So we can guarantee fun…but being it’s the UK even in July we’d be crazy to guarantee sun!
We are holding one of our open events in London in July (late enough in the year to improve the odds of sun but before the kids break up from school) to give any who’s interested a chance to come and try one of our games.
Having run our Property Trading Game for the last few years it’s the chance of “The Game is Afoot” to get an open outing this year so if you fancy your chances against Moriarty then it’s time to step up! It’s an afternoon out of the office and we promise we’ll only try and sell you something at the end…
What’s in it for you? Obviously a blast playing one of our games but more importantly some time spent away from your desk with like minded people having a chance to reflect on your own development and how you perform in a team. We’ll even throw in a few beers and a pizza at the end.
So the details are:
7th July, London, The Game is Afoot BOOK HERE
All we ask is to take part you are someone who could potentially utilise our products in your work and that when you’ve had a great time, you tell people. Easy really!
If you were look for a stalwart of the modern organisational landscape you’d be hard pressed not to consider the away day. Generally a chance for a team to pause the day job and spend some time focussing on themselves hopefully in the name of improved performance (we guess!?). They range from a few hours in a meeting room to the most profligate we ever heard where 15 people flew business class to the US for two days spent in a hotel to then all fly back again!!
As HR people we often get involved with supporting and running other people’s away days but here at Kit Bag we are interested to learn more about the HR team itself and what (if anything) happens on an HR team away day. With that in mind we have prepared a little Survey Monkey aimed at those working for in-house HR teams (sorry consultants we’ll come to you later) to see if HR people take the time to develop their own teams and performance as much as they do for the rest of the organisation.
Therefore if you fit that basic criteria, would you mind awfully filling out the survey linked below – it’s only 10 questions and they’re all quantitative so should take you no time at all…
Kit Bag HR Away Days survey
Oh and while we have your attention – we are running another Demo Day where for the grand sum of £0 you can come and play one of our games with a bunch of other HR types and get beer and a pizza thrown in at the end. You can find more details here – it’s July 18th and we’d love to see you (and your colleagues)
The challenge we have is that once people have tried one of our games or simulations they seem to love them but getting people to try them is the challenge so we’re running a demo day. We’ll be very upfront about this we are trying to develop more business
What’s in it for us?
- The opportunity to demonstrate our most well used product
- The chance to build some potential useful relationships
- Seeing people enjoy what we do
- A great pizza and a few drinks
What’s in it for you?
- The opportunity to try our most well used product
- The chance to build some potentially useful relationships
- Having a day out of the office with likeminded people and the chance to reflect, share and take a step back
- A great pizza and a few drinks
The plan is to get a group of 12-16 people together, some practitioners, some consultants, some bloggers and us, and play our Property Trading Game in London. Followed by pizza and a few drinks in Soho. You would need to commit a day of your time, some energy and that’s pretty much it.
We are looking at dates in early November but won’t confirm until we have a good group together so please let us know if you’re interested.
P.S. Probably the easiest way to let us know is to comment here, thanks!
We now have 20 odd people and one definite date of November 24 with a possible on November 23
So the plan for Trainers Kit Bag was hatched late in 2010 but it’s taken this long to sort out firstly the technology and most importantly our product catalogue.
Bear with us as we set up the site and populate the product list but as soon as it’s full steam ahead, trust us – you’ll hear about it!
