Our Virtual Team Building Events
Companies and employees have been separated into working in silos from home; this has undoubtedly changed the way companies and team members communicate.
Virtual platforms such as Zoom, Teams, and Skype have become the norm, but keeping people-driven, motivated, and part of the business or organization is challenging.
All of our hosted virtual events are designed to deliver engaging team building, motivation, and fun.
Why Choose Virtual Team Building?
Virtual team building is basically a process used by virtual teams to connect and form strong bonds through communication networks and digital technology.
Virtual team events take many forms, including team building games and activities that use collaboration technologies like video conferencing to keep the activities flowing smoothly.
Virtual team building activities that are strategically developed offer communication while promoting a shared team culture. These online team games and activities can also help minimize the interaction problems that come with working in a remote or virtual environment.

In this interactive event, you are required to act as a remote juror in a trial. The trial runs under the justice act (2020). The whole event can run for 90 minutes and can be played in teams. You and your team must act as jurors; therefore, you will have to question the accused, assess evidence, and also make a decision based on all that.
You must determine the accused's guilt while working with your other jurors—the defendant's use of evidence and interrogation.
The proof given is necessary for you to work. You will then have access to this material to ask the defendant questions concerning his case.
As things stand, those seeking to influence the jury contact audience members by SMS and emails. The Jury decides who tells the truth, how to break the plot, and if an individual must spend time in jail. It's up to the Jury. There are several conclusions with this event.
We’re Escape Team Events.
We’re creative. We’re original.
Our aim is simple: ‘wow’ you at every stage of the event, from concept to delivery.
WHY REMOTE VIRTUAL TEAM BUILDING ACTIVITIES MATTER
Virtual team building is essential because it mitigates the adverse effects of online working cultures. Additional reasons why virtual team development is essential to include the following:
WHY ORGANIZE AN VIRTUAL TEAM BUILDING EVENT WITH ESCAPE TEAM EVENTS
Effective communication enhanced productivity, and improved morale are all needed in an organization and escape team events can help provide your company with all that. Virtual team building essential benefits of using escape team events include the following:
Face-to-face communication is a considerably more effective means of forming the bonds that are necessary for efficient cooperation. However, collaborative team development exercises may readily replace face-to-face conflicts by becoming virtual.
It might be helpful to know that others are facing similar challenges as you, and you can even share meal recipes and other information. All of this contributes to the development of trust between virtual team members.
Loneliness is one of the most challenging problems that remote employees encounter while transitioning from office-based jobs to working from home.
Because humans are social animals, cutting them off from water coolers or lunchtime talks can be detrimental to their mental health. Everyone joins together and effectively combats loneliness by organizing participatory and enjoyable activities through video conferences. You’ll have plenty to talk about and relive after the event.
Increase your productivity.
Members in remote teams typically lack a strong sense of purpose in their work. This can lead to decreased productivity. Virtual team-building exercises, on the other hand, allow team leaders to convey the organization’s aims.
Employees that have a feeling of purpose are typically driven to do everything in their power to meet, if not surpass, corporate goals. As a result, the resource pool’s performance measure improves without anyone becoming exhausted.
Escape Events has taken everything we’ve learned over the years about team building and turned it into a complete portfolio of virtual programs intended to take all of the enjoyment, satisfaction, and importance of traditional team action and turn it into a full-featured live virtual team building activity. When it comes to cooperation, teams may still gain a lot from a virtual event. There are many contacts, conversations, and idea exchange—creative thinking, trust, and cohesiveness, particularly when a little friendly rivalry is involved.
Easy and simple
Our virtual activities-specific applications and platforms enable teams to form small teams, much like they would at a traditional team building event, and compete against one another in various themed experiences. There’s something for everyone, whether it’s breaking free from our virtual escape room, cracking a crime story, or virtually touring across the world.
Participate from anywhere
Our escape team activities take place at various places around the UK or throughout the world. Our virtual events are advantageous; the platforms operate precisely the same regardless of where you are in the world. Individuals and groups log in and join small teams as though they were all local exactly the same way. Our team offers straightforward participation packages to enable everyone to quickly login in a few seconds.
Compatible with a variety of technologies
We have a range of events using both a laptop, a smartphone, or a tablet. The activity is designed to make it possible for people to use traditional technologies at home. Our laptop-based games require a laptop and internet. Our app-based experiences need that users watch and engage on their laptops and then play real games via any smartphone. We are constantly on standby to provide a flawless event for every member, from our live hosts and tech staff.
Also, a webcam is needed. Almost all smartphones or tablets are basic, but preferably on your laptop too.
What is remote team building?
Team building, creating relationships, and maintaining these connections between employees when they are far away, is a process that requires ongoing attention. The physical distance among employees can quickly lead to a sense of being completely isolated, leaving remote employees feeling unsupported and estranged from their co-workers. In the end, this can have a negative impact on employee morale and possibly lead to higher staff turnover rates.
In its most basic form, remote team building is establishing relationships amongst remote personnel to create the illusion of a physical team for employee morale, productivity, engagement, and overall outcomes.
Why is remote team building important?
A Break From Zoom!
The virtual team building allows individuals to get a moment and have some fun with most people days back and forth using zoom/video chats. It gives remote employees breaks from a virtual meeting. Our activities provide a refreshing and totally distinct uplifting experience. We continually raise a lot of smiles, group interactions, and laughing.
Fun & Commitment
The work might sometimes feel like the day of winter with continuous zoom meetings. Virtual team building offers employees the opportunity to interact, switch from work and participate in a pleasant and entertaining experience.
The teams might miss the advantages, performance, and a strong team working together because of their lack of face-to-face communication. This might also involve exchanging ideas and information, cohesiveness, and working towards the same objective.
When operating in isolation, everybody needs a big boost. The social components of a virtual event are highly motivating and bringing together individuals to laugh, enjoy anything linked to work.
Investing in People
Traditionally, companies would spend time and money on employees with all sorts of yearly activities. This is continued through virtual team building, and employees are respected and appreciated.
When it’s so unfamiliar to everybody, virtual events may seem very frightening. Our experience is meant to be trouble-free of all aspects of your event with live hosts and professional event organizers.
Team activities frequently have predetermined goals and outcomes, particularly in terms of learning and growth. These may still be accomplished through virtual team building, with various activities aimed at different aspects of collaboration, but all with the same primary component!

Escape Team! Thank you for all
Escape Team! Thank you for all your hard work and flexibility in pulling together a very successful event. We had a blast. Our LilyAna and AleHorn New Year Party was filled with fun and enjoyment from the moment we entered the Rogue Agent virtual escape game to the Magic Show setting. What a unique team bonding exercise! Safe to say, we are not going to be hired by MI5 though. It is so meaningful to get to see our staffs’ smiling faces, their kids’ joyful giggles and participation.
Very heartwarming, genuine gratitude.
We look forward to tapping into your creativity again soon! Skal!
All-in-all a nice way to wrap up
We recently completed our virtual festive get-together with around 40 participants taking part in Sherlock: The Grand Debut.

All-in-all a nice way to wrap up the year in a different way!

Sherlock Holmes The Grand debut virtual escape room was a perfect Christmas pick me up for the staff and colleagues at Royal Haskoning DHV, and allowed everyone to get into the festive spirit from their homes, safely, while playing this really unique and mentally challenging online virtual experience. The murder mystery escape room was very well received by our colleagues and it also led to interactions between colleagues, towards a common goal, outside of work hours!
The team really enjoyed it and the game play was lots of fun with a range of different puzzles and challenges for every personality type and skill set!
Thanks again for your help, and we hope to work with you again in the future!

huge thank you to you and your team
I just wanted to drop you a note to say a huge thank you to you and your team for our Cocktail Masterclass party on Friday.
It made my sisters 40th birthday extra special during these crazy times.
Yuki our mixologist was amazing and great fun.
We will be highly recommending this to all our Friends and family.
Excellent value for money
We opted to use Escape Team Events after a very informative meeting with Tamara.
She talked us through the various events and gave us guidance based on our requirements.
Tamara was extremely friendly and attentive throughout the process.
Our objective was to bring the organisation together in these uncertain times, where we are all working remotely and on occasions feel a little disconnected, and this absolutely achieved that.
The feedback from everyone who took part is very positive. The event itself was very well organised and good fun.
The actors did an excellent job at creating a feeling of inclusion by a bit of light-hearted audience participation.
Excellent value for money, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Escape Team Events.
I will definitely be recommending to my friends
We had a great time, and Sherlock the Grand Debut was really good fun.
I have received really good feedback on the game play.
I also found the booking process very slick – from the time taken to inquire regards applying for the game etc. and receiving responses, invoice sent quickly too – it just made it all a smooth booking process, especially as it was getting quite close to the event (our fault!).
I will definitely be recommending to my friends and other colleagues who have not tried this and consider other events available for our team or personally again!
Everyone had a great time and enjoyed
Thanks a lot!
Everyone had a great time and enjoyed the game and the variety of puzzles in the Escape room.
Our 2 group events participated in "Sherlock the Grand Debut" for our Christmas party, catering for our staff based in different countries around the world for around 60 people.
All the teams chose to start in the room with the paintings, which I think is probably the hardest puzzle.
We had a great time and I imagine you'll hear from us about future events too. Thanks for your help!
It was a very unique and exciting experience
Manager / Supervision Taskforce / Supervision at Financial Conduct Authority
Thanks for your help on the organisation and execution on our Christmas Team Building event for our team of around 30 participants.

It was a very unique and exciting experience, that everyone found to be really an engaging and exciting group activity!
Hopefully we can look to work together in the future, whether that be a physical or virtual event!
Thanks again Tamara.
Thank you Escape Team Events for such a fun night!
Personal Assistant to the Director Warwick University
“Sherlock Holmes The Grand Debut was simply fantastic! Split into two teams with four players in each, we each made our way through the murder mystery solving clues along the way to discovering who the infamous killer was.
We had laughs, frustrations, giggles and much head scratching as we worked our way through, each team eager to beat our colleagues to be crowned the best detectives. The support and advice offered before and after the event was fantastic from start to finish.
Tamara was professional, prompt and always on hand and willing to assist us. We cannot recommend the event enough – we certainly enjoyed it far more than I think any of us expected to.
Thank you Escape Team Events for such a fun night!”
I would highly recommend it!
Head of Solution Consulting | Network Rail Telecom
At the end of a very challenging year our team needed to find a different way to celebrate Christmas. Obviously a conventional Christmas party is out of the question so we decided to look at virtual alternatives resulting in us donning our period costume and entering a virtual world of deception and mystery in the virtual escape room event “Sherlock Holmes the Grand Debut”.
Split into three teams, our Consultants and Business Analysts worked together in a classic ‘whodunit’ murder mystery in character as the young Sherlock Holmes.
There were plenty of tricky challenges, riddles and clues to follow not to mention large amounts of banter and Mickey taking which provided a great number of laughs and fun.
We all agreed it was a great way to close out the year and also helped our comparatively new team get to know each other a little better through teamwork.
Our teams also came dressed up in full character costume which really added another level of atmosphere to the event. If you are considering trying to do a team event next year then I would highly recommend it!
That was great!
That was great! Lots of good feedback from the team, they really enjoyed themselves!! We're so glad we chose this. Lots of boasting about breaking records going on too.
It was so nice to be hosted and have a good laugh with our team - we haven't seen each other in so long and this really made us feel like a team again!
Can't wait for the next one at Christmas!
Rogue Agent formed part of the virtual away day we were organising. The online escape was pitched just right in terms of difficulty. The teams really enjoyed the gameplay and aesthetics and as organisers for the event we received positive feedback afterwards too. This was really all down to the event hosts and staff. They took care of everything and allowed us to relax and actually take part, which is a rarity when we usually have to do all the running around. Can't wait for the next one at Christmas!
Just a quick note to say thank you
Just a quick note to say thank you.The team really enjoyed themselves. As we are in hard lockdown in Melbourne, it was a great distraction for the team. Everyone had only positive things to say. Please thank your colleagues too. How can we do more?
learn and have some fun, all virtually!
This week I had the privilege to join the UK Finance team’s virtual event themed on Change; bringing together our 100 person strong finance function to connect, learn and have some fun, all virtually! The event culminated in a wonderfully fun (and dare I say hugely competitive) virtual Escape Room experience, expertly run by Escape Live. UK / US
What are the benefits of virtual team-building events?
Boost Team MoraleWhen a team has high morale, it generates excitement and energy. This fosters a positive attitude toward teamwork and motivation. Boosting confidence and getting the team together has never been more essential than it is now.
Loneliness is a harmful sensation that will inevitably sneak in when everyone is forced to stay at home. Many people may seek refuge in their profession as a kind of socialization. A virtual team-building exercise will assist in bringing people who are alone into a group and giving them the opportunity to converse with another human being. Some persons who live alone may go for extended periods without speaking to anybody.
Working from home might make it tough to stay focused on tasks. A virtual team-building activity will bring your staff together and inspire them to work together more efficiently while also reminding them of their work goals. Remind everyone that we’re all in this together and that we’re still a fantastic group.
The game may be enjoyed at any time and in any location. It may be customized to your business needs, allowing you to send a message and inspire employees who may be going through a hard time in these trying times.
In remote working, employees can communicate better, collaborate, fix issues, and resolve conflicts when their connections are strong. Our activity’s objective is to develop relationships and teamwork during these trying times. Our virtual game is designed to assist team members in shifting their perspective from a “me” to a “we” approach.
During these trying circumstances, we may find ourselves getting sidetracked by sad news headlines all day. Teams find it challenging to inspire themselves to wake up and work in the same manner as before the crisis because of these disruptions. An engaging virtual team-building exercise allows teams to forget about the outside environment for a minute while motivating them to be calm and keep working.
When you’re stranded at home alone, your creativity might plummet. If you’re used to getting ideas off each other with your team members or used to coming up with fresh and exciting ideas, you could be upset by the prospect of being separated from your co-workers for an extended length of time. A remote team-building event provides you with the opportunity to be inspired and work as a unit.
The creation of a virtual team helps strengthen healthy behaviour from home. For instance, if your group has a big project due by the end of the week, why not arrange an enjoyable remote team building event to recognize their hard work?
We all know that funds are limited in these unusual times, specifically for events that aren’t considered necessary. On the other hand, virtual team building activities are far less expensive than traditional team building events. They offer the apparent advantage of having no venue fees because they take place in your own house! Considering this, the benefits of hosting a virtual team-building event significantly outweigh the low expense of putting one together.
Improve Communication In Difficult Times
During these difficult circumstances, people at home might feel alienated, which can adversely affect communication abilities. Communication has never been more vital in those challenging times. People may catch up with co-workers and enjoy each other’s company by participating in remote team-building activities.
