Based on feedback from participants, this year was again a massive success. 99% rated their overall experience of the Corporate Games as either Extremely Satisfied or Satisfied, with 96% agreeing that their morale has increased, and 73% increased the amount of exercise/fitness level as a result of taking part Steve Greatley (Karting Team Captain) said ‘the World Corporate Games in Leeds was a fantastic event and again brought people together in a fun and competitive environment outside the office’. The Great Games Party on the Saturday, once again saw Intel well represented with everyone making a fantastic effort with their fancy-dress costumes, and a good balance between having a good time, while making sure it was possible to complete the next morning.
Once again thanks for the weekend, our teams had a fab time and are already talking about next year – your team was amazing and I know that you bent over backwards to help us out at some points! I would be really interested to hear more about next year’s Games and about any trips you arrange for prospective participants. Again, thank you – please extend my thanks to all your team too.
I know that I speak for the rest of the KPMG team when I say that we thoroughly enjoyed it and can’t wait to take part again next year.
Just like to say, on behalf the ASDA Dragon Boat Team, a huge thank you for the cracking Corporate Games last weekend. This was my third games, and in my opinion, the best yet – Coventry will have a lot to live up to!
Just wanted to congratulate you and your team on yet another fantastic Games. One of the best yet. The badminton facilities at the Sir Tom Finney Sports Centre were exceptional. The team from Badminton England did a superb job supervising the badminton events and ensuring everything ran smoothly. I sincerely hope the same team are available for the next Games. Myself and the rest of the LBG badminton squad are already looking forward to the 2013 Games in Coventry. Congratulations to all on a fantastic 2012 UK Games.

I found it truly amazing that companies were sending 2-3 hundred people and from countries all over the world, we played a lovely badminton couple from sunny Barbados and they were greeted with rainy Leeds. It would be lovely to see Atos Origin employees from all over the world at these events.
The John Lewis Partnership has been with the Games since it began and we don’t plan on changing that.

On behalf of #TeamCGA I would like to thank you and all of the Corporate Games Team for a fantastic weekend. We had a brilliant time at all of the events we took part in and everyone has been buzzing since we came back into work. The highlight had to be the Dragon Boat and we have some great footage from a headcam we put on our Drummers head. Anyway it was a hugely heart-warming weekend and Diane our CEO was very impressed. So here is to the 18th Corporate Games and lets look forward to the 19th.
We have supported our associates’ participation in the Corporate Games for many years. The Games and Towers Watson share many core attributes, including integrity, collaboration, respect and excellence. To be successful in the Games or the business world, organisations need healthy competition and great team work; for this reason Towers Watson is delighted to become more closely associated with the Corporate Games.
Absolutely fantastic weekend all round. Pencil us in for next year…it’s just a shame that the Games only happens once a year.

Thanks to you and the team of organisers who ran the event so smoothly and made the weekend so enjoyable. Everyone I spoke to had a great time.
It was the first time that Jones Lang LaSalle had taken part in the Games and we fielded a large team of over 150 employees from across our English, Scottish, German and Dutch businesses. I feel our entire team had a unique opportunity to get to know staff from other areas of our company and also to network with many other business people.

The Games was a chance for the RAF team to flex their muscles against the corporate giants of HSBC, JP Morgan and others.
Leeds Met University Sports Participation Officer Sarah Humphreys said, ‘The World Corporate Games has been a fantastic opportunity for staff and students to come together over the course of a weekend to participate in a variety of sports whilst, at the same time, enjoying meeting new people from a whole array of companies and organisations from around the world. ‘It gives staff an opportunity to create and experience team spirit and to represent their place of work, whilst enjoying the many physical and social benefits that sport can bring as well. ‘The Games has also given Leeds an opportunity on an international stage to showcase its excellent sporting facilities to thousands of people

The weekend has been a re-sounding success from IBM’s perspective and we have received some great feedback from the group. Preston was a great host city, UCLAN’s facilities were world class and the weather wasn’t too bad either. The Corporate Games should be proud.
