Blog – King of the Swingers!

Although we consider ourselves to be a very friendly bunch here at WLD, we would never turn down the opportunity for some good old fashioned team building (and the excuse to spend an afternoon out of the office!) so, yesterday, Thursday 15th May, off we all went to Go Ape! at Swinley Forest, Bracknell.

Go Ape is an award winning high wire forest adventure course of rope bridges, tarzan swings and zip slides all set high up in the tree tops 30 feet from the ground, so naturally, it sounded perfect!

Although at the beginning of the course the language emitted from a few specific members of staff was enough to make your eyes water (along with the particularly ‘well fitting’ harnesses on the boys!), it was great to see confidence, team spirit and a genuine sense of achievement grow as everyone helped each other to complete each section of the course.

Here is what a couple of the WLD staff had to say about the event:

“Go Ape was a great experience, it was challenging to take people out of their comfort zones and work as a team to overcome the tasks!”

Sophia Vitellaro – General Administration Team Supervisor

“I had a wicked time, I started out really nervous as I’m scared of heights but everyone was so supportive which helped me to get to the end. I found myself working with people I don’t usually work with in the office. Being thrown into an unusual situation really makes people work together as a team!”

Charlotte Ebel – Customer Support Coordinator

Well done to the entire WLD team for massive effort and enthusiasm, which made it the fantastic experience that it was.
