Company / People
The company based mainly in South Africa brought their delegates to Club Med for an incentive trip and corporate meeting and as part of their 4 day visit they requested an off-site team building event via their organiser Millennium travel. We were asked to proposed an Amazing Race style event utilizing local transport and incorporating local life and culture in the half day program.
The objectives for this event were to provide delegates with a competitive team building event whilst affording time to relax and enjoy the local culture and lifestyle of Phuket. Teams took part in a variety of cultural and activity challenges. For each activity, they required leadership, strategy, communication, planning and interpretation to complete the activity and move on in the race.
Teams were set the task of completing a total of 7 challenges, 2 at the resort and 5 outside the resort. The challenges were a mixture of local culture and activities based at different locations. These included learning to Thai dance, do a Muay Thai boxing routine, make a fly and traditional bamboo kite, make and eat spicy papaya salad. Teams also had to use their bargaining skills to buy souvenir items for the best prices and be creative in our group jump rope and sand sculpture challenges before racing to reach the finish line first.
