Yesterday’s activity was spot on. I am sure you get similar feedback from other companies but I will add my name to that list – Giles was fantastic! He took the very simple brief I provided and was masterful in weaving it into the theme of the morning’s strategic discussion. He delivered and did it brilliantly.

Water Care

Corporate Challenge ran a fun teambuilding exercise for our Strategy and Finance team “The Fugitive”. The team really enjoyed it and I had a lot of positive comments from colleagues when I turned up to work this morning. It was awesome that no-one had prior knowledge of how to complete the activities we had to undertake so it was a genuine challenge for everyone!

Meridian Energy Limited

We recently did the Great Race which was very well organised and run. There were many different activities and challenges suited to a wide range of people and personalities, which ensured the whole team enthusiastically joined in. Great fun and would recommend.

ASCC Limited

The feedback we’ve received has been great, and I’ve also had a few suppliers who had said they’ll probably contact me to get your contact details, as the challenge we did is something they’d like to do with their own companies – so that’s great!

We had a ball, it was such a great way to break the ice and have people mixing with people they’d never met before – which put a few peeps outside their comfort zone…….which is a great thing!

Thanks again, and no doubt we’ll work together again in the future!
