Motivate and inspire
An incentive to Britain will inspire and motivate. There are a range of ideas and suggestions to ensure your people have a once-in-a lifetime experience.
With a host of activities in Britain such as attending one of our many sporting events, playing 18 at the home of Golf, staying in a castle, fine dining at the hands of a famous chef, whisky tastings, world-class spa retreats, shopping and unique venues, there’s something for everyone. Britain’s countryside provides an invigorating environment and backdrop to explore and team building experiences that involve learning a new skill are increasingly popular.
Britain offers a range of experiences to motivate and inspire. To see some of the sample programmes on offer, please click here. Leave the organising to the professionals and work with British-based DMC’s who can tailor programs to suit your needs:
Take over an exclusive castle in the most northerly part of Scotland and dine and wine like a King. Arrive by helicopter to Ackergill Tower a 15th century castle and one of the worlds most sought after exclusive use retreats where you will be met by a piper and a glass of local whisky. Explore the rugged countryside in an off road vehicle, travel across the waters to the magnificent and magical Orkney Islands and experience some true Scottish hospitality.
Participate in a Highland Games event and enjoy some interactive and fun teambuilding before enjoying a whisky tasting and falconry display. As a finale enjoy a Scottish banquet and learn how to do some Scottish ceilidh dancing. See Travel ScotWorld .
Enjoy a typical 'Englishman’s’ outdoor pursuit morning starting with clay pigeon shooting, long bow archery and falconry followed by lunch in one of our traditional local country pubs. Combine this with a meeting in London and a private champagne capsule on the London Eye, whilst watching the sun set on the capital is a sure-fire way to impress clients or colleagues. See HighLife Conference & Incentives .
Take an exclusive Tour of Wisley Gardens led by the curator himself or a private tour of the great English Country House of Goodwood with His Grace, who can talk in great personal detail about the history behind the property. Follow this in South West England with champagne cocktails at the Roman Baths or dinner on the terrace overlooking this fabulous Roman city. Back in London, head out on a private City Tour with VIP visit to St. Paul’s and the American Chapel. Finish your stay by attending the ancient Ceremony of the Keys at the Tower of London as a VIP. See Hospitality Line .
Enjoy hospitality at its best with a tailored solution at one of Britain’s established events. Enjoy first class service at any of the countries top sporting and social events including The PGA Tour, The Ryder Cup, The Open, Wimbledon, The Six Nations, The Grand National, Royal Ascot, The 20/20 Series, Henley Regatta, Burghley Horse trials or Silverstone.
Perhaps participation is more enticing? A company golf day - including lessons for beginners - or, if chasing a little white ball doesn't appeal, a multi-activity day (4x4 driving, clay-shooting, fly-casting and more) or your very own Highland Games, (with kilt-hire too!) or white-water-rafting or the Sport of Kings - Polo. See Wedgewood .
Spend an afternoon at a distillery which will include a private tour and tutored nosing and tasting. You are also given the opportunity to blend your own scotch. Dine at the distillery with a masterful whisky dinner. A departure by helicopter could take you to a private castle for a personal tour and dinner with the gentry that own the amazing venue. The evening culminates in a splendid finale with a ‘Beat the Retreat’ by a first class pipe band. Arrive at The Royal Yacht Britannia for a private evening on board – to include a drinks reception, 5-course dinner and a stunning fireworks display at the end of the meal. See Dream Escape .
If you want an incentive with a bit more adventure, then suppliers in Britain can offer a number of different opportunities. These could be anything from JCB Digger driving to sea survival school and from cycle tours to dragon boat racing.
The cycle tour guide won't overwhelm you with mind-bending dates and boring stories. Instead, he or she will offer a great orientation, lots of unique and fascinating stories, fantastic photo ops, a comfortable bike and superb personal service.
For the more competitive, 20 people paddling side by side in a boat 40 foot long; a drummer, sitting in the prow beating time, a oarsman at the stern with a giant paddle, all working together as one. The ancient sport of Dragon Boating is unique as it is requires no previous experience and caters for all ages and abilities in one crew, male and female. Above all it’s exciting, motivating, very social, fun and keeps everyone occupied.

There is nothing quite like attending a major sporting event in Britain and nothing quite like attending in style. Whether it is an English Premiership football match with fine dining and executive box facilities; Horse Racing at the iconic Royal Ascot; Tennis at The Championships in Wimbledon, or perhaps the Formula 1 British Grand Prix at Silverstone, these are experiences that are available in Britain and only in Britain.
Throughout the year there’s the opportunity to combine an incentive trip to Great Britain with first class hotels and restaurants and the renowned backdrop of world famous tourist attractions - together with a visit to the sporting event of your choice. See AKA Leisure .
