Outside the Box

Bright Vision’s ‘Outside the Box’ has been designed specifically to highlight the importance and benefits of individuals and teams by recognising the value of communication and working together as one force.

Perfect as a team building event at any time of year, we also produce a special Christmas version, designed to bring out participants' festive spirit.

The event highlights and draws on some key indoor team building dynamics, all of which can engender positive feelings of Health and Wellbeing, including:

  • Negotiation,
  • Time management,
  • Co-operation,
  • Strategy planning, and
  • Communication.


The programme provides “something for everyone” which is ideal as some challenges focus on team tasks and others on individual
performance. The overall activity demonstrates the advantages of team communication by utilising a mix of fun, teamwork and
unusual activities with themed  challenges included – all scored on a “qualitative” basis.

How it works

The activity starts with each team being given a locked case, inside which is their full brief for the event. The first task, of course, is to open the box, which is locked with a combination lock. Each team is given 4 clues to help them open their case.

Once open, each case will reveal a selection of team building challenges and tasks that the teams must complete in the given time frame. The objective for each team is to make as much ‘money’ as possible by completing a wide selection of challenges as well as they can from over 75 “Money Challenges”.

The teams can take as many Money Challenges as they like in the time available (they won’t manage them all), in any order, but everything is scored on a qualitative basis. This means that the better each Challenge is executed, the more money will be awarded by the team’s adjudicator.

Now the Team Building Skills Required Kick-In!

It soon becomes clear that the teams will need the help of other teams. Only by careful planning and using keen negotiation skills can they execute the tasks effectively. Some of the props provided in the locked case will cause confusion and teams will have to attempt to understand the purpose of their presence as the event builds.

Throughout the event more and more clues are solved and only then does it become apparent that some parts and props might be missing from each team’s box making it impossible to complete certain challenges without negotiating and collaborating with other teams.

The tasks fall into 4 categories:

  • Creative,
  • Physical,
  • Performance-related, and
  • Mental agility.
