Derby businesses partner to deliver unique team rebuilding and development experiences

Derby-based businesses AWD Development Solutions Ltd. and Altered Reality Zone (ARZ) are partnering to deliver unique team development and improvement events for businesses and organisations.


If you’re looking for a different way to restart and reenergise your team, and bring them back together, then this workshop is for you. Combining years of team development knowledge alongside the fun and exhilaration of Virtual Reality Escape experiences, you will be able to enjoy a synthesis of theory and Virtual Reality. Whilst in the VR world, you and your team might find yourself flying through space, hurtling along an under-ground train track or firing lasers from your hands in order to meet your ultimate Team goal.  It’s totally different from any training event you might have been to before!

The sessionsare specially tailoredto suit eachcustomers’ specific needs. However, 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 cutting edge Virtual Reality technology to really help embed the learning.

As you might expect, the sessions are designed to run in a COVID-safe environment. You can work, learn and collaborateclosely together in the virtual world, whilst remaining at least two metres apart in the real world. It’s the perfect answer to Team Building in 2021.

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.
