Why Tank Driving Should Be Your Next Corporate Event


In the modern workplace a company has to stand out from the pack to get ahead. There are many ways they can do this, but perhaps the greatest strength it has are its employees. Motivated and committed as they might be, they have to, above all, be able to work as a team with the same aims and targets. But how does your company ensure this?

A Corporate Day

Typical corporate days have followed the army model. Taking place at sports centres or similar, opposing teams compete to maybe find a way to cross a stream using only three planks – you know the type of thing.

So why not go for a real military challenge rather than this amateur version?

A tank experience at one of the many excellent venues around the country, such as https://www.armourgeddon.co.uk/tank-driving-experience.html, will give your team a chance to work together and to learn new skills – everyone who goes on such a day will learn to drive a genuine tank. For more information on these tank driving days, check out: http://www.tankdrivingexperience.org.uk/.

With expert instructors on hand, each member of your staff will share the joint fulfilment of completing a defined military objective, whether it is reaching a strategic target before the other team or even just completing a rigorous authentic circuit in command of a vehicle you had never even seen before that morning.

Your people will discover their own strengths and weaknesses, but they will also learn about the often surprising capabilities of their colleagues as they strive to complete this once-in-a-lifetime experience.


Natural leaders will be found among the unlikeliest candidates. Mutual support and a genuine respect for each other will grow as everyone becomes part of a functioning single unit. They will have learned how to become a real team.

And there is no reason not to include your customers in this too. A day spent alongside each other in this most testing – and fun – of environments will give clients and suppliers a rapport that can only lead to better business interactions in the future.

And your staff will have shared a unique common moment, one that will set them up and make them ready and willing and prepared to take your company forward into the future.
