You're Fired!

Indoor TeamBuilding

Do you think you and your colleagues have what it takes to beat the world’s most belligerent boss?! Can you thwart your peers to be the team that gets hired not fired?

Inspired by the highly successful BBC show ‘The Apprentice’, this topical event is a brilliant way to test teamwork in a fun and unique environment.

The apprentice as a team-building event is a light-hearted way to inspire your teams to think out of the box and look at business differently. We use several different themed tasks, all of which draw upon different elements of creative teamwork. They each encourage great levels of innovation and lateral thinking, especially when you know you’ve got to cut it in the boardroom!

FUN is the key ingredient here. We recreate the well know ‘boardroom’ with all the tension and music, just to add some realism. The tasks are all about everyone being involved and feeling free to express their ideas and talents. One thing we promise…you will be amazed at what they come up with!

What happens on the day?

Teams arrive to the tense atmosphere in the boardroom, including that all-famous soundtrack. Sir Alex Sweetex arrives in the usual style, ready to give you your briefing for the challenge ahead.

Each group is allocated the same task, which they’ll tackle head to head. Each has a time limit. Anyone late will incur penalty points. 

Throughout the day, you and your team will be set challenging and fun business tasks. Once completed, Sir Alex will consult his experts and declare one of the teams the winners, who will receive a treat!

The other teams however are hauled into the boardroom to fight it out in the effort not to hear the immortal phrase: “You’re fired!”. Of course, those who are fired won’t be sent home early in a black cab with a cameraman to record the tears! Instead, you will be sent back into the next task to try and redeem yourself and win back some all-important points!

The overall winner at the end of the event is declared as officially being ‘hired’. They will be treated to bubbly whilst those fired serve them!

Challenges include:

  • Gift of the Gab: Armed with a list of items and a shoe-string budget teams will embark on a bartering mission.
  • Shopping Channel Showdown: Have you ever thought QVC presenters have an easy job? Now is your chance.
  • On the Box: You will be given just 45 minutes to make 30-second advert for your chosen product.

Our ‘Apprentices’ event has been specifically designed to test and bring out all the core business attributes in you and your group, including leadership, delegation, commercial awareness & above all, teamwork! We’re always amazed at what teams create when they put their minds to it. This event really allows people to appreciate the skills of others, whilst freely being able to express and share ideas in a fun team environment.
