My favourite event of 2015

November 24, 2015 : News

In 2015, Maximillion hosted some fantastic events. Some presented us with challenges, but – even if we say so ourselves – each one was executed to the highest quality to ensure our clients and their guests were delighted.

We asked members of the team what their favourite event of 2015

For Sarah, who heads up our Conference and Incentives offering, her favourite event was a Highland Games and a Bond evening at Ackergill Tower in Wick…a logistically challenging event at a stunning venue! Our client was open to all ideas, and even contemplated a private flight on a helicopter for the winner of the Casino night.

Glen, our Activity Centre Manager’s favourite event was Air Rifles and Falconry at Turnberry Adventures, Trump Turnberry. The client, GE Aviation, was looking for something that was different and added a competitive edge. The Air Rifle shooting definitely brought out the competitive side with a joint award going to two top marksmen, whilst the Falconry provided an elegant, different experience in some glorious west coast sunshine!

GE Aviation left us some fantastic feedback. Read it here!

Thomas, our Wildgoose Scotland Manager’s favourite project was Case Studybuilding and delivering the Ballantine’s Edinburgh Explorer. The brief involved bringing a historical story to life throughout the streets of Edinburgh and gamifying the life of whisky pioneer George Ballantine, it was a really great project to work on! Ballantine’s is a really strong brand and had loads of interesting content to work with. The hunt also included a trip to National Register House and the participants were a great laugh!

Sandy, our Learning and Development lead, comments that:
Case Studies“It was a real pleasure to be involved again with the University of Edinburgh Business School this year for the Building High Performing Teams residential programme for their full-time MBA cohort – a highly motivated group of students from across the globe. The programme comprised a tried and tested mix of indoor and outdoor experiential team-based elements, combined with facilitated scenarios and workshops, and input sessions which related to the implications and applications of Belbin Team Roles from a personal , inter-personal and course-related perspective. Oh, and not to forget one of our great GPS-enabled Checkpoint Challenges! Although we were lucky with the weather on Day Two this year, note to self to remember the anti-midge spray for the 2016 programmes!”

UEBS again provided some great feedback. Read it here!

For Jonathan, the muscles behind Maximillion’s operations, his favourite event was a Knockout for Intu staff at Braehead Arena – a great day had by both guests and staff. This was a particular challenge for him erecting a Knockout on concrete and being unable to anchor the games to the ground!

The build of this event was filmed as a brilliant time lapse video.
