An important settlement for more than two millennia, Paris had become the largest city in the Western world by the 12th century and remained so until the turn of the 18th century. Today, Paris is still one of the world's leading business and cultural centres which you can explore via the Paris Treasure Hunt.
If you want to avoid the moans and groans that accompany the announcement of a team building day, organise a Paris treasure hunt!
The Paris treasure hunt develops all of the key workplace skills, delivered in a cost-effective package. With traditional teambuilding, there is usually a tedious and dull theory session or two with loads of standing around, waiting for your turn or freezing in the rain. Well, we can't guarantee the weather but we can guarantee that everyone has the opportunity to be involved all of the time. Each team must plan their route first as there is no set route and there are more clues than could possibly be answered in the time available.
There are clues for everyone, some require observation, some are cryptic, others are straightforward and there are some that will make you groan when you finally figure out the answer!
The supplementary tasks will engage and challenge your staff to use their initiative - lateral thinking, negotiation and communication skills are all needed.
The Paris treasure hunt also has an element of competition which certainly helps with teamwork.
The history of Paris goes back at least 2,000 years, during which time the city grew from a small Gallic settlement to the capital of France. It is still a matter of debate as to where it all began, when the tribe, the Parisii, settled in the region. Today, Paris is a multicultural centre yet each arrondissement has its own local character. The streets of Paris are filled with amazing nooks and crannies and, as well as coming away with a well motivated and coherent team, you will have seen Paris as never before!
