Making Teams organised a half day Amazing Chase Team Building event & activity in Hua Hin on the 18th August 2017 for 48 delegates from Wurth Electronik Singapore. The event took place in and around the seaside resorts of Cha-am and Hua Hin.
The event began with the briefing and team allocation by the lead event facilitator at Novotel Resort and Spa Cha-am – Hua Hin. Each team was allocated a facilitator and then teams competed in an ice breaking activity called Line me up where they had to line up in orders using non-verbal communication.

Their journey took their through the stunning countryside to an ATV park, a Muay Thai boxing gym, Wat Khao Takieb temple with amazing views of Hua Hin coastline and to Hua Hin city centre to a traditional market stall before racing to the finish line at the hotel.
