Hill Dickinson

Corporate Team Building

Hill Dickinson is a leading international commercial law firm. From a single practice founded in 1810, the company has now grown into eight offices around the world with 175 partners and over 1300 employees.

The company decided to invest in team building after undergoing 12 months of change that included the introduction of number of new roles and new people into the business. From the start, the management team were keen to have a fun event, which everyone (regardless of age and ability) could join in and enjoy.

How Team Academy Helped

Hill Dickinson decided it needed an event that would challenge and stretch the team while strengthening relationships between the staff. This isn’t something that can be achieved by sitting in a classroom! So we took them outdoors for a jam-packed day of fun, high energy tasks.

We devised a day that would be all about breaking down barriers and helping people to understand each other a little better. The programme was also mindful of bringing new team members into the mix, so we did a number of tasks that got people to share bits of information about themselves. This was in addition to some ‘trust’ exercises and tough problem-solving tasks.

The day achieved its aim of being very motivational, fast-paced, and giving everyone the opportunity to work together. We can honestly say great friendships were made on the programme! Hill Dickinson reported back to us that the team day spilled over into the office as everyone is now working together in a much more cohesive way and communication has improved.

What The Client Says

“Rachel’s approach meant our energy levels were maintained all day. We all thoroughly enjoyed the activities as there was something for everyone. A real sense of achievement was reached within all the tasks which in turn created a very positive and engaged team. Even those sceptical about the day were absolute converts by the first break…”

“Rachel was fantastic, taking the time to meet with us prior to the day to understand our exact requirements. Our expectations were completely exceeded by Rachel and all at Team Academy. We will return and I would certainly have no hesitation in recommending Team Academy to other organisations.”
