Innovative team building

Would you like a fun, high energy, interactive, hands on opportunity to see how your team work together under pressure or just understand the dynamics of drawing from new found strengths?

Who are we and how are we different?

Andrea Ives Consulting has teamed up with a number of exclusive cookery schools accross the country to offer you a unique cooking experience which will enable you to have all the fun, team bonding and interaction that is needed to make a fast paced, highly enjoyable experience, but also come away with a strategy and plan for effective working in the future.

The Kitchen

We don't believe that any one experience will be the same given people learn, think and work in different ways, environments and cultures. Whether its cooking against the clock, taste testing, or a medley of different culinary techniques, we will use our highly experienced chefs to create a personal menu and fun experience for you and your team.

What happens after the event?

As you will be assigned with your own consultant and business coach prior to the event, your company vision and values are already understood. individual assessments can be done during the event to then be fed back and followed up once the individual(s) are back in their working environment. As I'm sure you agree, it is only when you implement learning that you know if it has worked or been understood! We offer follow up coaching to embed your company values and support your team members to be the best they can be, giving you a return on your investment.

Emma Gilpin-Jacobs - Global Director of Communications - Financial Times
I worked with Andrea Ives for several years while I was Board Member running the FT Group's Communications. In this role, I had specific oversight of  the external and internal communications for the Group companies globally, and developing key skills within our teams was vital in moving the company successfully along its complex and fast moving transition to digital media.   Andrea played a huge part in helping me target and provide suitable learning and development programmes for key managers across the globe. Her advice and contacts were indispensable - as was her supportive and collaborative working style.
