Lane End Creates New Experiential Learning Centre
Lane End Conference Centre is developing the first major experiential learning centre of its kind for the London area.
Lane End’s new experiential learning facility will host more than 20 different physical, mental and team building challenges specifically designed to enhance workplace performance.
Experts at Lane End have teamed up with Hi5 Events to create the new learning centre for client Challenging HR.
Buckinghamshire-based Lane End is the perfect setting for the innovative new development because it is just 30 miles from London and Heathrow - making it ideal for the capital’s major corporates.
The new experiential learning centre will bring unique benefits to clients of Lane End Conference Centre.
All the experiential learning activities will vary in duration from 30 minutes to three hours. They are designed to draw out learning around the behaviours, processes, skills and natural abilities normally used in the workplace.
Delegates will be able to assess their effectiveness and personal behaviours - allowing them to consider the alternatives and to increase their skills.
Completion is scheduled for April 2011. Lane End Sales and Marketing Manager Heni Fourie said: “We are working closely with Hi5 and Challenging HR to develop the activities in line with their requirements.
“This is a very exciting development and certainly one that will add value to the overall experience for many of our clients.”
Although the new experiential learning centre will be situated conveniently close to the capital, it has been designed to serve the entire UK and also international clients as a major centre of excellence.
“Lane End has always enjoyed an excellent reputation as a key centre for team building activities UK-wide thanks to our extensive facilities. This new experiential learning centre will be another major leap forward,” said Mr Fourie.
“In the current economic climate, event organisers need to be absolutely certain that the experiential learning and leadership coaching in which they invest delivers proven benefits to the bottom line.
“That is why a dedicated experiential learning centre run by experts at an internationally renowned residential conference centre is the logical choice.”
Hi5 Events Director Andrew Lewis said: “We were asked to suggest a quality venue with sufficient outdoor space within the Home Counties with the aim of developing fixed challenges for training events.”
The new experiential learning centre will build on Lane End’s success over the past three years as one of the UK’s leading team building venues. During that time Lane End has hosted more than 150 team building events on-site.
With more than 40 different fun team building ideas and activities already available at Lane End, the new experiential learning centre will add significantly to the facilities - creating an even more extensive choice of options.
Challenging HR Managing Director Simon Bound said: “We are delighted to be working with Lane End to create such a unique training venue. The Lane End team has an enviable reputation for customer service and the location is perfect for our clients based in and around London.”
Lane End Conference Centre and team building venue is set in 26 acres of Chilterns countryside with easy access to the M4, M40 and M25. Its facilities include 34 conference rooms and 104 bedrooms.
Lane End Conference Centre has been privately owned and successfully managed for more than 40 years and is a member of the Conference Centres of Excellence.
