Meet The Teambuilding Team
We’re a fun bunch here at The Team Building Company. We strongly believe in the old adage of work hard, play hard!
James Morris - Sales Manager
Likes: Cooking, Fishing, Good Food and Fine Wines
Dislikes: Camping, Festivals, Negativity
Favourite Event: Cocktail Making
James joined TBCo in 2010 and has progressed to become the Sales Manager. With a wealth of event knowledge there won’t be a venue in the country he doesn’t know, having sampled a G&T at nearly all of them!
James joined the sales team after two years ‘in the field’, running our events all over the country giving him excellent first hand experience. His larger than life personality means that the office is always full of laughter and cookery advice…
James is a keen sportsman (Proud founder of the TBCo running club) and enjoys a spot of fishing. He has yet to land ‘The Catch of the Season’…
Matt Arnold - Operations
Likes: Hip Hop, Socialising, Southampton FC
Dislikes: Portsmouth FC
Favourite Event: Great London Treasure Hunt
Matt joined us in 2015 having graduated from Kingston University where he studied History. Whilst a student Matt worked as field staff on our events gaining significant first hand experience of both our events and many of the venues we work with across the country.
More often than not wearing a Saints shirt in the office, Matt’s always keen to discuss “last night’s game”.
Outside of work, Matt loves going to watch his team play and, not just the spectator, enjoys a game of 5 aside football when he can (We just don’t let him go in goal!)
Alex Tyley - Sales
Likes: Music & Arts
Dislikes: Too much milk in a cuppa
Alex joined our field staff in 2018 gaining invaluable first-hand experience within our events, venues, and ethos which forms the backbone of how we work across the country. There's no event he hasn't done without receiving gleaming feedback, which has resulted in a recent move to becoming a full-time addition to the sales team. We see a fun and fruitful future ahead.
Outside of work, Alex loves exploring his creative side, mainly via music production and illustration. It is this creative thought process that feels like a fresh approach to problem solving that comes in handy in many scenarios.
It seems almost impossible to make Alex angry, but seriously... do not put too much milk in his tea.
Sally Rosser - Senior Project Manager
Likes: Wales, Dining out, Cheeky mid-week glass of wine (or 2!)
Dislikes: Bad weather
Favourite Event: Rocket Launch
Sally is our Senior Project Manager, a tour de force - she oversees everything in the office. Her knowledge and attention to detail means that all events are executed perfectly. Having joined in 2007 there’s very little in the events world she does not know.
When in Sally’s care, you’ll be filled with complete confidence and she is always on hand to answer any questions you have regarding your event.
Sally loves to travel and will chase the sun throughout the year! She’s known to enjoy an occasional wild night-out but likes nothing more than relaxing with a glass of wine and a good book.
Olivia Barton - Project Manager
Likes: Festivals, swimming & James' cooking
Dislikes: loud eaters
Olivia, also known as Livvy, moved into the team after excelling with her outstanding people skills in the field as an Event Manager. Her frontline experience gives her a valuable insight in to what makes our events so successful, as well as skills which make her a good person to know - she is a trained Chocolatier and Archer.
Her background is in professional childcare – which has certainly given her a keen sense of fun and a zest for life! In her spare time Livvy loves to travel, go to festivals and keep fit.
Rob Baxter - Operations
Likes: Pulse Ranger, Making things happen
Dislikes: Vans returned to the unit dirty
Favourite event: Spy School
When it comes to event management, Rob has overseen almost every event you can imagine. Rob is also responsible for the maintenance of our equipment and vehicle fleet. He organises the load lists for our events and his military precision means everything is efficient and bang on time.
A member of the team since 2007, he loves his work and always shows tremendous enthusiasm. The warehouse is widely complimented for being kept completely immaculate.
Outside of work, Rob is a passionate cook and virtually everything eaten in his household is home cooked or grown from the butter upwards.
Lotte Fletcher - Events Manager
Likes: The Netherlands, Bodyboarding
Dislikes: People being late
Lotte is one of our most versatile event managers, with a Masters in Japanese from a Dutch university! Having previously worked as a VAT consultant for Deloitte, Lotte has a wide and impressive skill set – not to mention fluent in several languages.
As an event manager Lotte really can do it all and is also our head Chocolatier, a master of all things chocolaty… it’s a tough job sometimes, especially having to try all of our clients freshly made chocolates!
Outside of work Lotte is a keen actress, performing in local plays and shows, which also makes her the perfect host for any of our Parmesan Job events!
Ryan Duncan- Events Manager
Likes: Reading a good book and keeping up with the Kardashians
Dislikes: People speaking in a baby voice!
Favourite event: Hidden Quest Treasure Hunt
Ryan is one of our most senior Event Managers and has been working for the Team building company and our sister companies for many years now, making him an old hand at almost every event we offer!
Ryan became one of the many lockdown Dads, and is also doing a psychology degree alongside working meaning he’s great at juggling many plates and thinking on his feet! With his caring nature, quick wit and collective manner he always gets great feedback from our events.
Stuart Hedges - Director
Likes: Diving for Scallops, Sauvignon Blanc
Dislikes: People being late
Favourite event: Rib Treasure Hunt
Stuart is one of our two directors. He oversees all operational tasks and can turn his hand to pretty much anything.
His ability to get things done constantly impresses us, if there’s a problem, Stuart will sort it. This has led to any impossible feat being overcome to be known as “Doing a Stuart!” Stuart and our other director, Richard, joined forces in 2001.
As a Yachtmaster, you will often find Stuart out on the water on one of our Ribs. When not on the water, he will probably be in it, diving for Scallops in a secret location that only he, and a handful of others, know about!
Richard Ward - Director
Likes: Red Trousers, Evenings at the Yacht Club, Fine food
Dislikes: Staff eating breakfast in the office
Favourite event: F1 Challenge
Richard is our other director and accountant. Richard's speciality lies with the overall management of the company. He has an impeccable attention to detail that can often veer into OCD (as he will often admit) but this results in a tightly run ship from the top down.
Not many people genuinely get excited by spreadsheets but Richard does! Having previously worked in large multinationals, he got out of the rat race to start a small business – since then everything has rather snowballed…
When not in the office, Richard enjoys nothing more than spending time on the water, racing with friends or driving Ribs.
