Every programme was fun but at the same time meaningful. The most memorable programme for me was the Low Wall and without a doubt the TCH. Even though I do not have a great fear for heights, but some portion on the tower really challenge my limit and even overcome it. Personally it makes me want to do everything over again. Thanks for the fun and enjoyable time.

It was a great programme! Mugan was professional and able to engage the TEAM very well. His TEAM of helpers were also efficient and very helpful.

The planning process was great. The execution was great too. Mugan brought in a lot of energy. He also communicated and checked with us if we should stopped because of the rain and carried on the activities after confirming. Despite the shorter than usual time given to complete the Team Challenge Hourglass, the programme was tweaked so that every participant had a meaningful experience. I must say the final jump was a memorable one for many of us.

I like to thank you for your team well-organise effort and the whole teambuilding experience an enjoyable and fruitful for our team.

On behalf of our organisation, we want to express our sincere thanks for the teambuilding programme that FOCUS Adventure team have conducted for us at Sentosa.

Not only the programme venue chosen was ideal for our teambonding session, the food catered as well we the activities planned for the whole day were perfect in creating the atmosphere for our employees to bond with each other.

Mostly importantly were the learning outcomes that were achieved after the day’s programme. We are really pleased that the teams were able to learn from the many interesting activities that FOCUS have conducted for us.

We certainly had a lot of fun and did get to know each other and ourselves better, especially when the team realized the power they had when they worked together towards a common goal.

FOCUS Adventure have done an outstanding job and we have no hesitation in recommending your company to our business associates.
