Managing a Team? Here Are Four Things You Should Know
Stepping up to manage a new team can be a challenging business. You are likely to be pulled in multiple directions, have new goals to achieve and need to deal with an array of HR issues.

Here are four tips to help:

• Be a team player ­ It’s a phrase that’s bandied around a lot but it’s true. Being a good team player is about pitching in alongside your team - rather than above them - and playing to each other’s strengths. As well helping your team gel, team members will respect you more if you’re getting your hands dirty too.

• Delegation’s what you need ­ To avoid ending up doing all the work yourself or lumping the workload onto one or two team members, effective delegation is critical. Distribute work evenly and communicate clearly what is expected and how an individual’s task relates to the big picture.

• Invest in your team ­ If a team member is keen to learn something new, or try a new way of working, encourage them. Don’t be afraid to blow budget on appropriate training and development. Fresh skills will benefit the individual, your team and, ultimately, help your business area progress.

• Get to know your team ­ Take time to get to know your team as individuals. As well as making them feel valued, it’s important to find out everyone’s strengths and long-term goals. Arrange a regular night or fun ice-breaking team building activities.

From pizza making to Segway racing, Lane End Conference Centre offers the best team building events in the South East. Call us today on 01494 881171.
Fun Pizza Making Activity!
Make Your Own Pizza | Team Activity - £49 + VAT per guest

Are you looking for something different? This is a perfect team activity facilitated in a relaxed and fun environment. The activity serves as a great ice-breaker for new teams and can strengthen working relationships in existing teams.

The activity takes place on the Pavilion terrace with a wood fired Neapolitan Pizza oven and lovely views of the grounds.

Guests will be given an apron and chef’s hat to work in. They will be shown how to make and prove their own dough and there will even be a Pizza dough throwing competition with prizes.

A true outdoor culinary experience, everyone will be making and enjoying their own Pizza, garlic bread and dessert Pizza using the wood fired Neapolitan Pizza oven.

Indoor option:
If the weather isn't good enough for an outdoor activity then we can facilitate the pizza-making activity inside the main Pavilion room - it is a spacious room with high ceilings and floor to ceiling windows over-looking the grounds.

Maximum group size is 40 and minimum 12. This can be a lunch or dinner activity. Call us now to check if the Pavilion is available for your next Pizza making activity - 01494 881171.
Cutting-Edge Technology Installed at Lane End Conference Centre
Lane End Conference Centre has upgraded its existing suite of projectors with new state-of-the-art LCD data projection systems.

A leading location for conferences and live events, the popular Bucks training centre has replaced projectors in four of its principal training rooms - accommodating around 90 people each ­ with innovative Christie LW401 data projectors.

As well as easy to use, the new high-performance projectors deliver razor sharp images and graphics, perfect for professional-level PowerPoint presentations.

Benefits of Lane End’s new data projection system include:

Increased brightness ­ At 4,000+ lumens the new models are 25% brighter than the previous projectors and are excellent for creating high quality, crisp, clear images.

As well as providing optimal brightness for Lane End’s large conference rooms, the additional light supports note-taking and discussion during training sessions.

Simple wireless set up -Presenters don’t have to be connected to their media source to present. Content can be accessed wirelessly via laptop, USB stick or over the network. This allows for a super quick set up and smooth handover between multiple presenters.

Excellent connectivity -­ Despite its rural location Lane End Conference Centre is a super-efficient Wi-Fi ‘Hot Spot'.

Video conferencing services at the centre start from £600 for a meeting via Voice-over Internet Protocol (VoIP) application such as Skype, to £1,000 to create a bespoke streaming solution.

Heni Fourie, Sales and Marketing Manager at Lane End, said: “We are committed to giving our clients an exceptional conference environment.

New Refurbishments At Lane End Conference Centre
Lane End Conference Centre is embarking on a new round of refurbishments to further enhance the quality experience for delegates.

Wycombe Lodge - one of five self-contained buildings at the popular UK conference centre - is to undergo a major makeover that will include new larger dining facilities.

The refurbished dining room will lead into a new large conservatory with a purpose-built buffet area, comfy sofas and patio doors opening on to a large terrace - perfect for enjoying a relaxing drink while taking in the views across the centre’s golf course.

New ceilings, flooring, walls and furniture will match the design and feel of the newly refurbished dining room in the centre’s nearby Wycombe Hall building.

All the bedrooms in Wycombe Lodge will receive a full refurbishment including structural changes to improve natural daylight.

Each room will have a new large patio door opening on to a small balcony. Rooms will also be fully air conditioned. Other improvements to the lodge bedrooms will include:

full-sized double beds to replace the four foot beds
brand new bathrooms
new fresh and comfy interiors.
Buckinghamshire-based Lane End’s Sales and Marketing Manager Heni Fourie said: “Part of our ethos of continual improvement is regular investment back into the venue to ensure our facilities continue to be of the highest standard - clean, modern, fresh and functional.

“This latest phase of our ongoing refurbishments will enhance Wycombe Lodge as a self-contained building with the very latest in residential conference facilities.

“Wycombe Lodge’s conference rooms for hire are already extremely well equipped but this new refurbishment will bring in the next generation of equipment.

“Delegates can expect modern en-suite bedrooms, a comfortable lounge, bar and a contemporary dining room - all available for exclusive hire,” he added.

Wycombe Lodge is the most self-contained of the five buildings at Lane End Conference Centre.

Like all the buildings at Lane End, Wycombe Lodge can be booked for exclusive use - offering delegates maximum privacy for optimum productivity.

Wycombe Lodge offers delegates:

one main and one medium-sized conference room
five smaller conference meeting rooms
dining room, bar and lounge
35 en-suite bedrooms.
Refurbishment work has being carefully scheduled to avoid disturbing delegates attending events in Lane End’s other conference buildings.

Work on the bedrooms will be carried out in five-week phases, starting on Monday June 17th and concluding in November.

Refurbishment of the dining room at Wycombe Lodge is due to start at the end of July and take around a month.

The latest refurbishments follow an ambitious programme of work completed at Lane End last June with the launch of a new boardroom that can be hired for senior executive meetings or private dining events.

Work included free high speed broadband (up to 100MB) plus new bistro dining facilities for Wycombe Hall.

The team also carried out structural work to give Wycombe Court bigger windows and higher ceilings to let in more natural daylight and give delegates even better views of the 26-acre landscaped grounds.

Lane Conference Centre is based in a stunning countryside location just an hour’s drive from the centre of London. It is easily accessible via fast motorway and dual carriageway links.

Unlike other conference centres, Lane End offers free superfast broadband and plenty of free parking.

The centre hosts a wide range of events, ranging from conferences, training, reception days and retreats to team building challenges such as motorised beer kegs, archery and chocolate making classes.
