TEAM BUILDING THROUGH WRITING ***NEW***
For UP Clients or a mix of Client and Agency Teams
Bespoke, online, by arrangement with Client Services or Account Director.
Many corporate teams now work remotely or on a hybrid basis. If the team is newly configured or undergone a reshuffle, this exacerbates the issue of team bonding. Seasoned workshop and retreat leader Stuart Delves has designed an immersive retreat for such teams. Using writing exercises and tapping in to everyone’s creativity, the experience allows participants to get to know each other quickly and in a meaningful way. The UP community have been working remotely and happily for over 11 years with many friendships being formed between people who have never met each other.
There will be a couple of guest spots on this retreat in which members from UP share their insights into successful remote working.
Team Building Through Writing Retreats have been delivered to Shell, Irdeto, British Heart Foundation, Lloyds Banking Group and Arts Council Wales. A Head of Corporate Communications said of a recent retreat “I can’t believe we achieved so much in 12 hours”.

NAME YOUR RETREAT
Bonding is one thing, and a very important thing, as well functioning teams are the lifeblood of companies. But what other topics might UP clients like to focus on?
Writing for community managers maybe, how to write for inbound at the top of the funnel, or creative training on diversity? If you have a topic you’d like to explore the possibility of work-shopping please talk to your Account Director in the first instance.
Chances are we can design something dynamic, tailored to your requirements. For Your Eyes Only guaranteed.
