Edinburgh is located in Scotland and is great for both outdoor and indoor team building activities. Scotland’s capital is rich in culture and history, with medieval buildings surrounding the city centre’s numerous conference and meeting spaces. Edinburgh offers both a window into the past and snapshot of the contemporary, boasting the UNESCO listed new and old towns alongside one of the UK’s most vibrant arts scenes. It’s no wonder that the city is the second most popular tourist destination in the UK.
Forget about the traditional, tedious, office-based activities you’re used to, our Edinburgh team building days offer an engaging and enjoyable experience for your staff. From archery and treasure hunts to clay pigeon shooting and the highland games, we’re full of team building ideas that get everyone involved. Surrounded by the beautiful Scottish countryside, you are ideally placed for a range of outdoor activities to give your staff the authentic outer-office experience. Add to this plenty of city attractions and buzzing nightlife and you can see why Edinburgh is one of the most popular destinations for corporate team building we offer.
Thanks to Maximillion for another great event that gave us the opportunity to embed our values and build our team.
Thank you so much. The event was a massive success and your team ensured that everything was stress free
Despite weeks of working independently it was great to see our colleagues and to demonstrate that our competitive edge and team work has not been lost, in fact I think isolation made us more competitive than ever!
It was stressful because it was the unknown but I think it all went as well as it could have! We really appreciated Ross’ energy and organisation throughout the whole day.
I’ve had great feedback on the Pub Olympics and Challenge Chest events that you delivered as part of our annual conference. The energy you brought and the way you adapted to our timings, keeping the group in check, was a massive help.
We have been creating team-building experiences in Edinburgh for a long time now and have built relationships with some amazing venues in that time. These include The Royal Scots Club, Gilmerton House, Musselburgh Race Course, The Caledonian, The Royal Botanic Gardens and many more.
The Royal Scots Club, located only minutes away from Princes Street in the Georgian New Town, provides an authentic Scottish experience. It has a range of function rooms catering for between 10 and 200 people and would be a perfect fit for conferences and team challenges. For a 5 star experience, Gilmerton House covers all the stops. Adding a luxurious element to your events venue, this Grade A listed Georgian Mansion can provide for a corporate event with up to 300 guests and is exclusively yours for the entire stay. If it’s a city centre location you’re after, Waldorf Astoria’s iconic Caledonian hotel is the perfect venue for you. With views of Edinburgh Castle and two Michelin starred restaurants to enjoy, this venue is suitable for those who want to soak up the city’s sights and culture.
Choose whichever one of these locations best suits the needs of your team building event. These are just a handful of the Edinburgh venues we work with. You can take a look at some more amazing events spaces here.
Maximillion continue to deliver the highest quality of events across the UK. Check out what events we have created and hosted in Edinburgh.
Not all of our team building workshops are based remotely. There are plenty of options to choose from that can be conducted in your office. This could be corporate fun days or indoor events that help your staff develop as a team. Browse through our energiser and icebreaker options if you want in-house activities that can help boost team morale in the early morning or around lunchtime. These are ideal for teams that are restricted in terms of budget or travel or can’t fit a full day to spare in their busy schedule. Team events can be an invaluable, developmental and fun experience for your staff, so get in touch.
The four main types of teams are Functional, Cross-Functional, Virtual, and Self-directed.
The foundations of a strong team are great leadership and adaptability, along with effective communication and skilled conflict management.
A group is filled with individuals who collectively work together due to a shared common goal. A group becomes a team when the individuals hold themselves and each other jointly accountable for the team’s performance.
Many believe that the optimal team size is between 4 and 20. Once a team goes over 20 people, they often naturally split into multiple sub-groups.
