Management Meetings for a French Law Firm

Organisation of a meeting to motivate the employees of one particular Law Department of the Branch Office in Lyon.


Event: Team meeting with coaching sessions.
Group size:  17
Nationality: France
Date: 23rd to 25th October 2013
Location: Barcelona


REQUEST: We were asked to plan a meeting with a duration of 3 days aimed at developing the motivation and ambition of the members of the Law Department at the branch office in Lyon.
Our mission was to provide a centrally located 4 star hotel including a meeting rooms for the coaching sessions, lunch and dinner options for the young and trendy participants, together with team-building and fun activities which enabled them to discover the city and achieve the company’s objective of improving their staff’s motivation, ambition and success.
The event was planned to be held at the end of October 2013, in Barcelona, due to the temperate Mediterranean climate and the popularity of this beautiful and exciting city to attract young people for its fun outdoor activities and nightlife.  Lyon is connected with a direct flight to Barcelona, which is always an advantage.

• Welcome with a private bike tour around Barcelona with a French guide, upon arrival - coffee & croissant stop and visits to enjoy the rich architecture for which the city is famed.
• Lunch in a modern local tapas restaurant in the centre of Barcelona with a tasty tapas menu.
• Meeting in a conference room with a coach on the subject of – ‘Ambition -  how to find it and exploit it!’
• A treasure hunt to discover the ancient Gothic Quarter -  Las Ramblas, Boqueria Market and El Born quarters whilst ensuring the team-work of the participants. This amusing competition included several obstacles and challenges along the way like dancing with the locals, researching  the ingredients for a popular recipe, answers to cultural questions, artistic activities and photo shoots. Awards presentation upon arrival at the Hotel.
• Aperitifs in a very trendy hotel lounge bar and the opportunity to appreciate the Barcelona nightlife and breath-taking sea views.
• Dinner on the terrace of a beach club restaurant offering Mediterranean and Asiatic cuisine at Port Olimpico followed by a party and dancing till the early morning.
• Meeting in the conference room to continue to develop the theme of the event: Ambition.
• Picnic lunch on the beach of Barceloneta - several kilometres of soft golden sand!

CHALLENGES: A major challenge was trying to combine, in a tight timescale, the organisation of the business aspects of the event whilst providing an enjoyable taste of life in this bustling city which would leave lasting memories.
Also, how to keep a group of bikers from getting separated from each other in the busy winding streets of the city – but it worked!
A number of the participants asked us to book them a massage during the free time as the hotel did not offer this service. We soon succeeded in booking a very well-known Thai Boutique SPA for all the interested guests!

RESULT: All the participants were happy to combine their business meeting with the leisure activities we arranged which enabled them all to relax together and enjoy their break from the daily routine of office life.
During the meetings, the strengths and weaknesses of the company were put into question and the coach did an exemplary job of bringing out the participants’ best skills in order to develop the ambition of the team.
The company were very grateful for the way we anticipated their needs and felt that the event was very well organised and flowed smoothly, enabling the organisers themselves to relax  and enjoy their time in Barcelona with the rest of their team.
