Paris is a city with so much to offer – especially for a corporate event. It can be challenging though to find a way to make the most of it – to combine your corporate goals with your attempts to build team relationships all the while experiencing the city itself, so we’ve come up with this list of advice for your team building in Paris.
Team building in Paris is likely one of the biggest elements of your corporate trip. You’ll want to find a way to get everyone involved in something together. We’ve made a list of our top team building activities in Paris, and whether you are a small group or a large group there’s something for you.
A scavenger hunt anywhere is a great way for people to work together and form relationships – and what could be better than participating in one in the center of Paris. You can create these yourself, or you can use an outside company to plan it for you, but either way, it’s definitely a great way to tour the city while also building connections with your team.
Food is a huge part of what makes Paris so famous, from its delicious boulangeries to its classic French restaurants there’s so much to try. What better way to experience their yummy foods than by taking a cooking class. A class will give you and your team the chance to not only learn how to make certain recipes or a chance to try foods, but also the opportunity to work together and get to know one another in a fun setting.
Wine Tasting Class
Not only can a wine tasting class be fun (and surprisingly educational!) but it can also be a great activity for team building in Paris. It’ll give your team a chance to be around one another in a very comfortable setting, and to bond over a shared experience. Often these classes encourage talking among your group as well as engaging with the topic at hand so it’s a great way to spend time with your corporate group.
Along the Seine, you can see many of Paris’s famous landmarks, including the Eiffel Tower and Notre Dame Cathedral so it’s definitely worthwhile. A great way to make this a bonding experience for your team is by organizing a dinner cruise. This gives people a chance to both see all these landmarks, and to talk and laugh together in a fun and unusual setting.
Escape the Room
You can find these in many cities all over the world, but that doesn’t mean they’re not a great activity for team building in Paris. Escape the rooms often require you to break into smaller groups which can be an excellent way for your team to bond really closely with a few others. You can find many of these spots all over the city but just be careful to choose one at your desired level of difficulty.
There are numerous options for a tour of Paris, from busses, to bikes, to even Segway’s and all of them can be a great chance for you team to bond as well as to explore and get to know the city. Make sure you check all the options available before booking, because there may be special deals available for groups.
Day Trip Somewhere
If you have time during your trip, you may want to go out of Paris for the day. This is a great idea because your team will have a chance to spend the entire day together exploring and getting to know one another. It will also allow you to see some new sights outside of the main city.
