Wildgoose MD Jonny Edser said the drive in business was down to the company’s creation of three new Christmas-themed events. These events were designed to promote festive cheer through teambuilding, while doing something out of the ordinary.

The three events were the Ho Ho Ho Quiz with seasonal trivia; the Ultimate Festive Pub Explorer, a Christmas-themed pub crawl and quiz; and Secret Destination, a two-hour challenge where participants had to set out to find their Christmas dinner and party venue.

Clients who opted for the Christmas events included CRBE Portugal and Vodafone.

After the event a Vodafone spokesperson commented: "It was fantastic and I think it was the best team event activity we have ever done, partly down to enthusiasm of the Goose team, which really got a buzz going."
