COTW Training, are thrilled to announce they have won the Team Building Experience of the Year Award at the Conference and Incentive Travel Awards 2017 (C&IT).
The judges were impressed by our Elite Team Performance work with Worcester Warriors English Premiership Rugby Team. The team were in danger of being relegated from the English Premier League to the First Division. This would have been financially disastrous.
Team Building Experience of the Year For Work With Worcester Warriors Rugby Team
Approximately 50 personnel from the club attended our Elite High Performing Team event and workshops in the Brecon Beacons. They were from 20+ global countries, so bringing together different cultures, approaches to the team.
They stayed at our purpose built, residential centre set in 73 acres situated in the National Park. From the moment they arrived until they the moment they left, they were interacting, learning and developing their physical, mental and emotional skills to further improve their elite performance ability by working more effectively and efficiently as a unit.
The outcome was that they won the rest of their games following the event and stayed up in the English Premier League, so saving them £millions in lost sponsorship, ticket sales and merchandise opportunities. They also developed a strong set of core values and a symbolic shield of their values is now embedded into their games, their ethos, their culture and their fabric at the ground (literally).
Short-listed with two other Companies from the UK, the award winners were announced at a grand ceremony at The London Hilton on Park Lane on Friday 22nd September.
“We are absolutely delighted. To be chosen by the judges before larger organisations is excellent. When venues such as Berlin, Geneva, Las Vegas and Lisbon are winning awards at the same event it puts into perspective how big this award is for us. It illustrates that our work in the fields of management training, team building and leadership development is recognised as some of the best in the country,” explained Geraint Lewis, Managing Director.
Editor of the C&IT Magazine, Susie Harwood said
