Here are what some of our clients say about Damien TEONG!

Thanks to yDamien's Leadership coach TEAM and we have got very positive feedback from our colleagues! They are seasoned professional not only in guiding the activities, but also demonstrating high "EQ" when communicating to our TEAM, especially when some of them have other ideas/plan to do other things. I myself also appreciate the way Damien and his TEAM communicate with us is very smoothly and pleasant, regardless whether they have been mentioning something several times. I'm glad that I chose you!
-Jessy Wang, Senior Manager, DELL

We really enjoy the video at the end of the programme, as well as how Damien made his observations about our group behaviour and linked it to the corporate work culture. We also like how Damien brought in examples from other companies as illustrations so that we can understand how different or similar we are from other companies.
-Linette Lim, Director, SMU

The Facilitator, Damien was good in getting the people to be involved. Overall, the programme was managed very well by him. The kitchen was not fully equipped and that could possibly be the reason that it makes the cooking process interesting. The TEAM had to think of ways to barbeque the kebab, think of ways to pound the nuts etc.. Overall, an interesting experience and valuable time spent together with the TEAM!
-Evelyn Tan, Vice President, United Overseas Bank

The TEAM was welcoming. It is never easy to manage programmes. The intention to improve communications amongst staff was achieved with them getting to know each other better, not just in the usual working setting but also in different situations like this. Job well done. Special thanks to Damien.
-Cheok Kai Weei, Finance Director, DPF Pte Ltd

Damien did an excellent job of organising the teambuilding activities at Xishuangbanna. My TEAM mixed of travel agents, corporate clients and Mount Faber, tremendously enjoyed ourselves, especially when we were the winning team! Thank you for the good work done.

Excellence team you have that made the programme a success. Positive feedback from the participants and we are looking forward to have more opportunity to have fun with FOCUS Adventure.
- Seow Ping, Bromma Asia

Thank you for an incredible teambuilding activities full of fun, bonding, mini challenges – a programme that will be of benefit to us forward moving. Although we were initially disappointed that we had to move the programme indoor due to pouring rain, but was thankful the rain cleared as soon as we were about to start!

Damien was wonderful guy to work with. The entire crew had so much energy in them which in turn lifted our spirits high after a long day of conference session and led us to a fun filled programme!

The programme was delivered with absolute precision and ended off in time for refresh before dinner! I would have no hesitation in doing another programme with your FOCUS again, certainly our number 1 choice! Thank you!”
-Theresa Lee, Head of MICE. FCm Travel Solutions Singapore

Thanks again and we look forward to working with you again on future programmes.
