The logo sculpture, the team build experience and Can You Dig It Sand Tools! (See below!)
Successful team building events need to meet certain criteria. Foremost they should entertain guests with positive and constructive activities that benefit employees for some time after they return to their offices.
They must motivate the staff to engage with others and be geared toward developing out of office collaboration among their reward group members.
A great team build is designed to foster familiarity and boost stronger working relationships within the organization.
And if these criteria are met, the by-product is the strengthening of company pride by leaving guests with fabulous memories and a story to tell!
If your event is at a beach resort, one of the easiest and most natural ways to entertain and engage your guests is right there in the sand with a world class sand sculptor. Participants not only get the team building experience, but they learn some rudimentary tricks and a unique skills for one of the most beloved of all pastimes. A skill they can take home to share with friends and family every time they go to the beach!
Here’s how it works:
A typical sand sculpture team build includes a demonstration sculpture created by one or more sand sculptors. The design of the demonstration sculpture should include features representative of the client and most importantly the company logo rendered with laser like precision. For instance, a pet company would feature animals as part of the sculpture, or a pool company might have waterfalls cascading into different styles of swimming pools. Often, a client will want to keep a sculpture whimsical in which case detailed sand castles or sea creatures are the consummate crowd pleasers. The clients input on design elements is always welcome!
The demonstration or logo sculpture creates the perfect photo opportunity for members of the group and instills pride.
Some companies choose to photograph the sculpture and use the resulting images in print ads or company souvenirs and posters.
The team build itself is simple to organize. After teams are selected, a professional instructor will do a small presentation before the entire group, or just for team leaders when the group is extra large. Participants then shovel their own sand, carry their own water, create their own designs and carve the sand all under the guidance of the sculptor who works with the teams throughout the event helping to keep them on track and get real results. Judging the results is by the sculptors or a company committee. This format produces winners who may collect token prizes, certificates and at least some hard earned bragging rights.
The logo with supporting details usually takes one day (though the American Express team build and logo at right were done in one day!) and the team build is done the following. The team build can last anywhere from one and a half to three hours: More if a group likes.
