Why should you organize a seminar for your company?
Seminars are the best way to create and strengthen the cohesion in your groups of collaborators. The programs suggested are as important as the locations chosen to make these events happen. Seminars, treasure hunts, extreme sports are only some of the few technics that can be used but their goal in unique: fostering team building.
Understanding and supporting each other as if in a sports team, is paramount for a company to succeed. Indeed, solidarity is not a value that is taken for granted, it is built as time goes by and when challenges are shared.
Stress, misunderstanding and poor communication can hinder harmony in a department. To prevent this from happening, team building exercises are a good alternative. Participating to original and fun activities will give each employee the opportunity to discover his/her collaborators in new light. They will go back to work with a different perspective on their co-workers and their motivation will be restored.
To be part to this process, Estérel Aventures has developed physical and cultural exercises promoting Team Building. In legendary cities of the French Riviera including but not limited to Marseille, Nice, Cannes, Monaco, we offer a combination of sportive, intensive, intellectual and deductive challenges: Rallies, Agay Express, Fresh Sensations, Inflatable Zodiac Races, Buggy Getaways, Sherlock 2.0, O Provenço, Land Art Experien’z…. Choose the program available in French or English that best suit your needs and expectations!
A few questions you should ask yourself to choose your program
In order to best meet your expectations we suggest you gather some useful information about your group. This will allow us to understand your request more precisely.
The first thing to consider is the location/hotel so you can plan accordingly depending on the size of your group. Not all programs fit large groups and vice versa.
The second thing to consider is to look back at the programs already implemented in the last three years to avoid repeats.
Next, help us determine your participants’ profile. What is the male/female ratio, the average age, characteristics of the group? Are we dealing with clients/journalists/members of your company?
Then, think about the type of atmosphere and event you want the participants to experience.
If you feel like exposing them to challenges, our “Team Spirit” programs will fit them perfectly,
If you feel like exposing them to relaxing time, fun and discovery, our “New Explorers” programs are more appropriate,
If you have chosen Provence to have them explore the treasures this region has to offer, then our “Shared Authenticity” programs are best.
If you have limited time at the end of the day then may be a festive aperitif, or dinner time activity through our “Happy Hour” program is exactly what you are looking for!
Last but not least, if you know exactly how much time you have and what your budget is, this is even better!
Include an environmental friendly or CSR policy twist to your program!
Organizing an eco-friendly seminar including your Corporate Social Responsibility values is not an easy feat. With this in mind, you can still find the ideal program to smoothly end your corporate event without putting aside laughter and cheerfulness.
We have listed 5 solutions you can consider to engage your groups in a perspective that reflects your values in an original way:
1 – Discover a city using an eco-friendly means of transportation
The Trot Elec visits (or electric scooter) are still considered an innovative and original way to discover a city. This allows Estérel Aventures to differentiate itself in the industry. In addition, it offers our clients an eco-friendly alternative. Thanks to our thirty five electric scooters, we pride ourselves to offer this alternative to companies looking for originality.
2 – Limit our impact on the ocean!
Over here, motor boats are not particularly popular! We have opted for giant inflatable canoes instead. Your groups not only have fun in water but do not pollute it. Participants can peacefully explore and discover coves as well as enjoy activities and/or have a lunch prepared with local products served and eaten with wooden cutlery!
3 – Become aware of disability
This program has already been implemented for one of our clients and focuses on using our physical resources differently.
4 – Fund raising for a good cause
We can give your collaborators the opportunity to raise money for a charitable cause. “Move for a donation” is a program for which participants volunteer their time, the physical challenges generate the money that will be donated to a cause of your choice (a children’s hospital, research for a disease…). Solidarity will be used where it is mostly needed.
5 – Eco-friendly action
This approach allows you to contribute to protecting Mother Nature by combining your event with the participation and guidance of the National Forest Association. With programs similar to the “Land Art Experien’z” one, you can have participants take part into clearing weeds/dead wood or planting trees.
Organizers, a memo for you
For your corporate event to be a success, it must occur under the best possible conditions. Your participants should be given a few elements.
