Getting into the Team Spirit

New UCLan Event Management undergraduates took part in a team-building event alongside students from our Tourism and Hospitality courses.

It was planned and organised by Jade Winders and Shauna Greensmith who have just completed a 48-week placement with Team Spirit. They were assisted by Alex Grebenar, who is a UCLan Event Management graduate and who will be shortly undertaking a PhD in the School. Event Managers from Team Spirit also attended.

The event began with students attempting Accumulator, where participants undertook a wide variety of practical, performance and lateral thinking challenges, while a second task saw groups creating superheros and sidekicks. Points were awarded throughout the day, with prizes awarded to the top three teams, while the winners received engraved trophies.

The event provided new students with a fun environment in which to get to know their colleagues, while offering the opportunity to experience how an event is staged - something which will be invaluable as the course develops.
