Samuel Brent
Sam is a born and bred North Londoner. Growing up in Archway, attending primary school at Montem Juniors in Holloway, and secondary school at Acland Burghley in Tufnell Park. After success with his A-Levels at LA SWAP, he studied film at the London College of Printing (later the London College of Communication) in the Elephant and Castle and then Clerkenwell. This led to working with the Guardian in Farringdon, and a career in Journalism. After years of a miss-spent youth in Camden Town, Sam now lives in Belsize Park with his wife Marina and their two children, Esme and Primrose. Samuel enjoys Gardening and cycling, and is an avid Arsenal fan and works out of his office in Shoreditch.

The world of work has changed a lot since March 2020, with many more of us working remotely from home. While the staples of weekday life like commuting and in-person meetings have changed, one thing hasn’t – and that’s building meaningful relationships in your team. Forbes wrote about this only three months into the pandemic, and it’s just as true now as it was then. It’s more important now than ever before to foster real and authentic relationships with your peers, managers and colleagues across the business.

How to connect with your team

A brilliant way to reconnect is to hold an away day with the whole team where you all work on one common goal and have a lot of fun while doing it. Awaydays provide a great opportunity for employees to get to know each other outside of the workplace, which is ideal if you’ve had any employees join the team. It’s a very natural way to encourage and improve communication, strengthen relationships and get everyone away from their day-to-day job.

Awayday ideas in London

There are lots of London-based team building ideas that will spark imagination, innovation and fun for your business. Depending on the type of personalities in your team and what you want to get out of it, there’s so much inspiration out there that will help you select the right one.

For teams made up of a lot of extroverts, you could try more physical events and something a little bit more out there. Our favourites are:

  • Wild Wipeout – based on the TV show, it’s a big obstacle course that even the most competitive will love.
  • London Turbo Challenge – one for the daredevils out there, the team climb the O2!
  • London Sports Partython – don’t settle for just one event, roll them all into one! The Partython is darts, crazy golf, and ping pong, plus a party bus thrown in for good measure.

For teams made up of introverts and problem solvers, a quieter event can be quite the hit. We’d recommend:

  • Treasure Hunts – perfect for the thinkers in the team, it’ll get the brain juices flowing
  • The Bigger Picture – go wildly creative with paints and make a painting together

Don’t forget about wellbeing

Away days can be about the big events, problem-solving and physical challenges, but they can also be about relaxing and unwinding from the daily grind. Why not book a cocktail making class which is a fun activity but a little bit more interactive than a straightforward trip to the pub? We also love wellbeing away days to fully destress – yoga, massages and breathing can have a profound effect on your team’s health and who doesn’t want to feel more relaxed?

Whatever you choose, there’s guaranteed to be the perfect option out there for you and your team and an experience you won’t forget!
