Our theme this quarter was ‘Be Brave’ – something that, post the commercial focussed part of the day, we explored through physical and mental activities. First up was the brilliant Aran Rees from Sabre Tooth Panda, a creativity coach who bases his work around the power of play. The idea is, that by creating a safe space in order to explore certain themes, we take away the pre-defined constraints of our relationships with others, and are able to freely explore ideas with no judgement. We played a number of games including the hotly contested Chaos Chairs (the boomerang on our Instagram captures the game perfectly). The games allowed us to explore the idea that sometimes, the journey of how you get to something is more important than the answer, and although often we might not even reach an answer, there’s gold in the process we went through to get there.
We then spent our afternoon at Go Ape, capering around on zip wires and rallying each other on through the nerve-wracking treetop walkways
We then spent our afternoon at Go Ape, capering around on zip wires and rallying each other on through treetop walkways. This not only allowed us to explore our physical braveness, but also to work as a team in order to make sure we all got the moral support we needed to complete the challenge!
No Revite Day would be complete without a party, so after Go Ape we hotfooted it over to Bunga Bunga for dinner and karaoke. Trust me, there were some brave singing choices, all without any judgement, resulting in pure enjoyment and some hilarious videos that won’t be making it onto social media...
Revite Days are about revitalisation. It’s our way of learning from the past and looking to the future. Revite Days go far beyond the traditional corporate away days and that’s down to our incredible team who are always willing to throw the rule book away to find their edge. Or in this case, the edge of a platform suspended 30ft in the air!
