As part of the annual teambuilding exercise, in conjunction with Bluehat Group, employees at Venues Event Management split into five teams for their Guinness World Record attempts. With only a couple of practices before the official Guinness World Record adjudicator arrived, it was every team for themselves.
The teams at Venues Event Management were competing to break the following record: Fastest time to pass 8 tennis balls 8 times; most potatoes carried between knees in 3 minutes; fastest time to build a 10 layer cup pyramid; fastest time to pass 8 t-shirts 8 times.
Although no records were broken, Venues Event Management came close to a couple. See the result here:
Fastest time to pass 8 tennis balls 8 times, 17.2 seconds – official record 14.54 seconds
Most potatoes carried between knees in 3 minutes, 21 – official record 33 potatoes
Fastest time to build a 10 layer cup pyramid (team 1), 1 minute, 55 seconds – official record 1 minute, 51 seconds
Fastest time to build a 10 layer cup pyramid (team 2), attempt uncompleted
Fastest time to pass 8 t-shirts 8 times, 2 minutes, 10 seconds – official record 1 minute 41 seconds
Charlotte Cornwallis, Head of Sales from Bluehat Group says:
“The teams really pulled together and were encouraging one another with some top tips and ideas to achieve the record attempts. The atmosphere in the room was not only tense but you could feel the support for one another which really shows how strong a team Venues Event Management are. Although through all my experience of working on world record attempts, I have never seen the official adjudicator reduced to tears – I would suggest more practicing is required next time.”
Anita Lowe, Chief Executive from Venues Event Management commented:
“The record attempts we went for, although they may seem slightly unusual, they are all something we offer within our team building service and our Summer 2012 Hoolie. It is important for the team to build their product knowledge of the services we offer and if we can do this through attempting to break world records ourselves then what better way to experience them.”
