Since 2011, Independent Adventure have delivered events and activities for a wide range of organisations across the UK. A recent experience on Ullswater in the Lake District highlighted the importance of our flexibility and client centred approach.
This corporate client of regional directors and head office team were looking for a team building experience in Cumbria, that would concentrate on cooperation and working together towards a common goal. They were looking for a challenge that would push their comfort zone and had already concluded that raft building in the Lake District would be perfect for this.
We always strive to meet your objectives, that's what sets us apart from our competitors. We selected a suitable venue on Ullswater in the Lake District and packed up the van with everything the group could need to build their dream raft.
Arriving nice and early it would appear that the wind had other ideas! The force 4-6 wind at our chosen venue would provide an extra challenge, which wasn't quite in the brief. After a quick phone call to the client, we quickly relocated and met the group at the other, more sheltered end of the lake. Flexibility to the conditions and the ability to adapt to the needs of the group means we rarely ever cancel an event - you'll have the best time possible whatever the weather.
Upon arrival, the group enjoyed a picnic lunch in the beautiful surroundings of the Lake District, on the shore of Ullswater. We had a quick chat with the team leader to confirm their intended outcomes from the session and introduced ourselves to the group. With safety as a priority, the group looked great in their helmets and buoyancy aids. They planned and built their rafts with the support of our instructors.
With two different designs, both rafts were strong and stable and the group enjoyed some challenges on the water.
This was a great team building event with a fantastic group. Feedback from the team leader and the group was very positive and they achieved their goals. We look forward to working with them again and arranging more bespoke activity events across Cumbria and the North West.
Please get in touch with us to see how we can meet your team building objectives with a bespoke event.
