UK Communications & Media Group

The brief

A leading UK communications and media group approached us looking for an experience that would motivate and reward their highest performing employees. The event had to be UK based, within an hours travel of their head office and provide both "Luxury & team bonding".

Challenges

  • Find activities that would match the groups diversity allowing them all to input.

  • Acheive a sense of luxury on a limited budget.

  • Historically incentives were held abroad, this experience had to exceed the expectations of attendees.

Scale

24 guests

Location

Various - London

Solution

We sought locations across the city that would deliver a sense of luxury and make all the attendees feel special. Arriving at their 5 star Hotel in premium cars, the guests were welcomed with a champagne reception before changing for their activity.

Given the varied physical ability and ages of guests we chose an activity that would challenge them mentally, requiring them to pull together as a team. This was a roaring success with all teams bonding over their timed challenge exiting feeling energised and excited for the evening to come.

Once again picked up from their hotel in premium vehicles the guests were taken to an exclusive yet low key cocktail bar where bespoke cocktails were served by their exclusive team, before crossing the road to the renowned Tramshed restaurant.

The evening was finished in an exclusive London venue where they were serenaded by Motown & Blues music in their private Silver Bullet caravan.

We provided the following services:

  • Event logistics

  • Full programme

  • Entertainment

  • Team activity

  • Transportation

  • 24 - hour  on-site support from Penguins

Result

"Given our change to a UK based incentive, we expected the team to be a little defalted by the experience. This couldn't have been further from the truth, Penguins delivered an impeccable experience to our lucky winners and proved the UK can be an excellent incentive destination."
