January. Everyone’s least-favourite time of the year. The Christmas decorations are down, the weather’s miserable and the next bank holiday isn’t until April. After the excitement of Christmas and New Year, it all feels a little deflating. So how do you re-motivate staff ready to smash 2021 when face-to-face team building is out of the question?
How about taking them on an exciting adventure around the world, without the need to leave their living room? Or getting them exercising creativity and competition in a game of Company Fortunes? A virtual team building event is a sure-fire way to start the year on the right foot and re-energise everyone after the Christmas period. Here are our Top 5 virtual events for January.
Who hasn’t sat shouting at the TV when a game show contestant misses a seemingly obvious answer? Well, now its time to put your team’s knowledge to the test with our Company Fortunes team building game! Based on the popular show Family Fortunes, participants will be lead through a series of questions by our charismatic gameshow host. Can you get into the heads of our 100 people to figure out the top answers? Or will you leave everyone giggling with your unusual answer? Designed to reconnect teams after a break and remote working, this virtual team building activity will enhance creativity and get everyone thinking on the same page again. We can even work with you to customize questions to your industry sector, getting teams thinking in the minds of your customers.

Virtual Cookery Experience
Have your team made a New Year’s resolution to eat healthier in 2021? Perhaps they’re trying Veganuary? Or maybe they just want to cook something other than turkey! With our virtual cookery experience, there are loads of options to get your team cooking something tasty. Before your event, a box containing everything needed for the activity will be delivered to each participants door. They can log in to the event online and follow along as an experienced chef takes them through every stage of cooking a delicious meal. A great way to get everyone refocused, this remote activity also rewards their hard work with a tasty treat at the end! Why not offer a prize for the most successful dish? Or get everyone sharing their Instagram-worthy food pics to compare successes. This is a great option if you’re looking for an online team building activity that rewards and reconnects people.
Virtual Conferences and Hybrid Events
After the complex and ever-changing year that was 2020, you might be looking to start 2021 with a virtual conference to go through facts, figures and aims for the year to come. At Eventurous, we can help facilitate all areas of your conference, from set building and live streaming, to sourcing speakers and hosting conference energisers. Why not host your online conference from our very own Mythe Barn, with a professional set-up branded to your company and an experienced team on hand to take care of the technicalities of streaming your event? Include a team building activity to break up the day and re-energise delegates, such as a virtual quiz to get brains working or virtual Haka activity to get everyone moving around. Conferences right now may look very different from what we’re used to, but Eventurous can make sure your remote event is just as engaging as in real life!
