Who are o3e?
A BCorp Certified Team Building and Events Company. We believe it takes 'only 3 elements' to make a difference - Business, Charity, Teamwork
Every business has the power to change the World for the better.
We work with businesses who have a purpose, a desire to make the world a better place for humanity and the environment. They want to engage with their employees and recognise that through team building challenges they can help their communities and local, national and international charities.
Our clients are world class and through our portfolio of charity focused team challenges we help them with their events across the globe.
How it all started
Peter founded o3e to enable every company, large and small, to use its staff engagement activities as a way to positively contribute towards making the world a better place.
Peter had worked in events for 11 years, prior to founding o3e. Witnessing first hand the time and investment wasted on frivolous team building events. Also how little attention was focussed on engagement and inclusion. An epiphany:
“I was asked by the company I worked for at the time to try out a new event, I call it ‘the polystyrene moment’. I was asked to carve and paint 3 blocks of polystyrene to make a totem pole to reflect their organisational values! I still find it hard to believe that someone had thought that this was a useful use of time and resources. Needless to say I resigned and created o3e.”
Charity Bike Build was o3e’s first activity, an activity where teams spend their time creating something of real value.
o3e’s first client was an investment bank and during that first event, we built 34 bikes that all went to an East London charity virtually opposite Peter’s old school. The day we delivered them alongside our client was a truly memorable moment.
o3e has since then operated over 400 events in the UK and Europe, worked with over 25,000 people and through our client’s given away more than £1,000,000 of equipment and monetary donations.
o3e are real pioneers developing solutions that get to the heart of social problems and compelling our industry to move with the times.
