ACF Teambuilding & Events Ltd is one of the UK’s leading team building and event companies with over 20 years of experience running bespoke events tailored to corporate clients. To combat the distance felt between teams during this pandemic, they have created a great list of alternative teambuilding events you can try out. 

Are you tired of the same old lacklustre Zoom quizzes? Here at ACF Teambuilding & Events, we’ve called upon our wealth of industry experience and creative expertise to launch virtual team building events for remote teams to enjoy!

We understand just how important it is to boost team morale and encourage staff engagement as we navigate the new normal, which is why we’ve made each of our online team building events as interactive and fun as possible. 

Our events are organised by our experienced instructors so, for the most part, all you need to do is rally the team together and show up!

Which one will you choose?

ACF Teambuilding Zombie Run

Zombie Run 

Zombie Run, our brand new virtual team building experience, gives you and your colleagues the opportunity to enjoy an adrenaline-fuelled escape room filled with thought-provoking challenges that participants must work together to solve. 

Groups are divided into teams, each with a dedicated captain, and the experience begins with our enthusiastic host setting the nail-biting apocalyptic scene for the participants. Once the challenges have been introduced, groups will disband into meeting rooms to examine the clues provided before returning to the main screen with their answers.

Our host will communicate with each team along the way in order to evaluate their progress and provide helpful hints if needed. There will be approximately six challenges over the course of an hour which will need to be completed in order to ensure your survival. The quicker teams are to complete each challenge, the sooner they’ll be able to move onto the next - further adding to the jeopardy. With a trusty survival pack in your inventory - filled with items that may or may not prove useful over the course of the event - participants are encouraged to think outside of the box in order to prevent their demise. 

From lateral thinking to cryptic clue cracking, problem solving to code breaking, participants will be able to brush up on a whole host of transferable skills whilst having fun in the process! Once time is up, everyone will rejoin the main screen and the winners will be announced. 

Group size: Teams of 6 people but multiple teams can enter.  
Duration: 60 minutes

Virtual Bake-Along! 

As Britain faces flour shortages due to the swathes of amateur bakers turning to baking for self care, as reported by the Guardian, it has become abundantly clear that baking feeds the soul. 

Our GBBO-inspired, virtual bake-along will make soggy-bottomed sponges a thing of the past as you’ll be baking your sweet treats whilst guided by a leading Michelin Star chef. There’s nothing quite as therapeutic as making things from scratch, so this is the perfect virtual team building event for teams looking to reconnect and decompress.

If you’re looking to turn the heat up, however, you can add a competitive element to the proceedings and have your team go head-to-head to bake their very own showstoppers. Top marks will be awarded by our expert judge for creations that are deemed to be both beautifully presented and creative in their use of ingredients.

Each team member will be sent a bespoke baking event kit through the post, which includes the printed recipe and the pre-weighed ingredients, so all you need to do is gather up your tins and don your chef’s hat.

On your marks, get set, bake!

Group size: 3-50
Duration: 2 hours

Chocolate making 

You might know the ins and outs of your chocolate stash, thanks to all that extra time spent at home, but how well do you know the history behind chocolate making?

Over the course of this unique virtual cooking experience, you’ll learn all about the humble cocoa bean and how it’s transformed into silky chocolate bars, before watching a live chocolate making demonstration from a professional. Once you’re well-versed in the art of tempering and the key to making a smooth ganache, as well as the various dipping and decorating techniques favoured by chocolatiers, you’ll be set the task of making your very own delicious chocolates. 

If you’re looking to introduce a competitive element, you’ll also be set a team challenge where groups break off into meeting rooms to create imaginary chocolate bars to break into the competitive market. Teams will have to come up with eye-catching branding, a USP, box design and clever marketing before presenting their imaginary chocolate bars to the group. Points will be awarded for creativity, presentation and the sleekest sales pitch. 

Each team member will be sent a bespoke chocolate making kit through the post, which includes the printed recipe and specialised ingredients, so all you need to do is gather up the relevant kitchen equipment and awaken your creativity! 

Group size: 3-100
Duration: 30 minutes - 2 hours

The Culinary Games

Our parents may have always told us to never play with our food but we’re giving you permission to stand down from your stovetop stoop and enjoy this next virtual team building experience! 

Introducing The Culinary Games, a series of fun, fast-paced, foodie challenges for energetic and competitive teams looking to master some new skills and have a laugh whilst doing so.

The much-loved games begin with a series of technical rounds, from cupcake decorating to Yorkshire pudding making, that will test your creativity and ability to work under pressure. Later rounds will see you answering foodie-based quiz questions and mastering the art of speedy napkin folding before the grand finale where teams will have to work against the clock to flip the perfect pancakes!

Bespoke parcels will be sent to team members through the post, which include all of the required ingredients, so you can focus on creating lasting memories with your team! 

If you’re looking for an antidote to the various stresses that may come with remote work, The Culinary Games is the perfect virtual team building event!  

Group size: 3-50
Duration: 2-2.5 hours 

Balloon modelling 

If you’re tired of sticking to the same routine day in, day out, our virtual balloon modelling sessions are a great way to break up the monotony and have a bit of lighthearted fun with colleagues. 

If you’re looking for a slower-paced introductory class, our experienced instructor can help guide you every step of the way as you try your hand at mastering a new skill. If your team is somewhat experienced, or quick to learn, however, you can also opt for a balloon modelling demonstration instead. 

Each team member will be sent a selection of colourful balloons and a balloon pump so they can follow along and make a range of balloon creations, from a classic balloon dog to a rather fetching flower hat! 

Group size: up to 6 people for interactive classes; up to 18 people for demonstrations.
Duration: 45 minutes

ACF Teambuilding Cocktail Making

Cocktail making 

Whilst you may not currently be able to enjoy a cocktail from a sun-drenched, beachside lounger, you can enjoy them from the comfort of your own home with our online cocktail making masterclass. 

You’ll learn some impressive new party tricks whilst guided by our trusty bartender to make a selection of classic cocktails. Classes are usually themed around a particular beverage - from rum to gin, vodka to tequila, etc - so it’s up to you to pick the perfect tipple for the proceedings!

There are two different classes to choose from - the Bring Your Own party or the Pre-Measured Tipple party.  

If you opt for the BYO party, team members will be sent a shopping list of the required ingredients alongside a selection of recipes for making your own syrups, cordials and purees to experiment with if you so wish. The bespoke cocktail kit also features helpful tips regarding  glassware and ice so you can make the most of the experience.  

If you opt for the PMT party, however, we’ll prepare and bottle up the necessary ingredients and send these to each of the team members through the post. Each box will include enough for six cocktails as well as a mini cocktail shaker and relevant garnishes for some extra pizzazz. 

Each class includes an interactive, online cocktail making class with our professional bartender who will put you through your paces and share some helpful tricks of the trade along the way. 

If you’d like to add a competitive element to the class, points will be awarded for the most impressive shaking, the best looking cocktail and the most Instagrammable photograph of the final drinks. We can even send out prizes post-session so there’s everything to play for.

Dust off your jam jars and fancy glasses, fill up your ice cube trays and earn your mixology stripes! 

Group size: 10-50
Duration: 60 minutes

ACF Teambuilding Game Shows

Game shows

We’ve even incorporated company-specific rounds for past clients to make the experience even more personal. 

Our professional compere will host proceedings to ensure that things run as smoothly as possible, so you can focus all of your attention on getting to know your colleagues, having a good time and maybe even scoring some points along the way!

This virtual workout is suitable for all fitness levels, with alternative moves given along the way, and is designed to be both simple to follow and as fun as possible. 

Following the surge in appreciation for exercise during lockdown, as reported by Sport England, Paris will show you that you don’t need fancy gym equipment to enjoy a worthwhile virtual workout. 

Simply pop your trainers on, fill up a water bottle, grab a towel and we’ll see you there! 

Group size: Unlimited 
Duration: 45-60 minutes

ACF Teambuilding Photo Mosaic

Digital photo mosaic 

If you aren’t able to enjoy one of our aforementioned events, you can still collaborate with your team to create one of our photo mosaic walls which have now gone digital! 

Employees are asked to send in photographs of themselves using a specific hashtag. These photographs will then be pulled together by our trusty team to create a digital photo mosaic, which sees the images combine to build a much bigger picture. It could be an image of your company logo, your core mission, a message to staff or promotion of your new product/service. It’s up to you!

This photo mosaic can then be shared company-wide and beyond as a way to reaffirm your collective spirit. 

Are you ready to book one of our virtual team building events? Would you like to discuss things further? Email us at info@acfteambuilding.co.uk for more information. We look forward to hearing from you!
