On the day of the event we were well prepared with some quirky and high quality prizes. We rewarded the top 3 winning teams bronze, silver and gold medals with the winning team receiving a Simon Gault Stainless Steel Saucepan.
Only one person never turned up and we started with drinks and mingling with great chatting before the event kicked off.
We handed out personalised name badges on arrival so that everyone felt comfortable approaching attendees that they hadn’t met before and this worked really well.
We then handed out pre-deterimed Team Leader personalised aprons and they got to choose 3 aprons randomly that would become part of their team. Each team members role was defined and the Team Leaders got to preview the array of food ingredients available.
After a brief from the highly entertaining Chef Lindsay aka Gorgina Ramsey it was a race for the Team Leaders to grab their ingredients, make a plan and execute the cooking.
After the allotted time frame – the teams had 5 minutes to plate an entree version for the Chef’s judging table. While we all enjoyed eating our creations the Chef’s diligently tasted, critiqued and ranked each dish.
There was plenty of laughter and banter and everyone had an absolute blast.
After our lunch the critique was delivered and the prizes handed out.
We were then treated to a beautiful Panna cotta for desert which everyone enjoyed.
We were super impressed with the creativity and quality of the food presented and we got some wonderful feedback at the event and post event.
Take a look at the fun in the kitchen that was had by all in the images above.
CLIENT TESTIMONIALS – POST EVENT
Thank you for the invite to join the My Team Rules event last Friday – what a creative and unique way to meet people and have a little fun in the kitchen! Every detail of the event, from the personalised cookbooks and aprons, right down to the organisation of the team challenge was masterfully prepared and presented. I take my (novice chef) hat off to ActionHQ for their creativity and can’t wait to see what they come up with next!

The MTR event was such a great way to end the week. Getting the chance to meet new people of all different cooking abilities and then work together to produce something that we all got to enjoy was such a unique and different way to network! I’d highly recommend this for a team building activity as well or even just for some fun with friends and would like to thank Action HQ for organising this event and taking the time to make sure that we all had a great time.

Hi ActionHQ Team
Thank you for hosting us at the My Team Rules event, was a fantastic, challenging, lots of fun and great for networking. I was really impressed by the clever campaign, which caught my attention and I’ve showed to my wider team as an example of a clever, personalised Direct Mail piece.
