Are your corporate incentives costing you too much and taking up precious staff time in the planning?
Over the past 12-months we’ve been working with the UK’s number one ecommerce and hosted software provider EKM Systems, to organise their quarterly staff events. From Glamorous Cocktail & Casino evenings, to outdoor pursuits and branded promotional vehicles, we’ve created events that have left a lasting impression.
Here are a few examples of past events to give you some inspiration:
Escape to the Country
As our daily lives get busier and we spend more and more time in the office or on the move, what could be better than a relaxing day out in the country… the fresh air, scenic views and home cooked food.
Recently we paid a visit to one for the Lake Districts premier outdoor pursuit centres, Rookin House in Penrith. All staff were collected from the company offices by a luxury coach, and despite the bank holiday traffic arrived perfectly on time for an action packed afternoon of activities.
On arrival the group were split into three teams, which all got the chance to participate in the following activities:
– Clay Pigeon Shooting
– Quad Bikes
– Argo Cats (these were an all round favourite!)
After everyone was well and truly exhausted from the activities, we took them off to a country pub for some home cooked food, including a Coronation Chicken Curry (very appropriate for the Jubilee weekend) and a few drinks, before returning home later that evening.
To mark a landmark achievement in EKM Systems company history, we decided to treat all staff to the ultimate VIP night out! This was a chance for the team to get dressed up and be treated like VIP’S for the evening.
For this event we created a special EKM9000 logo which was applied to a fleet of designer limousines, from Hummers to Chrysler 300C’s. These cars collected all staff from the company offices and took them up to the fabulous Stanley House Hotel at Mellor.
On arrival at Stanley House the team were greeted with the red carpet treatment and a Champagne reception, before heading up to the private function room to enjoy a delicious 3-course meal prepared by head chef, Andrew Parker, previously of Harvey Nichols’ Bar and Brasserie.
After dinner the cars headed in to Manchester City Centre where the team visited top nightspots and benefited from private booths, guest list entry and que jump. After a fabulous night out had by all, the cars returned everyone home safely.
“After commissioning Passion 4 Events to organise our corporate incentives 12-months ago, we have seen a rise in participants, saved on staff time in the planning, & benefited from discounted rates and cost savings across all activities. I would not hesitate in recommending Passion 4 Events for a cost effective way to organise and manage any event.” Antony Chesworth | Managing Director | EKM Systems Ltd
