Team-building events in Venice, Italy



Ca’ Macana has been organizing team building activities in Venice for many years. We use our Venetian mask-making courses as the basis for these team building events. However, we tailor our events to meet the needs of any companies interested in outside-the-box and inventive team building activities in Venice.

The Venue
Participants in our team building events get to use our workshop along with all the necessary materials and techniques needed to make Venetian masks.

How does it work
Each group is usually divided into teams with each or all teams being assigned a certain goal.

Skills training - skills display
In addition to hands-on work, our team building activities require a lot of communication and basic synergy among participants - that is, teamwork in the best sense. Our team building activities are an effective way of practising these skills and for the best talents to shine.

Moreover, an
important characteristic of our team building activities is that they put participants in unusual situations, where companies’ managers can observe participants’ ability to coordinate, cooperate, compete, application of problem-solving skills, etc.

Variety of tasks
Sometimes, team members have to develop a concept and work collectively on a single mask (which in this case will be larger than normal, to give everyone a chance to participate). 

On other occasions, there are as many masks as participants in the team and they have to coordinate each other in order to choose a strong theme that unites their creations.

Sometimes teams are organized in a hierarchical structure, with clear tasks for each individual to perform. Alternatively, teams can be left free to self-organize their internal structure.

Our role
We provide materials, venue and technical know-how regarding the realization of the masks. We set the situation in which the team building activity can take place.

As often there are some elements of competition, our instructors can act as external judges and choose the winning team based on criteria decided in advance with the team building event organizer.

 

An example of team-building experience in Venice


This is an i
nteresting example of a team-building event we organized in 2017 for top sales managers of Reckitt Benckiser, a leading multinational company in the cleaning products sector.


1 - Participants were divided into four teams. Each them was considered an independent company and had to compete with the other teams to develop a new product and launch it onto the market. The product was represented by a blank papier-mache Venetian mask.

2 - We demonstrated a set of different decorative techniques to use on Venetian masks, along with facts and features of different materials

3 - Each “company” had a virtual budget. According to their project, team members had to allocate resources to purchase a particular model of a mask, buy materials for the decoration, understand the appropriate technique(s) to use, establishing a base cost for the final product.

3 - Each “company” had a virtual budget. According to their project, team members had to allocate resources in order to purchase a particular model of a mask, buy materials for the decoration, understand the appropriate technique(s) to use;  thus establishing a basic cost for the final product.

4 - Each team had to decorate its mask/product with an appropriate style, design it for its target market and sell it at a final price suitable to it.

5 - The teams had to organize the decoration work within themselves, establishing who was best suited to each stage of the work. In this way, each mask passed through everyone's hands and became a result of cooperation between the team members.

6 - Once the decoration was completed, each team explained to the company's managers the cost, price to the public, sales strategies. They also had to motivate the choices in decoration, explaining why the mask had the right style to succeed in that particular market segment.

7 - In the end, the competition was won by two teams that agreed to join forces establishing a partnership, resulting in a more cohesive and effective overall strategy.



As you can see from this example, our decoration courses are perfectly suited to the most diverse needs. We propose ideas and solutions based on our many previous experiences. We are always happy to adapt our format to what the company considers most important for its purposes.

Ca' Macana provides unique and memorable team building events - among the highest-rated team building activities in Venice, Italy.
