Its Tyne to get the team back together again!

For the past year, being together with our colleagues and team members hasn’t quite been the sameFrom working in our living rooms and socialising online, to having to meet new colleagues and undergoing training virtually, we’ve all experienced a lot of change that none of us could have ever seen coming. 

And whilst we’ve managed to keep going and the pub quizzes on Zoom have been fun, it’s time for positive change and for us to get our teams back together for real! 

As we head towards the next stage of the government roadmap which allows business events and meetings to take place, why not start planning a unique experience to bring your team back together?
