CIT Awards 2017 Winner Team Building

Approximately 50 personnel from the club attended our Elite High Performing Team event and workshops in the Brecon Beacons. They were from 20+ global countries, so bringing together different cultures, approaches to the team.

They stayed at our purpose built, residential centre set in 73 acres situated in the National Park. From the moment they arrived until they the moment they left, they were interacting, learning and developing their physical, mental and emotional skills to further improve their elite performance ability by working more effectively and efficiently as a unit.

The outcome was that they won the rest of their games following the event and stayed up in the English Premier League, so saving them £millions in lost sponsorship, ticket sales and merchandise opportunities. They also developed a strong set of core values and a symbolic shield of their values is now embedded into their games, their ethos, their culture and their fabric at the ground (literally).
