With companies constantly looking at ways to motivate their staff and encourage effective team work, productivity and unity, Candle By Events, a Buckinghamshire based business, offers all of this and more.
During strategically aligned sessions, candle-making techniques are demonstrated to delegates who are then split into groups and set the challenge of creating a new range of candles and exciting brand concept. From calculating costs and profit margins to developing marketing plans, the “The Generation Game meets Dragons’ Den” approach brings people together, creates a collaborative but competitive environment, enhances communication skills and identifies the various strengths of personalities working together on a day-to-day basis.
Whilst these are creative events, the sessions can incorporate Myers Briggs Personality Preferences as well as company messaging and values to ensure not only does every employee get something out of the session, but there are measurable long-term business benefits too.
Sarah Ditchfield,Candle By Events Founder, said; “We know team building can bring people together and develop strengths so we work with every client to create a bespoke solution that achieves their goals whilst highlighting strategic business needs and messages. Whether you need to focus on problem-solving, increased creativity or communication skills, this unique, sociable activity focuses people on a fun task that requires them to think differently and work together under pressure”.
She added; “This is a totally unique offering in the UK and, in addition to the event and candle-making, delegates get to take home their creations complete with company message or logo, as a reminder of the event and what has been learnt both as part of a team and personally”.
One happy client commented. “I was concerned my team wouldn’t be creative – how wrong I was! They worked very well together, all got stuck in and every team produced great products and excellent pitches – and they enjoyed themselves too. The candle-making event complemented the Insights programme perfectly. I would certainly recommend Sarah and her team to other companies”.
