offers; how their brand works and the kinds of services they provide.
By experiencing the service first hand, the direction of the organisation is now clearer than ever. We are able to cater to their needs more effectively, through online marketing, helping us offer a more direct and accurate service.
Do you think you will organise a team building activity for your business? What kind of activity would you want everyone to get involved in?
