Corporate Teambuilding Company
Uplift Events was founded in 2005 after an ‘Amazing Race’ event organised by Sam for a birthday party, led Conant and Sam to establish an events company that offered the people of Melbourne & companies who believed in corporate team building, a fresh, exciting and fun new activity.
With over 16 years experience working in the corporate industry between them, both Conant and Sam were looking for a change. They knew the importance of uplifting team morale and celebrating successes within the corporate world through corporate team building activities. Something they witnessed being neglected by many team building companies that emphasised on conference team building only. Having participated in many corporate team building events themselves, they found that many companies didn’t have the time or know how to reward their staff with something new and exciting and ended up doing the same old team building / social activities such as bowling, company lunches/dinners, conference team building and drinks at a pub.
After quitting their corporate jobs, they both set out on creating a company that filled a gap they saw in the market for team building events that were uplifting, fun, unique and most importantly, customisable. They felt employees needed to be rewarded with personalised events through corporate team building activities that were not only fun & memorable, but provided them with a sense of satisfaction and achievement.
With this vision, they started to research and design an ‘Amazing Race’ event that was not only enjoyable, but great for fitness and health. By December 2005, the first public Melbourne Amazing Race® was launched with great success. Since then, Uplift Events has gone from strength-to-strength providing many companies and people from the general public with the unforgettable team building experience and enjoyment of an Uplift Events’ event.
Uplift Events also has a passion to give back to the community. Each of Uplift Events’ public events proudly supports the Royal Children’s Hospital.
‘To create tailored, uplifting and memorable event experiences with outstanding personalised service’
Uplift Events is committed to the following company values:
1. Providing outstanding and personalised service to our clients.
We have a commitment to provide the highest level of service to our clients through our staff and services we offer. This commitment stems from a dedication to provide a personalised service to our clients through all the stages of an event (lead-up, on the event day & post event).
2. Providing rewarding, uplifting and unique events.
Uplift Events supplies personalised events/activities that are not often readily available in the market to corporate companies. We provide clients with an experience that leaves them walking away with satisfaction and a sense of achievement, while also meeting their goals. All events and activities are designed to assist with developing teamwork, problem solving, communication, competitiveness and decision making while also having fun.
3. Having friendly, reliable and helpful staff.
We achieve this through a high number of friendly and quality staff that help execute your team building event on the important day. For example, we offer a true “Amazing Race” experience with staff at every checkpoint – so that the event isn’t just a scavenger hunt. This ensures we have more staff running our events than other ‘similar’ events out in the market.
4. Providing value for money for clients with different budgets.
We work closely with our clients to tailor our events to suit their budget and requirements. We offer customisable events which are quoted accordingly depending on duration, size, budget, lunch, type of activities and the additional extras such as trophies, water, MET tickets etc.
5. Providing variety and different events packages and options which can be tailored to meet our clients’ needs.
We can design the event to have challenges to accommodate the demographic of the client and the locations they would like to visit. Each of our events are uniquely tailored to each of our clients, so that no two clients will ever have the same event. We do not sell set event packages, instead we work with our clients to ensure each of the activities and challenges are designed to test the competitive nature of the participants, improve communication, working relationships (both personal and professional) and team cohesion. It will inject motivation into the staff, and provide them with a drive and goal to work together to achieve an outcome – something which can be applied back in the workplace.
6. Respect, value and empower our staff.
Uplift Events promotes a unique, fun and enjoyable work environment for our staff. We like to give everyone an opportunity for growth and provide an open forum for staff to give useful feedback and suggestions to help the operations of the business. We aim to be recognised as an employer by choice by the employees and general public.
