After the hard yards of the normal business day it was time for the senior management team at Robinson Services to offload the normal day to day worries and concerns and set off for a Team Building day.
On this occasion it was off to Belfast Harlequins Rugby club in Deramore Park, Belfast for a team building day in association with Offload Rugby. Offload Rugby has been set up by Alasdair McKee and works with organisations to improve productivity, communication, team work and responsibility, through a combination of fun classroom and pitch sessions alongside motivational talks. They are given the opportunity to construct their own fun, rugby based games and apply the skills uncovered in these to their workplace.
Alasdair has worked in development roles with Ulster Rugby as well as having been Head Coach of Ulster Juniors and coaching within the Ulster Clubs under 16s and under 17s squads. He is IRFU Level 2 accredited and also an IRFU Tutor and Observer. Alasdair is the Head Coach of Grosvenor RFC and has previously been Head Coach of both Enniskillen RFC and Academy RFC. He set up Offload Rugby in May 2015.
A key member of the team at Offload Rugby is Stephen Ferris, A British and Irish Lion in 2009 with 35 Ireland caps and 106 Ulster caps, who worked with the Robinson Services Team on the day with both classroom and pitch based exercises.
David Robinson Managing Director, Robinson Services commented: “We were delighted to tie up with Alasdair and Stephen as they build up their new business and we wish them every success. The certainly provided us with a day out with a difference and the day was a great success for everyone who participated. We now look forward to putting the lessons learnt on the day into practice on our own pitch as we seek to grow our business throughout Northern Ireland and beyond. Thanks once again to Alasdair and Stephen for their input on the day – Offload Rugby certainly have a winning lineout in my opinion.”
