Boxwood Team Peak District Challenge

Boxwood is an award-winning consultancy known for delivering unreasonable and lasting results. Nine teams of consultants took part in a Team Challenge in the Peak District of the UK. The event was organised by Unique Solutions Ltd and I was looking after one team of 7 employees; the “Nameless & Shameless” Team.

Teams arrived by train and were taken to accommodation in Castleton for a social evening before activities on the Thursday. Having preselected activities to be very challenging my team had Climbing and Gliding in the morning and Off-road Driving and Kayaking in the afternoon. Other teams chose activities including abseiling, caving, sailing and mountain biking.

A late finish, quick shower and into supper and quiz.

The next morning was an exercise of point scoring activities and a Clout Archery Finale before the 70 odd exhausted participants were placed back on trains home.

“A very tired Nameless and Shameless are now winding our way back to London and Norwich. Just wanted to drop you a line to say thanks again for your effort (and patience!) in organising things for us over the last couple of days. Everything worked perfectly. Timings were spot on, activities were challenging and instructors friendly and willing to give even the most amateur amongst us a chance to shine.”

Throughout the 48 hour event teams were scored on attitude and achievement in an overall competition. The informal teambuilding event was a huge success generating unanimously positive feedback
