Cambray Corporate Away Days - Why We're Different

Training 4 min read

There are a huge variety of corporate away day options available to the modern business owner, HR manager, or team leader. With all of the options on the market, how do you choose the away day that is right for your team? This article outlines why Cambray corporate away days are so unique and why they stand out from the competition.

Location, location, location

It's important to base your away day in a great location. A Cambray away day is held in the heart of the Cotswolds countryside, in a beautiful hotel venue.

Surrounded by nature, your team will be a world away from their usual place of work. In this low pressure, non threatening environment they will be able to relax and be more open to discussing, accepting and implementing change in a positive way.

We offer a pre-away day diagnostic and post-away day check-in

Cambray corporate away days differ from other away days services as they are not simply a 'one-and-done' event.

Our Cambray coach will meet with team leaders, business owners or HR managers in advance to discuss specific challenges faced by the team. This means that our coach can begin to plan the away day around your team's specific requirements.

We also offer a post-away day check-in to make sure that momentum has not been lost, and to give advice on how to sustain progress.

Cambray corporate away days are tailored to you and your team

Our Cambray coach will not only meet with you before the away day to discuss your team and their challenges. The coach will also get to know the team themselves during the day and tailor the content and approach as needed.

Tailor a corporate away day around your team with Cambray

For example, let's say the away day starts and completely unknown to you, your team feel that there are communication issues in the workplace. Our coach has a wide skillset and can be very flexible in responding to specific needs. He would be able to implement some work on positive communication techniques into the away day.

This means that Cambray corporate away days aren't simply churned out with a one-size-fits-all approach. Rather, they are tailored to the specific needs of you and your team, based on information provided both beforehand and throughout the away day.

Cambray corporate away days are fun and practical

When considering an away day for your team, you want to be sure that time isn't wasted. Of course, you want your team to have fun. But you also want to be sure that any skills learned will benefit them in the workplace.

Cambray away days offer fun, engaging activities for your team which also focus on areas such as performance, communication, creativity, mindset, stress and change management, among many others.

This means that any skills learned by your team during the day are transferrable to the workplace. They'll learn important workplace skills - and they'll have great fun!

A Cambray away day won't just benefit those who attended

Perhaps the biggest selling point of a Cambray corporate away day is that it doesn't just benefit the team who attended, but also benefits your organisation on a wider level.

A Cambray away day doesn't just focus on team-building in a bubble. We encourage your team to begin to implement a positive team culture which is anchored around creativity, positive behaviour and good communication.

We support your team to begin to implement this behaviour. We help them to develop the tools needed to bring these techniques back to the wider organisation in a sustainable way.

Our experienced Cambray coach

The last reason that a Cambray corporate away day is so unique comes down to the diverse background and skillset of our away day coach, Peter Anderson.
