Top 5 Team Building Ideas


At Fruitful we deliver hundreds of corporate team building experiences each year. From truffle making with Fortnum & Mason’s Head Chocolatier, Spanish wine tasting with a Master of Wine or becoming agents of Her Majesty’s Secret Service’ at our Agent Training Camp, we have an activity to suit everyone. But if we had to pick our favourite five, then we love The Summit, Crystal Maze, Country Pursuits, Charity Bike Build and our Creative Activities.

“The event was absolutely fantastic. All participants enjoyed themselves thoroughly and are still singing praises.” Orsted

“Nothing was too much trouble and everything went like clockwork. I can’t wait for my next event so that I can work with you again. Thank you!” Maple Knoll Capital Ltd

1. The Summit

Led by experienced survival experts, mountaineers and Everest explorers, your team will work with them to learn and understand the necessary skills and attributes required to climb their own mountain Summit – from preparing base camp to emergency planning ahead of the ultimate climb.

This event will give you a taste of what is needed to prepare for an Everest expedition. Your group will be split into small teams working around a number of zones. The teams need to work together to complete all the zones to ensure their place at The Summit.

Works well for: small and large groups
Duration: 2 – 4 hours

“We needed a team-building challenge to raise the game on any previous experiences. Conquer The Summit was a great and varied event which worked for everyone and Fruitful delivered beyond all expectation – our people are still talking about it.”

2. Country Pursuits

A wonderful way to use the estate grounds at the hotel and suitable for small and large groups.  Choose from traditional estate activities such as falconry and archery mixed with some more modern inventions such as Segways and laser clays.
