Andy and his team have brilliant communication skills and they kept us up to date the whole way through. Andy is approachable, enthusiastic and a real pleasure to work with and I can’t thank him enough for organising and running such a fantastic team building event. It was challenging, fun and it got everybody smiling. The whole team was really enthused and I am sure it will be talked about for many months!
I hope to work with you again in the future!
‘I have been lucky enough to have taken part in two Expert Leadership Training events. Both different but both equally exciting and impeccably well organised. Clear instructions and objectives were given at the start of both events so teams knew exactly what the events involved. I have never taken part in team building activities like these and I would highly recommend Expert Leadership Training. Both events were great fun and there was a good mixture of mental and physical challenges involved.
One event was called Hunters & Seekers and this involved using the whole city to find clues, agents and taking pictures to earn points. It was so exciting and I felt as though I was in a real undercover operation!
The other event was Crystal Challenge, this was more localised to my workplace and had a real mixture of mental and physical challenges – It had an essence of the crystal maze! It was great seeing so many work colleagues eager to get involved. Everybody seemed to thoroughly enjoy themselves! I personally loved the hilarity of mission impossible and the team eagerness (and frustration) that came with one of the mental number block sorting challenges – we were so close to figuring it out, but our time ran out!
It had everything you would want and more from a team building afternoon! Thank you so much guys!

Why did I use ELT?
I am a new manager to my department, and my team is split across 2 offices. I wanted to bring my team together and develop productive team relationships to overcome the physical barrier of locations, while also being able to assess what type staff I have within my team.
When you say ‘teambuilding’ staff think of workplace meeting rooms, sticking post-it notes on walls, desk based games, and questionnaires telling you what type of animal you are. While these are good ways to teach the theory of leadership and teamwork, it doesn’t actually challenge people and get them work together as a team, and if I’m honest, staff find it boring.

We conducted a 5 day practical and theory based Managers evaluation and planning Course and asked the delegates to give us feedback on all aspects of the course.
We also asked them to score the areas with feedback 5 being excellent and 1 being bad, and they have scored 5 out of 5 in all areas.
Very informative tutorial, good slides and practical exercises. The 2 Andys’ very professional, helpful and supportive.

The Day allowed me to see that planning a job makes completing the task easier. Our communication as a team will improve as we rely on each other. Our efforts today have been joint efforts and as a result success. Good information to take away which I see can be introduced into every day tasks.
Overall found the day very useful, we have been offered a different method of planning and a more structured manner. Activities were well organized and varied enough not to feel repetitive. Intermittent evaluations of what we were doing/had done were useful to encourage better planning.
