Behind the Scenes of Creating ‘Betrayers’: Our Newest Team Building Sensation

Betrayers Logo Team Building Experiences

In the ever-evolving world of team building, the quest for innovative and engaging experiences is endless. At Team Building Experiences, we pride ourselves on pushing the boundaries of creativity to bring unique events to life. Our latest adventure, Betrayers, is an example of one of our latest team building creations. As we unveil this thrilling new team building experience, we invite you behind the scenes to discover the journey from concept to execution.

The Spark of Inspiration

The idea for Betrayers ignited when we noticed a surge in demand for themed team building events. Companies were on the lookout for something that mirrored aspects of intrigue and suspense but tailored for the corporate environment. This led us to brainstorm how we could capture the essence of such an event while adding our unique twist to create an unforgettable team-building event.

Designing the Experience

The creative force behind Betrayers, our Creative Events Director Dan Neale, envisioned an event shrouded in mystery and suspense. As a former event host, Dan was keen to make the event as immersive as possible so it would stand out. Dan’s concept revolved around integrating psychological elements and suspense into the games, creating an atmosphere where every decision could lead to success or betrayal.

Through various meetings with Events Director Sophy Burrows and Managing Director Laura Kelly, Dan was able to use inspiration and ideas to create an initial event concept.  The event featured a mix of quick icebreaker games to foster initial connections and more complex puzzle games designed to challenge teams’ collaborative skills.

Overcoming Challenges

To make the event immersive and unique, we needed to make props which brought new design challenges. We needed to ensure all event materials were designed with consistent branding in mind. We had to keep in mind that these materials needed to be sustainable as they would be used for every event so we needed high quality materials.

In terms of game creation, they were initially created for smaller groups in the testing phase. Adapting the games for larger groups posed a significant challenge. The games had to be the right balance between being challenging but possible. Through a series of in-house demos, we prototyped and refined the games, ensuring they delivered the intended experience while accommodating varying group sizes. This iterative process, culminating in a final demo with internal participants, allowed us to adjust and perfect the event based on real-life feedback.

Creating an Immersive Atmosphere

To immerse participants fully, we incorporated thematic elements such as atmospheric lighting, props, and background music. Our hosts and event staff, dressed in character, play a pivotal role in enhancing the experience, guiding participants through the event with a balance of professionalism and theatrical flair.

The feedback from our initial demos was invaluable, leading to the refinement of our games and the overall event structure. The highlight came during our promotional event where we invited external participants with no prior knowledge of the event, to come and enjoy the final product. The engagement and joy of participants confirmed that our months of hard work had indeed paid off. Witnessing a room full of people, thoroughly enjoying the Betrayers experience, was a truly rewarding moment.

With the feedback we received and the success of the event, we were confident that Betrayers was a fully formed, immersive team experience ready to launch for company team building events.
