putri pacific

The obstacle challenges made everyone forgo their individual mindset and allowed us to discuss, listen and follow a common direction to achieve the goals. Most of the times everyone has their individualistic mindset but FOCUS activities changed our perspective: to work in a team by putting our individual achievements aside. From my viewpoint, The Team Building Challenge! has certainly enabled the team to bond!

-Patricia Yeo, South East CDC

The session was wonderful, enjoyable, fun and fulfilling! It sure was a memorable experience for us, be it young or old ladies playing same games together to achieve and complete one goal with a good time. I can see that some are meant to be leaders and some are followers to ensure that we hit the target with the best time. You all have also helped to better our lives and to age gracefully. Keep up with the good work and would like to come back again in the near future. Thanks for the lovely slides which was very well taken by Ketut and also thanks to Facilitators James and Fabian for being so patient and helpful to us. We shall meet again.

The Energizers were a blast. I did not feel as corny or silly as I normally do with such games. Well done!
-STB

Activities were well organized.
-STB

The message that everyone in the organisation has equal value came across very strongly and we need to cast down the way we attached a perceived value to people in our team. It stuck in me real deep and has to a certain extent been life-transforming. I am referring to Loose Change – an Energizer in which the ladies and guys were given a dollar and cent value.
-STB

The Facilitators were effective and humorous!
-STB

The Facilitators were friendly and chirpy and this really made the whole session more lively. Keep it up!!!
