We offer virtual team building with quiz events suitable for all. If you need to re-energise your attendees virtually, wherever they are in the world, this could be the answer! Using Zoom, we set up the virtual event for you and send links so you can invite the team. Arrange your colleagues in to equal sized teams and you’re ready to begin!
‘Game Show’ Style Online Events
We’ve developed an exciting burst of ‘game-show’ style interactive virtual trivia that lasts just under one hour. Therefore, you can fit it easily in to your schedule. For Christmas events or standalone office parties, we offer the Virtual Spectacular for up to 500 attendees. This online event won’t demand too much time or effort from your remote workers because it’s easy to access. And it will give the opportunity to promote some friendly rivalry! You can see everyone’s faces as they gets answers right or wrong – these virtual online trivia sessions certainly raise a few smiles…
Our Virtual Trivia Events Encourage Team Building
Setting Up Your Online Event Is Easy
Our virtual events work best for groups of up to around 75 people, however we have catered for as few as 10. For live events for groups up to 500, we offer a Virtual Spectacular – a slightly longer version suited for a large group of attendees. Whatever the number we can quiz your team online whether it’s in one group or various sessions. If you have a really large group we can set up multiple events, or create a virtual quiz league. It’s less of a webinar feel as these multiple person events allow every participant to have their cameras on and live streaming in real-time. If you would like to run recurring online events, then the price per quiz comes down per session. You can be sure the content is fresh for each time because we give each group new challenges and questions.
This Virtual Event Idea Is Not A Boring Webinar!
A Quiz Coconut online event is not another webinar… Check out some of our testimonials here or on social media using the links at the bottom of the page. Our virtual corporate event idea was created and fine tuned in the time of Coronavirus and Covid-19. A new product was born! Because they can be enjoyed anywhere on the planet, they’ve become a popular alternative. So we’ll be offering this as a virtual experience ongoing as a fun way to break up endless boring webinars! It’s a way to give your attendees a continued virtual event experience. Why not establish a recurring monthly virtual team building trivia league and keep your team happy even after social distancing ends?

Our Corporate Events Build Virtual Culture
Since the pandemic began event planners in companies have been looking for ways to boost office culture, when their workers are at home. Virtual events boost office culture, which is important during these uncertain times. Companies can use our online events to increase morale and therefore productivity. We definitely miss entertaining at traditional corporate meetings, sales kick offs, trade shows, happy hours – with live presenters and real attendees. However we can now offer virtual event ideas, with some benefits. Now we can entertain across all time zones! Online team building for the win! You can also please the team without having to hire a venue, deal with their event planners, navigate event platforms and Google endless blogs and influencer profiles for the next big team building idea.
Virtual Team Building Activities
So what happens at an event? We use Zoom because it’s the easiest event platform in our experience. Watch the video and you can see some live action shots from previous company sessions and an explanation of the rounds that are involved. A typical team building virtual event involves live streaming a ‘game show’ style event, with lots of energy, variety, and fun rounds. We include a Price Is Right Challenge, a Name That Tune music round, along with tried and tested trivia and pictures. A thrilling speed bonus round finishes the session which builds on the virtual culture because it allows any attendee to win bonuses for their teams. We even have interactive challenges that get attendees running around their own homes looking for items!
Event Planning And Event Attendees
Once you’ve decided on a virtual online trivia games event idea, you can leave the entertainment expo to us! In advance the only event planning you need to do is ensure your teams have a line of communication between them to discuss their answers. Any online conference software is good, or a Whatsapp group. If you have a company Zoom account they can use the dashboard chat function using a hashtag for particular people. We can’t use breakout sessions for big groups, it becomes fiddly and detracts from the atmosphere.
Other Benefits Of Online Team Building
We customize the content to your company and for our Virtual Spectacular events can include bespoke extras in the virtual format. You can include prizes, gift cards, for winners – though this isn’t essential because people are happiest just to beat their colleagues! After the Zoom session is finished, our presenter will hand the hosting over to you – so your colleagues can socialize. You could set up breakout rooms for smaller meets or have one big communal get together. Keep the spirits high and ride the wave of the virtual event idea you’ve just enjoyed. People may be gunning for a rematch next week or next year, or share their wins on social media with stickers. You will have plenty of talking points!
What is Quiz Coconut all about?
For the majority of the 2010s we’ve been putting our energy in to live real-time ‘in-person’ ice breakers and corporate events. We’ve hosted hundreds of team building events for companies such as Google, Disney, Pepsi, banks, accountancy firms, law firms… and plenty of start-ups too. Covid-19 dealt a temporary halt to that; so we’ve put all our efforts in to new projects. The main being virtual event planning and hosting, and a podcast is imminent. As we approach 100 hosted online team building events, we have the skills to bring fun to remote workers. James, Luke, Elaine, Angela, Anabelle, Alex (and around 20 others) are the quizmasters you can rely on! Find out more about us.
Virtual Events FAQ
Do people play as a team or individually?
You can do either! We recommend for work departments that teams are best, to promote team building and build up some friendly rivalry. In cases such as webinars, conference ice breakers or when attendees don’t know each other very well, playing as individuals can be more successful.
Do we need to prepare anything?
Just split your group in to equal sized teams in advance. Ensure they have a line of communication set up for discussing answers, such as Slack, WhatsApp, Facetime, Skype, Teams or equivalent.
If playing as individuals, you do not need to do this.
We will provide the event link and answer form link which you will need to distribute around your attendees.
We have a diverse group. Is this suitable?
Sure is! Our content is tried and tested on varied crowds of all ages and backgrounds. We want to make sure no one at our virtual conferences feels left out!
How do we submit our answers?
One person on the team will be the ‘answer form filler’ and be given access to a simple Google form.
Won't competing teams hear our answers?
Good question! The host will mute all participants so you can discuss your answers with only your team via the other communication line without everyone in the main Zoom room hearing what you are saying.
How do you prevent people using Google?
It’s impossible to totally stamp it out, however a lot of the content is ‘un-Google-able’. We also have a couple of questions designed to expose cheaters… and if people are found out the host can embarrass them in front of the whole Zoom chat!
What if we are new to Zoom?
There is just one link to click, and the host will give a quick ‘how-to’ before we start. The event room opens 15 minutes early for anyone who needs help.
Can you use any other program than Zoom?
In our experience, Zoom is best for this. It’s the most widely used and the easiest to navigate. We are also able to use Webex, which is almost as functional.
We can’t use MS Teams as you can only have 9 videos going at once and Google Hangouts is limited. However these work well for arranging the communication of the quiz teams themselves.
Do you use break out rooms?
Unfortunately, break out rooms don’t work for this because the presenter can not be in all break out rooms simultaneously. Unlike some virtual conferences or webinars you may have attended. Also, when you have 50+ people, managing the break out rooms becomes very fiddly and time consuming!
What if we have a technology problem?
It can happen. Power cuts and other unforeseen technology issues can get in the way, but thankfully not very often. If drama happens, we try to have a back-up computer on hand to relaunch the Zoom system with alternative means, and if not, we will reschedule your event.
People's perceptions of Zoom meetings are negative. How can you overcome this?
This is our wheel house! We put more energy into the tiny camera on our computers for your benefit than you’ve seen since lockdown started. Coronavirus has given us more Zoom exposure than we ever thought we would have in a lifetime. Allow us to bring a game show event experience, laughs and banter to your remote workers’ homes!
Will we have a good time?
Yes! Check our testimonials. One recent team said “they hadn’t had fun on Zoom for four months” until their Quiz Coconut event!
