21 Jun ’The Apprentice’ themed event at GH
Last month, we gave Lord Alan Sugar a run for his money, as his former contestants made themselves at home in our very own boardrooms. Hire a Pitch hosted The Apprentice stars: Kathrine Louise Burn, Sophie Wilding and Lewis Ellis. The corporate event included different challenges in theme with the television show.
Who are Hire a Pitch?
Hire a Pitch are known for providing different sport pitches up and down the country so that they can be hired out by different organisations, communities or individuals. Hire a Pitch are also well known for their corporate and team building events, from sports days to wackier activities. On this occasion, Hire a Pitch were hosting their ‘The Apprentice’ themed event, with stars from the show in attendance.
The challenges included:
- Ultimate corporate challenge – the team players were briefed on a unique task – this included going to different locations to source the cheapest item.
- Negotiation challenge – the team who could bargain the best won.
- Marketing video – for the special test challenge, the team is commissioned to make an advertisement video which is then graded by an independent panel.
How Grosvenor supported the event
Grosvenor House were requested to provide both Bar 11 and the Executive Boardroom for the event – the feedback received suggested the team were very happy with their location. When the teams were required to go to Birmingham Bullring to source some supplies as part of their challenge (tasked to find the ‘cheapest item’!), they were very impressed that the town centre was just a mere 15-minute walk.
Although we couldn’t help the teams with the challenges, our front-of-house services were always on hand to cater to their every need. When their hard work was over, the team could enjoy refreshments and a well-deserved break in the reception area. Participant Amanda Martin commented that Grosvenor House were cooperative and communicative leading up to the event:
“[They] answered every email for our corporate day out. We organised an apprentice themed event for our client, and we were never worried.”
The team also benefited from parking directly outside the facility for the whole day 8:30am – 5:30pm.
Here at Grosvenor House, we were incredibly happy to host such a fantastic event and to be of service to Hire a Pitch. Find out more about the services that Grosvenor House offers – including our vast virtual office packages, co-working spaces and more.
