How to choose your corporate seminar destination?

Before choosing the perfect corporate retreat location, you’ll want to ask yourself  – Are you looking to build your team’s skills; or are you more inclined towards team-building, relationship-forming experience? Keep this dichotomy in mind, and the rest will fall into place.

If your priority is a work retreat to develop your team’s skills or brainstorm new ideas – you’ll want a place that provides resources and an atmosphere that will facilitate effective team collaboration. This means choosing a location with conference centres and brainstorming rooms, whiteboards and projectors, as well as high-speed internet connectivity.

If your goal is to organise a team-building retreat, you might want to choose a location that offers more than just a meeting space. To encourage bonding, you’ll need a venue that’s both relaxing and fun, where your team can commiserate over team-building activities, good food, and maybe even a couple of drinks.

Once you’ve decided on the primary goals for your corporate outing, here are a few other things to keep in mind:

  • Overall budget for the retreat;
  • Duration of the retreat;
  • Time of the year;
  • Size of your team.

Which retreat company is best?

Here at Châteauform’, we’re on a mission to do everything we can to make your life as an event organiser as easy as possible. And that offer extends from the very first moment you get in touch with us, right up until your team arrives.

Our company retreat locations accommodate both large and small groups. They’re spearheaded individually by hosts, who, together with a dedicated event planner, will oversee your entire retreat. To ensure that everything runs smoothly and that your teams are well-energised for a day of brainstorming, our chefs will take care of all your catering needs, serving up a gourmet culinary selection that’ll surely please all palettes.

What activities to do during your corporate retreat?

If your main focus is to build skills and generate new ideas, you should look into team-building exercises that encourage your team to learn to work together more effectively. Escape rooms, paintball, scavenger hunts, and team sports are great examples. Apart from being great catalysts for teamwork, they’re also effective icebreakers for new teams. If you want to focus on professional development, consider hiring outside experts to lead skill-specific workshops or seminars.

However, if your goal is simply to have a good time and bond with your team, you’d definitely want to launch activities that appeal to both children and adults. Hiking, biking, kayaking, ropes courses, and zip-lining are great examples. More relaxed activities work as well including, board games, trivia nights, cooking classes, murder mystery dinners, karaoke, art classes, spa days, and cellars/winery tours.

How to organise a company retreat?

  1. Decide on dates: Once you’ve settled on the dates, everything else will fall into place. The earlier you book, the better.

  2. Decide on objectives: Before choosing a venue, set the main theme and expectations for the retreat. 

  3. Book retreat location: Don’t forget to consider factors like weather, accessibility, and budget.

  4. Reserve transportation: Coordinate travel to the company retreat location. This includes getting quotes for a charter bus, van, or car service, in addition to flight arrangements.

  5. Prepare a schedule: Will there be team-building group activities? Shared meals? A brainstorming session? Get creative, but also consider everyone’s comfort levels and interests.

  6. Get feedback and make changes: After the retreat, get feedback from employees on what they fancied (and didn’t). Use this to improve on next year’s retreat.
