Derby businesses partner to deliver ‘unique’ team rebuilding and development experiences

Derby-based businesses AWD Development Solution and Altered Reality Zone (ARZ) are partnering to deliver what they are calling “unique team development and improvement events” for businesses and organisations.

The events will combine team development knowledge alongside the fun and exhilaration of Virtual Reality Escape experiences.

The sessions are specially tailored to suit each customers’ specific needs. They combine elements such as classroom-based activities and input, team member psychometric profiling and feedback, and experienced-based sessions. Alongside this, the sessions utilise virtual reality technology to help embed the learning.

The sessions are designed to run in a COVID-safe environment.

Andrew Deighton, director of AWD Development Solutions, said: “I’m really pleased to be working with the team at ARZ. When I first spoke to Claire I thought there was great potential to partner with them. Some of the most effective development events I’ve taken part in have been different and memorable. These workshops are both. The learning outcomes and the outputs the teams produce will significantly improve their relationships, how the team operates and therefore their team and business performance.”

Claire Hutchby, business development manager at Altered Reality Zone, said: “We’re excited to be working with AWD Development Solutions and bringing this immersive and exhilarating Virtual Reality technology into a learning arena. Our escape experiences are focused on teamwork and cooperation so they really lend themselves to team development events. If you’re looking for a training event that synthesises learning and Virtual Reality fun, then look no further.”
